“Away from the hustle and bustle.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

We enjoyed 1 earthquake during our stay here in Hiroshima! But all was fine :). The setting of this hotel is amazing although it is a little far from the touristy spots in the city. The accommodations are very nice but the services and dining is a little pricey even for Japan standards. I would return just for the view if I could...so yes I would stay here again:)

We booked a triple room at this hotel, but were given a double plus a fold out couch to make the third bed, which made the room very tight even for Japan standards. We requested another room but the hotel was booked out due to the Cherry blossum festival.
We also had a broken shower tap which ment that we could only take a bath each for the three of us, once again we spoke to management but they advised us that as it was at night time it would be fixed the following day but that was the day we were checking out.

Wioth a lovely setting on the water, the Grand Prince is a short drive outside downtown Hiroshima - some shopping is available at hotel, but otherwise a drive is necessary. we arrived late and left early, so can't evaluate hotel restaurants or amenities, though the large buffet breakfast was adequate (large tour groups use the hotel, and breakfast was in a huge room). Room clean and bed comfortable, but a bit hard. However, the room was perhaps the quietest hotel room we have ever had - NO nose whatsoever from outside or inside hotel.

Although this is quite away out of the main city centre, it is totally worth staying here, if only for the view! When we arrived and looked out the window we were greeted with a panorama view of the Setan sea and islands. There is a free courtesy bus that leaves the hotel quite regularly and drops you off at the train station so you look round the city. There is also a trolley bus around the city centre which will take you to the A Dome site and the museums are close by.
The hotel itself is lovely, the rooms are generous by Japan terms. The only thing is the food and especially the drinks are expensive. For some tasty food though try the okinayamanaki cafe just next door. Good cheap and filling meals.
There is also a nice walk around the headland - just watch the tide though as the water comes up onto the path. Would definitely stop here again!

Stayed for one night as part of a tour party. Clean room, with efficient staff. Size of room not great, but is normal for Japan. Good view across the bay (especially at night). Situated on a small peninsular, it's ideally located for a morning run or walk. Breakfast buffet limited, but does the job.

Ocean view from the room on higher floor up from 14th floor. Onsen bath on 3rd floor is an experience with outside bath with not much view. A direct fast boat to Miyajima, Eda and Kure with two days pass port boat ride is convenient. Minor is no WIFI connection (only LAN cable) free internet connection in the room. Bit far from the station but it's in a small peninsula almost like an island, so quiet and nice beach. Services are not international standard but it's Hiroshima and fairly good will services were there. Rooms are not too big but a fantastic view. We enjoyed staying there.

Room Tip: reserve a higher floor than 14th to enjoy view

Best thing about this hotel is the great views, the area its located next to world heritage listed Miyajima. However the hotel is badly dated and in need of a major renovation. Basically its an early 90's hotel and nothing has changed since then.
They need to refit the rooms, decor and upgrade with new technology like wifi. Wouldnt recommend this hotel unless your visiting Miyajima and want to be close.
