When it comes to the location this place is awesome. All rooms have superb seaview and even the onsen (spa) has great views on the rough pacific. Don't expect the staff to be vert welcoming to foreign guests that don't speak Japanese. Very little seems possible. There was only one restaurant open that would only serve pre-booked Japanese meals starting... More

Wow what a location!!!! Prince really need to renovate the place though, what a missed opportunity...A beach front site like that lends itself to a high level 5 star hotel with great amenities. The staff were fantastic and service was excellent, the hotel is just dated and stuck in the '80s

The hotel is very 70's, but no biggie. It could be cleaner in common areas and also the outside. I don't smell smoke which is a big deal for me (some reviewer said they did). We were in a non-smoking room on the 4th if that matters. Not a fan when workers don't say good morning and such, we had... More

Me and my friends booked a room for 2 nights with a great view from room. The rooms are big. Bathroom was fine. They have 2 extra futon on the cabinet.. No wifi in rooms. You need to go to lobby to connect.

Amazing location on an older property. That said, the rooms are well maintained and very clean. Views of the ocean side and beyond are great. Friendly and helpful staff at every service. Excellent value and a place we will visit again.

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
