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 …
... then our graveyards at home. We walked farther and at the top you could see the graves stretched out every which way. Up, down, left, right they were everywhere with the forest acting as a beautiful backdrop. We reached the temple and stepped out onto the large deck and were engulfed by nature. I could have sat there forever but on we walked. Another artist added his caligraphy to our prayer book. We walked the nature trail down through the trees. We took ...
... about it. It was until about 30min later when I was in the elevator to the bus that it occurred to me the laptop was missing. Thankfully when I went back to the stool it was still there. Also even more thankfully I remember the laptop before getting on the bus when I stil could go back rather than after the bus had left teh airport.
Decided to catch the bus from Osaka airport to Naha. While a little more expensive then catching the train, at least I dont need to ...
