Stayed here as last hotel as part of a two week motorbike trip across Central Japan. Was very pleasantly surprised . Being the time of year we got an excellent rate which made it all the better . View from room into the bay was excellent . We only stayed one night but wished we had booked for two. Plenty... More

We stayed at an ocean view double room for 8,000 yen (incl.Tax) baring in mind that it was off season and the rooms are old my wife and I enjoyed our short stay here. Their big bath is worth a visit although your rooms have bath tubs too. The view was magnificent and the beach is so close by. I... More

This was the first bad experience we had at a hotel in Japan! Many problems with this place for a western traveler. We needed a place to stay while visiting the south IZU peninsula and Dogashima, and there were very few places to stay. We chose the Prince hotel because it has a name in Japan, however this blew away... More

The hotel itself is old and dirty, but good view and easy access to beach. The room is old carpet and two single beds. Which is small for couple. The pool is small as well and close at 17:00. No wifi. Not recommended.

I can confirm a previous review that my room did have a slightly "fishy" smell to it, the taxi drive into the downtown area is about $20, and that the hotel itself is a bit dated. Additional negatives are: (1) the hotel has no internet - not just no wifi, no internet period; (2) even cell coverage is spotty -... More

I booked this hotel for 2 nights at the beginning of September (after summer is 'officially' over in Japan, considering the calendar) and it was an amazing deal for less than 5,000 JPY/pers (no breakfast included, but that was not a problem for us). The hotel has a bit dated feeling, and some amenities are not so modern any longer... More

Overall the hotel is just okay. The hotel is very dated, but the location is right on the beach on top of a hill. ALL the rooms have a view of the ocean and beach, which is great. Our room was very large, especially for American standards, which had two beds and a Japanese style room too with futons. I... More

Despite the low rate we had from Rakuten travcel site, I could not feel any value for money with this hotel. It is located off town of Shimoda and beachfront. Our room had complete seaview, but it was the only positive about it. Partial refurbishements seemed to have been done but awkwardly. The room size was ok with a double... More
