This hotel is a nice balance between near it all and affordable. The bathroom and bathtub are large. Being 6'2 and trying to take a nice hot bath after a long day of walking/shopping and getting lost is usually impossible in most Japanese style hotels (kind of like trying to stuff yourself into one of those metal wash basins), but I found the tub to be sufficient in size (which was nice). The rooms are nice enough, but do show signs of age. They are clean and spacious (again, for a japanese style hotel room). I did like that the toilet had it's own room, some people may get a little confused by the bath/shower setup (do a little googling on this).
For JR Pass holders, the JR Namba station is about 5-6 blocks south of here. You are in the Dotonbori area, so you are about a block and a half north of the start of the river walk area, 2-ish blocks south of America-mura, and about 3-4 blocks south of Shinsaibashi station. Three blocks east is the main drag if you want to do some high-end shopping (Burberry, Prada, etc...), but if you go past that there are a bunch of shopping/food in that area.
