TravelPod Member ReviewsYamatoya Honten Osaka
This was my second stay at Yamatoya Honten and I love it. They have 24 hour lobby with no curfew which is great if you're planning on partying around Dotonburi and Namba. The staff are courteous and helpful and many speak English. There's internet in the lobby and a huge shared bath. Easy to find on the edge of Dotonburi and 5 mins walk from either Namba or Nipponbashi stations. A++ for the price around $75 a night per person with cheaper rates for longer stays.
