Our room in the Hikone Castle Hotel was pleasant, similar in size to many in Japan, with all comforts we needed, without being inspiring. However, the magnificent view of Hikone Castle from our window made up completely. So beautiful. The hotel is in an excellent position for enjoyment of Hikone, as it is close to the castle, beautiful Genkyuen Gardens,... More

The rooms are smelly and small. The view is great. We left early and lost our last night's payment - but it was worth it for a good night sleep. The area is beautiful - but unless you speak Japanese - skip it for more than a day trip. Hotel staff couldn't - or wouldn't help us book anything!

The staff were superbly accommodating (even when we arrived very late, after midnight due to flight delays), the rooms were lovely and the restaurant food and service were excellent. The view from our room was tremendous -- clear vista of Hikone... More

Stay in hotel 4 or 5 times now. Its a pleasant hotel little basic , dated and i would say caters for the Japanese business man and local traveller who come to see Hikone Castle. Also weekend i think it caters for the wedding ceremony and parties. In last 2 year they have only installed free LAN connection for internet... More
