Worth every yen. KEIHAN UNIVERSAL CITY HOTEL became one of my favorite hotels. I am sure that you will love the hotel if you are planning to go to Universal Studios Japan. I went there when I was a high school student, and I thought it was something like a dream. First of all, the hotel is conveniently located and... More

Best location, i.e. only steps away from Universal Studio. Strongly recommended for families with small children. There are plenty of restaurants and shops to find necessities. One drawback is the poorly-handled baggage process as the queue is very long and slow.

Family character room was nothing much more than loud cartoon curtains and bedsheets, After placing one double and single bed side by side, not much space anymore. View was terrible - rusty industrial area (which explains the curtains!). Just a min walk from Universal City station. It was easy to get here from Osaka Station - 10 m ride. If... More

The reason for staying at this hotel and the clientele it attracts should be fairly obvious. You're paying for the location, and although it's nothing spectacular it's certainly reasonable value. We stayed in a double room, which was typical of other hotels (small prefab room). The room was possibly a little smaller than you could get at the same price... More

We rode the JR Yumesaki line and got here at about 10:40am. There was already a long queue of people trying to check in, that really took me by surprise. (Same thing happened next morning.) Everyone wanted to check-in first and drop their luggages so they can get in the park to play without worries. We queued for 1/2 hour... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in April 2010 while on a tour with two other friends. I'll start off with the rooms. Everyone knows that in Japan, the room sizes tend to be on the smaller side. However, the room that we got was huge! How huge? It was big enough to have 3 super single beds in it! The... More

The hotel's right by the entrance to the train station, and a couple of hundred yards from the entrance to the Universal theme park. It's new, the rooms are spacious by Japanese standards (by the time you've got to deepest post-industrial Osaka you'll be familiar with Japanese western-style rooms so you'll be impressed here!), the bathroom is well appointed, there's...
