A bright and stylish hotel hugging the entrance to Universal Studios Japan, Hotel Universal Port is a perfect place for a family vacation. A huge fish tank greets you at registration, and the marine theme continues throughout the hotel. The large beds in the good-sized rooms are very comfortable and everything is new, fresh, and clean. The hotel has a kid’s room where children can play in a safe environment. An Italian restaurant and a delightful restaurant with a terrace overlooking the water make good dining choices. Universal Studios is fun for both the kids and the parents, and you will find plenty of shopping and fun little restaurants. Do not miss the aquarium at Tempozan, and make sure to check out the whale shark. Please enter your dates on our secure online booking form to make a reservation at Hotel Universal Port.

We loved our stay!”
My friends and I got a great deal from Agoda and stayed at Hotel Universal Port for 2 nights. The superior room was clean and huge (considering most of the accommodations we've tried were compact). Our room had 3 beds, had the lovely Osaka Bay view, and the location was perfect for us since we just had to cross to get to USJ and was near the ferris wheel, aquarium, and convenience stores. The staff were always pleasant and helpful. The minions theme was super cute and very inviting! Highly recommend this hotel!
Thank you very much for staying at our hotel the other day. In addition, thank you for your gratitude and appreciate this time. We will continue to pursue aiming for hotels that will be selected by many customers in the future. We sincerely look forward to your visit.
This is our first time to visit Osaka. Why we chose to stay at Hotel Universal Port, because we are a group of 4 person, and this hotel could accommodate the whole group in one bedroom. The room was spacious for 4 of us. We can walk around the room without trouble. The toiletries was awesome and cute. We are given pajamas during our stay. Our view was the Universal Studio Japan, where our main destination in Osaka. The hotel lobby was full with Minion ornaments, which is cool. Overall, we satisfied to stay at this hotel and would recommend to our friends/families who would travel to Osaka. Thank Hotel Universal Port!
Great location and excellent rooms”
The Hotel Universal Port is located within easy walking distance from the JR Universal Station. The staff at the hotel are friendly and helpful and speak relatively good English. The hotel is situated directly next to Universal Studios where there are a multitude of activities for families and the young at heart. The hotel rooms look either over the water or Universal Studios. The Osaka aquarium and giant ferris wheel are an easy and enjoyable 10 minute ferry ride away. The ferry pickup point is directly out the front of the hotel. We found the hotel to be one of the cleanest and largest rooms that we stayed in whilst in Japan.
Going to the Osaka Aquarium is a real breeze by taking the ferry. This ferry jetty is just 3 mins walk from the hotel lobby. You get to see nice view of the port and to the aquarium is just about 20 mins. We booked a family room and it was really comfortable with the amount of space available. It is the furthest hotel to USJ compared to the others. Still it is not that bad. In fact, it is a less crowded walk to USJ as the guests of other hotels would have to throng through the overhead bridge to USJ. From Hotel Universal Port, it is a matter of crossing the traffic lights.
Excellent hotel for family ”
We had a wonderful stay at Hotel Universal Port for 4 nights. We booked the standard twin room, the room is spacious enough for family of 4, my kids liked the bathroom very much. The Hotel was clean and staff were friendly. Location was great that just 4 min walk to both train station and USJ, shuttle boat to Osaka Aquarium was just next to the back door of the Hotel. I highly recommend this Hotel to families who plan to visit USJ during their stay at Osaka.
This hotel is one of the best! Very near USJ, JR station, Airport limousine bus and Universal city walk where you can shop and dine. Just walking distance, about 5 -10 minjutes depending on the pace.The room/ facilities is very clean. complete toiletries with pajamas, slippers, comb, and even muscle relieving patches. You can also buy tickets for USJ and osaka aquariium and ferry boat from the hotel. The ferry boat terminal is just at the back of the hotel. I consider this hotel quite cheap considering the comfort and the amenities they offer. And lastly, the staff are very helpful, kind and accommodating. They can help you with the directions. Given another opportunity, I will definitely stay again in this hotel. Thank you so much Hotel Unviersal Port. You gave us a wonderful and amazing experience.
All that you could ever ask for”
This hotel is fantastic. The room are large, clean and comfortable. The toilet is uber cool especially the bidet. Don't be alarmed when a button control it all. Everything is in tip-top condition. my room is located at the 12th floor and we got the USJ view. It was amazing, especially when we get to witness the sunset. Internet was super high speed! the universal walk is really beautiful and you should visit the takoyaki museum and have your dinner there Universal port is the offical hotel for USJ, so you are able to purchase it straight at the counter. We also bought our Kaiyukan Aquarium tickets plus a round trip boat ride from the hotel. it cost me around 3200 yen if im not wrong. everything was worth it. It is located really near to the train station. So its really accessible. and if u do not wish to take the train to KIX, u can actually take the airport bus from the bus terminal. it cost me 1500yen but i think its more convinient and hassle free to take the bus. i would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone!
