I booked the non-smoking family room early on the Internet so the price was reasonable. The location is ideal since it is close to the JR Universal City Station, Universal Port (to go to the Kaiyukan Aquarium), and close to the entrance of Universal Studios. Our room consisted of two double beds, a roller bed, and a sofa bed. Check-in/check-out... More

I was very pleased with the location of the hotel and how easy it is to access by bus from Itami airport in Osaka. It's about 930 yen one way on the airport bus to the park which you purchase from the airport bus counter, the return ticket you purchase from the bus attendant on the day you are leaving... More

Stayed here for a weekend while I was going to Universal Studios. Very convenient to the theme park – about a three minute walk. As it was a weekend the hotel was very busy and it did take ten minutes at one point to get to the ground floor due to all the lifts taking so long and then stopping... More

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

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
