This is now my hotel of choice in Osaka. It is not in the Umeda area, which is where most of my meetings tend to be, but the local amenities more than make up for that. The location is great - I found it very difficult to find on my first visit, but once you know where it is, it is extremely easy to get to Namba station. The rooms are fine, all mod cons, the only reason I have given 4 stars rather than 5 is that the hotel is very strict on check-in time, which is 3pm. I should say that this is fairly common in Japan, but when you arrive after a long-haul flight at 10:30, this is not what you want to hear - and there appears to be no option to pay for an early check-in. I was eventually offered a room at 2pm, so there clearly is a little flexibility, but that took a lot of persuasion. Having said that, there are plenty of shops and restaurants in Namba Parks, and in other parts of the Namba station complex, so you can find something to do whilst waiting, and at least you can leave your luggage at the hotel.
