Good value for money
Location was great. Close to the station, a convenience store and the USJ, and the Aquarium is just a few mins by car. We came by car and I called a day before to confirm the parking- not free, about 10,000+ for 24 hrs but since we stayed at the hotel, we only paid 2,500 at the hotel reception. The bed was not bad, my husband actually enjoyed his sleep. The hotel was pretty simple, if you just need a place to sleep at, a little run down, but it was all clean. The ambience was also nice for my 3 yr old. The staff spoke at the reception spoke English. Cannot comment on the food because we opted to have brunch at eggs n things and dinner at another hotel.

Exceptional 10.0
Inconsistent bathroom water temperature
Location was great within the universal city and just 3 min walk to the park. Check in is on level 3 directly accessed from the JR exit. Room was clean and amenities provided. However the bathroom water temperature is not consistent and sometimes there is no hot water. This was a big con as we went in December and it's cold.

Close stay to USJ
Great location right in city walk (3 min to universal studios and 3 minutes off of the train). Can also walk 5 min down to pier and take ferry to the fantastic aquarium (can purchase ferry/aquarium tickets in lobby of hotel). Only 10 min walk to get bus that goes from universal studio over to the airport (stops at both terminal 1 and terminal 2

Awesome Stay
We had a good stay in this hotel and the services were good. They actually assist to put our luggage bags in our rooms although we could not check-in earlier. The bed was comfortable and the services were awesome.
Fiona, my3 night family trip
Poor 2.0
Poor service for the hotel
First night during check in, we were short changed with 1 day's worth of breakfast voucher. We stayed 4 nights, only given breakfast for 3 nights. Bottled water was also not given, only provided on last day. Lastly, room clean up was not completed on the third night. Fresh towels were provided, but beds were not made, neither was toothbrushes, etc given
