I booked this hotel because it is one of the cheapest and available hotel in Osaka during the holiday season. We stayed on the same hotel last year. The place is quite near the Esaka station exit 6. Although, if you have heavy luggage, you need to get down using the elevator from the train station, you will need to cross the street.
Free breakfast is provided but limited to rice, hard boiled egg, miso soup, and some variety of breads. Make sure to use the elevator inside the parking garage if you have luggage as the reception table is on the second floor.
Esaka station is roughly two station away from Shin-Osaka station but around 20 minutes ride to Umeda Namba stations. Last year, I utilized the Loppi machine in Lawson to buy USJ tickets with the help of the shop attendants. However, this time around, I booked everything online.
