Biwako Hanakaido

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 24, 2012

From the pick up at the Ogoto train station to the time you check out your stay at Hanakaido Onsen will be a great experience.

The staff are courteous and very efficient. The several courses dinner is more than adequate.

Rooms are very clean and comfortable and all with a view of Lake Biwa, the largest lake in Japan.

The large onsen bath is nice and relaxing. The natural hot spa waters will soak away your aches and warm you on a cold night.

Breakfast is traditional Japanese. If you're not a fan of raw eggs they'll fry one for you. Now, if they just offered free coffee with breakfast it would be even better. Coffee is available at the lobby cafe but don't be shocked at the 600 yen per cup (no free refills) price.

I was with Super Value Tour group and we stayed at this hotel for 1 night. I really enjoyed their welcome drink and red bean bun when we first checked in. The staffs are so nice and they always smile... ;-)

The room is very clean and well organized. Everyone has to remove the shoes and put on their slippers to walk around the hotel. There were not a lot of guests during our stay, so I felt like we were having the hotel to ourselves.

The hot spring bath was so nice and I really enjoyed it for the first time. It was so amazing that the shower place is so neat with all the shampoos and body gels for both Westerner and Japanese.

The hotel also has the outdoor hot spring which is a little cooler than the indoor one. I used the outdoor to cool down after about 10 mins soaking inside. This gives a very good feeling on the body and relaxes all my muscles.
