Great location and plenty of amenities”

Plenty of amenities and helpful staffs

we stayed at this hotel for four nights. it is situated in the dotonbori district, and is near to namba station. it is almost impossible to miss, because of the four bizarre statues outside of the front. this hotel is only a 3-5 minute walk from either the namba train station or the ocat (osaka airport limo bus) service where for only jpy 1,800 pp, you can purchase a roundtrip ticket to/from the osaka airport. there are plenty of food around there hotel area and some even 24hours. free 5 minutes international phone calls everyday, coffee/tea/bottled water, pants press, bicycles, women's beauty packs, packaged washcloths, wifi, desktop & laptop computers, printer, luggage scale, shoe shine machine. the rooms are plain but clean and come with tv, free wi-fi, air purifier, hot water pot and complimentary water. pajamas and slippers are provided. the bed is comfortable enough for me. vending machines, microwaves and ice machines are available on most floors. ladies staying at the hotel will be given a 'ladies set' containing various toners, lotions, cotton buds, masks etc. the bathroom is super small and only one person can be in there at a time. if it gets rainy in osaka, don't worry as the lobby has umbrellas for the guest to use freely. and for the price in such an excellent location, i will stay here again!

A great place to start exploring Osaka from”

Great location, Lots of free extras, good service

Dotonbori is located on the exciting night life that runs alongside the Dotonbori canal. It is relatively close to Namba station, and directions are plentiful on their website. You won't be able to miss the four large head statues out the front that give it a quirky feel. All the famous sights, restaurants and shopping of the Namba area are within walking distance. A great place to throw yourself into the everyday food culture and craziness if you haven't been to Japan before. The hotel sits just on the quieter section of Dotonbori (though there are plenty of restaurants open late around it, it is relatively quiet compared to the masses of crowds starting when you cross Midosuji Avenue to the East). The super-long Shinsaibashi shopping arcade intersects with Dotonbori nearby, and can leave you lost in wonder. The hotel is typically Japanese like in its service. It provides you with all the basic amenities to make your stay pleasant, including the ability to make an overseas phone call to let your loved ones know that you are okay! Other freebies are available in the lounge, though being so close to lots of cheap food we chose to forego the free snacks and drinks and lost ourselves in food stalls nearby instead. The rooms are modest but clean. Typical Japanese pre-fabricated bathrooms can seem small if you've never been to a hotel in Japan but fairly standard for this type of city hotel. You'll need to leave the keys at the desk (but they are clunky anyway and you probably didn't want to bring them along), but don't fret because it is a 24-hour reception desk and isn't really a bother. Free wireless, just ask at the desk. Overall, a solid location, good service, and the room itself is modest but has free wifi which makes it a great base to travel for however long you intend to explore Namba, or the Osaka region in general due to proximity to train station.

Fantastic”

Excellent Services, Friendly and Caring Staffs

We were intended to stay in Dotonbori Hotel during our holiday in Osaka. Unfortunately, during check in time, we had been told by the receptionist that they have to transfer us to another hotel due to the rooms under maintenance. Under the care of the hotel manager, he has escorted us to the a luxury 5 star hotel which they are going to compensate us. Due to the high occupancy, we had been upgraded to Deluxe Suite(or Executive Club Suite), which may cost more than SGD1,100.00 per night. We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude to Dotonbori Hotel, especially the Hotel Manager for the excellent services and fantastic arrangement. The attention given to us was just overwhelming. Your generosity would not be easily forgotten, and we would recommend your hotel to anyone who is looking for accommodation in Osaka. We will certainly be back for more of the same. Keep up the good work!!!

Close proximity to Namba station & shopping”

Enjoyed the close proximity to dotonburi & lots of happenings around our hotel. Travelling to & fro from the Namba station to many places of interests was easy too. From exit 25, only 5 mins walk back to hotel. Hotel staff were friendly & helpful. Many staff are able to speak Mandarin or English. Special thanks to Ms Ko & a Chinese speaking staff from Taiwan. They helped to answer many of our travel routes enquiries and recommended a good restaurant. The hotel also provides free ramen,wine & beer at 10.30pm every nite. Enjoyed it all & especially the massage chairs after a day of walking. Overall, a really pleasant stay, though last 2 nites we experienced no water supply issue, they were quick to make arrangements to help us. A big thank you to all staff & management of Dotonbori Hotel to make our stay in Osaka a wonderful experience. .

Although the standard twin room we stayed is the smallest room we have ever stayed, the hotel itself does make up the size of the room. The location is excellent, only couple of minutes away from Namba station and the busy Dotonbori shopping area. A Lawson convenient store is next door. They offer free coffee or tea at the lobby, surprisingly taste very good, a nice touch when you come back from outside in a cold winter night. They also offer free Ramen and beer every night. Staffs are friendly and willing to help. We will definitely stay in Dotonbori Hotel again the next time visit Osaka.

