The Hotel Nikko Kansai Airport is just a few meters away from the Kansai International Airport in Osaka. This makes it one of the favorite hotels for people who have to spend the night due to a layover or because they have an early flight the next morning. The hotel meets all the expectations of a hotel of its category. Whenever I've stayed alone, they've given me a double instead of a single and I've always been very comfortable, the rooms are comfortable and spacious as are the bathrooms. Curiously, adding to that, the hotel like the airport is built on an artificial island on the sea.
The Aqua Hotel is a romantic hotel known for its top-floor suites (as you can see in the video) that have windows in the ceiling just above the tub allowing you enjoy the rain, sun or snow outside while you bathe. The rooms are spacious and carefully decorated. They all have a TV, on-demand movies, karaoke and PlayStation included in the price. The suites cost about 150 euros per night, or 70 euros for 2-3 hours.
The hostel Sun Plaza is a economy hotel located in a quiet neighbourhood in southern Osaka. The toilets and showers are shared and the rooms are small, but it is next to a train station and a subway, so it is well connected. You can also stroll to Shinsekai and Tsutenkaku. Moreover, the price (15-20 euros per room) make it backpacker worthy. There are many homeless people in the area, but I have never heard of a problem. I recommend watching the video for more information.
In the big cities with good nightlife in Japan, such as Osaka (among many others), there is a very special type of hotel called "capsule hotels". They are made to optimize the most, and the client, instead of having a room, has a "capsule" that is, a carrier which fits one person laying down, with radio and television incorporated inside. Upon entering they give you a locker, where you leave your clothes and luggage (restricted amounts) and you wear a yakata inside (like a robe). Once inside, there is a TV room, vending machines for hot and cold drinks and communal showers. Sometimes there is also a sauna and computers to access the internet. They are known for being very economical and because there are many similar types of hotels located in various parts of the city. Usually there are some floors for men and others for women, but they're not usually mixed. I would not recommend staying in a hotel like this for more than one night, but as an experience, you have to try it! Eye! Many of these sites do not permit people with tattoos.
The Ramada Osaka is off the Nakatsu subway station. It is one stop from Umeda and less than a kilometre from the centre of the Kita-Ku where the JR Osaka station is.

The hotels location is good, with direct access from the subway at exit 3. All rooms have internet access included in the price, plus air conditioning, safe and TV. The hotel is clean and the service is good, but the room in which I stayed (individual economy) was pretty narrow (you can see the video).

The Spa Garden Palace Hotel is a small hotel located in Osaka, close to Osaka Kansai Airport with a free airport shuttle service that takes about 15 minutes either direction. Although there isn't a mat or a futon to sleep on, the hotel's style is still very Japanese, meaning small rooms and tiny bathrooms. However they offer excellent service and a spa style that is typically "onsen" Japanese. For breakfast you can choose between a Japanese and a European breakfast, you can see them in the posted photographs. There are also two videos, one of the room and one of the SPA.
The Namba Oriental Hotel has a great location on the main pedestrian street in Osaka's nightlife capital of Namba. It's also located only a couple of steps from Dotombori.
