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 …
... the preparation process was amazing. This lady had some system build of scientific laboratory equipment serving as a coffee maker. Clean, precise and transparent. I started to feel that Japan will be full of things I’ve never seen or tried before. I liked that feeling. Once we had enough caffeine in our veins we headed to traditional Japanese fast food. According to map we grab at subway station that was the most recommended place to eat in ...
... the entire menu was in Japanese, and our server did not speak any English at all for the first time this trip, I think, but it was tasty. After dinner, we continued own the dori to make another attempt at seeing some nightlife. I had some sweet potato Shochu at a japanese restaurant/bar (that is akin to vodka, but I think it's better), some Yoicho whisky at a European style pub, then a Kirin beer at an Irish bar. After that, bed time!
... an older guy from San Francisco who was friendly. We came prepared with snacks and bento (box) lunches. The Japanese countryside is very hilly and green. It was cool to shoot by countless small towns with their trademark thatched roofs, and also the farms and rice paddies, many which are under water. Not to sound to lame, but it was just really nice.
We are going to have to get used to these backpacks though. We were getting spoiled in ...
