This hotel is situated near a lake. My room had a fantastic view over the lake. The rooms were very big. Breakfast and dinner buffet was of good quality.the hotel had a shuttle bus to transfer people to the train station.

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...

Fantastic customer service! Had a personal employee taking care of us due to some changes made to the hotel stay. Given free vouchers to compensate for the booking error for taxis and meals. Outstanding views and brilliant staff! Will stay here again definitely!

Having enjoyed staying in hotels in other parts of Japan we were very disappointed with this hotel for following reasons. 1) very run down with stains on carpet and no working air conditioner. 2) very misleading restaurants including New York steak and seafood that serves no sign of steak. 3) food quality in general all poor and very over priced....

We stayed here for a few nights for the Lake Biwa marathon. This was the hotel selected by the organisers so we didn't do much research on other options in the area. The hotel had fabulous views of the Lake and large rooms with a sitting area to appreciate the view. It was also nice and quiet to get a... More

Just finished a 4 night stay here and couldn't really fault anything. The hotel sticks up like a beacon on Lake Biwa so you can't miss it. This gives you great views from the rooms and the restaurants. The room was large and comfortable and clean. The staff are very helpful, English is a bit hit and miss but hey,... More

Me and my wife stayed in 34 floor apartment and the views from there are breathtaking! Room size is very good (for Japan), it was very clean and well equipped. Station is about 20 minute walk, but there is a free bus going to and from the station every 30 minutes, just be sure to get the schedule from the... More

One good thing is the price, ralatively cheaper than hotel in Kyoto. But room is not so clean, service is not good, location is far from nearest station. In total my staying experience was not good.

Its about 12-15 min. from Kyoto by train, There are shuttle bus from Otsu station every half hour until 9PM. Hotel got clean room and polite staff, free wifi, only tea (Green & red Tea), no coffee in room. Room is fair size, but compare with the 20-30% premium they charge for rooms in down town Kyoto, I think its... More
