HOTEL KOO Otsuhyakumachi / Shiga Otsu 87


[Received Good Design Award 2018]
Japan's first shopping arcade hotel, renovating a town house.
Designed by the well known architecture Yoshiji Takehara.
Using the good materials for renovation, it creates a new type of
design while preserving its history.

This hotel is created as one of the project to let the tourists enjoy
Otsuhyakumachi, where it used to be crowded with many people.
We have also implemented "Stay Funding" which part of the staying fees will goes
to the arcade street. Also, we have numerous experience programs to change shopping
arcade into entertaining contents.

In order to make the seven old town houses into a hotel, we focused on the "comfort".
Currently, there are several hotels in Kyoto, where renovation has done, but we believe
this is just a superficial renovation. They have not seek for its true "comfort".

Our hotel has succeeded to take off all of the floor, wall, ceilings and with the reconstruction, 
we had put insulation work and renovated with noise proof walls. All the windows are pair glasses.

All the soil walls which looks like it has been there for a long time, it has been repainted.
Instead of letting you experience the old town house, our renovation concept is letting the guests
experience the convenience and compactness, the greatness of wooden housings.
Our hotel can be stayed with light clothes even in the winter.

There is former Tokaido's "Kyomachi street", "Chumachi street". where shops are lined up in rows, 
and "Hama street" where products were stocked, all of them are gathered in this area as an arcade street.
As you walk by the street, you will be able to recall the old days when it was crowded with many people.

I stayed overnight at a facility for rent. The facilities and the staff were very good. It was a plan without meals, but there were restaurants and food stores in places where I could walk, so I did not feel inconvenienced.

It was a short stay, but I was able to have a good time thanks to the very kind and responsible staff. Delicious tea, coffee and snacks are prepared at the salon, which is very satisfying. The building was nice and hard to leave. It was a really good inn. Thank you very much.

初めての滋賀訪問に伴い、気になっていたこちらへ宿泊いたしました。 16時からの町歩きに参加したのですが、 大津のディープなお店巡りをすることで地域との関わりが持て楽しかったです! 次回は、一棟貸しのお部屋を予約したいと思います!

With the first visit to Shiga, I stayed here to be concerned. I participated in the town walk from 16:00, but it was fun to have a relationship with the area by visiting Otsu's deep shops! Next time, I would like to reserve a room for one building rental!
