Easy to get there from KIX Airport. The beds were hard for Europeans. Breakfast ok. Universal Studios is a great amusement park but buy Express Pass to avoid spending a lot of time in the lines. We had only one day and it was worth the money.

For the same price we paid to stay here, I much rather have stayed at the Ritz Carlton. The only reason we chose to stay here is because of the location right next to the park and all the hotels in this area were fully booked that weekend. It's very convenient, but the service and quality are extremely poor. The... More

It was so overcrowded that we didn't enjoy any ride. Maybe due to school vacation, the crowd, but we were not ready to wait for 3and more hours for few minutes of ride. However we weren't disappointed as we enjoy seeing whole parc
