Pros:I have no complaints about the hotel itself. To me its biggest selling point is its location. Finding the hotel for the first time can be a bit iffy but once I found it and got a good idea of the layout of the city I realized how easy it was to travel anywhere from this slightly secluded and quiet (aside from the often-running above-ground train) location. Plus the hotel provided a handy booklet that described the area, the hotel's amenities, and how to get to Kansai Airport. The Claiton is a polite and professional hotel that I would visit again.
Cons:The walls are thin. This wouldn't have been a problem if the other people in the hotel were considerate but I was surrounded by high school boys on a sports trip who left their door stops out to keep their doors open for their friends and slammed said doors upon said stops repeatedly at all hours of the night and early morning until, I think, eight, when they left to have fun with their sports. I was there for five nights and for five nights this behavior continued. So to sum up, if you're more proactive than me and don't mind yelling at strange youngsters then the thin walls won't be a problem. If you're unlucky and a misanthrope, like me, then you'll be kept up at night.
