Check In

I had problems locating the car park at the hotel, I know there was definitely a car park as we have been before but as the roads are narrow and busy in osaka, it was a problem.  The car park isn’t located on the main road of the hotel but at the back where the residential was.  There was no sign and it was all a one way road.  So after spending a good 20 minutes driving around, I had to get off and ask at the receptionist who spoke little English. She told me it was at the back but I told her i could not find it. I asked her to come out to help but she refused till I negotiated with her. In the end she came out with me unwillingly and found the car park which just looked like any parking at someone’s house.  Service was really iffy.

This is my 3rd visit to Best Western Hotel Fino Osaka and it was nothing how I remembered.  It was first opened in 2010, however the hotel now is slightly outdated and smaller than I remembered.  You can easily walk to the downtown of Osaka, Namba and Dotonburi,  There are many eateries around here, altho you will need to walk atleast 15 minutes to Namba and major shopping complexes.  I like it here because i can walk to the most businest place without taking any transportation.

The room was a lot smaller than I thought, with the bed being tiny and right next to the desk.  The bathroom was even more compact than I remembered.  The room was clean and tidy when I arrived, no weird smell or anything. It was perfect for one night stay.
