Hotel Review ~ Hotel Keihan Universal City

Hotel Keihan Universal City is one of the 6 Official Hotels of Universal Studio Japan (USJ).

We have decided to stay here for a night on the day of our USJ visit. I figured we would be too tired after touring the park and staying at a nearby hotel would be convenient.

I booked Hotel Keihan Universal City via Agoda, I scored a good deal as there was an ongoing promo at time of my booking.

We love staying at Official Theme Park hotels, the nearness and convenience is worth the extra bucks.  Hotel Keihan Universal City is located at the Universal Studio Walk and is literally just a few steps away USJ's main gate.  

(See here our USJ escapade: UNIVERSAL STUDIO JAPAN)

Hotel Keihan is a Hollywood-Cinema themed hotel. 

The check-in counter resembled a movie ticketing box (cool!).

The check-in was fast and easy, we were in-and-out the hotel lobby in 5 minutes (We just dropped our luggage and headed to USJ). 
We left our luggage here.
When we got back from our day frolicking at USJ, we only needed to claim our room keys. Our luggage were already sent up to our room.

Even the hotel's carpet screams movies night ...

We reserved a Standard Quadruple Room. 
They've set up 4 single beds for us, which made the 35sqm room a bit crowded.  It was fine though as we loved the extra bed space after hours walking and running about in the park. 

There was a 37 inches Plasma TV showing Universal Movies.

I love Japanese toilets (so hi-tech!)

For added comfort they also provided us with pajamas and slippers.

Breakfast was at the World World Buffet the following morning.  There were a lot a guests at that time and some had to be re-directed to a makeshift dinning area (us included). 

We had an option to wait for a better sitting area, but since our time is more important,  we were fine at the make-shift area.  They were serving the same menu anyway so that should be fine.

Food was good, but nothing special, although I had repeat servings of their pastries.
I would recommend checking other dining options at the Universal City Walk (just outside the hotel).

If you are looking for a hotel with easy access to USJ, then incude Hotel Keihan in your list:
Perfect location, clean hotel and efficient personnel.
