    Beautiful Hotel in front of Lake Biwa. Room is spacious and very clean, bed is comfortable. There is a good breakfast buffet was a huge assortment of food. Not much to do at night, there are a few shops nearby but they close early.

    Large lobby. Large hotel room had 2 chairs and a small sofa. Free wifi in room and lobby. Small fridge. No room safe. Nice sized bathroom with wide sink area, separate bathtub and shower. Buffet breakfast.

    Although not in Otsu it's close enough to visit Kyoto 4 stops and stay in this very large hotel. Has some very nice but expensive restaurants with not much close by. Pricey spa services, a pool and a small but nice bar.
