Stayed with my boyfriend for sightseeing. People here was so nice and the location is good. Ten minute walking to Hikone castle. The building is old but inside is nice and clean. I will definitely use here again . Mami xoxo 彼氏と彦根観光に利用しました。 家屋自体は古いのに、トイレなど綺麗にリフォームされていました。 家族経営なのかな?旅館の人はすごく暖かくて、泊まって良かったです。 次に来ることがあれば、また利用します。
