Hotel New Hankyu Osaka Reviews
Very noisy location Jun 09, 2010
I chose the New Hankyu Hotel Osaka because of the convenient location, just across the street from JR Osaka station. This turn out to be a big mistake. The hotel is sandwiched between a busy street, JR train tracks and the Hankyu train tracks. Obviously not a place to get a good rest.
Since I had "lost" a night flying in from Europe I asked for a quiet room. The receptionist smiled and said "of course". When I got to my floor, had turned left and right, walked down three corridors I arrived at my room at the very end of the hallway. When I opened the door I thought I had entered a sauna. I immediately tried to open the window, but that was not possible, it was sealed. I called the reception and after waiting half an eternity I guy came with a tool and opened it. Great! It turned out that my room was right next to 12 pairs of train tracks - very quiet indeed!!!!
I left the window open and went out. Very bad idea! On the ground floor was the shopping malls food court. The stench of fried food was sucked in through the ventilation system and spewed out and up to my room. When I returned it smelled of fried food.
The room was small and the bathroom even smaller. It had TV (Japanese channels only), coffee/tea making facilities and free WI-FI if you brought your own laptop. If not, you could rent one for ¥1200 (1 night/2 days) or you could use one of the two PC in the lobby which charged ¥100 pr 10 minutes (no printer).
Breakfast was not included. At the coffee shop or in the restaurant in the lobby you could have American breakfast (¥2450), Continental breakfast (¥1270) or Japanese breakfast (¥1920).
There was also a jewellery shop, a flower shop and a beauty parlor in the lobby. The airport limousine center is right next to the hotel (¥1500 one way/¥2700 round trip).
The location of New Hankyu Hotel Osaka is very convenient, but it is too noisy for my liking so I will not stay here again.
