Rooms & Facilities

”Guest House U-en” was built as a sake brewery in 1910, but it began to be used as a Japanese-style restaurant (ryotei) from the 1955s. The over 110-year-old traditional wooden townhouse was reborn as a guest house. It's rare that it has still remained the atmosphere it was built in Osaka city.

Meeting people is the best part of traveling, but sometimes people need the place where you can truly relax, and we offer such a place.

We offer private rooms where can accommodate 1- 4 people and shared rooms.
We have shared restrooms and shower rooms.

In addition our building is very old, and it isn't soundproof at all, so you can hear everything. Please kindly understand this matter.

You can check the accommodation fee and the vacancy.

Credit cards are required for advance payments. 
If you want to pay at the hostel, please contact us by email.
