What a SQUEEZE !!!
Front office staff good, helpful. Housekeeping sucks!!! Although we opted for APA ECO ACTION where we dont change our bed linen. We tght they would at least make the bed. This was not done. Not sure if they vacuum the floor? A used cup was left unwashed. I have stayed in hotel in other places that dont cost so much and we do our part for GAIA where we dont change bed linens. At least the house keeping was good, bed was made up, cups washed, vacuum done. So in this regard, APA Higobashi Ekimae FAILED BIGTIME. Room was a tight squeeze!!! Could hardly manouvre. And u wonder why they bother to give a 50" TV.

Just for simple stay
If you just require a place to sleep and shower.. well should be OK and location is just at the exit 3 of Higobashi station. But be prepare to climb a flight of stairs if you are carrying huge luggage. Pretty small room - for single person should be OK

Convenient location
Hotel is located in a convenient location, 10 mins to Osaka station. However, I was given a room near the lift lobby, therefore it was quite noisy whenever there are guests who walked past. Room is a typical Japanese room, very small.
