Best Western Hotel Fino Osaka Shinsaibashi

Best Western Hotel Fino Osaka Shinsaibashi

We were pleasantly surprised at how #relaxing and comfortable the Osaka hotel, in #Japan was. It ticked all the boxes, and mainly the location was brilliant for us to explore the city and #culture. I will defiantly be staying here again.


Contrary to popular belief, good hotel rooms in Japan don’t have to be expensive. Take this Best Western for example.

Like the majority of business hotels, the rooms here are small, but perfect for couples or single travelers. We stayed in one of their Moderate Double rooms that measures a modest 15 square meters. Without question, it’s one of the smallest hotel rooms that we’ve ever stayed in, but it also happened to be one of the most comfortable and with all the amenities, providing everything from robes, to slippers, to stationery, to toiletries, to a hair dryer, even a shoe horn.

The bed is so comfortable that it’s coma-inducing, while the toilet and shower, as you’ll see from the pictures below, are the stuff of legend. Located in the heart of Shinsaibashi just a few minutes walk from all the shops and restaurants, the hotel is centrally located as well with a 7-Eleven directly across the street and a subway stop just a few meters away.

You’d think that a hotel room like that would be expensive, but it isn’t. Staying here on two separate legs, we paid a modest ¥5,600 for the first weeknight, and ¥7,520 a night over the weekend.

What Ren wants as a 10th year wedding anniversary present. With features like a seat warmer, front and back washing, and spray pressure control at your fingertips, can you really blame her?! Some public toilets even sprayed air freshener and made courtesy flushing sounds. God, I love Japan.

If you thought the toilet was awesome, check out the mirror. Behind the spot where your face is estimated to be are heaters to keep that area from fogging up when you take a shower. How effing cool is that?! The Japanese really do think of everything!

We enjoyed our stay here so much that we wouldn’t even think of staying elsewhere on any return trip to Osaka. If you’re planning on staying around the Shinsaibashi / Dotonbori areas, then this Best Western should merit serious consideration. For all the reasons outlined above, it’s perfect. 

How to get There:

Take the Sakaisuji subway line and get off at Nagahoribashi station. The hotel is about a 1-minute walk from exit 5A.
