Maiko Villa

As mentioned in a previous post, our last destination in Japan was Kobe and Seaside Hotel Maiko Villa was where we spent the night. It is a beautiful resort overlooking the Akashi-Kaikyo Bridge and Akashi Strait and everything about our stay here screamed seaside vacation. View Post

If you’ve read ≪Welcome to Osaka≫, you’ll know that I stayed two nights in Osaka, both at different hotels.

For me, a hotel is simply a place to rest, a place to sleep when you’re travelling out and about exploring foreign cities so it doesn’t need to be extremely fancy. The main thing I look for is cleanliness and I have a thing for bright hotel rooms. That said, based on my own criteria, I recommend both of the hotels that I stayed at. However, I’ve come up with a more detailed breakdown of the pros and cons of each so you can evaluate them yourselves if you’re planning to visit Osaka anytime soon.
