Where to stay in Osaka, Japan? (Day 1)


I flew PAL going to Japan and unfortunately my flight was delayed thus I wasn’t able to do anything on my first night. I was too tired.

The entrance
The lobby
Classy isn’t it?

I stayed in Hyatt Regency Hotel which is right beside Nakafuto station. I do not recommend this hotel if you are on a budget because it’s very pricey. I suggest you try AirBnB. In addition, it’s not walking distance to the shopping district (Namba, Dotonburi, Shinshabashi, Umeda). But getting around Japan is not a hassle because their train system is efficient and easy to understand and the people are very friendly. As long as you are near a train station then you do not have to worry about anything.


Super pretty hallway


Why stay in Hyatt:

  1. There’s wide variety of food in their breakfast buffet!

    The best cherry tomatoes I have ever eaten in my life
I hoarded smoked salmon and yogurt!
  1. It’s beside Nakafuto station (See P11)Japan Railway System
  2. The rooms are big

    Definitely bigger than other hotels in Japan
  3. The bathroom is spacious too

    Bidet has a heater and is so high tech!
  4. You can just keep asking for bottles of water and they also gave us fresh fruits DSCF0615
  5. They have a complimentary shuttle service to Universal Studios Japan, Umeda, Kansai Airport, etc.
  6. You can purchase tickets for Universal Studios Japan in their concierge
  7. Concierge can speak English and is very friendly. You can ask him/her for directions and etc.

The girl I talked to provided me with an Osaka subway map.  She even told me the best route from point A to point B. I was also able to get maps of Kyoto and Nara.

I really had a great experience here. I highly recommend this hotel if you are not on a budget and would like to experience first class service. I’d rate this hotel a 4.5/5 stars!
