We stayed for 14 days in late Sep / early Oct 2014. This was our second stay at this hotel. Staff were always helpful, room (a Queen Deluxe) was spacious, quiet and kept clean. Couldn't be more pleased with the service. Hotel itself is located right by JR Osaka station and Nishi-Umeda metro station so it's really well connected. Makes a good base from which to explore Osaka and all points beyond.
Tiny room, but clean and having all you need, and that's what you can get at this price in central Umeda. It's very close to airport bus, JR and subway station. Walking distance to many department stores, restaurants and Umeda sky building. Comparing to other expensive 5 star hotels nearby, Hearton is a great choice if you only want to spend less than 200 dollars a night.
Good location but can be a little difficult to find - need to make sure you take the correct exit out of JR Osaka Station. Room is very clean however traditional japanese size room so if you have two suitcases there isnt much room. Within easy walking distance to restaurants and shops. If you are a non-smoker you must book a non-smoking room.
