The hotel is on the south side of the JR Otsu train station on the 2nd floor. It is about a mile up hill from the lake. Ishiyamadera requires changing train lines as does going into most sites in Kyoto. We had to be in Otsu for work but switched to a far easier location in Kyoto afterwards. The hotel...

Spent here 5 nights when visiting Kyoto. It is more affordable solution than staying in Kyoto but still quite pricey. Breakfast is not included in the rate. Complimentary water was provided every day. The room was ok and wifi worked well. The train station is right next to the hotel and therefore some noice is to be expected. When arriving...

Stayed for just the one night at the Tetora. Handy hotel for Otsu station, with little else in the immediate vicinity. I believe I was allocated a disability room, as it was huge and seemed to catered for wheelchairs. The room had a small living area with a sofa and coffee table. It was a pleasant change from the cramped...

Hotel was clean, quiet with helpful & friendly staff although we knew only 2 Japanese words (Konichiwa & Arikato). Hotel was next to Otsu Station and it was cheap going to Kyoto city everyday. Also, try dinner in the quaint Japanese restaurants nearby (with sake,...

This hotel is located a stone's throw away from Otsu station, which was good because they are connected directly through the south exit. However was extremely disappointed with the room condition. Peeling wallpaper, dirty carpet with stains, and worse, a spider came crawling on the wall at night. I managed to capture the spider with a ziplock bag and took...

This hotel is located directly next to Otsu station, which is a 10 minute train ride to Kyoto main station, with trains leaving every 10 minutes or so. So, a very easy commute to Kyoto, and you save quite some money by not staying in downtown Kyoto. The hotel is modern and clean, the twin room was spacious.

The theb-otsu is a newish business style hotel from ishinhotels of Japan. I stayed [29/04/2006] in the hotel paying a single room promotion rate of JPY5,500 per night. I did not take the breakfast which is usually very good in this type of hotel. The hotel is a very short walked from Otsu JR station giving easy access to Kyoto,...
