Lakeside annex is not part of the 2 round buildings which are the main Prince Hotel area, have to walk pass Ryuguden to get there, or in the evening there are courtesy buses to transfer you between them to enjoy the onsens.
The annex also do not open year round, but is the cheapest amongst Prince properties in Hakone when it does. Steps from the lakeside but not as close and gardens not as well landscaped as the main buildings. Shuttle bus back to Odawara leaves from main building, so will definitely get a chance to be there. View of Mt Fuji's snowcap on a clear day as well.
Would not mind staying here again. View of Lake Ashi early morning was eerily beautiful
