Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The location is excellent because it is quite close to train stations (jr, subway) and there are many restaurants & mini marts nearby. The owner is so nice and friendly. He can speak English very well. The room is big enough to put the big suitcases and 2 futons. We are happy with the room. The dining room and kitchen are well designed and clean. We can cook there. The bathroom is quite big and always clean. We love it. We will stay there again if we go to Osaka.
