Convenient base for sightseeing
Excellent room, kept spotless by cleaning staff. Remember reading reviewer's comment re Carpenters musak - still there. As you only hear it whilst using the restaurant, might not get to hear all the tracks! Direct access to Otsu JR station - 2 stops to Kyoto. Restaurant reasonably priced, good food well presented. Staff excellent, but don't expect any English, they have none, but we got by.
Pros: Room cleanliness
Cons: Entrance lobby furniture a bit tired.
Location: We spent 9 days, could have filled 14 with so many sights and things to do in Otsu, and Kyoto.
