Pretty nice hotel, we had a view of Universal Studios from our room. Walking to USJ was just a few minutes, it's literally across the road from City Walk. Hotel is clean and staff is friendly. The laundry service was not fun. They have self serve laundry (¥300 for washer, ¥200 for 30 min on the dryer), with dryers that... More

We stayed at the Hotel Universal Port for 4 nights with other non-Japanese speakers.... it was recommended to us someone from the area. This hotel is a short walk to USJ, to JR Universal City station and to City Walk (shopping and restaurants). We took a cab from the airport because our flight arrived too late to catch the bus....

We booked this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews - and we're glad we did. In one word, Hotel Universal Port is CONVENIENT! You can walk out the hotel's waterfront door to hop on the Captain Line ferry boat for Legoland, the Ferris Wheel and the aquarium. Walk out the main entrance to get to the JR line (train), Universal... More

Clean, modern, and only one train stop from the "Osaka Loop" train route. Staff were very helpful and very cheerful. On site shopping, snack shop, cafe, coin laundry, and buffet meals available. During our stay the large aquarium and lobby was set up with a minions scene, very fun to see! We booked an early morning taxi, and the manager... More

This is a fantastic hotel that is part of the Universal City area right next to Universal Studios. The hotel is very comfortable and has a range of restaurant options, and a Universal Studios gift shop. Loved the minions theme! A great way to keep the excitement from Universal Studios going. Also easy access to a range of other restaurants... More
