If you still have the impression of questioning Japanese English standard. The professional hotel service associates will change your thought upside down. Ranging from Concierge team to Front Desk even Housekeeping team. None of them will let you down. And of course their service standard is always of top notch.

Nice rooms, to be honest, I expected it to be bigger but the size is alright. Super comfy beds. I cannot speak more highly of the beds. Free wifi available. Location is superb - located right above the Namba train station, takashimaya and 10-15mins walking distance from the heart of Osaka, Dontobori and it's shopping places.
