Hotel with beautiful view”

We spent 1 day here. The morning view was very beautiful from our room. Lake Biwa looked stunning. We had a buffet breakfast with a good COVID prevention. The restaurant is located on a high floor, which showed lake Biwa's view. This was an old hotel but they provide a comforting bedding

Excellent Large Rooms”

I intended a one night stopover on a cycling trip, but heavy rain meant I spent a second night. The first was a bit expensive (national holiday), the second was very cheap, so overall good value. Other reviews make it sound bad, but although it's not the most modern, that's not really a problem for me. It is well kept and very clean. The best bit is the size of the rooms. Mine had 3 beds and a couch plus table, desk and chair. Also a nice large opening window. There is a large downstairs sitting area with tea and coffee and local newspapers. A 7 eleven is about 200 metres up the road. The staff were very friendly and let me keep my bike in my room. This is always a bonus to touring cyclists who often ride expensive bikes. Strangely there is no English sign that I could see from the road. It was a pleasant change from the normal small box like rooms you get in budget business hotels.

立地は琵琶湖の畔ですが窓を開けたらラブホテル街しか見えませんでした。コンビニやショッピングモールは徒歩圏内にあり便利です。 部屋数に対して駐車場が少ない気がします。 値段は安いがかなり老朽化してます。周囲の部屋の音がよく聞こえます。 1Fに電子レンジが置いてあり、コンビニ弁当などを部屋に行く途中で温められるのは良かったです。 元々の宿泊料が安く、今回は旅行割と滋賀周遊クーポンを3000円分頂き、収支が1000円ほどプラスになりラッキーでした。 ネガティブな意見ばかり書きましたが、部屋は広いです。機会があればまた宿泊したいと思います。
