We arrived almost midnight in this hotel since that is how our flight schedule dictates. Going to this hotel using Rapid Express from Kansia airport is very convenient and changed trains to Hotel Kintetsu. For a first timer in Japan, it was easy and the hotel is very near the train station only about 3 minute walk. The hotel staff... More

We took the airport bus from kansai airport and it dropped us off directly in front of the hotel! Although we took Philippine Airlines which made us arrive at around 10pm for checkin, it was a breeze!we had small children with us so the attendants at the lobby offered help to bring our luggages to our room.i tried to give...

Extremely convenient for Universal studios. The room (corner family) is basic and just big enough for our family of four with two kids age 7 to 9. Both the room type and Carpark fee are high compared with elsewhere - I think it is the universal studios premium. Service is good, anyway. Recommended to those going to spend one whole... More

I'm always reluctant to give a poor grading, but not for this hotel in Osaka, on the grounds of Universal Studios. Whilst the service and friendliness of the staff is superb. The condition of the rooms is pathetic. Stayed there on 2 Dec 14 with my wife and 2 children. Booked 2 standard rooms. The mattresses were very thin and... More

Only 2 plus points for this hotel - 1. located nearest the universal studio, and you can buy tickets in their lobby 2. has character room that has souvenir for the kids. Apart from these, I find it overpriced and the service was not comparable to the service I have known Japanese people usually extend. The place doesn't have mineral... More

This hotel is nearest to the gate of Universal Studio Osaka. Our character room was much more spacious as compared to Keihan Universal City (as friends booked in there and we could compare). There were welcome gifts on our beds and amenities were unique and complete. Overall, the room was comfortable and cosy. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Drove to this hotel all the way from Yokosuka for 8 long hours to see the Universal Studios. Good thing the hotel is right next to the theme park, so access to the park is a breeze. Parking from what I remember was expensive so we didn't bother to use our car to explore the vicinity. Had numerous restaurants outside... More

Chose to stay here purely based on location next to USJ. We had a family corner room with a view of the park. Room very good size with 4 beds for a family of four. Didn't eat in the hotel as there was such a great choice just outside the entrance. Easy to get to the hotel as train station... More

The hotel is ideally located between JR station, Universal City and Universal Studios Japan. You can find plenty of restaurants here. There are also convenience stores that operate 24 hours. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful. We were able to have a good view of the theme park from our character room. Great hotel.
