Biwako Otsu Prince Hotel, Otsu
Excellent4.0 / 5
Scenic, comfortable, convenient. English friendly.
The location, right on Lake Biwa, next to a biking/walking path along the lake and near several lakeside parks, was excellent. Bike rentals right from the hotel (400 yen first hour, 200 each additional hour). Easy walk to restaurants, convenience stores, big department store (Seibu) which also contains several restaurants. Free shuttle every half-hour from the hotel to the train station; quick ride from there to Kyoto. Rooms was surprisingly spacious for Japan (similar to a traditional western hotel), very clean, with very comfortable beds. Meals at the hotel are very expensive and nothing is open before 7 am, but there is a convenience store walking distance and an electric teakettle in the room if you bring your own coffee or tea bags. There were very few western guests, and not all the staff are comfortable with English, but we were always able to communicate our needs, and the front desk was incredibly helpful with anything we needed. Would definitely stay here again if we could get another good discount rate.

Poor1.0 / 5
Not as expected
While the front desk service was fine, on all other points the hotel was not as expected. The shuttle to the station is just once an hour, and to walk to a shopping area with restaurants is 15 minutes. Right around the hotel there's not much except the lake in terms of restaurants or shops tourists would visit (there is a grocery store about 5 minutes from the hotel). The building is outdated and needs renovation, particularly its air conditioning which never seemed cool enough even on the most powerful setting, and seemed to blow in stale tobacco odors from smoking rooms, as well as the carpets and upholstery which in my room had a lot of stains. The pool is quite large, but shallow at just 1 m depth. I got charged 1000 yen per use plus 500 yen for a deck chair, and the locker room facilities at the pool are very worn out. Even the lobby -- what you see in the photos is the coffee shop which charged 750 yen per cup of coffee. In reality there are not comfortable chairs in the lobby, instead a line-up of old red velvet victorian chairs. In short, the hotel needs renovation, and with that the stunning views of the lake could really be enjoyed.

The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. We ran into trouble when we returned to the hotel just after the restaurants closed and we had two hungry kids with us. The staff went out of their way to help us out. We had a beautiful view of the lake from our room.
