Very Basic hotel on JR line - there are better options

by Gemma'smum on 06 Nov 2016 (Couple Traveller)

The hotel is on the south side of the JR Otsu train station on the 2nd floor. It is about a mile up hill from the lake. Ishiyamadera requires changing train lines as does going into most sites in Kyoto. We had to be in Otsu for work but switched to a far easier location in Kyoto afterwards. The hotel is very basic. Rooms are terribly small. The breakfast is just okay and everything about the hotel is very tired and old. The staff was wonderful, speaks English and are very helpful. Would I stay a...

Good commute base for exploring Kyoto

by Viliam85 on 09 Oct 2016 (Couple Traveller)

Spent here 5 nights when visiting Kyoto. It is more affordable solution than staying in Kyoto but still quite pricey. Breakfast is not included in the rate. Complimentary water was provided every day. The room was ok and wifi worked well. The train station is right next to the hotel and therefore some noice is to be expected. When arriving by train, you enter the hotel by lift which is located on the left hand side exit from the station and need to call station personnel from the intercom on tou...

Overnighter in Otsu

by Bob J on 29 Jun 2016 (Business Traveller)

Stayed for just the one night at the Tetora. Handy hotel for Otsu station, with little else in the immediate vicinity.

It was a pleasant change from the cramped standard business hotel room. The internet was very good in the Tetora, better than most hotels I've stayed in Japan. Breakfast was not included, which overall made the hotel...

Excellent price/quality to visit Kyoto in high season

by G2_Belgium on 09 Apr 2016 (Family Traveller)

Interesting option when visiting Kyoto during High Season due to its good train connection to Kyoto Station (2 stations away). Staff was very friendly and helpfull. Otsu itself unfortunately doesn't has much to offer...

Value for money when visiting Kyoto

by sam p on 25 Dec 2015

Accidentally booked this hotel for 5 nights thinking it was close to Kyoyo city centre. Hotel was clean, quiet with helpful & friendly staff although we knew only 2 Japanese words (Konichiwa & Arikato). Hotel was next to Otsu Station and it was cheap going to Kyoto city everyday. Also, try dinner in the quaint Japanese restaurants nearby (with sake, of course) and then walk home. We also cruised Lake Biwa. Absolutely fabulous!
