This hotel is great for families with kids. Although it may be about 25 mins drive to Kyoto main town, this hotel more than makes up for it with its level of service and the spaciousness of its room, which is seldom seen in hotels for the budget conscious travelers to Japan

When you enter this hotel it is quite clear that the Main business of this hotel is to organize weedings. Nevertheless it is a very good hotel. I had a really large room (not only large for Japan but also large compared to european standards), 2 beds, desk, couch.... more than I would have expected. Unfortunatelly I didn't have Lake...

We stayed there only only one night and the hotel was fully satisfactory. The staff were agreeable. The price was reasonalbe. The court yard was beautiful. The breakfast was pretty good. And our room had a nice view of Lake Biwa. We love the hotel and if we return to Otsu, we definitely stay there again.

This hotel has spacious rooms, spa, and the ambiance. Nice retreat from busy areas, but the transportation is a bit awkward as you will have to wait for the shuttle bus of the hotel to go out and come back as there is no public transportation nearby. It is off Kyoto City. The only thing I did not like about... More
