Smile Hotel Namba, Osaka
A smile is worth a thousand words..
Upon arriving, found out that my luggage did not get here front desk Morimoto asked for my receipt and asked Japan postal for me. Found out my name was not on label but I got my luggage later that nite. Front desk speaks enough English for me..only wish their name on nametag was in English. Kohei always greeted me upon arriving. Breakfast was Japanese style so some Westerners may not like it, but I love This kind of food, was healthy and delicious. There was always coffee and hot tea! Room was quiet and comfortable but the maid came in twice on different days while I was in the shower. I know I put the sign out! I am glad that I had 2 pillows instead of one. Hotel was hard to find on a rainy day, and really no restaurant around except Royal Host plus a Coffee Shop but it closes early. Maybe some of you want to go to Dotombori Street. I come to Japan to see old friends and eat this healthy cuisine

The Frown Hotel Namba
We arrived there around 2 had to wait till exactly 3 to check-in. The bed was extremely small for two people so we were very uncomfortable the whole time. Everything seemed like it hadn't been cleaned properly and felt dingy. The bathroom was tiny and had a terrible smell the whole time we were there. The breakfast was bare bones and bad. The location wasn't even worth while since we had to take the subway to get to dotonburi everyday since there is nothing around the hotel. The costs add up every time so you're spending more money just to get around and find a decent breakfast. I would highly recommend staying somewhere else since the price is not worth cutting corners for comfort and cleanliness.
