I stayed here once and had a very good experience here. When I checked out, I needed to take the Kintetsu line to Nagoya and hadn't done that in so many years that I asked for directions. Instead of just telling me how to get to the Kintetsu Namba station or giving me a map, they had a bellhop actually take me all the way to the station while he carried my bag for me. Unbelievable!! I was very happy and as a travel agent (at the time) it really helped me to sell the hotel to clients (and I was traveling on vacation, not on business and they had no idea I was in the travel industry so what they did for me was not related to that at all.)
