Clean and comfortable hotel.”

Location

Although Hotel Tetora Otsu is not located in Kyoto but it is only about 10 minutes ride (JR Train) to Kyoto Station. The hotel is about 5 to 10 minutes walk from the Otsu Station (JR Train). The hotel is clean and comfortable for my 3 nights stay. Highly recommend for any budget travelers.

Great Hotel 5 steps away from JR station!”

Close to JR, 15 minute walk from port, free bottled water and friendly staff!

the hotel is a few steps away from the jr via underground passage and is very close to fun things in otsu like the port and restaurants. being so close to jr it is very easy and fast to get to osaka, a shinkasen line even runs through it. the staff was very friendly and offered free bottled water and an assortment of bath goods! the room was very spacious for japanese rooms and they gave me two pillows!

Fast transit hotel outside Kyoto”

Close to the train station, helpful staff, cleanliness

We picked this hotel just outside Kyoto because all the other reasonably priced hotels in Kyoto were full. The hotel is basically build next to the Otsu train station. Just walk towards the southern exit. To exit the gates in case you're using a JR train pass and there's no attendant, you'll have to push a button to active a 'camera chat' with an operator. If you explain and show your passes he'll let you pass. Then just take the elevator on your right side and go to floor 2. That's the lobby. From the Otsu train station it's around 10 minutes to get to Kyoto . We didn't eat there or have a massage, so I can't make comments on that. The staff is very helpful and speak relatively good English. Maybe the Otsu harbor is worth a short visit, but we didn't have time to go there.

ComS Hotel Otsu”

The staff was friendly and the hotel is incredibly easy to find. The room was quite large too.
The hotel is attached to the train station, which means that you could hear trains all day and all night.

This hotel is in a great place. Once I got over the fact that I could hear the trains outside my window, I really enjoyed the fact that there were so many things within walking distance to see. If you do not mind walking 30-45 minutes, most sight-seeing places do not require taking the train and are clearly marked on the sidewalks. The staff will help you find anything in any way possible as well. The lake is also a mere 15 minute walk north.

Brilliant base for Kyoto sightseeing.”

2 mins from room to train platform. Regular trains - 9 mins to Kyoto station. JR pass covered journey.

Perfect base in terms of access to Kyoto station - where you can access all transport links for sightseeing etc. Bullet trains/ local trains/ subway/buses/bike hire/taxi. We moved to an upmarket Kyoto hotel which took 100% longer by subway to Kyoto station. So the Otsu location was better than the city centre base. The mattresses were very hard, Japanese style. We requested more blankets as the hard mattresses resulted in loss of sleep and back pain (we are in our 20's and are experienced backpackers). It helped but the mattress remained an issue so we checked out. The train station was very close which was a positive but it was also very noisy. Loud musical signals were played every time a train was approaching. Trains appeared to be running from 4.45am - 12.30am.

Kyoto in golden week doesn't give you much choice”

Complimentary make-it-yourself coffee in the lobby and a bottles of water

We had requested a non-smoking room and weren't able to get one. To be fair though we hadn't been guaranteed we were going to get one in the first place. The room itself was fine, but nothing special and really it seemed like it was geared towards single business men staying away from home. I think it was the the smell of cigarette smoke and the in house movie guide in the room that gave me this feeling. We were sight-seeing in Kyoto and commuted there each day, but if we were doing it again I'd get a room in the city instead. That wasn't an option though because we were there during Golden week and everything else was booked out. To be fair the staff were very helpful and friendly
