Attractive price, convenient location but very small room
Reviewed 22 december, 2019
When we went to Osaka in late November, the city was crowded with tourists, especially around major attractions and Osaka station. It was thus very pleasant to stay slightly further away from the hustle and bustle on the quieter streets. Moreover, the hotel is still connected by a short and frequent shuttle ride (10-20 min depending on traffic) or a short walk (around 15 min) from JR Osaka station. Note that the shuttle runs only up to 8:40pm from the station so there is a high chance that you might need to walk from the station at night. Somebody mentioned in the comments that the room was small, I would add that it is likely due to not so thoughtful design. One has a feeling of everything being in the way of something else. For example, the toilet and shower are in two separate "booths" and the shower rug is placed right at the entrance of the room. The sink is however inside the room and not in another booth. There was also no service for the room during our stay (2 nights) and not even towels were replenished by default. Besides a tiny desk that serves as a counter-top for us, there were also no other drawers or basically any place to put your luggage, so even our luggage (2 backpacks plus a carry-on) was always in our way. This is really smaller than the usual small in normal Japanese business hotels. Nevertheless, the dining hall that serves breakfast, drinks and lunch offers reasonably good food at good prices (breakfast at 400 yen, drinks at 300 yen, lunch at 800 yen). It is a good alternative if you decide to avoid the crowd that day. Another good point is that the room and buildings (reception, dining and rooms located in 2 separate buildings) are all new, modern and sparkling clean. There is a time-sharing (to separate genders) public bath at the ground floor of the hotel building so in case you don't like the smallness of the shower, there is still another choice. Unfortunately, the time constraint has made it difficult for us to use it this time.
Comfortable but a little to small

The free hotel shuttle comfortably takes you there from and to Osaka station. Saves you the walk. Front desk, lobby and restaurant are located across the street from the room building. Located in a quiet neighbourhood but in walking distance of the Umeda skybuilding. Great for dinner and an after dinner skyline view. Rooms are comfortable but really really small. When you think of a small Japan hotel room, think little smaller and that's the room here. Same for the shower. Apart from that, comfortable beds and pillows as well as towels. Breakfast not great. That is choice of western entries very limited. Just a roll, jam, coffee/tea and a salad. You're also offered a japanese style breakfast. Looking really good but for non-Japanese may be not your choice in the morning. I would prefer buying a croissant and rolls at Osaka station or elsewhere downtown.
Un buon albergo

L’albergo S Training Center Hotel è tutt’altro che male e con un buon rapporto prezzo qualità. Non lontano dalla stazione ma non facile a localizzarsi. Se si scarica sull’app. di Booking com può essere utile mostrare al tassista l’indirizzo in lingua giapponese. La camera è spaziosa confortevole e ben arredata con un’ottima linea wifi. Molto gentile il personale della reception. Un altro elemento a suo favore può essere la vicinanza di 200 metri dall’hotel Westin da cui parte il bus limousine navetta per l’aeroporto di Kansai e che è situato in un’ala di una delle maggiori attrazioni di Osaka: l’Umeda Sky Building che è assolutamente da visitare.
