I flew into Tokyo and hopped straight onto a train to Osaka as I was heading even further south the following day to Nagasaki.
The Remm was a snap to find - just a two minute walk within Shin Osaka from the North Exit of the platforms. You walk through a doorway, past a Regus Office and into a lift (elevator) lobby. The hotel reception in on the 12th floor.
Check in was quick and easy. There were automatic machines but I didn't look to see if they "spoke" English or not. The women on reception did speak English and I was sorted and ready to head to my room in minutes having been given a key, a bottle of water and a choice of tea bags to use with the kettle in my room.
My room was just down the hall. It was compact as I would expect but kitted out with everything that I could have asked for and more.
The bedroom had a flat screen television with movies for 1000 Yen a day (standard in Japanese business hotels), a small fridge for the water and anything else I wanted to put into it, a kettle and cup, a small desk and great lighting. There was also an alarm clock next to the bed and a set of phone adapters that pulled out of the bed side table.
The bed was firm, as most Asian beds are but very comfortable indeed.
The bathroom had a fantastic rain forest shower with a HUGE shower head. Hot water was plentiful. Shampoo, Conditioner and shower gel came in large containers and there was face/hand soap on the sink as well. Additionally there was a hair brush, razor, cotton swabs and toothbrush.
I didn't try their breakfast as there were plenty of places in the station to eat. Dinner was easy to find without going any further than the station either.
I did pop into Osaka proper to buy a camera and there were trains about every 3 minutes and it took about 5 minutes to get to Osaka Station.
Spotlessly clean, well air conditioned and very comfortable - a great way to start a wonderful trip.
