We loved our stay at the Hearton Nishi Umeda.
Even if it hadn't averaged less than AUD60/night it still would have been a great choice. Booked a semi-double so arrived knowing that room was small.
Check-in was so perfectly polite - he just wanted to check we knew we would only have one bed (we are a gay male couple) and he smiled when I said yes, we knew. Had room up on 18th floor and although would have been great to be looking out at Umeda Sky Building we had no complaints with view across to Hilton and beyond.
Pillows were very odd and imagine we could have asked for different/more but wasn't an issue.
Hotel is located right next to an arcade filled with restaurants and cafes and even a supermarket and it took all of five minutes to walk from the Osaka Station (not Shin Osaka Station). We caught a JR rapid from Kansai Station (about JPY2100 for two) instead of the high speed JR train as we knew we could walk from Osaka Station and njot have to change trains at SHin Osaka.
Had buffet breakfast one morning in the restaurant in the lobby and was perfectly adequate. Beers downstairs in the other restaurant and bit confused by happy hour as although we bought three each only first was at happy hour prices. Not worth worrying about.
Used laundry down in the basement - JPY300 for a wash and 100 per 15 minutes of dry. For us a god send as we sweat like pigs while we were in Osaka, and continue to as I sit here in Hiroshima typing this.
Highly recommend the Hearton Nishi Umeda

Had a bit of a bad night, waking several times because of the pain in my toe and when I went to get out of bed in the morning, I almost screamed in agony as my foot touched the floor. The walk yesterday had inflamed my toe beyond the initial onset of the gout. Fortunately, checkout time wasn't until eleven and we were able to extend that until …
... in Seoul about 4 and get ready to get off the plane and stretch our legs, but no. We just refuel and sit on the Tarmac for an hour and then head on back to Osaka. Apparently, the weather there has improved - the rain has stopped but it is still windy. SUPER! after a pretty bumpy approach (but this time the winds only saying about 80 km/hr) we finally land in Osaka at 6.45pm. Ethan, Devon and Tayla were totally awesome and even entertained Sophie and ...
... Japanese food- in Japanese! Now, I haven't taken a Japanese class since December and was still a tad jet-lagged so I did my best to say a few sentences and everyone in the room seemed to appreciate what I had to say. By the way, this was the first time I ever had to use chopsticks and was absolutely terrible with them (but I am proud to say I am now much better). My friend Kelcey also introduced me to karaoke- we spent two hours belting our lungs ...
... but timber housing also gives a medieval european feel too.

There was a grand opera house with performances but closed today. Internet cafe is hard to find. $5 for 30 min and screwed up keyboard keeps reverting to japanese. The spacebar is the size of the ...
