I stayed at this hotel to visit Kyoto in the highest Cherry Blossom season (mid April) because all of my favorite hotels in Kyoto had already been fully booked even in November !! This Otsu Prince hotel has several good points to stay especially in the highest season. No.1: It is very convenient that they have a concierge in Kyoto... More

My first night in Japan, and was very happy with the size of the room, had difficulty with the air condition but otherwise the room was fine. Managed to find out how to override the japanese version of CNN and BBC news. There is a shuttle bus running on the hour to the train station and the hotel is within... More

Basic room but clean and tidy and had seperate toilet bathroom. Good views as very tall building. Breakfast was good. All seemed to have the same so not much variety, and always only slightly warm. If you want a hot breakfast get an omelet freshly cooked. In the morning going down was a problem, as we were only on floor... More

We were lucky enough to get a corner room with a view of the lake and the city behind. It was beautiful just a shame we didn't get better weather to improve he visibility. Highly recommend level 17 corner room purely for the views! The hotel room was spacious and it was good having a separate shower and toilet when... More

We stayed in this hotel because all hotels in Kyoto were fully booked. Our room was large and had a terrific view across the lake. If the weather had been nicer, we could have walked along the lake under the cherry blossoms. The bathroom was Japanese style with separate cubicles for the toilet and the deep bathtub. The shower was... More

Big comfy rooms, breathtaking view at BIWA lake, very good alternative for visiting Kyoto and the area. Its about 10-15 min. from Kyoto station. There are shuttle bus from Otsu station every half hour until 9PM. The only disadvantages was that the first shuttle bus was at 8.15 and not big enough to transport all the people, so couple of...

It is like a cross between Toyoko Inn and a luxury hotel. It has many branches, service is impeccable and convenient. The place is huge! It has a huge lobby for a cafe, shops, wedding, piano recital and the front desk. There is a bell boy to help with our heavy luggage. Whew! They also provide luggage transport service from... More

10min from Kyoto station. Get off at Otsu, there are regular trains. The hotel's shuttle bus runs every full and half hour until 9 p.m. If you arrive at Otsu, take the north exit, cross the street and walk 150m - the bus stop is in front of a parking lot. The hotel also has a luggage dropoff at Kyoto... More

This hotel has already seen its best days. The guest rooms are quite spacious but the carpets are all terribly dirty. The furniture looks worn down. The same problem can be seen in the hotel's restaurants: bad ambience and old furniture. The ceilings look quite stained at some points. The door to the kitchen in the New York restaurant ist...
