Stayed here for 2 night with my wife and 2 kids (5 and 1 year old). Hotel staff very friendly and helpful. 2 minute walk to the subway and 5 minute walk to Universal Studios.
Hotel room was very clean, breakfast had a good selection. Lots of shops and restaurants within 5 minutes walk in an area called Universal City Walk.
Definitely stay here if I come back to Universal Studious.
The hotel is situated right next to the Universal City train station. The City Walk is right outside the front door, and Universal Studios Japan is about a 2-min walk away. Unfortunately, there is another Hotel Keihan across the way. It's not that far away, but it can be confusing.

Located 1 minutes walk to the Universal Studios Japan. 10 minutes to JR Osaka station/heart of Osaka City. Hotel Nikko …More
my family, husband and daughter had a pleasant stay...hotel staff are courteous and helpful, hotel is a very convenient walking distance (barely 5 minutes) to the entrance of Universal Studios...room is clean and comfy and very much worth the price (compare to where we stayed in Tokyo)
The guesthouse was very modern and clean. It was also fairly convenient to Bentencho station, as long as it is not in the heat of summer, as it is about a 10 - 15 minute walk.
The check-in was strange. We had to check our email when we arrived to see the codes to get into the hotel and get our keys. Thank goodness we actually had a pocket wi-fi with us! There were guests who did not have email access and arrived very late at the hotel. They had no idea how to get in, so they buzzed all of the rooms at 2am, trying to get in. I was awakened in the night twice by guests who couldn`t get in. Had the owner of the guesthouse given people the information a few days before, it would have been so much better. It shouldn`t be assumed that guests have access to email at all times.
There is only one room to wash your face, do your hair/make-up, and take a bath. With 4 rooms, it is possible that you are sharing this one bathroom with up to 16 guests. There were no mirrors in the guestrooms, so we had to wait a long time to access a sink or mirror, as there were guests who were in the bathroom for up to 30 min at a time. It wasn`t convenient at all. Even when I just wanted to brush my teeth or wash my hands, it seemed that the bathroom was being used.
This area draws both domestic and international travelers with its modern attractions and Oceanside scenery. Universal Studios Japan is located here, as is the Kaiyukan Aquarium, which houses 580 species of sea life, including two whale sharks. Both families and couples come to see the views from a 112 meter high ferris wheel and the 55th floor observatory of the World Trade Center Cosmo Tower.
