Excellent staff.
Hotel is close to a Metro station and only 1 stop away from Namba. Staff's very helpful and those we dealt with spoke English very well. We were allowed to check in half an hour early when we arrived, and a taxi was booked for us when we enquired about getting one to take us and our luggage to the station in Namba, and the taxi was waiting for us when we came down to check out. Breakfasts were provided and were adequate, though the Japanese breakfast was better than the western-style one.

The Frown Hotel Namba
We arrived there around 2 had to wait till exactly 3 to check-in. The bed was extremely small for two people so we were very uncomfortable the whole time. Everything seemed like it hadn't been cleaned properly and felt dingy. The bathroom was tiny and had a terrible smell the whole time we were there. The breakfast was bare bones and bad. The location wasn't even worth while since we had to take the subway to get to dotonburi everyday since there is nothing around the hotel. The costs add up every time so you're spending more money just to get around and find a decent breakfast. I would highly recommend staying somewhere else since the price is not worth cutting corners for comfort and cleanliness.

Toilet very small, compared with standard Japanese room. Quality of breakfast slightly below average, anyway undertandably the room rate is cheap.

I only booked this hotel because the other hotels within a reasonable budget had booked out due to the busy cherry blossom season. The room, bed and bathroom were tiny, even for Japan. Could barely turn around in the bathroom. My partner hit his head on the towel rack when getting off the toilet and I nearly knocked the sink off the wall while attempting to get in the shower (we're not big people ourselves). Although I think there are rooms that are bigger than ours, but we didn't have an option as it was almost fully booked. Breakfast included various Japanese food such as fish, rice, soup and tjen eggs and other meat, which was cold as it wasn't kept in a bain marie. Showers in shared bath are traditional Japanese and were lovely. Natural hot spa was also lovely. Women could use this from 1700-2100 and men from 2115 until 0100. Bathrooms had toothbrushes, shavers, a comb, cotton tips and a hair dryer, which was convenient. Very close to train stations, but JR stations were either a 15 minute walk in either direction. Approximately 20 minute walk to Dotonbori. Given that this hotel was called Smile Hotel Namba, it would've been nice to have actually been located IN Namba. I knew this when booking as I'd done my research, but for those who book without looking too much into it, be aware that it's not right in the middle of Namba and it will take you at least 15-20 minutes to walk to areas with good food, shopping and nightlife, such as Namba and Dotonbori.
