The hotel is located at the East side of Nanba station of Nankai line and it took just four minutes from the station to the hotel. There were lots of the restaurant around the hotel where I could eat Osaka's local food. The location was convenient. The room was small and old but clean. Free Wi-Fi was available but it... More

The staff of Nissei are friendly especially those who can speak Mandarin. Although it locates in a quiet street, it is in close proximity to shopping and dining district, I did read the hotel reviews from TripAdvisor on Nissei before my Osaka trip and had high expectation on it. Yet when I got to my room, I was a bit... More

If you're just looking for a place to stay that is convenient and affordable, look no further—Business Hotel Nissei is the place for you. It is not the fanciest place to stay at, but it certainly will do. The location is fantastic as it is located right in the middle of Nanba. Sennichimae is just outside the front door, Dotonbori...

The hotel is conveniently located, close to the Dōtonbori canal and Denden Town district. There are a lot of shops and restaurants in the area as well. The room size was ok, I expected it to be even smaller. It was clean and I had everything I needed. I could not make the Wifi work though. I think the room... More

The hotel is near everything. The train is walking distance. There is a near mall. And when you go outside the hotel there are a lot of restaurants. The free breakfast is fair (bread, juice) for the price of the stay. There is also free water at the lobby. We just encounter small problem, when I am borrowing the key... More

Stayed here for the last 3 days of our trip. Fantastic location in the small alleys on the side of Namba Nankei Station. Heaps of small hole-in-the-wall bars and restaurants in the area. Also walking distance to shopping in the long malls (walking streets) of Osaka, and shops in the station building itself. Small hotel, friendly staff, free breakfast (although... More

It's a really cheap hotel in a good location between Namba and Nippombashi stations, with lots of options for eating out. Kuromon Ichiba is 2 minutes away and a very nice breakfast option (otoro sushi anyone?). Takashimaya & Big Camera are 5 minutes away and Dotonbori is just a little further. The area is also safe and not shady at... More

This hotel ticks all the boxes of what I looked for in a budget hotel. Make sure you print out a map from the hotel website if arriving by train. The map with landmarks is easy to follow.

Stayed 4 nights in a single room in November 2014. The size of the room is typical for most Japanese hotels, i.e. tiny but cosy and relatively comfortable for a good night's sleep. The room was well-maintained and housekeeping did an excellent job of tidying my room everyday. Amenities such as hair dryer and toiletries are provided. The free simple... More

The room is small, but have all the basic equipment. The sound proof is not very well, can hear sounds from hall and next room. Location is very good, easy to travel everywhere. Staff are very helpful! Can keep luggage advanced and after check out is convenient and friendly service.
