We stayed in a semi-double room at the comfort hotel Shinsaibashi in November 2008 and it was by far our favourite hotel of the trip. You could not get a better location for the hotel- just 2 minutes walk to Shinsaibashi, one endless strip of shopping, entertainment and dining. The room was clean with capsule bathroom and spacious enough for 2 people to stay comfortably, including a desk and chair along one wall, LCD tv and small bar fridge. Although small, the capsule bathroom was clean and had a modern japanese toilet. The whole hotel is impeccably clean and room service came every day. Hotel staff spoke some english and were friendly, helpful and polite. On our last day they even held our luggage after check-out. Our only complaint was that the hotel was centrally heated for winter and the air-conditioning could not be turned onto cooler air during one unusually warm night, so we had to open the window and had a few mosquitoes fly in :(
Breakfast at the comfort hotel was varied with an assortment of japanese and western foods. These included onigiri (cold japanese rice balls), fruit salad packs, yoghurt, assorted pastries and croisssants, orange juice, tea and coffee.
Some reviewers expressed difficulty in finding the hotel although we didn't experience any trouble. From JR umeda station, catch the midosuji (red) "M" subway line from M16 (the subway line interconnects with the main JR station) to M19. From the Shinsaibashi subway station (red M line), take the exit up a ramp with Daimaru department store on your right (i think it was exit 6), turn right and walk down the main shopping strip for 2 blocks. At the traffic lights, take a left-hand turn and continue walking straight for 3 blocks (past 3 intersecting streets). You will pass a convenience store on your right as you walk down. If you pass a convenience store on your left you have walked a little too far. Comfort hotel is on the corner with the third intersecting street with a small sign on the curb. If you get lost, the address is "1-15 Higashishinsaibashi, Chuo-ku". Write this down and point to the address and ask "sumimasen- kono jyusho wa doko des ka?"(excuse me, where is this address?) Or say, "sumimasen, comfort hoteru shinsaibashi wa doko des ka?" (where is the comfort hotel shinsaibashi?). Leaving Osaka, we chose to just walk the kilometre or so with our suitcases to the JR station so that we didn't have to wheel our luggage up and down stairs. As the shopping strip is flat this posed no problems and was easier as we then knew our way around shinsaibashi.
