This is a traditional Japanese ryokan style hotel so be prepared that the service and rooms are not like a traditional western style hotel. They are very friendly and speak good English are are willing to help you out as necessary. The location is perfect, as it is in walking distance to many good restaurants and shopping. It is also...

The room service is so nice. They help you setup your bed and refill anything that you are missing or not missing lol. I said that is because we still have tooth brush but they gave us more. If you ever get a chance to come to Osaka you have to stay in this hotel.

Yamatoya Honten is very close to the night life district of Osaka. Sitting on a river across from a giant crab and neon lights will remind you of that. However, the hotel itself is quite nice and clean and not very far from the nearest subway stop. The room itself was quite spacious and the room we had (top floor)...

We took 2 rooms for five of us. Generally, the rooms are clean and comfortable. Japanese snacks and tea are always replenished. Then ensuite bathroom room is very small but well equipped with a mini bathtub, WC and sink. Toothbrush and toothpaste are provided. There is an in-house onsen at the basement for separate genders. Small but good enough. Bathrobe...

The hotel is situated really close to the entrance of Dotonburi street so its close to alot of really good places to eat, and the best Round 1 entertainment plaza ever in the world.

Used this ryokan for a few nights at the end of two weeks in Japan. Eight mat room is spacious by Japanese standards and quite comfortable.
