Slightly old-fashioned business hotel, convenient for visiting Osaka university. Small room but with bed that can be raised to any height to make space- feels like something out of a Jack Lemmon film. Excellent communal bath on the top floor with view of Osaka. All you can eat breakfast was clearly appreciated by a party of high-school baseball players who...

It is a real budget hotel, you need to walk at least 15 mins to subway station @ Esaka and exit No 1-5 and turn left to the bridge and turn right to go down the stair and walk straight for min 10-15mins walk to reach the hotel. It is a quiet town but no worry, there's a 24 hours...

The hotel was great, they give us an air purifier, and free coffee in the reception desk. But when i stay there the heater was too hot (cause i came in winter), so i'll open the window through the night.

I paid something like £23 a night to stay here and boy was it worth it. First of all, they have this really clever mechanism where you can raise your bed up to the ceiling so all of a sudden you have all this SPACE when you aren't sleeping. The luxury! I could have stayed there for days. It could...

The GR Hotel Esaka is a typical case of getting what you paid for -- I paid under €30 per night for a single ensuite room, and so did not expect luxurious sprawling suites. What I got was a very small (small-even-for-Japan), but clean room. If you're used to travelling in Japan and are looking for a budget hotel that...

The location of the hotel is quite far except the mini market around the corner. It took 7 minutes to walk to the nearest metro station. The room is really small and the sound insulation in the room is rally bad.

Do not stay more than one night, room really small and not update. The 4x4 bathroom is not clean including toilet,lavatory and shower. No people at the reception speak english or other language than japanese. Far from all activities.

This hotel has seen better days, pls do not stay here. Rooms are extremely small and not well maintained. There is hardly any space to keep your bags. Breakfast is average. Its about 20 min train ride away from Osaka. Do not stay here, bad place

Stayed a week, room was small but good enough since I was by myself. Haven't tried the bath on the 11th floor though and sauna was under maintenance. 7-eleven and supermarket 24h very close to the hotel so very convenient. 5 min walk from Esaka station which is on midosuji line so around 20 min from Namba, Dotonburi etc.. very...
