    From my perspective, there wasn't much to do within a mile walk of the property. Only one restaurant off site in that mile two convenience stores and if you walk a bit further a pretty mellow "redlight" district

    Otsu Town seems not beautiful at first sigh.

    Otsu Town seems not beautiful at first sigh. But go to have a walk behind the hotel. The countryside is like a Miyazaki movie getting real ! You can go near from there : temples, beach, ski station with incredible view… But with the hotel’s shuttle and the station you have Kyoto, very near, Nara, Osaka a little farther. You’ve got all Kansaï by JR… A good tip : when you go to the station to Shirahige shrine, don’t take bus but walk with GPS. The way is just incredible with village, other shrines so quiet and monkey looking at you from the forest behind rice fields…

    Otsu, located near Kyoto, is another treasure place in Japan. Faced to Biwa lake it has many historical monument and cultural hotspots. In summer the big firework event is so famous to attract many people. In Biwako Hall many world class concerts and plays are performed. Local fishes and sakes are another charm for visitors. Once you come here you cannot help missing this unforgettable city.

    At first I thought I might be bored but there’s so much to do! It’s a little difficult to travel from place to place; lots of walking. But there’s lots of history, friendly people, and beautiful nature.

    Otsu is a great location to get away from the city life of Japan. It is quite peaceful here and is located next to a large lake (lake biwa) which is perfect for fishing enthusiasts. Overall, this location is clean and quiet, different from the bustling cities of Japan and i would recommend this place to those who enjoy a scenic walk and a calm environment.

    Beautiful spot near the lake.

    Beautiful spot near the lake. Perfect for those that want to stay a little out of the hustle and bussle, in perhaps a bigger / better value for money hotel, but still within close proximity to Kyoto.

    I loved everything about this stay. The hotel and rooms are beautiful and very traditional. We had the room with the garden view and I highly recommend, I could have sat on that porch for hours looking at the garden. The staff were so friendly and helpful and very patient with my terrible Japanese! The breakfast was delicious and v generous. Good location - easy to find and walking distance from the station. I recommend the local restaurant Kadoman to try Omi beef, the best meal of my life!

    I was really impressed with the facilities - the bathroom and showers were very modern and clean, good lockers to store your valuables, free towels and slippers (in some places you have to rent them) staff were friendly and there was a nice restaurant next to the hostel. I had nice pizza and beer! I was cycling the Biwaichi and there was a cheap cycle storage place just across the road from the hotel. It's also in a good location for the cycle route.

    Staff were very friendly and kept my bag for me while I went traveling around the city. They even upgraded my room to a twin (which has never happened to me before) so I got to enjoy a larger room. Beds were comfy, complimentary water was provided. Even the VOD was free (this is usually a paid service, so was a nice surprise). Hotel is also located a stone's throw away from the local station, and has a convenience store right next door.

    This was our first experience with an Onsen (and first trip to Japan). We paid extra for the deluxe room with an en-suite Onsen bath and it was AWESOME! The room comes with dinner and breakfast, both were excellent and it was fun to get dressed up in the traditional Japanese clothing (provided by hotel). Everything was better than expected/pictured online, very happy to have selected this property.

    The included breakfast and dinner was a delicious, visually amazing traditional Japanese spread. This place is a must for anyone wishing to get the authentic ryokan experience, though you have to be willing to step out of your comfort zone a bit to wear the provided yukata and go to the public bath. Easy transit to Kyoto means you can stay outside the city on your visit.

    the room was overlooking the lake and it was beautiful! There was a free shuttle connecting the JR station and the hotel departing every 20 mins. The bus ride was only 5 mins and you could walk to the hotel in 10-15 mins. Bike rental was not complimentary, but it was fun riding around the lake.

    The innkeeper is an artist and she acts as your surrogate mother while you are here. Be sure to ask for room 203 which is set up as a traditional Japanese living room. She and her husband got up in the middle of the night to see me off. I couldn't recommend more highly.

    Gorgeously remodeled traditional inn with all the modern comforts and stylish mid century modern furniture. Very hospitable staff who speak English and have helpful recommendations. Their efforts to revitalize the Ōtsu community are laudable.

    It has a very retro feels of the late 80 and early 90 infrastructure. The room was a fusion of old and new and it really shows. Very authentic Japanese experience in a field of other competitive hotels around Lake Biwa area
