If being along the coast away from the center of town (and the crowds) this place is ideal. Great view of the ocean as it's located atop a hill. A bit of a walk to the Enoden railway station, but there are several nice restaurants within 10-15 min walking distance aside from the hotel eateries (of course it's cheaper outside..).... More

One and half hour drive out of Tokyo city center you arrive amidst hills and the sea. This hotel is very well designed, each and every room will have a sea view also on a clear sunny sunny day you can view mount Fuji from your balcony. Reception is generally Japanese speaking, it will be quite an effort explaining you... More

Just ashore taxi ride from Kamakura Train Station & a short walk from the local train station. Well maintained hotel with excellently designed rooms, all with picture windows to the sea. Room had everything- kettle, tv, radio, separate changing area, a small seating area, kimono, slippers etc. Best breakfast we had in Japan. Service was extremely friendly & helpful. Courtesy...

Great place to stay that is only an hour away by train from Tokyo. The hotel is very clean, great view of the ocean and of Mt Fuji. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We got a great deal on the room, ($225 USD) We opted out of the breakfast package as it seemed a bit pricey ($25 per... More

We travel Tokyo and Kamakura in this trip. We decided to stay at Kamakura aria which has beautiful nature, ocean and Mount Fuji view. We loved about this aria that not clouded, not too touristy, we could feel localism and just an hour to go Tokyo city. Room is clean, Staff great, the best part of this hotel is a... More

Let's start on a positive note: if you get a room facing the sea, the views are pretty nice. Now for everything else: this is basically a Japanese-style business hotel. That means tiny rooms. Wafer-thin pillows. Cheap sheets. It doesn't have the one-piece plastic bathroom you get in most business hotels, but at 3X the price you expect a little... More

Amazing view of the sea, hotel is built on a hill which adds more beauty to it, 10 mins away from the station. Shuttle survices avilable every 10-15 mins. The only issue is that it is not in the middle of the city (15 mins by transport) Other than that all is great about this hotel

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
