And overall, I'm pleased. Yes the rooms are kinda dingy. Plenty of hot water in the shower, though, and the kitchen facilities are adequate. Free coffee in the morning if you're up early enough. The laundry machines are cheap. Detergent is available for a good price. I paid over 100 USD for a similar room in Manhattan. So for this... More

This is quite possible the most AWFUL place I have ever stayed at. Yeah, its cheap, but it's infested with roaches (big ones). We had to sleep with the lights on just to keep them at bay. The hotel is also generally NOT clean. The showers are gross, the communal sinks are gross and the rooms are gross. The sheets... More

I have stayed here for a short one day trip because of it's location and price. I've paid about 1.5k per night from hotel sites and was very surprised what my 1.5k fetched, The location of this hotel is VERY near exit 4 of "dobutsuenmae station", midosuji line. From the airport, take the nankai line to "Shin Imamiya station" and... More

Location – It’s easy to find, right outside of a municipal train station, down the block from a JR station and a short walk from a bus stop to/from Itami. The neighborhood is a bit worn down, but the hotel is near a DonQuijote and a Daiso in addition to being a short distance from Tenoji Zoo and other attractions.... More

The best thing for the hotel is the location which is really near the Shinimamiya station (covered by jr pass). For the room, you get what you paid. Really small and the smell of tatami is not good. There are only 4 shower rooms and we have to wait. But over all. Thats okay

I stayed here for two nights as a short weekend city break. The hotel is conveniently located at the Dobutsumae Station. Take Exit 2 and you’ll see the hotel. Check-in staff is friendly and efficient. Plenty of English instructions in the hotel. My room is a nice western room without toilet. There isn’t much space in the room but it... More

I'll start off with the location, which is great. It's very close to the JR Shin Imamiya station and the Dobutsuen-Mae subway station is right outside the hotel lobby door, so getting to sites and day trips was seamless. The rooms, were very basic. The first room we were in on the 2nd floor (for 1 night only) which was... More

This budget hotel is located in a bit of a sleazy but lively area where you can have food and drinks until late at night, all within walking distance of Shin-Imamiya station on the Kanzai (airport) line. We had a nice but small Japanese tatami room with a window we had to close during the day because of pigeons. The... More