We stayed at the universal port so that we could go to the universal studio, we did go to the universal studio with our pass, hence, we only had 10 minutes in the park before they closed and all of the rides were closed down. we then went to look for turkey legs to eat, they were all sold out. During our short visit to the theme park we only go to see zombies walking around. I guess we were lucky in a sense that we did not get to purchase the fast pass along with the park admission tickets because we got back on the train so late. we were really excited to go to the park but, we had other places that we needed to go to before we could play. we will be coming back to the kayukan and universal studio park in November 2017, we have not yet decided where our lodging would be. I really liked our room in universal port. Akamine and Wong
Big comfortable and clean room”
We stayed in 4 beds room. The room is very nice, spacious, and clean. Amenities provided are very complete. Children and adult pajamas, toothbrushes, high quality soap and shampoo, even the automaticntoilet is perfect. Our kids love the room. The view of the harbor from the room is also amazing. There are 4 units of coin laundry machine along with dryers available in 2nd floor, making it easy to do laundry. The hotel also have ticket counters selling universal and kaiyukan aquarium tickets. It opens at 7am. It's just a short 5 minutes walk to universal studio with our young kids. Ferry to kaiyukan aquarium departed and arrived just at the back of the hotel. The only drawback is it takes a bit of time (30 mins) to get to middle of Osaka (namba, dotombori, etc), but we think the spacious and comfortable room is much more worth it than the smaller rooms we usually get in namba hotel at more expensive price. Will certainly come back again
Thank you very much for staying at our hotel the other day. We will continue to promote better service in the future. We sincerely look forward to your next visit.
The greatest location and the best choice for visi”
The location of Hotel Universal Port (HUP) is very close to USJ and JR station. To stay in this hotel can save your time for transportation. We only took about 20 minutes from here to the Osaka main railway station by JR. There are also three hotels nearby USJ but we think HUP is your best choice because of their large room space, comfortable atmosphere, nice facility, heartwarming staff, cleaning room and so on.
best choice if you are visiing univiersal studio!”
I think this is probably the best choice if universal stuido is your target. It's an easy 5 min walk to the theme park. The bedroom is a little dated, but acceptable. I stayed two nights at Universal Port so that I could have ample time at the theme park and the aquarium (the ferry to the aquarium is just beside the hotel). I spent my other 2 nights in Osaka at Marriott. Overall, I will still choose this hotel if I am viisting the studio again.
This is our 2nd time in Universal Port Hotel, and we are not disappointed! This time the room was slightly smaller and the last, but still a good size room. The amenities are great and the place is very clean. Most of all, the service from the staff are fantastic! Very helpful, very polite, greeted us everywhere we met! The train station is nearby, and accessibility to most parts of Osaka is easy. Great for family with young kids.
If you ever travel to Osaka and are planning to visit USJ, I would highly recommend this hotel to you. The staff are friendly, the rooms are big and clean, the beds are comfortable and the toilets are big and clean. It is just a 4-min walk to the Universal City station and not far from Osaka and Shin-Osaka stations. I would love to come here again if I visit Osaka again. I stayed in the minion room the first night and a standard room the second night. The minion room is so cute and the beds are so pretty! Highly recommended if you are a true minion fan. They allow you to keep the minion-designed hotel cards and the minion bag and toiletries!
This time thank you for your contribution to the review, thank you for your high evaluation. Thank you very much. We appreciate your satisfaction and I am very pleased. We will continue working to become a hotel that will be selected by many people in the future. We sincerely look forward to your visit.

We will continue to devote ourselves to striving to give impression and satisfaction to many customers in the future. We look forward to your continued use.
We stayed 2 nights at this hotel with our 3.5 year old daughter. Staff we met were all very friendly. We originally booked a twin room - we checked in and were happy with the room (space, doctor etc) until we found all kinds of stuff (small pieces of paper, dry rices...and even a pill) on the carpet. We talked to the reception and our situation was immediately been taken care of - they changed us to another room (a bit bigger and with clean floor). We appreciate hotel’s attention to our problem and the solution they found for us. We also took breakfast at the Dinosaur restaurant, it was delicious and satisfying service. Hotel is few minutes away from the USJ’s animated area, near to the port, we had a 1 minute easy access from hotel’s back door to the Captain Line (boat) to Osaka Aquarium. Overall a very pleasant stay.
Best hotel ever ”
That’s how my kids call Hotel Universal Port. There’s nothing that they don’t love about it. We waited a bit long for check-in since we arrived early but it’s all good since the kids were busy watching Despicable Me shown in the lobby. Location is just across Universal Studios. You can even see some rides from the hotel room. Food is also great. We had buffet breakfast. This hotel was a very good choice for my family.
It's right beside Universal Studio Osaka and the rooms are huge. Complete room amenities, staff are friendly, the environment is inviting, train station is just across, luxury hotel in a very cheap price. Would stay in this hotel again even if it is not in the middle of Osaka because money wise, this is really worth it plus the center of Osaka is just a short train trip away.
Incredibly nice hotel but out of the city”
this hotel is definitely the best option if you're going to universal studios in osaka. the price is incredibly reasonable and the rooms are the best in town. everything is clean and well maintained. i also found the rooms to be very spacious and a little more "western like". it's not for the downtown experience but a great addition to your trip if you're planning to spend a week or so in osaka. taking out money is a bit tricky as the lawson doesn't allow international visas. there is a 7-11 about a 10 minute walk from the hotel where you can take out funds. in fact, try to know where all of the 7-11's are in japan wherever you're staying as they are a great place for not only taking out money but also pigging out on snacks. happy travels.
Perfect for a trip to Universal Studios Japan”
Comfortable and spacious room, there was even a small seating area with a table and chair. Great view facing the port. Location was fantastic, just a short 5-10 mins walk to the subway station and theme park. Perhaps the only downside was that there wasn't a convenience store in the hotel. But we could easily walk over to Universal CityWalk, which has convenience stores, cafes and restaurants, so it wasn't much of an issue. Overall, it's a great option if you're planning to go to the theme park.
Good location from Universal Studios Osaka”
The hotel is located near Universal Studios Osaka. It is not as near as the other hotels that are situated at the mall right next to the Universal Studios but a 5 minute walk out of the hotel to the Studios entrance. The hotel is very nice to stay in especially if we get a room with the view of the Universal Studios. They have amenities especially for children too!
