Great Stay at Otsu
The staff were great in their service, from checking in to checking out. We initially booked a room with an outdoor onsen bath tub but didn’t realized that the shower facilities were also outdoor. Due to winter, our young toddler was unable to shower outdoor and it was inconvenient for us to bring him to the public bath. We expressed our concern and the staff was very helpful and immediately helped us to find an alternative room with an indoor bath tub and shower. We were moved to a higher floor room which was great as it offered a 180 degree view of the lake during the day. Very appreciative of the kind gesture of their staff. Food were great too. We enjoyed the kaiseki dinner, the beef was excellent. Would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone who is coming to Otsu.
