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

We tried the kabuto costume. The helmet was so heavy in my head. But it was fun. Naoya paid for me for this costume rent. For wearing the costume, visitors have to pay 300 ¥ per person. There is a souvenir shop in the museum. Atsuki gave me Osaka castle bookmark. I was very happy in Osaka Castle. ...
... not to be. The next day we visited Noji castle and tried to see the imperial palace (which was closed because it was a Saturday.) We also went to the famous food market that goes on forever and ever. If I hadn't lost my sense of taste and hadn't been feeling like **** I would have been in 7th heaven. But I was fading fast so we went back to the hostel. This is where symptoms went from bad to worse. When I lay down all of the pressure in my sinuses rushed to my ears and I sat back up ...

A Japanese businessman approached us and in perfect English introduced himself by name and told us he was a VP of a big bank in Osaka...and wanted to buy us drinks. Very much taken aback - we weren't too sure...but the guy was pretty persistent. It became clear very quickly that he just wanted to talk to us to brush up on his English...and we were ok with this..for ...
