Head to Osaka with ease knowing that you've got a place to lay your head. With at least 289 properties available, booking a cosy bed for your cheap holiday or luxury getaway won't be a problem!
If a generously stocked minibar and a swanky bathtub appeals to you, grab a bottle of wine and soak yourself in luxury at The Ritz-Carlton, Osaka (2-5-25 Umeda) or the InterContinental Osaka (3-60, Ofuka-cho Kita-ku). After something a bit cheaper? The Guest House Social House (2-10-22 Sanno) and the Khaosan World Namba (1-2-13, Motomachi, Naniwa-ku) are a couple of options that won't cost you a fortune.
If you're here on a short layover and only have time to visit Osaka's star attractions, book a room at the ANA Crowne Plaza Osaka or the Mitsui Garden Hotel Osaka Premier. Both are located conveniently close to the Osaka Science Museum.

Pro: Shuttle bus, very roomie. Con: it seems the hotel is a bit old in general; one toilet was missing a ceiling cover but got it fixed after I spoke to the staff.
Near main attractions like Dotonbori and Namba Shopping district.
The property is in Universal City. Transport (train) is just beside it. Excellent location. Rooms are a bit old but in good condition.
Nice property and really convenient to subway. Yeah not downside was the internet was a little spotty on my phone but worked fine with my laptop.
Absolutely perfect. Great location, not far at all from the city's best restaurants and tourist areas. 5-7 min walk to a nearby train station (Nippombashi), and the hotel is exceedingly clean. Room service was also excellent and reliable, and the staff was always courteous and nice. One of the people ...
The staff was extremely helpful and professional, and the room was very clean and comfortable. The best location to catch a flight from KIX.
Modern and comfortable, in a great location near one of the best shopping areas in the world.
