There are a lot of accommodation choices in Osaka that range from high end domestic and international hotel chains to cheap capsule hotels and everything in between. Below is a brief introduction to the main hotel districts around Osaka, their advantages as a base for tourists and some recommended hotels:

Osaka Station

A regional transportation hub with direct connections across Osaka and to neighboring Kyoto, Kobe and Nara, the area around JR Osaka Station (Umeda) is one of the most convenient places to stay in Osaka. The district offers plenty of shopping and dining options but is considered less exciting than the lively Namba district further south. Recent redevelopment of the station and surroundings have increased the district's attractiveness.

Shin-Osaka Station

The area around Shin-Osaka Station is convenient for those using the shinkansen for side trips to Kyoto, Hiroshima and elsewhere.
