    Right in front of the main entrance of USJ. The only disappointment I had was they were giving me a smoking room when it was clearly indicated on my booking details that I booked for a non smoking room because have a child.

    Great location. Clean room. Right across USJ. ”

    We searched for a hotel that's good value for money and near USJ. And we hit the jackpot! It was just a stone throw's away from USJ. The room was clean, and the view was great. It was quite an old hotel but very well maintained. The staff was very helpful and accommodating too. We had a great and memorable stay there. We will definitely be back. And of course, we will recommend it to family and friends.

    A perfect place to stay”

    If you're quite on budget but still want to stay in a hotel that is very near to USJ, this is the best place for you. A few minutes walk and you're there. I love how friendly the staff are. They even help us to get the room we wanted since our agent messed up our booking. The place was accessible to almost all shops and you have variety of choices of food resto. The place was so clean and staff were very accommodating. The only difficulty we had was communication. Not all can speak english so may want to learn to speak a bit of japanese. I would like to stay there again if ever we visit japan again.

    Pleasant stay at Hotel Kintetsu Universal City Osa”

    Proximity to Universal Studios
    None I can think of

    I was planning a holiday for my family in Tokyo and decided at the last minute that we would include a visit to Universal Studios in Osaka for our 4 year old daughter. So as not to deviate too much from our Tokyo itinerary, we decided to spend only one night in Osaka ie. take the early shinkansen from Tokyo to Osaka to be in time for the park opening in the morning, spend the whole day at the park, and return to Tokyo the following day. It was therefore important to find accommodation that was close to the park so as not to waste valuable time commuting from the hotel to the park and back. We were therefore very pleasantly surprised to find that Hotel Kintetsu Universal City was literally a stone's throw from the park - it took just 1-2 minutes to take a pleasant walk from the hotel doorstep to the park entrance! That wasn't only the plus point - the room was also very spacious and came with free take home Universal Studios toiletries. I will most definitely stay at this hotel on my next visit to Universal Studios, hopefully sooner rather than later!

    Great value, and large space.”

    Large lobby, and cheap room rate.
    Old type deco. and few facilities.

    The hotel is big and look great,even it is an old type look and aged. Its room is much larger than most Japanese hotel, so if you are not looking at a newer or fashioned hotel, then this one will be the best buy.

    Nearest hotel to Universal Studio Japan”

    Two minutes walk from hotel to Universal Studio Japan. We travel with 6 years old son so we got corner family room on 23rd floor, with 3 single beds, the room was superb with view from USJ. The best part is that you can sneak out from USJ back to the hotel and go back in(You need to be Stamped though)whenever you want. There are aslo Mcdonald, Mos Burger, Starbucks around. If you like japanese food, I'd recommend Ramen restaurant and place call Ootoya. Their food are best with reasonable prices.
    Air condition control panel was in japanese so you will need to ask for instruction on how to control it as your preferences.

    During our stay, my son told me that if we are visitting USJ again, he want to stay at this hotel. I would recommend this hotel to those who want to enjoy themselves at USJ. Since you can buy admission ticket at USJ counter on ground floor. I got discount from buying express pass from being guest of this hotel. You need to recheck this special rate again from USJ's web site under Benefit of staying at Official Hotel of USJ. One more thing, this is the only hotel that equipped with in room Safe box. My other 2 didn't have. Hotel officers hardly speak English but they are very willing to help in everyway they can.

    Everything is fine except for the cleanliness in breakfast restaurant”

    Location is great. It's just in front of USJ entrance. The hotel theme is cute. The staff is good, explanation is clear. I stayed for 2 nights so I can have breakfast in both international restaurant and Japanese restaurant (which is OOTOYA). Inter bf is interesting, various food are offered. But then I found that the soft-cream spoon has some yolk stick to it. Then I checked every single spoon and found it dirty. That's terrible. So I change to OOTOYA in the next morning and everything is okay. I suggest the hotel improve the cleanliness of the restaurant.

    ファミリータイプで4ベッドのお部屋でした。窓を開けるとUSJが見えます。7階だったのでそれほど綺麗には見えませんでしたが満足しました。しかし、こんなに高額を支払っての価値があるのかよくわかりませんでした。前日に近鉄さんから電話があり、カウントダウンチケットなければ手配しますよ?と。また31日はグラスをいただけるイベントがあり、そこはうれしかったです。またパークに近いので何度もホテルに戻れてよかったです!もう少し両親的なお値段でしたらまた利用したいですね。今度は平日を狙います!
