This hotel is located a stone's throw away from Otsu station, which was good because they are connected directly through the south exit.

However was extremely disappointed with the room condition. Peeling wallpaper, dirty carpet with stains, and worse, a spider came crawling on the wall at night. I managed to capture the spider with a ziplock bag and took it to the front desk. No apology or offer to change room.

Will not stay here again.

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, Osaka, KIX and even Nara. I was allocated a semi-double room which was clean, modern and quiet. The room was ensuite with business hotel style shower, bath and heated washlet toilet. This was my second stay. There are drink and ice vending machines for self service. Check in and check out was extremely fast, friendly and efficient. Great hotel and worth paying normal rates. A short walk from the hotel you will find convenience stores and food opportunities. Otsu, on lake Biwa, is a good alternative to staying in Kyoto if you don't mind train travel and are not staying out too late! Jerry & Miki
