Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Hotel's Favourite
5.0 of 5 bubbles
The ambiance in the hotel is very warming; yellows and oranges most places in the hotel. The Minions theme is a nice touch. Super close to Universal Studios which is why we chose it. The breakfast buffet was quite, good, too. The room was clean and the separate areas in the bathroom was nice. Overall a good experience at the hotel. Would recommend it to anyone visiting Universal Studios.

I had a great stay at Hotel Universal Port Vita. Yuka Hikinami-san located sold out tix to Universal Studios Japan’s Count Down party for me after I already booked lodging. About 2-3 hours after we spoke on the phone, she gave me the great news. Thanks again!

My buddy and I used Hotel Port Vita as put accomodation when spending 9 day in Japan this month and couldn't have been happier. It was perfectly located for a visit to USJ just a 5 minute walk away and City Walk where there you can find both local and western styles food (stick local!)
It was only 3 train stops to the Osaka Loop Line which served the most popular locations in the Kansai area. This included Osaka itself, Kyoto and Nara. The furthest of which was about an hour away.
It was also only about 3 hours to Tokyo.
The hotel room itself was spacious and very well equipped. The staff were brilliant and spoke very good English (we did try basic communication in Japanese) I wouldn't hesitate to stay again here even if we didn't intend on going to Universal Studios.
Thank you so much to the staff who were exceptional polite throughout our stay

Booked Superior Quad Rooms (4 single beds) for 4 adults - 2 adults and 2 teens. Room was a tight squeeze. Location is less than 3 mins walk from station and 10-15 mins walk from airport limousine bus stop (very convenient). Stayed for 2 nights for our USJ day.. This hotel is perfect location and plenty of eateries at universal walk way. Coin Laundry facilities was available. Lawson just at hotel ground floor and there’s also 7eleven and Lawson at the station. Beds were comfy, separate shower and toilet. But the shower tap handle is a stretch when trying to turn off so the shower area gets very wet because it’s outside the bathtub. Nice bottles complimentary water are provided. Amenities bar in the lobby. Nightwear (pajamas are provided). Would highly recommend staying here especially with family for your USJ day.

We had a short post holiday vacation at Osaka. As usual, I told to my husband that I want to stay at U- Vita because it feels like home to me.

The staff are very fast and accurate in replying via email. I sent my package (pocket wifi rental) at the hotel and they recieve it on my behalf.

The room is literally sparkly clean. Spacious. The amenities are complete. One of the things I enjoyed is their coin laundry facility. What we do is to bring few clothes and had laundry in between our stay. Very convenient for us so we have light luggages. Another thing is the door going to convenience store if we need to buy something.

Staff are courteus and friendly. The process of checking-in and out are very easy and convenient.

We will definitely go back here!

Good Job U-Vita and Thank you for taking care of us during our stay.

A lovely hotel just 5 mins walk to USJ and 2 mins walk to train station!
Room for two adults and two children was clean. Love the departed toilet and bathroom which makes it safer for kids to bath in without having to worry the floor is slippery. There is self service washer and dryer available!
Love the automated flashing system in the toilet too.

Excellent location and is walking distance to universal walk and USJ. Handy after a long day exploring USJ. Reception staff were warm, welcoming and friendly. We arrive earlier than check in time and our room was ready already. The minion keychains they gave us a at check in was also a lovely touch.

We stayed in a quad room with 4 single beds and was spacious and clean. Pillows were a bit hard and the mattress sagged a bit. The public areas are impeccable, bright and cheery and although our room was decked out in the same yellow/orange theme, from our observation, the room is starting to show its age.

We only stayed overnight so didn’t get to try the other amenities. Check out was easy and fast and they offered lockers for guest use after check out.

The location of the hotel is 5-10min walk depending on how leisurely you walk lol Since we went to USJ during the summer, it gets pretty hot during the midday. We went to USJ around 9am, back to hotel after we ate lunch to rest, and then back to the park around 4pm and stayed until closing. This is pretty much what worked for us since we don't need to take the subway going back to the hotel after a long tiring day.

Upon checking in at the hotel, the staff are very helpful. We purchased our ticket at the reception and they gave us tips on how to get a pass at the nintendo world. The room is spacious. Bathroom and toilet are clean. But what I loved the most is their breakfast! There's a lot of choices and even good options for kids.

However, since the hotel is not at the center of the city, there's only a few choices of restaurants. Just the ones at the citywalk. Then there's only one convenience store, luckily its on the first level of our hotel but the line can get pretty long.

We would definitely stay here again if we visit USJ again. Maybe a shop of the park's souvenir would make this hotel even more fun!

Room was clean,pleasant and brightly themed. Bathroom was big with comfortable bathtub, reaches hot water temp quickly.
We had a 3 night stay here with breakfast of wide selection. Breakfast experience could be better as even though there are signs stating not to takeaway food/drinks for obvious reasons, I was requested to pour away plain water that I refilled my bottle with.

The Hotel is really for kids, from the decorations to providing pajamas, toothbrush kits, stool for kids for the toilet, peep hole.

Room size is good, enough space to move and enough space for your things.

The only thing we would like to request from the hotel is a water dispenser, if that is possible. Since we are only given limited water bottles per day.

Hi! Sorry for the late reply! We actually got it 5 days we decided we are going to USJ. The only problem (which might not be a big deal for you) is that we didn’t have many options for themed rooms. We wanted to get the Minion room and that was gone. One thing, April is Definitely HIGH SEASON in japan… I went during low season so maybe my experience doesn’t help you much. Have fun!! You are going to love it!!! K

Yes you. They will post notification if peak and has limited tickets. So far when we stay at universal port vita and universal port hotel, I am able to buy 4 entrance tickets. By the way selling of tickets at hotel is I think till 7pm or 8pm. So you might plan to buy earlier like if you're checking in by 3pm or buy earlier 7am befor you go to the park.
