琵琶湖ホテル Biwako Hotel

Resort
Biwako Hotel / Shiga Otsu 173

Overview

A lake resort only 10 minutes away from Kyoto has fascinated many people by the great sight: Bright mornings that bathe the guests with gentle light and a fantastic orange sunset tenderly embraces you. 

The newly renovated guest rooms feature rooms with blue resort-like spaces and others shining the atmosphere and the souls of the guests. The view of Lake Biwa greets anyone who enters, allowing guests to have a relaxing time and feel like becoming one with nature.

The best part of Biwako Hotel is to enjoy natural hot springs on the lake side on top of the exquisite hotel experience.

Dishes decorated with ingredients found and harvested in the local woodlands can only be appreciated in modern times.
A dish such as this is only possible by those who love the land of Shiga and understand and appreciate the history of the hotel.

Biwako Hotel was established as a resort hotel at Otsu in 1934 becoming famous for its beautiful scenery next to the waterside.

The hotel welcomes guests with its beautiful scenery, cozy breeze, seafood from the rich lake, and the care of respecting the tradition and history.

This is the place to feel relaxed and comfortable anytime!

チェックアウト時に清算金額を過剰に請求された。こちらからの指摘がなければ支払わされていると思うとゾッとする。個人的には共同浴場をもう少し手入れすれば良いと思う。レストランは素晴らしい。

I was charged an excessive amount at checkout. If there is no indication from here, I will be relieved to think that it is paid. Personally, I think I should take care of the communal bath a little more. The restaurant is wonderful.

I had a relaxing time with my daughter in a 33 square meter room. The view of Lake Biwa from the 7th floor was also amazing. The facilities and equipment were both new, clean and comfortable. The hot springs were also good hot water and the towels were saved in the bathroom. The difficulty is that the dressing room is too small for a large hotel and it is a little crowded. Breakfast was abundant and delicious, and I ate too much, but it would have been nice if there were some more unusual local ingredients. The staff were also impressed with the polite response and smiles. I would like to stay again.

The room was large and the view of Lake Biwa was great. The dinner was buffet style, but I felt dangerous because the place for taking a little food was small and crowded and the children were running. For breakfast, the meal time varied, so I could relax and relax. I was glad that the amenity was a little more ...
