      • Family with children

        Near to the shopping strip.

        1. Room is too small for 2 adults & 2 children. I had in fact made a booking for 4 adults. 2. The internet connection at the lobby is very poor. Many a times, the is no connections at all. 3. The frying oil smell from the kitchen drift the the lobby, making almost unbearable to stay at the lobby for too long.

        The location is really closed to Shinsaibashi and Dotomburi, the shopping and dining area. Easy access to subway. The staff is friendly and very helpful.

        We have booked for 2 rooms, one for 3 persons and one for 2 persons. The room size for 3 people is exactly the same size as 2 persons. We dont even have space for opening our luggage.

        My group didn't make it in until a little after 11pm, since we were coming in from Kyoto. Luckily the front desk is manned 24 hours a day and the overnight receptionist was very nice. We decided to stay at Yamatoya Honten because the places we had looked at in Kyoto were all booked up due to cherry blossom season. We had a quadruple room without breakfast and dinner, and the room was comfy with a tv. We had our own toilet and shower, but we decided to use the shared bath instead. The shared bath was simple, but the amenities were great and the hot bath was great to relax in after a long day. I was glad to have internet and a free computer to use in the lobby.

        While the room looked clean, it still felt dirty because there was a little smoke left over from past visitors. It wasn't super strong, but if you're sensitive to smoke then I wouldn't recommend Yamatoya Honten, but otherwise it was a reasonable price and a really nice shared bath.

        I liked the proximity to the center of Osaka and the modern approach of the Ryokan

        It was too expansive and the value for money is poor. We were 3 in a little rooms with barely enough space to do anything when the futons were placed. It felt a bit like a rip off.

        I like the Ryokan experience.

        The room can be cleaner.

        The place was very accessible near the food street and shopping area. Staff was friendly and helpful.

        The rooms were rather tiny and they kept shifting our luggages when they did room service.
