A wedding venue. The hotel has no character. The rooms are large, clean and the view is great but the hotel is set up for functions and family groups. Its about 15-20 mins out of Kamakura. A bit distant from restaurants and shops but they do run a courtesy coach every 30 mins to Shichigarama train station. We used the... More

Since we could not find any accomodation in Kamakura, we opted for this luxury hotel located at a short local train distance. This hotel is mainly a wedding factory (the wedding facilities are on the lower part). The large rooms with sea view are fantastic. Not much to see in the close surroundings. A short walk to the Shichirigahama station... More

We booked a room called "mystery room" for 12600 Yen. The room we got was ocean view. The parking was easy to find and the check-in was smooth. The room was nice and clean. One thing about Prince Hotel franchise is their lack of decent room service. An overall average stay. Not so bad but not that great.

Wonderful quiet but elegant place near Shichigarama beach. The staff were respectful and indulgent and the room was excellent. The desk clerk even came after us, and bowed. Do Bill's for breakfast across the street.

Travelers have been going to Kamakura and Enoshima for hundreds of years and there are many old woodblock prints showing their view of Fuji from the place where the Kamakura Prince hotel is now located. All the hotel rooms face the beach and the (potential) view of Fuji. Fuji, however, is fickle, and sometimes appears, floating above the clouds... and... More

While our room was not as large as those of some previous reviewers, it was perfactly adequate by Japanese standards. The view from our window on our first day was non-existent- we were totally fogged in, and thus were somewhat baffled as to why so little effort has been made to provide a pleasant garden outside the breakfast restaurant because...

If you are going to Kamakura, this hotel is well worth a splurge. The rooms are huge and extremely comfortable, and the views absolutely cannot be beaten. The hotel itself has nice amenities, and it is very nicely located. If you do not have a car, there is a train station nearby that is nicely convenient for exploring the entire... More

The rooms are not at all plush, although they are large by Japanese standards. What you are paying for is the ocean view, which is lovely. It's not a quiet beach view, though, which is what I was led to expect by other reviews and the hotel's website. Instead, you overlook the train tracks and a well-traveled street, and then... More

We spent two nights at the Prince and loved every bit of it. The rooms are simple, very elegant and extremely clean. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was adequate in size and spotless. The best thing about the room, actually, about this hotel, is the view. From your room you see the ocean, Enoshima and its island... More

We were on our way from Hakone to Tokyo, taking a detour to visit Kamakura and sites along the Enodin Line (the rides along the Enodin is an attraction by itself). The hotel is beautiful, clean, with great views, has a grand reception area and a hugh outdoor swimming pool, together with all the Japanese perfections! The elevator connecting the... More
