For Osaka we booked our hotel super late (2 days before arrival). We were not sure how much time we wanted to spend, or if Osaka was even a destination we would pass through. However, the food was to alluring and it was on our way to our final destination, Kyoto,
We stayed 2 nights, and that we did not regret.
We stayed at the nice hotel Androoms, complete renovated this year, and it was in a nice quiet area, but still super close to everything. It was raining “cats & dogs”, so we did use taxis a lot, simply due to the short length of our stay that we wanted to maximise. However, taxi is cheap in Japan, so going to Dotonbori (the street food area) was just 8 euros…so was the trip going to Osaka Castle. Well worth it in terms of saving time and get to do a lot in the just 2 days we spend here.
The hotel had large rooms, was very family friendly and super Scandi in style.
