This is the third Super Hotel that we stayed in (after Kyoto and Tokyo). Although we still liked the Kyoto Gojo branch, this hotel has a distinct advantage of having an "onsen" or hot spring bath which can be used by all the hotel guests. And after a whole day of walking around the city touring, it is very refreshing to dip in the hot bath (public one but males and females use it on separate times of the day).
The breakfast fare is also more varied compared to Kyoto & Tokyo branches, but again, the bread are not freshly baked unlike in Kyoto.
The location may be a problem for those with big luggage since it is quite far from the East Gate exit of the Shin-osaka Station. There is also no escalator coming down from the train station - so it was difficult with our luggage. But if this is the last leg of your trip before going home via the Kansai Airport, the advantage is that you can get a direct train (Kansai Airport Express) from this station.
