Osaka View Hotel Honmachi ticked all the boxes for our enjoyable 5-night stay in Osaka. It’s not exactly a budget (cheap) hotel when in Japan, but this accommodation offers a good price and a good value for money. We chose to stay here because of its prime location. Hommachi is on the Midosuji line and that is the main line accessible for most of the tourist spots. The central location makes it easy to get to the top-rated attractions in Osaka. In this post, I’m sharing a review of the hotel and our personal experience. If you’re planning to visit Osaka for a vacation, holiday, or shopping, keep Osaka View Hotel Honmachi in mind! 🙂
Review of Osaka View Hotel Honmachi (Osaka, Japan)
Interiors of Osaka View Hotel Honmachi have a contemporary corporate feel, in an elegant and pleasant way. The reception area offers ample seating with potted greenery adding a nice touch. The cream, caramel, and brown color scheme is livened up with with pops of art on the walls.
Across the reception counter is a restaurant at the lobby lounge with a breakfast buffet option (Western and Asian food) for guests. It’s open until late at night where hotel guests can enjoy complimentary drinks and light snacks. This dining area features a clean and simple aesthetic.
My mom, sister, husband, and I stayed in one room (24 m²/258 ft²) with 2 single beds and 2 futons. Room was tidy and the space was enough for light travelers like us. Bedding was top quality and we slept very well. All bathroom amenities were provided. Other room amenities included: flat-screen TV, air conditioning, air purifier, alarm clock, blackout curtains, heating, humidifier, bathrobes, slippers, soundproofing, clothes rack and hangers, electric tea pot with mugs, in-room safe box, and free Wi-Fi.
Not all staff can speak in Chinese and English but this isn’t a problem if you have Google Translate. Just enter your own words/language and present your phone and they can also do the same! Staff were responsive, helpful, and very polite and courteous. Check in time is 3:00pm, and check out time is 11:00 am. We justify our luggage in the hotel in the morning upon checkout and returned for our departure to the airport without a problem.
