I stayed on 4/11 and 4/16 at this grand hotel which is conveniently located in the center of Umeda district. Both times I was given a "lady's room" (single room), the 2nd time I asked for one with view and I got the fantastic view of the main road! The single rooms were small but that's how it is in Japan. They're small but not making you feel close phobia; besides, the rooms magically have all the essentials one needs, including a electrical tea kettle, a few tea bags, and a beautiful porcelain cup so you can enjoy your own private "tea ceremony". The rooms are also very tidy and the bed and comforters were clean and cozy! I really felt so relaxed and being at home.
The breakfast buffet (1,000 yen) is at "Olympia" downstairs at B1, where it also serves buffet dinner to tour groups. I didn't like their breakfast selection but the dinner was great! If you do not need much foods for breakfast you can easily find a bakery right through the tunnel leading to the shopping area where there's plenty of sitting room. Outside the hotel at the corner of the bus terminal there's another simple breakfast place where with 600 yen, you get a sandwich, a cup of coffee and a boiled egg.
The service provided by the hotel staff is quite good and satisfactory. I can't think of anything negative about it. If I ever visit Osaka again in the future I'll definitely choose it as my home base again!
