“Mixed Experience”
Reviewed 5 July 2011

Stayed here with a friend on a bike trip around Lake Biwa and into Kyoto. It was fine as a simple hotel. The experience with the service was mixed. LIke many hotels in Japan, there was a narrow window of time for dinner and breakfast. No bath amenities were provided; even getting a towel for bath required an extra charge. On the other hand, the dinner was quite nice (boring decor but great food) and the waitress-receptionist put tremendous effort into our request that she point us to some nightlife options - drawing an elaborate map, explaining the options, and arranging to have the owner of a great bar - Peppermint - come to the hotel to pick us up and deliver us home after a few hours drinking and listening to great tunes. We arrived in the evening and left early in the morning and so did not make use of the beachfront, but it looked nice and like a good place for young children.
