[October 2023] The prices of 23 cheap hotels in Osaka Nishinari recommended by YouTubers.

Nishinari hotel October 2023

Nishinari is famous for being a skid row in Osaka. However, Nishinari has recently become popular among foreign tourists as an area where many hotels with low accommodation rates are gathered. In Nishinari, I’ll introduce cheap hotels and locations recommended by YouTubers, and their current prices as of early October 2023.




Introduction

Nishinari

Nishinari is an area with many low-cost accommodations. Nearby tourist attractions include Osaka Shinsekai and Dobutsuen-mae Shopping Street.

(YouTube video’s link)

In particular, it is known for the large number of karaoke bars staffed by Chinese women, and there are hundreds of karaoke bars in the Dobutsuen-mae shopping street.

Previous price survey and YouTube video

It is now early October 2023, and this is the first rate survey in a post-covid world. In October 2023, I plan to upload a YouTube video of the Nishinari Hotel location and its surroundings.

[Video scheduled to be uploaded]

The shooting route will be as shown below.

Nishinari Hotel

This article introduces a budget hotel in Nishinari (hereinafter referred to as Nishinari Hotel). It’s a little different from a typical business hotel. The difference is clearly explained in the video below, so please watch it first.

These are the business hotels and locations in Osaka city where I actually stayed in August 2021 during the coronavirus pandemic (including Nishinari Hotel).

Most recommended business hotel in Nishinari

If you have the budget, I recommend staying at NAMBA EBISU HOTEL.

NAMBA EBISU HOTEL

Unlike other Nishinari hotels, the comfort is exceptional. However, the accommodation fee is more than double that of a typical Nishinari hotel. For details, please see the article General business hotel list mentioned above.

Standards/conditions

The Nishinari Hotel standards and conditions introduced in this article are basically set as follows.

  • Recommended by YouTuber
  • Accommodation fees are generally up to 3,000 yen on weekdays.
  • Private room
  • Air conditioner and refrigerator available
  • There are shared toilet, shower and kitchen.

Although it is called a budget hotel, it is a facility where tourists can stay normally. This article excludes dirty and dilapidated living quarters where the majority of guests are on welfare.

hotel fee

Accommodation rates are based on the results of a search on Agoda using the following conditions.

  • Search date
    Sunday, October 1, 2023
    (Search on the first Sunday of the month)
  • Scheduled stay date
    Thursday, October 5, 2023 One night
    Saturday, October 7, 2023 One night

    (First Thursday and Saturday of the month)

    I did this because most hotels have a big difference in rates between weekdays and holidays, and in Osaka, prices tend to get cheaper the closer you go. If the scheduled stay date is fully booked, I’ll search for the same day of the week next week instead.

    Exchange rate

    ドル円 202310

    The exchange rate (according to Google Finance) on October 3, 2023, when I checked exchange rate, was 149.76 yen to 1 USD. WISE exchange rate is also the same at 149.78(JPY/USD). Agoda’s hotel fee (JPY) are expressed in USD using the above exchange rate of 149.76.

    Please note that there are actually fees charged when sending money overseas with WISE, but these are not taken into consideration. For example, the THB exchange value when remitting 100 USD will be as follows.

    • 100USD – 0.13USD(other fee) -2.43USD(WISE fee) = 14595JPY

    Cheap hotel rates in Osaka Nishinari

    The cost per night at the budget hotels featured in this article is as follows.

    • Weekday: ¥1,900 〜 ¥2,800 ($12.69 〜 $18.70)
    • Holiday: ¥2,800 〜 ¥6,400 ($18.70 〜 $42.74)

    Generally speaking, accommodation rates at hotels are up to 2,800 yen on weekdays, but some hotels are outside this range as there were hotels whose holiday rates were more than double that on weekdays.

      This is a list of hotels in Nishinari that I checked prices for this time.

      ホテル サンプラザ (Hotel Sunplaza)

      ホテル サンプラザ (Hotel Sunplaza)

      Located right next to JR Shin-Imamiya Station and Nankai Electric Railway Shin-Imamiya Station. It is very convenient as there is a cheap supermarket called Tamade within 50 meters from the station. However, the downside is that you can always hear the sound of trains running and station announcements. There is an open-air bath with a view on the rooftop.

      There are Japanese and Western rooms, and the rooms are about 3 tatami mats in size. The room is clean, but it has a unique smell, so it may be a little harsh for people who don’t like it. Looking at Agoda’s latest (summer 2023) reviews, there are many opinions like the above.

It’s very close to ホテル サンプラザ (Hotel Sunplaza), but it’s further away from the station platform, so the noise from trains and station announcements is better. You can use the large public bath at ホテル ジパング (Hotel Zipangu), which is an affiliated store next door.

      Capsule rooms are the cheapest, but it is best not to share a room at Nishinari Hotel as there are various risks. Economy single rooms are the cheapest and come with a work desk, but the room rate is higher than other Nishinari hotels, and the reviews on Agoda are bad, so it’s a bit questionable. There is also a renovated economy single room, and the room is as clean and well-equipped as a business hotel, so it seems worth it.

      I’m concerned that there are many bad reviews on Agoda. The building is old and the accommodation rates are not cheap compared to other Nishinari hotels, so there is no reason to choose this hotel.

      Sum up

      It’s difficult to judge Nishinari Hotel just by looking at photos and reviews on Agoda, but it’s hard to say without actually staying there. Based on my experience, I personally recommend the following two Nishinari hotels.

      However, depending on the day, the accommodation fee may be more expensive, so in that case, I think it would be better to stay at another Nishinari hotel. I don’t think there are any particularly good Nishinari hotels so far, so it’s best to choose on a case-by-case basis.
