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

... and a delightful residential area.
After our walk we crossed the wooden bridge, Hozugawa-kudari, and made our way to Nakanoshima Park on the other side of the river. We had to park the bike in a car park at R30 an hour and crossed a smaller wooden bridge over another river to get into the park. We sat and had a strawberry slush & an Asahi beer while the girls with the arc arrived.
We ambled back to Kyoto down the side of the Hozi-Gawa ...
