Located directly on Sakai suji (osaka's version of Tokyo's Akihabara, called denden town), and just a few minutes walk to the subway station, is this 1 room apartment.
4th floor apartment with a balcony. 23sq meters. The apartment is fully furnished with double bed, TV and a sofa bed which converts to a double bed. So the apartment could accomodate up to 4 guests.
There is a small fully equipped kitchen with everything you need to make some light meals. The bathroom is an ensuite type with shower, vanity and toilet. The balcony faces directly onto denden town, so the apartment is really in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Osaka!
There is a coin laundry located just a few minutes walk from the apartment, and has super fast dryers! (we supply washing powder).
Around the area-
Within minutes walk- ramen shop, Japanese restaurants, Indian restaurant, electronic stores, supermarkets.
Stations (subway a few minutes on foot, JR line 13 minutes on foot), Namba station (7 minutes on foot), Swiss hotel (7 minutes on foot), 24hr convenience stores etc.
2 minutes walk to Kuromon market, where local chefs get their produce, and tourists love to walk through! It's really interesting, even if you don't buy anything!
Basically it's right in the middle of all the action, so everything is there! The famous Dotonbori with the big electronic crab is only 7 minutes on foot away. Shinsaibashi with the bright lights is also just down the street, about 10 minutes on foot. The location is really great.
Spa world, the worlds largest indoor spa (also has a huge swimming pool and a gym), is located just down the street, about 13 minutes walk. 1,000yen gets a pass for a whole day.
Osaka tower/Tsutenkaku tower is also only a 10 minute walk.
It' really easy to get all around Osaka from the apartment, you can get to Nara within 30 minutes, Kobe and Kyoto within about 1 hour.
Minutes walk to all of Namba with it's great shopping, thousands of restaurants, maid cafes, Shinsaibashi......an awesome location from only 7,000yen per night for 2 people!

We were lucky to have Roman picked us up from the station. He was quick to give suggestions to places to visit and gave us useful advise. Had a good chat with him and he showed us a nice place for dinner. The place is conveniently located near a station and also a walking distance to Dotonbori and Kuromon market. The place might be small but is well equipped. We were happy with our stay and couldn't ask for a better location!
Host was very helpful, Roman took time to wait for me at the apartment and see to us. We very much appreciate this, as this was our first trip to Osaka.
The location of the apartment was very strategic, close to all the shopping and hip areas at Minami.
This was our first Airbnb experience and it absolutely met all of our expectations!
Communication from the host was first class and Roman was good enough to wait around for us to arrive despite us running a little late.
The apartment was fantastic - it was exactly as it was described and as it appeared in the listing photos. It was neat, tidy, very clean and homely. Having come from staying in a Ryokan in Toyko it was great to have some room to move!
The location was brilliant - close to everything we could want - bars, restaurants, convenience stores, coin laundry, markets and shopping.
The bathroom (whilst a little small, though this is to be expected in Japan) was fully functional and the bed was really comfortable. The supplied wi-fi was also a nice touch. The air-con kept us warm despite the fact it was freezing outside.
Pro Tip: Check out the ramen restaurant downstairs next to the front door - best ramen in Osaka in our opinion.
The next time we return to Osaka we will have no hesitation in using this property (or any other listed by Samantha / Roman) - we loved it and it made our stay in Osaka fantastic!
We had an awesome stay in Namba. Great location, spacious apartment (compared to hotels) and the communication with hosts was excellent. Very friendly and helpful, I will recommend this apartment to family and friends! Couldn't be happier with the stay.
The apartment was very nice: clean and fully furnished. The location was exceptional: all lively neighborhoods were at walking distance. The pocket WiFi device proved beyond useful when we were out visiting the Kansai region without knowing anything about it.
Our host Roman was also very welcoming, he answered fast and efficiently to our emails. We had issues of transportation because of the snow, but we were able to communicate well and we arrived at the apartment without issues even if it was very late. The host even prepared several bottles of water in the fridge for us, which was a great attention!
Roman is very friendly, he prepared everything for us, especially the pocket wifi:-) perfect location, we even didn't use any train or bus to the shopping area and it is just behind the seafood market, super nice~ will back again ~ thanks again for the arrangement!
The apartment was what we are looking for and it provide us the 'homely' feeling during our 7nights in osaka. The only down side would be the toilet is rather small but I guess that's ok as it's the same for all japanese toilet. Other than that the location was convenient and there is no lack for search of food in the neighbourhood. We are satisfied with the overall experience and would definitely be back for Samantha listing property should we be looking for accommodation in osaka.
My partner and I stayed here for four nights in late January 2013. The apartment is best described as reasonable budget accommodation in an excellent location.
The pictures accurately convey the space- a single room wth a bed, couch, fridge and a small kitchenette; the bathroom has been built in at the front of the room and is basic and small but useable nonetheless.
The kitchen is simple - there is a little space and it is really designed for cooking only simple food like noodles or pasta but nothing more elaborate than that. The area has excellent restaurants for people to chose from down at the Namba train station or on Dotombori (the latter is well worth a trip). If you are having lunch or shopping for basic food supplies then you cannot go past the Kuromon market which is a block away behind the apartment. Terrific fresh fish!
The aricon heated the apartment, which was well insulated, and the bed was comfortable enough for a budget room.
The washing and drying is done at a coin laundry rather than in the apartment. It is a good service, costing about 600 yen, and only takes about an hour to wash and dry.
As I said, the location is excellent, being in one of the more interesting parts of Osaka. You are well south of the main station, but well connected to it and Osaka broadly by its excellent trains.
As a host, Román was very responsive and polite, always happy to help when we had a question. We never met but he provided us with excellent advice and assistance whenever we asked for his help.
Over all, this is good budget option for people happy to travel in a no frills apartment in a vibrant location.
The room itself can accommodate 4, stay for 2 people would be nice but 4 people a little small. Kuromon market is just one to two minutes of walk from the apartment. Very near Namba but Dontobori and Shinsaibashi is slightly further away. Pocket wifi is provided which is very useful for those who cannot speak and read Japanese. The battery cannot last whole day so bring along your battery bank if you plan to travel far. Several water bottles were provided in the fridge thanks Roman. Please take note for those who book under host Samantha Andersan, there are two hosts under one account Samantha herself and Roman. This property is under Roman care. I had minor problem during checking in since the phone number I got from bnb website belong to Samantha.
Very neat and clean room!!
It's better than staying hotel for me!
I wanna use again if it's possible :)
