Great Hotel when visiting Japan Universal Studio

This was one of the best Hotel my family had stayed during our recent trip to Japan, The room was spacious, the decor was beautiful, the staff were very friendly and helpful. 2 minutes walk to the UniversalCity train station and Universal City Walk that has many restaurants. The Hotel has a great water view overlooking the Port.

Spacious room

We selected the hotel as we were planning to go to the Harry Potter land in Universal Studios, Osaka. The hotel was about four stops or 15 mins train ride away from the Osaka Station. The room was much bigger than similar priced hotels near the Osaka Station. With a little more trip planning, it is still possible to use the hotel as a base for a day trip to Kyoto (which we did). Bathroom has separate bath area, toilet and washing area. Room has a sofa, queen bed and space to move around. Room view was towards the Universal studios. We'll come back again if we visit Osaka!

Great for location and fun

We stayed at Universal Port Hotel for two nights. It was conveniently located next to the subway, so easy access to get here and leave to airport. The hotel was fun and decorated for Christmas with whimsical and colorful trees and displays. The room was plenty big for us, a family of four and had four beds. We enjoyed the fancy toilet but didn't like the automatic hall light that activated with movement which meant it went on whenever someone used the bathroom. The beds were also very hard, which we've learned is common in Japan, but still uncomfortable. The buffet had a large display but a limited amount was really Western style, although it's advertised as such. We bought our Universal tickets at the the hotel and were able to get express passes as well which saved time at the park.

Family Trip

Good for family with kids, especially if you visit to USJ. Nice view at night and nearby to eateries and JR station. We stayed with our 2 children aged 5 & 7, it's comfortable for all four of us in a standard twin sharing room. Size of room is big for a Japan standard. Strongly recommended.

Clean, quiet, good view, good staff

Sure, its not IN Osaka City BUT we its very easy to get into the City from here as its right near the train station and if 2 non Japanese speaking Aussies can find it easy, anyone can!!! anyway, we arent busy city fans so this was ideal for us. Rooms are spotless, hotel is very modern & fun to explore, even for adults! Shops on sight (cafe, restaurants, little supermarket, Universal Studios store) and it was brilliant to find a place like this that had do it yourself laundries in the hotel (3 weeks of travelling requires some washing) & it was a bargain too. Room was a good size, we had a view facing Universal Studios and Citywalk which was nice. Bathroom was spotless, bath was huge! Love the fact that the bathroom has the toilet separate from the shower area & we do love the high tech toilets that were here, I want one!!! No smoking rooms and thank God, no smell of smoke in our rooms as I HATE smoking. Love the little aquariums through the lift areas with the "jellyfish" in them. Staff are friendly & efficient but many arent fluent in English, but they know enough to help any english speaking tourists get around. We found one of the BellBoys was fluent & he had a great time having a giggle at me as I bought a new camera that was in Japanese, & I joined him having a laugh at myself as it is a bit silly but funny (as it was a bargain!) Near Universal City Walk so no problem finding somewhere to eat as there were plenty of places to find food & it was cheap too, not like "tourist" areas here in Australia where they really charge a fortune for everything. I would have no problems staying here again & recommending it to others
