We were looking for a "value hotel" and got a great deal from a travel site.. booked this hotel at more than HALF THE PRICE of similar hotels in Namba and nearby Universal Studios Japan. At this price, we were not expecting too much (just the basics and adequate comfort ). We were blown away as this hotel exceeded all our expectations ! It's located very near Sakurajima Station. Travelling from Kansai Airport to the hotel is a breeze, with just 1 quick transfer . The stations have elevators so its very convenient. You can easily wheel your luggage to and from the station to the hotel. Location is also within walking distance to USJ and a Ferry Service which will take you to the Osaka Aquarium. As mentioned, its readily accessible by Train. (as low as 190 yen or $1.70 one way fare to Namba/Dotonburi area) After a tiring day from walking all around Osaka, we would stop by one of the 2 nearby convenience stores (Lawson and 7-11) to grab some midnight snacks (or for breakfast). Or, you may just head straight to the hotel and get snacks from it's 3 vending machines. They even have an ice cube dispenser with cups. Grab some free amenities at the lobby on your way up..must haves are the Sakura Bath Powders for a hot dip in our room's bath tub to sooth our aching feet and muscles. Water Closet is very high tech and one the i would only expect from a 5 star hotel (in fact the 5 star hotels I've been to don't have this) La'gent really made us feel its our home away from home.…
Stayed 3 nights in 6 bed jungle theme room. Huge room by Japanese standards, fantastic quality and ammenities. Beds very firm as usual, service first class, 7/11 next door. USJ short walk away (800m). Osaka aquarium ferry about same distance. Highly recommended for large families
Yes this hotel is a bit far from CBD, but is easily accessible via train. A lot of variety for the breakfast buffet, and the price tag of 1000yen is worth the money. Around half an hour of train you can reach Osaka CBD. This hotel is suitable for anyone including family, it is very clean and the toilet is well equipped with technology. Lots of button to press and they even have a air purifier. The hotel has 2 vending machine near the lobby but I think it is best to get anything from 7-11 next door as it is much cheaper. If you survey the area, you will find out this is the newest hotel in USJ area and the cheapest (if you can book early)
We stayed here for two nights to visit the aquarium and USJ. The rooms are clean and functional with a nearby 7-11 for food and drinks. The Sakurajima train station is 2 mins walk away and only one stop from USJ. Definitely quieter than staying at the hotels at universal city which seemed to be very crowded. Special appreciations to the hotel staffs who found my wallet(which was left behind in the room) and the manager went out of his way to deliver it to my hotel in Kyoto!!). His hospitality was the highlight of my experience of Japanese cultures! 🙏🏻 👍🏻
The hotel is a good location for USJ. It’s about a 10-15 minute walk to the park entrance. The hotel is small but super clean and well run. There are little freebies in the lobby like hair ties and bath salts which is nice. The rooms were typical small Japanese hotel rooms which some westerners will find cramped but nice with a spotless bathroom and comfy pajamas. The breakfast was extremely inconvenient. My party was already getting up early to go to Universal, but we couldn’t have breakfast because it was that much earlier. I don’t think I’d enjoy a longer stay here especially with the kids running around.