Great Location, Great Service but small rooms”

very convenient location, great service comparable to five star hotels

the hotel is very conveniently located along dotonbori street. just cross the street and all the food stores are within reach. double room category is small and cramp, although i got the chance to see a much bigger room when one of the rooms are being cleaned. the bathroom is also small but well equiped. bathroom in cruise ships are bigger. what surprised me and makes me want to return to this hotel is its service...friendly staff, free wifi in both lobby and rooms, welcome gift for ladies and kids, free bicycle, bed guard, kiddie toys and baby crib, well detailed tourist map and info book for guidance with complete list of good restaurants and transporation details in taking a subway, free coffee/tea/water at the lobby and more! their service beats most 4-5 star hotels who dont even offer free wifi. once i could not connect to the room wifi as well as requested for a knife, the reception personally went to my room in less than 5 mins. the walk from namba station is 10 mins leisure walk along ebisubashi street. i will definitely return to this hotel when i get back to osaka. i hope their service will be the same.

Review of Dotonbori Hotel, Osaka”

The hotel was in a very central location, had friendly and helpful staff, a cable for high speed internet, and was very clean.
The bathroom was very small, and I didn't like that I had to pay for a late checkout.

The Dotonbori Hotel in Osaka was a very good hotel. Centrally located, less than five minutes from the shopping districts of Dotonbori and Shinsaibashi, it's right in the centre of the action. It's also just a ten minute walk to the Nankai Namba station. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was clean and had a cable for high speed internet which was very useful. The only downside was the small bathroom, with approximately one square metre of floor space, but I hear this is common in Japan. I'd recommend the hotel.

This is my 3rd time in Osaka. For this trip, I stayed in 3 different hotel, Aston hotel, Nikko airport hotel & Dotonbori in deed warm my heart:) The hotel provide activities like kimono wearing, local food tasting & childhood games with freebies! The most memorable one is the staffs tip TOP services!! Every individual are well trained by the hotel & they performed to the best of their ability! From being a handyman, helping me to unlock my luggage which I accidentally forgotten my password, to unlocking the washroom door in the middle of the night as my mum carelessly locker it. On top of that, staffs also helped to make reservation for salon & they also have me to contact hospital as my mum was unwell. With all the above mentioned, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all staffs & management of Dotonbori Hotel! You have a superb team & I will definitely return again!

Great Value and Location ”

Stayed in Osaka for one night on a stopover on the way to Kyoto. Dotonbori Hotel was the perfect place to stay.. only 10 minute walk from the Namba station and perfectly located a stones throw from the restaurant, shopping, and nightlife of Dotonbori and Namba. Clean rooms, nice breakfast with both western and traditional Japanese dishes. Very friendly staff, and accommodating of English speaking guests.

Great location, free extras, easy to get to and from airport”

A great hotel with lots of extras as others have mentioned. I really enjoyed using the excellent massage chairs in the lobby. Coffee is not provided in the room but there is a coffee machine downstairs in the lobby that dispenses instant-tasting coffee. Kettles are still provided in the room (for the provided green tea sachets), so, if you are a coffee snob, bring your own coffee, or, get one at the many good coffee shops nearby. We had an excellent espresso at a nearby Italian cafe. Drip coffee appears to be the default at Japanese establishments rather than espresso, and it seems to be generally of a good quality. I was concerned that the free beer/ ramen at night would entail rowdiness at night, but all noise died down (just a little loud talking) around 11pm surrounding our rooms and we had a restful sleep. Location is fantastic, next to America-Mura area, and also adjacent to Dotonbori, only a few minutes walk to each. Excellent proximity to Nankai Namba station for the airport line. Also very close to Namba subway station. Room itself was very clean, bathroom spotless, the room was big enough to feel comfortable and not cramped, bed was super comfortable.

I LOVE DOTONBORI HOTEL”

Its my second time in Osaka, Japan, we booked this hotel thru Agoda. Our expectations were more than met, we arrived at around 11:00 and our room is ready, unlike in other hotels you cannot check in before their scheduled time. All the drinks in the ref are free and these are re-filled everyday. They also serve ramen soup every night at 10:00 and guess are really looking forward to it every night. There is also free flowing coffee at the lobby and massage chairs where one can rest after a very long day of walk. One can also have the chance to dress the kimono (Tuesday- Thursady and take pictures and there is a game that one can play and win prizes every Friday. Best of all the hotel is clean and the staff are all very friendly and accommodating making the whole stay at Dotonbori Hotel a pleasurable experience.

Great value with lots of perks!”

