Clean and efficient. Japanese or Western style rooms available. Elevator will take you and luggage to your room. Stayed in a single Japanese style room. Close to HEP 5 and Umeda and Osaka Stations. Many restaurants and shopping malls along the way. However, area is a bit Kinky. There's a porn DVD rental shop nearby and streets outside hotel. May not be safe after midnight for single ladies since there are a few local bars around. Room has bathroom & toilet, which is very small. Toothbrush, toothpaste, razor, shower & shampoo are complimentary in bathroom. Yukata, towels, hot water thermos, tea in room. Comfortable futon and fluffy blankets, but pillow was small and a bit hard. Wall mirror was in an odd place so do your makeup in the bathroom. Peaceful night sleep, but can be quite noisy around 3am - 4am. I suspected stragglers from the clubs stayed for the night. I'd recommend Hotel Kinki to budget travellers who prefer a hotel than a dorm for privacy. Central location and close to shopping malls.
Unique Quality: Private bathroom and toilet. Allows you to leave your luggage prior to check in and after you check out. Friendly staff. There is midnight curfew, but I can't remember which door they will lock (the front or the back?) I'm satisfied with Hotel Kinki as I only stayed for 1 uneventful night. Larger rooms available for twin or triple share. Vending machine, card operated laundry and 1 PC available in lobby.
Directions: Exit Osaka station towards Hep 5. Keep walking until you reach traffic lights under Expressway bridge on Miyakojima-dori. The hotel's neon sign is easy to see. Visit hotel's website for direction map.
I stayed for 3 nights in 2004 summer. The location is great. It is near the JR Osaka Station which is a busy shopping centre. It is difficult to find it at the beginning. You have to follow the directions on its website. After the first time, you will be please with its location. One day I was very tired and had headache. I walked to the hotel and took a nap in the afternoon. Nice personel.
Directions: It is easy to find and get to, it takes about 10 minutes from JR Osaka Station to walk. And about 5 minutes from Hankyu Railway Umeda Station to walk.

i've tried looking for reviews of this place but to no avail.mmm...not listed on hostelworld.com or other sites. came across its own website just by googling.
has anyone stayed here or know anything about this place? is the location ok?
am alone for the first time in another country and hope to begin a lifetime of adventure without any mishaps! :)
thanks in advance for any info. :)
I am actually in Hotel Kinki on their internet connection. So,.... you ask what kind of place it is. Great rooms, well there is everything you could need, small room, but nothing bad to say. And for the staff, a little hard to understand ;), but there was some employees who could talk english very well. For the location, it is very great, about 7 minutes walk from Osaka Station. I wont stay more than a night there beacause it is too expensive for me. It is about 5500 Yens per night.
If you have more specific questions, go ahead.
*ho! and I couldnt tell you how to get there, but it is in one of there hi-lighted street with Pachinko everywhere ;)
