This hotel concept is Minion from Dispicable Me, so if you guys love minion, you probably want to stay in this hotel. The location only 5 min walk to Universal Studio Japan. This hotel is very modern, clean, and the bathroom also larger than the avarage. The breakfast was yummy, lots of japanese food and they serve banana juice.

Great for families! Booked a deluxe room.. it had 4beds.. the beds were so comfy.. the toiletries given were so cute! They even gave us special kids toiletries! Bought universal studios tickets from the special ticket counter inside the hotel which saved us a lot of time instead of having to line up.. tried the buffet breakfast at Rico Rico.....

We stayed here for 3D2N. Location-wise it's not as close as some of the other hotels to USJ, you have to cross a street. But it's still very very near if you want to run to USJ. Check in was super smooth. They have a counter where you can book tickets to go to USJ/Express Pass, the Kaiyukan etc. Rooms...

The laundry service was not fun. They have self serve laundry (¥300 for washer, ¥200 for 30 min on the dryer), with dryers that...

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...
