The Sotetsu Fresa Inn is a couple of minutes by foot from the Ofuna Station, which is just two stops away from Kamakura Station. Also there is a direct bus service Ofuna Station to Haneda Airport. The rooms are small, typical of Japan but clean and functional. The hotel restaurant is limited but there are many bars and restaurants very... More

Rooms are tiny. Basically, it's a bed up against a wall with a bit of hallway to squeeze into. We were glad it was only for two nights because of the tiny space. Location is great, as are staff, and really, we only spent a few hours sleeping in the room before heading out, but my poor husband had to... More

Sotetsu Fresa Inn has a great location to go expore Kamakura from. Ofuna is an easy train station to explore from and go back out from (useful if you leave your luggage in the hotel while you go out). The hotel is a 3mn walk from the north train station exit, and there are countless food sources and other entertainment... More

Very near the train station, very clean, comfy bed, good water pressure, fridge, hotpot, very small. After one week, near the end of the week my husband and I began to get on each other's nerves, but it was ok. Have been in small rooms in NYC, not usually for a week. There is a grocery store in the mall... More

One of the most outstanding features of this hotel is its location. As soon as we stepped out of the Ofuna Station, we saw our hotel. The staff spoke very limited English, but we had no trouble checking in and they were very friendly. I was taken aback by the tiny room--a room built around a bed. I'm glad my... More

Just 1 min walk from Ofuna Station and you can find lovely restaurants around there. Room is a wee bit small, but its very comfy and no noises during we stayed. All stuff are ready in the room; toothbrush, shampoo, conditioner, shower cream, slippers, hair-dryer, humidifier and mug. If you are not fancy to use cleaned (sterilized) slippers in your... More

We booked this hotel directly through their website looking for a close, reasonable option (10'000 yen a night) and close to a station for sightseeing in Kamakura. After looking at several options in the area that were more pricey, too far away and a long haul from a station, we were not disappointed with our choice. They allowed us to... More
