Location and price:
The hotel took us a few minutes to find but, it is only a few blocks from Osaka Umeda Station. For the price and location it was a good choice.
Restaurants and food:
Nearby are many places to eat and the hotel itself offers a good morning buffet style brunch.
The room and the view:
The room was nice enough although the view wasn't so special but there the blame rests more with the city of Osaka rather than just the hotel.
The staff were very friendly.
We weren't able to use the laundry facilities as we would have liked to because a baseball team was staying at the hotel and using them all up on a daily and nightly basis. The hotel doesn't have enough washing machines and driers to accommodate so many people (only 2 of each if I remember right).

An excellent place to stay, it was comfortable, and felt good... of course, after 21 hours of running around between planes, taxis & subways, ANYplace would feel good if you could put your bags down & rest...
It's about 2 blocks from the main subway/bus station, so it's well-located.
Unique Quality: Oddly, the main entrance is "at the back" of the building, and I found it difficult to locate, since the main street seemed the more obvious choice to look...
Directions: Just a few minutes walk from JR Osaka Station, downtown.
