The scenery makes it a five-star hotel”
I really enjoy my stay at the Biwako Hotel. The transportation is convenient. The hot spring is enjoyable. The scenery makes it a five-star hotel. Will definitely try to stay here again.

The hotel is very nice and the views were amazing. The beds were not very comfortable though. ”
The value for your money at this hotel is not great, mostly because the beds were not comfortable and the pillows were hard memory foam. The price was expensive and we got a discounted rate. The hotel is very nice though and the hot springs were lovely. The hotel provided yukatas in the room which was great. The view of the lake was such a lovely way to start and end our days. Overall it was a good experience just kind of pricey.

Newly renovated hotel with great staff and service”
1. 10-15 min from Kyoto by train. Frequent shuttle bus to/from hotel from very early morning to late night. Also in a walkable distance from the station 2. All room faces the lake 3. The renovated room was extremely new and super clean. Spacious, modern design and functional. 4. Breakfast was great. Better than average hotels in Japan. But dinner was so-so in my opinion, anyway, the service was great.

Really nice hotel”
This place is really fancy. Staff are very friendly. They have a shuttle that runs every 15 minutes from the hotel to Otsu station. The location is right on the lake and is very pretty. There's some parks and really nice hiking in Otsu as well. It's pretty easy to get into Kyoto, but next time I will probably stay somewhere more directly in the city.

Great view from the room!”
Great view from the room looking out to Lake Biwako! The room itself was spacious, the bathroom was in squeaky clean. The location makes for a great base to explore around the lake or even just around the hotel. Didn't try the food as it was quite expensive, but you can explore around the hotel and eat out. The bath was great, generously equipped, and has both indoor one with a view, and outdoor one!

Fantastic hotel”
Didn't expect such a nice hotel. 10 mins walk to Otsu train station, but you have frequent free shuttle bus to ferry you. Hotel is right beside the lake and all rooms should be facing the lake. Room is very large, quite relaxing as well. Highly recommend.
