Stayed at Swissotel Nankai in December 2011 and were very pleased with our choice.
The rooms were very comfortable and well maintained, with a great view over downtown Osaka.
The hotel is directly above Namba station (not a JR line for those with JR passes - the JR line is a few blocks away under the Hotel Monterey Grasmere, but the Swissotel location beats this for ease of access to everything else).
Directly under the hotel you will find:
An information desk with very helpful English speaking employees, with English maps.
A bank, where you can exchange foreign monies easily.
The Takashimaya department store, which has a great variety of restaurants upstairs and a huge food hall in the basement.
The hotel is also a gateway to the endless shopping malls of Dotombori and Shinsaibashi and the best part is that the Swissotel is a landmark that you can easily spot and find your way back to when out exploring the streets of Osaka.
Would definitely recommend this hotel without hesitation to anyone seeking a comfortable, reasonably priced, upmarket, well located hotel for seeing the sights of Osaka.
