We had a fabulous 2-day stay in this spa hotel. The staff were wonderful - warm, helpful, caring. The facilities are amazing! The rooms are gracious and large for a Japanese hotel. (We stayed in 5 other hotels in Japan this trip, and these rooms -- small by US standards -- were among the largest and most gracious.) The appointments... More

Very personal service. Superb location with a great beautiful view of Hikone castle from the 2nd floor and from the public bath. Very nice ambiance. Just very nice service oriented people. The breakfast is very good.

Lovely 5 story hotel located across the street from the moat of Hikone castle. Rooms facing the castle have a great view of the castle and moat walls. (Please request a room facing the castle on the 4th or 5th floor.) The staff is helpful; they speak little English but enough for you to get by. Nice well equipped rooms... More

Hikone is a small town and the hotel is right across from the famous castle. Views are particularly dramatic on the second floor lounge, particularly at night. Breakfast is well done with plenty of fish recipes. The room is a bit small, comparable to European hotels. Clean with std features, not luxurious but not Spartan either. Missed the spa experience...

I've always loved this little hotel at the base of the Shogun's castle in Hikone Japan . Recently they did a great deal of remodeling and upgrading to the hotel. The entrance, lobby , lobby restaurant have all been completely redone. Very welcoming and fitting of the Castle next door. Room upgrades include the refresh of the decor and the... More

Fabulous. The breakfast was also excellent. Best salad greens I had in Japan; ditto local the ume-shiso dressing. Had the Japanese breakfast, but there were breads etc for... More

改装されて、とても素敵なホテルです。 A newly refurbished hotel and spa, some of whose rooms command awe-inspiring Hikone Castle. Their restaurant serves amazingly lip-smacking dishes. They might not the most luxurious but you can experience authentic local foods. Their massage service is also highly recommended. The technique is nothing but professional. Good to stay in Hikone, a very average Japanese city, for a couple... More
