Hotel Hillary's Shinsaibashi, Osaka, Japan.

I remembered taking the longest time to find a legit hotel in Osaka, that will not dent our bank account too much. I wanted a private onsen in our room, but that would mean that we will need to spend more time in the room/resort. 

No thanks for this round. We want to explore Osaka as much as we can, with the limited time we got. 

After don't-know-how-many-hours, I finally decided on Hotel Hillary's Shinsaibashi because of its location and the price also not too bad. 

Shinsaibashi is Osaka's main shopping district. You know the famous Dotonbori River? It's a walking distance from Shinsaibashi, hence the location that we picked. 

Total price we paid for 3 nights was RM1356.29 (including taxes and all) - so per night is about RM452. 

What is inclusive: 

  • Free flow of good coffee and good tea throughout the day and night
  • Free flow of various flavored artisan bread at tea time onwards (there is an oven for you to warm the buns too) 
  • Onsen on the top floor 
  • Ice creams and Yakult-like drinks after your onsen session (it changes everyday)
The room is not big, and even for the 2 of us, I felt like I needed a bigger space. The toilet is very small but comes with a bathtub, so it's a win. 

I would recommend this hotel (hands down) to couples, but not for family unfortunately. 

We really love the walking distance to everything. 

Have a room tour with our Youtube video below :)

Till next staycation, bye now.
