My sister's family and my family (total of 8) stayed at Hotel 88 Shinsaibashi from 12/28/19 to 1/1/20. We LOVE the hotel! Hotel has a slick interior design and with free message chair which I could really used after long walks during the day. The rooms are clean and spacious. The location is very convenient - close to the train/subway and the Dotonbori shopping/restaurant area yet it's in a quiet corner of the street. We all enjoyed the Drink Bar at lobby area which opens at 6am. It offers cold/hot drinks and even soups. The hotel provides plates and utensils at the Drink Bar which is very thoughtful. The staffs are all friendly and helpful especially the owner Vicky. On the day of check out which was New Year's Day, we were in need of a van to carry our luggage and we did not planned ahead. Vicky helped us to contact the taxi but found they were fully booked, he then offered to give us a ride to the bus terminal to the airport. The staff not only gave us a ride to the bus terminal, but guided us all the way to the ticket counter and to the bus stop. Thank you so much, Hotel 88 Shinsaibashi! We highly recommend this hotel and will be happy to stay here next time we go to Osaka!
