I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since I updated this blog. I’ve been so busy and have been to a lot of places that I hardly found the time to sit down and write. Anyway, I left for Osaka on November 23 with the whole family, including my parents and my sister.
We’ve been to Japan many times, but this is the first time that we are visiting Osaka (except for my Mom and husband). I was able to book us an adjoining room at Hotel Keihan Universal City, a hotel very near Universal Studios.
The hotel is situated within the vicinity of the Universal Studios and it’s just about a 6-minute walk. There is a shopping mall, specialty stores, convenient stores and many restaurants around the hotel. Several hotels are also within the area, but I chose Hotel Keihan because their rates are more affordable. There are actually two Hotel Keihans. The other one is Hotel Keihan Universal Tower. I believe the rates are more pricey there.
The check in counter.
If you want to skip the ticket lines at Universal Studios, you can purchase your tickets from this booth.
They also have a buffet restaurant on the 3rd floor of the hotel, right beside the check in counter.
Aside from the vending machine room in the lobby, you can also find one at every floor.
We stayed at the 14th floor and this is the fire escape.
Each floor also has this screen, so you’ll know where the other amenities of the hotel are located, i. e. the laundry room, smoking area, restaurant, etc. There is also a different theme for each floor. On the 14th floor, the theme is Road Runner.
As I mentioned earlier, we got an adjoining room and this is how it looked like.
They also have a baggage express service where you can have your luggage shipped to your next destination. We availed of this service when we checked out because we took the bullet train going to Tokyo. We sent 13 baggages and we paid for ¥17,000. Fair enough considering the convenience of travelling with a big group with two kids and a visually impaired husband.
Each exit also has an alcohol dispenser. This, for me, is a big plus.
Overall, we had a very nice and comfortable stay at the hotel. If you are looking for a great place to stay in Osaka for your family, this is highly recommended.
