Probably one of the best places I've stayed in the world ever.
We booked this hotel as it was close to the castle and got a deal on a castle view room. There were cheaper options but this was worth extra.
The staff were superb, couldn't do enough to help. Felt bad for the small female porter who insisted on taking our cases to our room :)
Our room had an a amazing view of the castle, park and downtown Osaka. The decor was a little dated but was all spotless and it was a massive room. Spent all my time in the room either sleeping or staring out the window anyway.
While you'll have to get the train into downtown Osaka if you want all the nightlife, there are a couple of handy convenience stores and a small mall with some nice cafes right near the hotel.
The park and castle totally make up for not being central.
