Large chain hotel with mainly Chinese guests. Rooms are a little basic yet spotless and comfortable. Short shuttle bus ride to Otsu station and 10 minute train journey into Kyoto. Very good restaurant in the hotel. Staff very helpful.

We choose this hotel as the rooms were spacious and had fantastic views of Lake Biwa. Transport to Kyoto and more locally to Otsu - Enryaky-ji on Mt Hiei (UNESCO World cultural Asset) was fairly easy to negotiate, even with 2 small children. The buffet breakfast was very good but pricey at the present exchange rate (2200 yen for adults) and the best value restaurant in the hotel for dinner is the coffee shop. We found a quirky, but good "German" restaurant for dinner about a 5-10 minute walk along the lake from the hotel. The luggage service from Kyoto Station to the hotel was very useful. If you miss the hotel shuttle to or from Otsu train station, it will take you about 40 minutes to walk the distance, and most of it will be along the pleasant lakeside promenade.

My girlfriend and I tried to book something in Kyoto but for the amount of time we were spending (six nights of a two-week trip) and the amount of luggage we had to haul around, night-to-night is Kyoto wasn't an option. We found the Otsu Prince Hotel and booked there.
The room was spacious and the view was beautiful but we were happy to go back to Tokyo. Everything seemed to be pretty expensive inside the hotel. There wasn't really anything to do in Otsu (compared to Kyoto), and we couldn't really find anywhere to eat within a reasonable walk. The hotel itself didn't really feel comforting and seemed sterile.
It may be a great place for business but wasn't good for a young couple interested in meeting people and having a couple low-key nights by our hotel.

Rooms are quite spacious, and you can enjoy the breathtaking view of Biwako! There is also a convenient store on the ground floor of the hotel, so you can buy souvenirs and a wide selection of great Japanese sweets there.

it’s a nice hotel beside lake biwa.
you can see the best view from your room
and at night, maybe you can have the best photograph with city view from your room.

there’s a shop in this hotel. as long as i know, there’s not much different price (mostly same price) to buy a products at japan… so, i think it’s ok to buy something at hotel too :)

you just need to walk about 10 minutes to go to malls/supermarket 24 hours near.
for malls, there’s parco and seibu.
at parco there’s 100yen shop too :)

you can get resort view from this hotel and city life near this hotel. :)
