I got quite a good deal on this place so I am reasonably happy with this choice. There is an underground arcade sort of connected to the hotel, but the section closest to the hotel is fairly quiet with no shops. Have to walk maybe for 5 minutes or so in the arcade before shops appear. It feels better to walk on the street level.
It is a short walk to the Shinsaibashi shopping street, and also possible to walk to Namba.
They do have a funny sort of electronic safe system in the lobby area. It seemed like we were the only ones using it!
