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.

Perfect location! Right near universal studios and all the great shops and restaurants at universal walk. Room was a bit squishy with 3 beds & portable cot, but by Japanese standards it was still spacious. Nice river views, great atmosphere for the kids, and I enjoyed the little touches such as; a step for kids to see the fish up...

The hotel itself is very old, some of the statues around the place are so decrepit they are almost frightening. Plus really expensive breakfast with very few western choices. On the plus side, very clean & very close to universal. And also good access to a variety of restaurants just outside of Universal.

Its a great hotel. Me and my family had a great time staying there. The staff is great and very helpful, the ladies from the cleaning service department are very helpful. Its a theme hotel so if you are travelling with kids this is the place. Its near to the port to Kaiyukan aquarium and to Universal Studio Japan.

We spent two days at this hotel as part of our honeymoon and a tour of Japan. I managed to get a decent deal but the hotel was very expensive. However, you are paying for the locality and the fact you can walk to Universal Studios Japan which makes it so much easier if you're spending more than one day...

We stayed for the rate, not for Universal, and it was a gem. Only a couple stops from Shin-Osaka, so we could "check in" early, leave our luggage with baggage check, and come back after check-in time to get our room key. Short walking distance from train station and Universal Citiwalk. We faced a roller coaster but the windows were...

After a long trip through Japan with our family, it was payback for our kids - Universal studios and Harry Potter. An excellent base for this purpose. It was also easy to reach the hotel by train from Kyoto and to travel to the Airport by train when leaving. The food offering close by was not very Japanese, but after...
