We went to the latest hotel in the super popular Namba area of Osaka!
Namba, Osaka, has all of the great charms of Osaka city like the local flavors of takoyaki and okonomiyaki, bustling activity and lively people.
It also has great access to the vibrant Kuromon Ichiba market!
This is a really popular area for sightseeing, so it can be one of the most difficult places in the country to get hotel reservations. Now that a new hotel has made an appearance in the heart of Namba, Osaka, it’s getting all the latest buzz. So, what kind of hotel are we talking about exactly? Well, we went to check it out!
First of all, it’s as beautiful as expected. Not only is the hotel new, but the sophisticated interior is remarkable.
Like a traditional Japanese ryokan in the middle of a giant metropolis! The rooftop, outdoor bath is too good to be true!
Candeo Hotel Osaka Namba is no ordinary hotel! But, why?
That’s because there’s a giant outdoor bath located on the rooftop. Looking out on the vast skyline while soaking in this bath in the middle of the city will make you feel like you’re floating in the sky. This experience will be a memory of your trip to Japan that you definitely won’t forget!
Certainly there are a lot of people out there who want to experience soaking in a large public bath, or outdoor bath at least once during their trip in Japan. To think that this could happen in your own hotel is quite a surprise. There is also a sauna and a lounge to enjoy the dazzling nightscape. Surely this will wash away the stress of your travels.
Rooms with Japanese design
Not only the outdoor bath but the rooms also reflect the essence of Japanese culture. For example, just take a look at the living space in the executive twin room.
The living space provides a place for the family to get together in the afternoon and at night, you can spread out a blanket to make a third bed.
It’s just like a Japanese home where the tatami covered space is used as a living room by day and a sleeping space by night once the futon are pulled out. So go ahead and enjoy this slight taste of Japanese culture. You won’t have to worry about saying, “The extra bed took up so much space I couldn’t open my suitcase!”
Choose whatever you like from the healthy morning buffet with over 60 items
The Japanese and Western-style healthy morning buffet is comprised of over 60 different items including seasonal vegetables shipped directly from the farms. There are many Japanese-style dishes to enjoy like yakitori (chicken skewers), fresh handmade tofu as well as “niku-jaga” (meat and potatoes), which are at the heart of mom’s home cooking in Japan. You can also find a wide variety of Western cuisine including crispy croissants, fresh fruit, and three different kinds of soup that change depending on the day which will keep everyone satisfied from kids to adults.
The buffet costs 1,800 yen for adults, 1,000 yen for kids aged 6 to 11, and is free of charge for those under 5, which is great for those visiting with their families.
The restaurant has its own terrace so you can enjoy the refreshing morning air as you relax!
