Great location for a great hotel Wifi not complimentary. At a rate of $17/day I think it is too expensive...

Ive stayed at the Ginza location and thought Id give this one a try. They are pretty much identical- clean modern excellent location and courteous staff #40then again it is Japan#41. About 2 min from the subway and 4 from the JR station. From Kansai take JR train to Tennoji and then JR Osaka loop to Kyobashi Station. This took me less than an hour. Most of Osaka is about 10 min by subway from here. There is a well stocked convenience store and coffee shop on the ground floor and a few across the street. Across the street are also a shopping/restaurant complex and the Panasonic headquarters complex which has two floors of excellent restaurants #40catering to workers in the area so its good and fairly priced#41 and of course the cool Panasonic showroom. Another eating option is the Daiei department store next to Kyobashi Station. They have tons of prepared food as well as a big grocery store. As for safety of the area I dont remember seeing homeless people anywhere. And even if I did I always felt safe everywhere I went in the area- Im from a nice middle class area in the SF bay area and feel 10x safer in Osaka. I didnt even bother to take my laptop off of the desk when I went out during the day. The hotel does not have wifi #40surprisingly#41 but has free Ethernet- cable provided. *figure out how to turn your laptop into a hotspot and youre set!* I would stay here again and probably look for their chain on my next trip to Japan.
I planned a last minute trip to Kyoto, Japan. Although, initially I was disappointed that I couldn't stay in Kyoto (the hotels were all filled up), I eneded up being very glad that I stayed at Hotel Monterey, Osaka. The proximity (1/2 block) from the Osaka train station was terrific, and I used this train station as my hub to go to Kyoto, Nara, and Kobe. Also, the trip from the Osaka airport wasn't too bad at all. The thing I liked best about this hotel was how clean it was, and how comfortable the bed was. I don't know if this is common for all hotels in Japan, but I was glad to find these features in Hotel Monterey, Osaka. One thing I didn't like was that the restaurants in the hotel were quite pricey for me, and the hours limited. I also found it very confusing to find the hotel from the train station on the first day I arrived. There is another review that gives specific directions from the train station. I will see if I can find that again and add it onto this post. It's not the most spectacular hotel, but it did the job for me! Kyoto and surrounding areas are exquisite - have a wonderful trip!
A great hotel for a family on a budget. The quality is very high. Rooms are comfortable (but Japanese-cozy sized). The two best features was free internet that worked straightaway, and its location next to the Osaka train station. I give it only fair marks for safety and security because the lobby is on the 8th floor and the elevators are not keyed at the ground floor entrance (although there is door staff at the hotel entrance), and the windows actually open up onto little balconies/platforms that wrap around the building. That said, I never did feel uncomfortable about the arrangements.
During a one month visit to the Kansai area this was the best hotel I stayed at among several in both Osaka and Kyoto including two 'luxury' hotels. The ANA Crowne knows about balance of service. The entire staff was professional, well organized and provided the smoothest, most comfortable and truly accommodating environment. Everyone knew what they were doing and worked well as an efficient skilled team. I have only praise for this hotel. I travel in Japan often and I plan to make The ANA Crowne my first and probably only choice in Osaka.
the room is clean, the bathroom is correct, the swimming pool and the sana excellent the level of English of the staff !
El hotel tiene una ubicación céntrica cerca de la estación de Osaka. Buena ubicación para usar el transporte público e ir de compras. El desayuno era estupendo y a gusto de los que éramos. Es la segunda vez que me alojo aquí y volvería de nuevo.
Este hotel está muy cerca de la estación de Osaka y era de fácil acceso a pie. El personal era muy agradable y nos registramos con mucha rapidez. El hotel no se ha reformado en un tiempo. No era el lugar más limpio que nos alojamos en Japón. Las sábanas estaban sucias y había pelos en el suelo del baño. Olía a tabaco, aunque era una habitación libre de humo.
