I booked this hotel on the basis that it was very affordable and had a lot of favorable reviews (around $56 USD at the time of booking) with a close vicinity to Shin-Osaka Station. I had to catch a train out of Shin-Osaka the following...More
Score for this hotel should really be more than 3, but can't bring myself to giving it 4.
The good first... Excellent value for money, friendly and helpful staff, hotel and room spotlessly clean, really comfy pillows and nice easy direct train from KIX airport,...More

When I've booked on one of the hotel booking sites there is an option for breakfast. I've always opted for breakfast as it IS substantial with lots of choice. The only drawback is it closes at 9.30am, so if you like to sleep in, you probably wouldn't want breakfast. There surprisingly are no other cafes, convenience stores or facilities to get breakfast in the immediate area, so you would have to purchase before you go back to the hotel & eat in your room or take shuttle into Shin Osaka station. It is cheaper to pre-book breakfast, I recall, rather than purchase on the day.

You can certainly visit Kyoto on a day trip in that its easy to travel from Osaka to Kyoto (plenty of trains) but whether you could actually see an awful lot in Kyoto in a day is in my opinion questionable.
