Stayed for just the one night at the Tetora. Handy hotel for Otsu station, with little else in the immediate vicinity. I believe I was allocated a disability room, as it was huge and seemed to catered for wheelchairs. The room had a small living area with a sofa and coffee table. It was a pleasant change from the cramped... More

Interesting option when visiting Kyoto during High Season due to its good train connection to Kyoto Station (2 stations away). Staff was very friendly and helpfull. Otsu itself unfortunately doesn't has much to offer...

Accidentally booked this hotel for 5 nights thinking it was close to Kyoyo city centre. Hotel was clean, quiet with helpful & friendly staff although we knew only 2 Japanese words (Konichiwa & Arikato). Hotel was next to Otsu Station and it was cheap going to Kyoto city everyday. Also, try dinner in the quaint Japanese restaurants nearby (with sake,... More

This hotel is located directly next to Otsu station, which is a 10 minute train ride to Kyoto main station, with trains leaving every 10 minutes or so. So, a very easy commute to Kyoto, and you save quite some money by not staying in downtown Kyoto. The hotel is modern and clean, the twin room was spacious.

The theb-otsu is a newish business style hotel from ishinhotels of Japan. I stayed [29/04/2006] in the hotel paying a single room promotion rate of JPY5,500 per night. I did not take the breakfast which is usually very good in this type of hotel. The hotel is a very short walked from Otsu JR station giving easy access to Kyoto,... More
