Stayed here for 5 nights in December.
We arrived around lunchtime and we could go straight up to our room after checking in. We had a fantastic view overlooking the river and Dotombori area.
The staff were fantastic! You had to leave your key as you left for the day but staff were available quite late to be able to pick your key up (staff actually remembered us and knew exactly what key to give us without asking). And other staff were very kind. One staff member was very kind and chatty and would always wave and talk to us when he saw us.
The room was quite large and we had futons and a private bathroom. The futons were a little thin, but there were extra in the cupboard so we just doubled them. Staff will everyday would refill your sweets (free) and there was always a variety of traditional Japanese sweets.
Great area with plenty of shops and restaurants, with a variety of choices. Quite easy to get lost though (as we did, but we found the people of Osaka extreamly helpful!)
My only complaint would be the internet. This was the only hotel which didnt provide wifi during our trip in Japan (the other places we stayed varied from hostel to ryokan) and there was only one computer which seemed to not like some websites (yahoo mail) and slow.
Would come back to this hotel again!
