    Big triple room”

    We got the comfort triple which comes with 2 single and 1 double. The room is big. Near to train station and universal studio. There is one exit link to the shopping mall with restaurants. Easy to get food if the room does not come with breakfast. Hotel also provide 100 yen refundable locker service for those who require locker to store their luggage after check out.

    Beyond Expectation ”

    Only stay for one night after a long day spent in USJ. Chosen this hotel as it seem to be newer than the hotel next door with the price I paid for. This is not a new hotel, I didn't expect that much. But to my surprise, the room and the bathroom were in much better condition than I expected. It didn't look run down with a high maintenance and it was spotless. I like the theme of the room and the toiletries specially the colorful sponges, toothbrushes and hair clips. It was a 2mins walk from the metro and one minute walk to the shopping mall(turn out to Lawson). USJ also about 4mins walk to the entrance. We stayed in a comfort triple room which can accommodate up to 5 people that came with one queen bed and two single beds. Quite a decent size room. The reception were very polite, helpful and friendly. Highly recommended to stay with.

    Very convenient, near lawson , universal city and universal studio. Just few minutes walk to universal studio. Jr train terminal is just beside the hotel. Also, from Kansai airport the best way to get to the hotel is to ride a limousine bus which you could find just outside terminal 1 , exit 3 . This would directly go to Universal City and is walking distance only to Keihan hotel. Highly recommendable. You can leave your laggage at the locker room of the hotel after checkout for Y100 per locker but refundable.

    Very good”

    My 2 teenage children and I stayed at this hotel for 3 days and 2 nights because of its convenient distance to Universal Studios Japan. After exiting the train station (Universal Studios City St.), it just took a few minutes to reach the hotel. Check in and check out process was quite efficient. Some of the staff were able to converse in English but not exactly proficient. At every floor, the rooms had a certain theme which was really cute and made the ambience more comfortable. The room was also clean and comfortable. As for the TV, after 3pm ( check in time) channel 5 ( has its own sub-channels) offers movies such as Harry Potter, Jurassic Park and Minions on repeat in case you get bored. However, one downside was that they apparently don't provide mineral water in our package so we resorted to buying mineral water at Lawson as we are not accustomed to drinking tap water. Overall, it was a good stay.

    Perfect hotel for families wanting a total universal studios experience”

    I love the hotel. Getting from the airport to the hotel is so easy riding the airport limousine. It stops at the neghbor hotel kintetsu which is only a 3 minute walk. Checking in is a breeze. The staff are pleasant and can speak English. The standard triple room was spacious for the three of us and I just love the bathroom! The toilet was a toto washlet and has warm seat! Toiletries , towels and complimentary pajamas are replaced everyday. It is only about 5 minutes walk to universal studios and 3 minutes walk to the train station. So many restaurants around and lawsons groceries. Everything is within reach! There's a microwave oven, ice and vendo machine on each floor. All that for a great price. We stayed 4 nights snd we had a pleasznt sleep each night. Thank you Hotel Keihan Universal City. We would recommend it to friends and family .

    The hotel is just 5 minute walk to the USJ and you can buy USJ entrance tickets and express tickets there (today and the day after) at prices same on the USJ website with no service charge. It is very convenient for those who want to visit USJ but cannot fix the date before departure (like us going with kids). The rooms are clean and spacious for family. But the car park is a bit expensive and would be nice if it can be free for hotel guests.

    The hotel is a 3minute walk to USJ and is the best value one among the USJ partner hotels. I recommend this hotel for those who want to visit USJ. Clean, cozy and very good location. Room size is the average Japanese hotel room size since it's considered to be in a prime location.
