Osaka Hotels & Accommodations
Cheapest and best places to stay
Fraser Residence Nankai Osaka
1-7-11 Nambanaka, Naniwa-ku, Osaka, Osaka Prefecture 556-0011, Japan (Shinsaibashi/Nanba/Tennoji/South Area)
There is much to rave about with the Osaka Frasure Hotel. Firstly it is locating just outside of the JR Namba Station, which is one of two hubs in Osaka (the other being Umeda), this means its a two minute walk from the platform to your hotel.
Secondly, the hotel rooms themselves are designed and structured as apartments, so every room has its own kitchen! Oh Joy! Most importantly however, all the rooms at the Fraser are designed in the modern Asian minimalism, so you'll be in some very hip quarters indeed.
Thirdly and lastly is the money. Quite mind-boggling is that the excellent price for the grade of quarters and location.
Single Occupant: $150
Double Occupant: $150
The Ritz-Carlton Osaka
2-5-25 Umeda, Kita-ku, Osaka, Osaka Prefecture 530-0001, Japan
You can't get any more luxurious than The Ritz. And with prices starting at only $350 its not as absurd as one would normally think!
The Ritz Carlton Osaka is perfectly located ten minutes by foot, West of Umeda Station (Osaka Station). There is also a shuttle from Kansai International Airport for those coming by plane.
As you would expect the Ritz's rooms are clean, classic and elegant, however starting to become dated. Despite that, the rooms are very spacious and comfortable. The hotel's facilities are excellent as you would expect; pool, spa, fitness center, massage, the works.
Being in Japan's Kitchen (Osaka), we suggest you hit the streets for your dining, however the restaurants at the Ritz are perfectly acceptable.
Single Occupant: $350
Double Occupant: $350
Hotel Universal Port
1-1-111 Sakurajima, Konahana-ku, Osaka, Osaka Prefecture 554-0031, Japan
Located in the Port of Osaka, the Universal Port hotel is away from the city center, but not too far. A 10 minute ride on the train (from Universal City Station) will bring you right into Umeda (Central Osaka)
The itself is huge, from its lobby and dining room to the rooms theselves; which are clean and modernly designed, however a little on the tacky side. But how can you complain when the fee is only $100 for a double occupant!? Not too shabby indeed. Top that off with free wifi and you're sound as a pound, baby.
Single Occupant: $100
Double Occupant: $100
2-3-25 Dotonbori Chuo-ku, Osaka, Osaka Prefecture 542-0071, Japan (Shinsaibashi/Nanba/Tennoji/South Area)
011 81 6-6213-9040
The Dotonbori has brilliant location (just a few minutes by foot to the heart of Namba-Osaka’s hub for food and entertainment) and absurdly low prices. So what’s the catch? Well, the rooms are clean and nice however they are rather small and quaint, but still modern. For $75 the rooms are actually quite nice, considering what you could be getting else-where. Perhaps, we at ExploringTokyo.com have become spoiled with our luxury hotels that we’ve lost sight!
Other points of mention is the unforgettable and hideous edifice, which however makes life easier as you’ll never forget what the hotel looks like once you’ve seen it.
Single Occupant: $75
Double Occupant: $85
