So I saw that I can't post my room rate, but I will say that I paid a little over three figures total for three nights. I found it to be a very pleasant stay, especially for that price. This is Japan, so customer service was top notch, same as you'd expect to find anywhere else in the country. The one departure from other hotels is that they will not make up your room automatically unless you indicate it with the doorhanger, though I'm sure a quick call downstairs would have down the same. Also razors, toothbrushes and the like are down in the lobby instead of being refreshed in your room.
Since it's on the cheaper end, the actual hotel outside the lobby is more reminiscent of a military barracks than a Marriott. The room was fine, though one end of the bed was definitely a bit more worn in. The TV is about the size of a monitor, which wasn't an issue for me because I wasn't in Osaka to watch TV. Fridge worked fine, and thanks to Google Translate I was able to operate the AC unit.
As for the area, I've seen other reviews take issue with love hotels being in the area. Couples need a place to, well, couple. And I can't be positive but I'm pretty sure there was a guy outside offering some ladies for companionship, but again, this is not uncommon and as a tourist I wasn't offered. Neither of these things impacted the stay at the hotel.
In summation, if you need a budget hotel to lay your head at night, this place is more than acceptable.
