"We stayed in a Sky Floor Double Room on level 32. The view of Lake Biwa is stunning from there. The room is large by Japanese standard, cloaked in happy blue, silver and white shades - a perfect reflection of its location by the lake. Room comfort is worthy of five stars. Location-wise, it stands by Lake Biwa, accessible only by taxi or a free regular shuttle bus that plies between Otsu Station and the hotel. The nearest train station to get on foot is Zeze, about 18 minutes away at a regular pace. One can also walk to Seibu mall, about 15 minutes along the lake. Kyoto is just two train stops from Otsu Station, 10 minutes away. As Otsu Station sits on the Biwako Line, one can easily move onwards to Shin-Osaka (40min by a rapid service), Osaka and even Himeji!

"This was my favorite hotel I stayed at on my third trip to Japan. I splurged a bit for this one and it did not disappoint. I had a lovely Japanese style room, where I could see lake biwa from the windows. A yukata was provided for me during the stay. The staff was very accommodating and was very kind right when I walked in the doors. My purpose here was one night of relaxation and good food. That was exactly what I received. I booked a shirodara + body massage and felt amazing. The masseuse was extremely good and helped worked all of the knots out of my back after 3 days of traveling around and walking 10+ miles a day. The food here made me extremely happy. The dinner and breakfast were both immaculate. These were probably the best meals I had my entire trip. The food was not served in the room, but in a private dining room in their 'restaurant'. I didn't mind this at all. The onsen were also really nice. At night the rooftop onsen was available for the women - the view was great at night. It was really peaceful to bathe and overlook the lake / town. The following day had the other two. The outdoor one I thought was far better than the indoor one. If you have to choose one, I'd highly recommend that you go to the outdoor one."

"Staying here for one night was probably the highlight of our trip to Japan! It's a little pricey, but I would definitely stay here again because the room, private bath on the balcony, and the view were simply incredible. The service was fantastic too! I didn't realize that I needed to book dinner when I booked the room so unfortunately we couldn't enjoy dinner in our rooms (which wasn't a huge deal because we got to try a local place), but the breakfast buffet was delicious! I would definitely recommend staying here. "

"Feels like 5* - quality bed, pillows, cushions, linens, air machine, toilet paper better than everywhere else I've been to in Kansai. Housekeeping not only tops up your items but make sure the basics are topped up + what you've used, also mindful which angle u have left them. Booked here to see Biwako Valley, ski, sightseeing n depended on Otsu Tourist Info Centre for sight seeing recommendations. Sadly they (speak Chinese which I speak too) r not experienced n only suggested 2 typical routes that I didn't enjoy when it was cloudy day n because Otsu City has nothing much but a hike linking to East of Kyoto. Managed to research myself n found an attraction - grass house + hiking to see Lake Biwa at Omihachiman (few JR stops away from JR Otsu). Izakaya straight down the road (don't think is in the map provided by hotel but 2 min walk towards JR Otsu), decent n cheap (many dishes at 380yen). No coin laundry. Huge game centre w/ archery etc right next to hotel w free shuttle from JR Otsu"

"It was pleasant. The hotel staff were great, and the service excellent. They have dehumidifiers, extra pillows, and chair warmers for no extra charge. It's only 25mins by railway to Kyoto station, and close to Hikone and Otsu. Good place to stay."

"Our stay at the Smile Hotel Otsu Seta was a pleasant surprise from the moment we entered the lobby. Based on the affordable price, we didn't have high expectations. However, the staff was friendly and ready to meet our every request. Our double-bed room was small by U.S. standards but clean,relatively comfortable, and well-supplied with travelers' needs. The hotel provided a nice variety of foods at the breakfast buffet. All in all a great value!"

"I stay here after skiing in Biwako Valley, it's very good experience, they will pickup you in station after you call them. They also have shutle bus to station at certain time. Their food are good, traditional japan food, traditional japan room with affordable price. Just take notes, there is no lady to service you like in other ryokan. They have 2 onsen for free and by paying a small amount of money (600yen) you can access other onsen in nearby sister hotel including the rooftop onsen!"
