"Very close to JR Hikone station, east side. Super friendly staff, a little English spoken. Must be quite new, rooms were very clean. Free coffee and breakfast. Due to Covid you had a take away breakfast, very good, did not expect it. Not so many restaurants on this side of the station, but easy to cross over."

"Stayed there for one night with my son. Only a minute from the station. The free bicycle rentals were nice. Only about a ten minute ride to the beach by bicycle. Five minutes to Hikone Castle. Room was very clean and the front counter staff were very cheerful and helpful. Will probably stay here with my entire family next summer. "

"15 minutes walk or 500 yen cab ride to front of Hikone Castle moat. Hikone is a quiet town and the castle sit high on the hill overlooking Lake Biwa and the surrounding city. The area where this hotel is a newly developed and has outlet store, couple other high-rise hotels and few restaurant to the east. We enjoyed Sushiro (rotating sushi). Winter is the season famous for seafoods that are only caught between November and end of March. Lake Biwa is a get away from hustle and bustle of the cities."
