This is a great hotel. I am writing because in the review below, the manager says there is free wifi in cafe ru'dor. This is NOT true. I went there and noticed on my phone there was a network there in addition to the SPG guest room one, asked the staff, who told me there is no wifi.
That said, this is a lovely hotel. Taking the elevator up to 12 and then switching again can be a little annoying. Everything good that has been said has already been - great beds, beautiful rooms, good staff and location. One thing I found at this hotel is that there wasn't much of an effort made for non Japanese guests. There were very few TV channels in English, and i was looking forward to using the TV over the bathtub until I realized it ONLY had Japanese channels. Also, the hotel should maintain a list of local restaurants with English menus. We had to ask the staff for recommendations and this was time consuming; they should have had a list on hand. I have stayed at the Sheraton Osaka and they had a convenient map showing a 2 or 3 block radius around the Sheraton and all the restaurants it contained. Very helpful late at night when you're cold and hungry. There is a good Izakaya across the street, Watami, that is great for a few drinks and a quick meal.
This is not a cheap hotel, but for Japan, I thought it was a good value for the price paid. It is small and has a boutique feel which is also nice. My main complaint is the wifi - 19000 yen a night is a lot to ask these days of leisure travelers, especially for a hotel that provides everything else.