We spent one night here at ~$100 (USD), and it felt like a great value. Some of the things we really liked: - 3 massage chairs in the lounge, though they ask you to limit each use to 15 minutes - A machine that makes coffee and tea for free in the lounge - Every night, they have a "happy hour" with free ramen and beer, and it's all-you-can-eat and drink until they run out! They were both pretty good. - You can borrow lots of useful things from the front desk, like plug adapters and umbrellas. - They will hold your luggage before/after checkout. - The toilets are nice and heated in typical Japanese fashion, and the shower had good water pressure and heated up quickly. - They offer discounts to many nearby attractions, and we were able to get discounted tickets to the aquarium. - You can purchase breakfast, which is a buffet. It had a mixture of Western and Japanese style items. They even have an area where they'll heat up bread, pancakes, and other things for you; not freshly made, but still tasty. There was a very large selection of food. It was only about $9 USD per person, so it was a good value. - Great location along the crazy Dotonbori street, just a block or two from Glico Man. Fortunately, since it's a block from the action, it was nice and quiet. It is also very close to Namba station, about a 4-minute walk. A minor complaint is that the rooms have thin walls so voices in the hallway and adjacent room were quite audible. People were generally considerate of this so, at nighttime, we were able to sleep with the help of a white noise app on my phone. Also, the beds weren't the most comfortable, but they were tolerable. We definitely enjoyed our stay and would be happy to come back if we can visit Osaka again!

Great amenities and location”

Lots of free amenities, great location

during the last week of april, my wife and i stayed at the dotonbori hotel for one night in the small double room we all know japan’s reputation for small hotel rooms, but this double on the sixth floor was adequately sized. we had no difficulty moving around the room (granted my wife and i aren’t big). the room was good and clean. the bed was comfortable and the shower had good water pressure. service was very good. the hotel staff were all friendly and accommodating. amenity-wise, the hotel was excellent. wired lan and wifi internet is available in the room for free. you can also rent a laptop for free. they offer discount coupons for some of the surrounding restaurants. the lobby also has wifi and computers with free internet and printer use. the lobby also provides free international calls (first five minutes) and beverages for guests. another free amenity: bicycle rental. another benefit of this hotel is its location. it’s located near the heart of osaka’s dotonbori/shinsaibashi area. the famous mechanical crab and glico billboard is less than a 10 minute walk away. namba station is also less than 10 minutes away. if you are spending most of your time exploring osaka and just need a simple area to sleep, then this hotel will more than fulfill your needs.

Amazing location and lots of amenities”

Located close to Osaka-Namba station and along the Dotonburi, you can't beat the value of the hotel. Walk right outside at night and you're at the liveliest place in Osaka for food lovers. The hotel also offers a lot of amenities, including free drinks in the mini-fridge in your room and free ramen in the lobby. We didn't eat try their breakfast (which you have to pay for, standard). The hotel rooms are a bit old, but nevertheless clean. Rooms are cramped and tiny as to be expected in Japan. Staff service was amazing, also to be expected in Japan, but we appreciated all the same. Highly recommend to anyone staying Osaka and wanting to spend their nights out at Dotonburi. You can drink away and stagger back to your room safely.

Reception area got free drink (hot and cold coffee, tea...), free 5min international call, free printer usage, massage chair, boot cleaner... then even free trial food on tuesday. The staff very friendly and helpful, when we need scissor to open our food, they even serve us a hot towel and chopstick, is it touch? And free bicycle to let us travel ard the town area. Room is small which is very common, but is clean and comfort. Full set of toiletries, and they give all girl a set of mask, and beauty supplies... how consideration they are :) We just left our luggage in the lobby early in the morning (the checkin is after 2pm), they even loaded our luggage in our room before we back to hotel.

Most fun hotel we've stayed at for a long time”

We stayed here for 3 nights and loved this hotel. The location is brilliant, with less than 5 minutes walk to Namba/Dotonbori area which is absolutely packed with great restaurants and shops. The lobby of the hotel has a very friendly atmosphere, with lots of seating including some massage chairs, and free events (including ramen and beer in the evening!). We had a lot of fun chatting with fellow guests. The hotel provided free pocket Wi-Fi, and although the room was tiny, it had all the amenities we could wish for (air-conditioning, air purifier, air humidifier, kettle, hairdryer, toiletries, foot massager!) Lastly the staff were brilliant and even seemed to enjoy their jobs! Great place to stay and excellent value.

EXCELLENT LOCATION, FRIENDLY STAFF SERVICES AND CONVENIENT”

We lived there for 2 nights after Kyoto, and found this hotel in Namba area, which is just at the start of Dotonbori street ( quieter) but you can walk all the way to both unlimited food restaurants and shops around.......It is excellent for all tourists which want to explore the night life, shopping and japanese foods as it saves you a lot of time in taking public transport. Plus it is also only 10 min walk to the Limousine bus terminal ( Namba OCAT) which you can take the bus to Kyoto or Kansai airport. Staffs are very friendly and helpful. 100/100.
