If you can find fault with this hotel, I don't want to sit next to you on even a short-haul flight!! Huge room, a bathroom clean enough for open-heart surgery!!! The choice at breakfast required at least three stomachs to do it justice and the staff would have done a triple somersault if I'd been malicious enough to ask! Yes,...

We stayed in this hotel during our recent visit to Universal Studio. I just absolutely loved this place. We got there early in the morning coming in from Tokyo and we were able to drop our suitcase without any hassle and just went to Universal Studio (about 5 mins walk) and spent a whole day there. When we went back...

I stayed in three hotels in Osaka and this was by far the best. Nice staff, very friendly and good English. The rooms are spacious and clean and feel fairly luxurious. The bathroom was also quite big and featured a walk-in shower. It is also located right next to a JR station, so it's easy access.

The hotel is located on the strip just outside the JR station, 5 minutes walk from the park. Rooms are big and comfortable, bathroom and shower are great. They even decorated our bad for our honeymoon:) Breakfast is really rich and tasty, big selection of food. The only thing is that during breakfast rush hour you have to wait in...

The hotel is only a short walk to Universal Studios and Universal City Walk, which is great and the hotel lobby etc is all very friendly. The rooms were a good size, good breakfast selection, and the restaurant at night was also very good, but that's were it ended for us. It's not really adult friendly. No Gym, No Pool...

The hotel is a bit outside Osaka, 200m from the station Universal city. The hotel has large rooms (compared to Japanese standards), very clean, excellent breakfast although a bit expensive Luggage transfer service very efficient(3000 y for 2 luggage from Osaka to Tokyo) In conclusion a highly recommended hotel especially for families with children

We had three rooms for seven nights in this hotel during the Easter holiday. Universal Studio was actually the last attraction of our 8-day itinerary. We decided to stay here for the whole trip because hotel price is reasonable in the holiday season, the property nears Shinsaibashi shopping area, Osaka Castle, and the highway to Kyoto, Nara and Kobe. As...

We stayed for four nights with a view overlooking the harbour. Coffee shop in lobby. Room was very clean and we loved the complimentary cosmetics each day. The kids loved the Minion theme and non-stop Minion movie channel. Only 200m walk to Universal City Station and the Studios.
