    The location was perfect. Room was small, which were aware of when choosing this hotel, but adequate for our needs.

    Easy to access from the train station, the rooms were beautiful and comfortable. The bathroom could have been cleaner, but it was absolutely perfect for a single person to stay. I will definitely be staying here again.

    Great location, helpful & friendly staff, and amenities. Can't beat a peekaboo view of Osaka castle! Nearby a good subway intersection for visiting Kyoto, Nara, the Osaka waterfront and Dotonburi and short walking distance to the historic castle. The breakfast buffet has an excellent croissant too. One of the top hotels in my Japan trip. I'd stay here again next time in Osaka. Only minor quibble- the room itself was non-smoking but the hallway smelled strongly of smoke; not sure that rule is being obeyed by other guests. Anyone who has issues with smoking residue might expect this.

    Perfect location for exploring Osaka - near good transportation links and within walking distance of the Osaka Castle. The room was comfortable and just right for my visit.

    There are dozens, if not hundreds, of budget/economy hotels in Osaka which offer near identical accommodation to The Lutheran Hotel. They all have a minimum of public spaces, tiny restaurants/coffee shops and very small bedrooms. They are also generally very affordable and perfect for independent travellers who don’t want to sit in their hotel all day. The Lutheran has slightly larger rooms than most, a very good breakfast buffet and wonderful staff. It is also located in a very quiet area ( most others are clustered around rail stations and shopping/nightlife). Best of all, it’s within metres of the spectacular Osaka Castle and its parks. It’s also less than 100 metres from entrance to a subway station connecting you to the rest of the city within minutes.
