Train station is directly next to the hotel. Very convenient and handy location. Room is clean and bed is comfortable. Reception staff are very helpful and friendly. Breakfast buffet choice has both Japanese and Western.

Stayed: April 2017

The hotel is on the south side of the JR Otsu train station on the 2nd floor. It is about a mile up hill from the lake. Ishiyamadera requires changing train lines as does going into most sites in Kyoto. We had to be in Otsu for work but switched to a far easier location in Kyoto afterwards. The hotel is very basic. Rooms are terribly small. The breakfast is just okay and everything about the hotel is very tired and old. The staff was wonderful, speaks English and are very helpful. Would I stay again? Maybe if I had to be near the Otsu train station.

Spent here 5 nights when visiting Kyoto. It is more affordable solution than staying in Kyoto but still quite pricey. Breakfast is not included in the rate. Complimentary water was provided every day. The room was ok and wifi worked well. The train station is right next to the hotel and therefore some noice is to be expected. When arriving by train, you enter the hotel by lift which is located on the left hand side exit from the station and need to call station personnel from the intercom on tourniquet to be let through with your JR pass.

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 standard business hotel room.

The internet was very good in the Tetora, better than most hotels I've stayed in Japan.

Breakfast was not included, which overall made the hotel not as reasonable as others that I stayed in around Kyoto.

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...
