Check in and out is very smooth. It is a bit annoying that you can not go straight to the rooms from the ground floor but I guess it is good for security reasons. You need to change on the 2nd floor where the lobby is.
It is just about 10 minute walk from Osaka station if you follow the Yotsubashisuji Road which starts from Hilton Hotel in front of Osaka station. There are many restaurants, convenience stores and ramen shops nearby so you will never starve staying in this hotel. Most of the places are open til late. Some people had different opinions but the breakfast at JPY 1,000 is not so bad.
If my instinct is correct, the hotel had a concept of attracting women but in reality, it is attracting business men who don't smoke. Nishi-Umeda station is also nearby so you shouldn't have any trouble going to your destination. You can always walk to Osaka station.
This hotel is the only hotel I had no issue with the noise outside the hotel as well as noise from the hallway. I have slept well in all my stays here. And I like their PJs. This has become one of my favorite hotel on my business trips to Osaka considering the overall performance in terms of value.
