Positive Reviews

Great central location

Guests were upbeat about the location right above Namba train station. This was super convenient for guests using the train that connects to Kansai International Airport. Shopaholics were positive too, admiring the hotel's proximity to Takashiyama department store plus many shopping and dining options in the immediate vicinity and nearby Dotonbori district. Reviewers were impressed with the views from rooms and especially the upper floors.

Rooms were clean and comfortable

Most reviewers reported that the guest rooms were well-appointed, modern, clean and comfortable. Quite a few said the rooms were fairly spacious.

Top customer service and good food

Customer service was reportedly of a high standard, according to many reviewers. Staff were largely described as well-trained, friendly, helpful and approachable. English was reportedly spoken widely by employees. Diners were also positive about the good food and service at the hotel's impressive array of restaurants and bars.

Negative Reviews

Pricey extras

Some guests, especially those paying a premium to stay during peak times, were disappointed by the number of hotel services that attracted extra charges. Costs for things like parking and breakfast for guests in standard rooms soon mounted up, according to several guests. There was criticism for the way only guests in upgrade rooms got free access to the spa and health club facilities, while others faced charges for swimming.

Some disappointed by rooms and facilities

Some critics encountered air-conditioning problems, dim lighting and drainage problems in the rooms. There were claims that some rooms had been more-recently remodelled than others, which were occasionally tired-looking with aging carpets. A few guests said sometimes housekeeping appeared not to have cleaned the rooms satisfactorily.

Light sleepers bothered by noise

Soundproofing was poor according to some light sleepers who could occasionally hear noise from adjacent rooms.
