Gorgeous room, poor location

The room itself, the shuttle service, Lake Biwa
It was a very relaxing stay at Otsu for us however we found a few key issues with the hotel. The bars, restaurants & pool had very limited hours considering there was not a lot to do in the Otsu area. We walked into "town" to visit a bar after midnight which was also closed and there were only a few non hotel restaurants which were also a 15 minute walk away. The shuttle bus service was great however the last bus was at 9pm from Otsu station which means you have to rush back from Kyoto on the train to be able to make the bus. The room was fantastic, really big with a comfy bed & lounge area. Plus the view of Lake Biwa was outstanding. Perhaps a great place for families to stay - there were a lot of kids running around making noise. We would recommend just staying in Kyoto itself unless you specifically want to "get away" or even just Osaka and catch the Shinkansen which is only 15 minutes.

Good hotel

Big and comfortable rooms, facilities, convenient for groups
It's a huge hotel at the bay, amazing view and good facilities for travellers in group. I would prefer a small and more cozy hotel, but all the hotels in city was fully booked and I didn't have much options. It's a big hotel, hence the breakfast room was always full and a long waiting at the queue for a table. It's not a walking distance from the train/ metro station, but they offer a shuttle bus every half an hour.

Western in japan

Size of rooms, view
The size of rooms are western, that was nice. Itnot really diffocult to get there while visiting Kobe. Shuttle service and 8 minute train into Kobe is very efficient. And Kobe is not a city to stay at night, so the 9pm last shuttle worked well for us. Go early walk like crazy many great temples and sleep early. Great view of lake Biwa. We did the cruise, its ok, but not superb.

Big rooms, Shuttle Service to Train station, Fast Internet
The hotel is far from the central area. The view of the lake from the bedroom would have been better if the windows were cleaned. Many dead buds on the windows. Internet speed was great.

Great hotel with lake view

Big room, friendly staff and great view
Althought the hotel is a little far off from the city but there is free buses run by the hotel to Otsu Station making the total travel time to central Kyoto only about 15-20 minutes. Love the lake view and enjoy my big room!
