Nearby a railway station, but another FP hotel is very close, clarify which one you want to stay before reservation! Rooms are clean and cool interior decoration. Staff was nice and speak English well.
This is a 4/5 star hotel in South Namba Osaka. It's a modern Luxury hotel with all facilities that one can hope for, with large rooms, attached en suite bathroom, flat screen TV etc. It's a very clean, tidy, comfortable hotel with daily room service provided. Buffet-style breakfast consisted of varieties of eastern/western food & condiments to choose from, with desserts, fresh fruits, fruit juices, tea & coffee also included. This hotel is located on a busy main road, but all the amenities are also located very close by, such as JR subway station, restaurants, convenience stores, chemist shops, Shopping mall and even a gaming arcade around the block, which makes this hotel a perfect place to stay in Osaka. The Staff at this hotel deserve a Special Praise & Thanks for their Extraordinarily outstanding Customer Service, they were very polite, courteous and willing to assist their guests in every way! During our trip, my Mrs & I stayed in a few hotels in Japan but the Customer service Quality of FP Hotels South Namba Osaka, just surpassed every other hotel that we had stayed in. While departing the hotel, they even display a Placard for their valued guests -- Thanking them for their stay at the hotel & wishing them well for their onward journey etc. For that matter, we found that Japanese People were actually very friendly, helpful to tourists/visitors. They go out of their way to assist if requested, even if there's a communication problem. It's a Sad irony therefore, that Japanese are portrayed as a Barbaric race of people with the Stigma attached, through the Bloody Footage of Whaling etc. that we are so used to watching on TV every so often! But then again it's an irony with the realisation, that Whale Meat is not even a meal for the average people of Japan. From what I was told, that you wont find Whale Meat anywhere except in a few extremely expensive select Restaurants only. However, in conclusion, we had a Wonderful time in Japan and we probably will visit again. Malay Adhikari (Melbourne, Australia) Malay Adhikari Melbourne, Australia…
The bed and pillow were hard. Of all the hotels I’ve stayed at, they had the worst pillow. The bed cover and blanket were so uncomfortable. The positive thing is that they have free coffee/tea in the afternoon and you can use the pantry for some take away foods. There’s microwave and dining wares available. It’s also close to the train station - about 2minute walk. The reception area is decent and there’s convenience stores around. It’s also about 5minute walk to Don Quixote which is very convenient for late night until morning shopping.
As other reviewers have said, the hotel is in a great location - easy access to convenience stores (Family Mart, Lawson’s) and public transport (Dobutsuen mae subway and JR Shin Imamiya). Within walking distance to Tautenkaku, Daiso, and a mega Don Quixote etc. Rooms are small and basic (one pillow per person, for example) but very clean. Did not do hotel breakfast so can’t comment. My only complaint is that the tv channels are all in Japanese - it would have been nice to have at least one international news channel!
I love this hotel because it was near multiple subway stations. Not to mention there is a direct line from airport to this hotel. I can’t say anything about the breakfast because we weren’t able to try it. But will definitely book here again next time!
