The room is old fashion. Old bed sheet and sofa design. But the view out the window is fantastic. The restaurant at the top floor outlook to the Biwako lake is so mesmerizing.

I had a nice view of lake Biwa. The rooms are spacious with lots of room for luggage and a work area for your PC. WIFI in the lobby. Nice breakfast buffet. The hotel is a bit away from any business center so is in a nice quiet relaxing area.

This hotel is a bid far away from town . The closest shopping mall is 15 minutes. Dinner menu starts from 4000 yen , so for people considering meal outside , take extra time to walk to the plaza and the road is relatively dark . 🙂 I love the laundry , for 100 yen for washing , 100 yen...

Comfortable and clean. Breakfast was great with a good selection of food. The lake is across the road and a brisk morning walk was very enjoyable. No coffee sachets in rooms - this is the norm for Japan

We just finished our company's FY-2014 Kickoff event here. It's a good place with all the facilities you need to organize a corporate event upto 100 people. Very nice lake view from the restaurant, indoor games like volleyball, badmintion, tenis & basketball. Nice Western style and Japanese style rooms. It is little out of city (near Katada station), but they...

The hotel itself was very good but at a price of being completly out of the town centre. We had good large rooms which were clean and modern. Large comfortable beds and a good range of both western and japanesse food on the included buffet breakfast.
