If you're going to explore Osaka and the rest of Kansai area, Tennoji Miyako Hotel's location is hard to beat. Located just across the JR Tennoji Station, the hotel has connections also to Osaka's subway system down on its basement, so you don't even have to go out if the weather is cold (or hot).
The room size are generous with comfortable beds. We were booked at a smoking area (despite specifying in Agoda's site that we want to be in the non-smoking floor), but it didn't matter since the rooms were clean and free of odors. However, the hallways do have a lingering aroma of cigarette smoke. Toilets were immaculate and the Japanese-style toilets have English instructions on them, so it is very easy to use.
The hotel has its own food court (or at least in its own building) where you can have an affordable lunch. However, it opens at around 11AM, so you can't take breakfast there, if it isn't included in your booking. Still, there are a lot of choices in the number of shopping malls within the immediate area - MIO, Kintetsu, Abeno Q, Hoops, and within Tennoji Station. If all else fails, there are vendo machines and the Heart In Convenience store beside the hotel, near the JR office building.
Basing in Tennoji is a great option since the area is not as noisy as the busier Osaka districts and it is the nearest main terminal going to and from Kansai International Airport, which lessens your time lugging around heavy suitcases while avoiding the rushing Osaka workforce.
