    Yuzano was very authentic and they literally pampered us right when we stepped into the Ryokan, the staff was amazing and quite helpful. My room had a private onsen with a lake view which was like cherry on the top of a cake. It was quiet and very spacious

    We had a suite room with stunning views of Biwa lake and a private outdoor o-furo. If you want to stay in this accommodation just keep in mind that their stuff don't speak almost any English.

    性價比頗高. 客房以二人來說算大, 乾淨整潔, 有供應名牌男女士護慮品; 職員們都很親切, 前枱接待員懂得聽多國語言, 很厲害; 進餐雖不在房中, 但味道和賣相是一流的, 晚餐還有近江牛近江米吃, 很是驚喜.(因預訂時已說明食材由旅館決定, 不一定有近江牛啊!) 然後, 因沒預訂房內風呂的房間, 一定要用"大浴場", 其設施, 裝潢和氣氛都很好, 浴場更有強力按摩池, 令人消除疲勞又放鬆. 旅館在山上, 能鉋覽"琵琶湖"景色, 唯必須先預約接駁車要花多一點功夫, 但無論如何, 都是物有所值的.
