Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My buddy and I used Hotel Port Vita as put accomodation when spending 9 day in Japan this month and couldn't have been happier. It was perfectly located for a visit to USJ just a 5 minute walk away and City Walk where there you can find both local and western styles food (stick local!) It was only 3 train stops to the Osaka Loop Line which served the most popular locations in the Kansai area. This included Osaka itself, Kyoto and Nara. The furthest of which was about an hour away. It was also only about 3 hours to Tokyo. The hotel room itself was spacious and very well equipped. The staff were brilliant and spoke very good English (we did try basic communication in Japanese) I wouldn't hesitate to stay again here even if we didn't intend on going to Universal Studios. Thank you so much to the staff who were exceptional polite throughout our stay

We had a short post holiday vacation at Osaka. As usual, I told to my husband that I want to stay at U- Vita because it feels like home to me. The staff are very fast and accurate in replying via email. I sent my package (pocket wifi rental) at the hotel and they recieve it on my behalf. The room is literally sparkly clean. Spacious. The amenities are complete. One of the things I enjoyed is their coin laundry facility. What we do is to bring few clothes and had laundry in between our stay. Very convenient for us so we have light luggages. Another thing is the door going to convenience store if we need to buy something. Staff are courteus and friendly. The process of checking-in and out are very easy and convenient. We will definitely go back here! Good Job U-Vita and Thank you for taking care of us during our stay.

The room is very nice but the pillow is hard. Nice bed, bath. Staff is not very good speaking in English but they try. Hotel is near city walk where you can get shopping and food as well. Hotel offers transport to airport for a fee.

I had a great stay at Hotel Universal Port Vita. Yuka Hikinami-san located sold out tix to Universal Studios Japan’s Count Down party for me after I already booked lodging. About 2-3 hours after we spoke on the phone, she gave me the great news. Thanks again!

/k=Located immediately adjacent to the Universal Sta, this hotel is also one block from the Universal Studios Park. The room layout is excellent especially the bathroom. The access to the rail also meant superb access to the sites of central Osaka including Dontonburi. They even delivered our bags to our room. Once again, the service is excellent.

The hotel is new, minion themed. It is conveniently located near USJ & universal city walk. The room is quite spacious and the bath & toilet area is separate. Breakfast spread was fantastic, there’s even an area for kids to get their food. There is a convenience store located at level 1. My family & I enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended!

This is the first time we visited the Hotel Universal Port Vita and yet I am sure it wouldn’t be the last time! We will certainly come back if we are going to the Universal Studio in Osaka again. The location of the hotel is perfect. It took you less than 5 minutes to walk to the Park and both the JR station. It’s very suitable for friends or family gatherings here. Port Vita is not like those luxurious types of hotels, instead, you will find it quite cozy and warm. My kid just loves the Minions there. Particular thanks to Asami who has been really thoughtful and helpful throughout our stay. All in all, I strongly recommend this hotel to everyone especially those with kids!
