Perfect hotel if you want a quieter retreat after a busy day in Kyoto. Hotel is in Otsu, with a free shuttle running every 30 mins to and from Otsu station. From there you can get the train 2 stops to Kyoto station. We loved it and the view is superb and makes up for any extra travelling you do to get there.

"Well located and the convenience of a shuttle bus"
We stayed 3 nights and found the hotel well located in the north east of Kyoto. You are 10 minutes from the Philosophers path that leads to many temples. You are also near the Shoren in temple and Chinon in. The metro station Keage is 2 minutes away. To assist with transport options you also have the hotel shuttle bus which stops at Sanjo stn and then Gion Shijo which is a great area for restaurants. The shuttle bus also goes on to Kyoto stn. We used this service a number of times. Our room was a Japanese style room and it was a good experience having the rice paper screens and tatami mats and futon. The Japanese style rooms are surrounded by lovely Japaneses gardens. The only downside was the mattress and pillows were very hard. We also did a nature walk in the hotel grounds test leads to a good lookout. We found tgecstaff very helpful with booking aca restaurant and assisting in transport arrangements for an eatY morning departure.

The hotel is situated next to the Conference Center and to the Takaragaike lake. It is a beautiful setting and we enjoyed taking a walk just from the hotel. It is a little far away from the city centre and it takes about 20 minutes by subway. But the subway station is within a few minutes walk from the hotel.

The hotel is located in the hills of Oohara and has excellent walking to temples. Lots of places to eat a short bus ride away. The staff are friendly and helpful. Most visitors come up from Kyoto for an overnight or a long day trip. We stayed 3 days and the staff made us different dinner sets each night, normally it is a one pot miso chicken dish. And beer.
The inn will send a mini bus to pick you up at the bus station, but it is a 10 minute walk Without luggage on a walking/ bike path mostly.

I think that the compact room functions well, e.g. a small desk with a small swivel chair and high speed WiFi. It was quiet in spite of just next to Ogaki railway station. It takes within 5 min to JR, Private railway and Bus station by walk. It will be recommended for business men or women to stay there. The room at 9F provided a nice view of mountains in the blue sky in the direction of North. Also the breakfast was good. The reasonable price reflects on the suitable or more service etc.
