Central, clean, well airconditioned room... Staff were friendly and helpful, they gave us the wrong room at first but were apologetic and got it sorted quickly.

Located in an excellent location (right next to Dotombori), Yamatoya Honten makes it very easy to have a late night out without the need to take expensive cabs. Its facilities are excellent, with a great public bath, very clean rooms, and comfortable beds. The rooms are made to look like traditional ryokan, which is a nice touch. Can't recommend it enough, though backpackers may want to look for somewhere cheaper.

The location is really great. It just takes a few minutes to dotombori. Moreover, the staffs are really nice.

Your hostel was in a very good location with restaurants, cafes, and shopping. It was clean and the staff were very professional. Yes, I would stay here again and I would refer my friends too. Thank you for all your help and for the excellent service.

Great hotel with Ryokan feel (tatami mats and futons). Location is fantastic - right next to Dotonbori. Staff were very helpful and nice. Rooms and bathrooms were clean and tidy. Staff make beds for you while you're out exploring Osaka! Free tea and snacks!

the tatami's were a fun break from the very small western style hotels we had been staying in. much more spacious and the private bathrooms are a must for the extra pesos. great english speaking staff..futons were super comfortable

The staff of this hotel are wonderful. On several occasions we were giving free tea in our room. The room was a good size for two. The hotel itself is also in the perfect spot for those who wish to explore Namba/Dotonbori at night. There are plenty of great places to eat nearby.

The two people who made our beds up were very nice and we all enjoyed our conversations with them very much.

I chose the hotel largely for the location and can't complain. Was good to sleep on a tatami and the staff were excellent.

Great location, close to Dotonburi and only a couple of minutes' walk from the subway. Room was excellent - all you could wish for.
