We stayed here for 3 nights in August during our 6 night Kyoto visit. We had actually booked a house right downtown Kyoto but due to some itinerary change, were only able to stay there for the latter 3 days. So we needed to find a place in the Kyoto area for the first 3 nights until our rented house... More

We were unable to find a decent hotel for 2 day/nights stay in Kyoto, so, we decided to stay in Otsu princes hotel. We drove from Chiba to Hakone with a rented Prius all the way, so it wasn't a problem to get the hotel before it's too dark. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room we booked... More

This isn't the cheapest hotel you're going to find, but we felt the price represented very good value. As you can see in the pictures this is a very large hotel, certainly the largest in the area and so you won't have any difficulty finding it. The reception staff are very helpful and speak English well. The pool looked excellent,... More

The views from the lake are fantastic absolutely. Rooms are more spacious than average Japanese hotels. But that's all about it. The furniture are old and the whole facility is tired. The bicycle rental fees are good for hourly use insane for daily rides. The lobby and front desk are bare and resemble a bubble economy era cheap business hotel.... More

Loved my stay at this hotel. The room was pretty big with a really awesome view of Lake Biwa. It's also pretty convenient as the supermarket is about 5 to 10 mins walk away. An alternative would be to rent a bicycle from the reception and cycle out.

This big lakeside hotel which is located a short distance from the city center was basically empty in these waning days (26 - 28) of February which gave it an eery feeling. However, it is a good (albeit not new) hotel with VERY friendly staff and therefore, recommendable. Our room had a great view of Lake Biwa. The Japanese style... More

I decided to travel to Biwako just a day before. The best hotel I could find was Otsu Prince. All rooms are lake facing and were not expensive either. Stay was excellent, variety of restaurants they had was an added attraction. I recommend it!
