Fabulous stay ”

Took my boyfriend here for a mini vacation (we live in Wakayama) and we had an amazing time! The rooms are so affordable but all have a stunning view of the lake and mountains. The room was clean and large. The staff at the front desk spoke English well and helped me check in even though my boyfriend spoke Japanese. Parking is included with room price. Round 1 is directly next to the hotel as well as a little park down below. I would stay here again and again!

Spacious room with hotspring”

Three of us stayed in a lumine large room and it was spacious. Overlooking the view of Biwa lake, it was beautiful sunset on the night we arrive and snowing next morning. Next to the hotel was Round 1 with games and karaoke. A great place to stay for group.

Thank you for coming back to Biwako Hotel. Thank you for writing a review about the rooms and the restaurant. Lake Biwa is very cold in winter, but in the morning you can experience the clear air and cold snow scenery. From the balcony of the guest room, you can see the snow-capped Mt. Ibuki in the distance. Was this trip to Shiga a wonderful experience? We are looking forward to seeing you again. Thank you.

We had a wonderful stay at biwako hotel for two days”

Lake Piwa was on part of our itinerary while we planed our Japan trip, after compared a few options we decided to book biwako hotel as it has good location, great view facing lake and comforting onsen, tho we prefer higher floor for better view, but it is not a huge matter. We met a extremely helpful lady at front desk, I only got to see her name tag with "麻子". She offers us a great deal after realizing we were there to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary on 29th, Feb. (By the way, she speaks perfect English) If you have planned to visit Lake Piwa, don't miss out the chance to check this hotel.

Awesome place”

Think this is the nicest and most spacious hotel I have stayed while travelling in Osaka and Kyoto. And an awesome view of Lake Biwa. The only negative part is there is not much food choice around the hotel. But they have a very regular shuttle service to send you to the nearest biwako station where you can have more food and restaurant.
