Wow! If you arrive from the a different city in japan be prepared for a shock! Its a dump... the pavement smells of urine, theres homeless people on every corner and the people look at you as if they want to eat you! It is definately not a nice location. However the hotel and its staff are fine, a little dated and worn out but it was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. The metro station is just outside so easy access to the nicer more lively parts of osaka. If your on a budget theres a good 100yen shop to keep you going!lol
