Great location! We used the airport limousine bus, and it dropped us off at the hotel right next to Hotel Keihan - about a minute walk away. There is another Universal Keihan nearby right next to the train station. If you’re arriving by train, it’s very convenient, but if you’re taking the airport shuttle, you’ll have a long walk around the block. So Keihan Universal City is much more convenient. The decor is very cute, and the staff is extremely friendly. One person was even going to get me an umbrella when it started raining. You step out the front door and you’re right on Universal City Walk, just a short walk away from Universal Studio. So the location is great, the staff is great, and the price is right. I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it.

Great if you want to be in Universal City.
Nice hotel with fun things around it. We wanted to explore Tokyo area more, and its a little out of the way. Not the hotel's fault - we needed to plan better.

Located near Universal, dining, and the train
No complaints about this hotel or my stay. Our room was on the smaller side but can't complain for the price and location of this hotel. Also, there was a convention in the hotel during our stay so it was pretty packed and the elevators were always full, but we weren't in any rush going anywhere so it was ok. Oh, a perk to staying in this hotel is that you can buy tickets for Universal the day before instead of having to get it at the park the morning of.

Great value for Universal Studios Visit!
This is a very nice hotel for visiting Universal Studios Osaka. My husband and I stayed for three nights with our 2-year-old daughter. Our "triple" room included a double bed that seemed more like a queen and two twin beds. The beds were very close together. If you have mobility issue, take a look at the photos before making your room choice. We paid a little extra for daily breakfast. The breakfast included American "continental" breakfast items, like bread and pastries. It also had chicken nuggets, a chocolate fountain, and a bit of fruit. Other than that, it was very Japanese! A cool experience if you enjoy fish, rice, and takoyaki (fried balls of ground octopus). My husband would just have soon gone across the walkway to a coffee shop each day. Definitely a question of personal choice. For Westerners not accustomed to Japanese breakfast, it may be better to pay-as-you go for breakfast so you can switch to a more conventional option. Overall, a great hotel at a great price in a cool location! It is, however, best for a very specific type of travel--a visit to Universal. (One more note: Universal Studios will not let you leave and return on the same day unless you buy an entire separate ticket. Our original plan was to bring our daughter back to the hotel to nap. We ended up not being able to do that. However, they rented strollers that recline all the way for 1000 yen, so she was able to get a good nap while we walked around the park.)
