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.

... say little old ladies bent over like a hairpin were faster up the steps than I was, and it was a darned sight easier coming down. There’s a great view over the park to the city and it wasn’t too crowded. I noticed an old wall painting but can’t find anything to explain the story shown – it looks for all the world like ‘Burglar Bill’ in the kids’ story book with his bag of swag over his shoulder, and a hole ...
