The hotel has a beautiful view on the ocean. Kamakura is about 20 minutes away by train - the trains are frequent and you can pay with your Pasmo card if you bought it in Tokyo or Kyoto. The hotel offers a shuttle to the small train station but it's every half hour, while you'll need ten minutes walking. I...

Stayed here when touring , it's a big cemi circular hotel on a hill top with brilliant views , ecpecilly sunset. The place is looking very old fashioned and tired now, in need of modernisation, rusty metal support beams on the outside is not the sort of thing you want too see especially at these prices. Breakfast was o.k no...

Kamakura is on the beach about 1.5 hours by train from Tokyo. The Kamakura Prince Hotel is by far the best hotel in the area. Not unlike an American resort hotel, it provides all amenities in one location. The rooms are very modern and comfortable. The pool area is beautiful and the views over the ocean and nearby island are...

The Prince was the hotel selected by our tour company and what a wonderful property. It reminded us of the Hapuna Prince hotel on Hawaii. Unfortunately we only spent one night but are looking forward to going back. Upscale in every way. Large rooms, separate bath area, views of the ocean, designer toiletries, and a sitting area in your room....

I have stayed at this hotel several times because I love Kamakura so much. The Great Buddha or Daibutsu at Kamakura is my mate and the Prince is an ideal hotel on the beach. Being an Aussie I was prepared on this visit. I brought my own breakfast and would eat in my room. Not just vegemite but muesli. The...

We stayed at Prince Hotel Shichuragawa Kamakura. Nice large rooms with all you need. Balcony , WiFi , view to Mt Fuji and Enoshima Is.

Beach walking included, although...

Nice view, nice place but that's all. We wished to get a fan for better ventilation as we couldn't stand the warm air condition. However, they advised us to open the door, which is facing Pacific ocean. The salty and heavy wind didn't help much though. The service was far behind our expectation. It's the worst accommodation in Tokyo we've...

The Kamakura Prince has all the features one would want in a beach vacation hotel; ocean view from all the rooms; a transom window that opens so you can safely enjoy the beach air at night; short walk to the beach where you can stroll for miles; reasonably price meals at the hotel; and a variety of interesting restaurants close...

Hotel is of a very good standard, rooms are large and comfortable and there are lovely sea views. Didn't have a good experience of the restaurant for an evening meal as was expensive, slow service and menu was uninteresting. Also no atmosphere in the evening. Breakfast was much better with a good choice of food including omlettes made to order.
