As a group of 3 adults and 2 children on a trip to visit Osaka, Kyoto, and Universal Studios, we were excited to find a reasonably priced hotel that would fit the needs of our group. We booked a family room and at check-in were excited to find we had a theme-park view. The rooms are a little dated but... More

I would not hv stayed in this hotel if not for the express ticket package for universal studio. The hotel is so basic that I feel like I am staying in a dormitory. The room is so small and the bathroom is equally tiny. It doesn't even have a proper wardrobe. Just a hanging frame with hangers provided . Furthermore... More

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

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
