The hotel’s location and views are the best part. The room was mostly very nice with fairly updated bathroom, although some of the furniture needed touch ups. The floor to ceiling glass windows are perfect. The bedding and sheets were extremely fine and everything was very clean. The breakfast restaurant has high ceilings, beautiful views and the food was quite good. The lobby also has a nice seating area as shown in the photo. The service staff were great… very professional. If walking, best to take the “elevator” up to the lobby from the wedding building at street level. I always rate hotels based upon the price and the price is very low for this hotel so I think it is very much for the price.
Rooms were clean and the atmosphere was perfect. Enjoyed the holidays with family. Staff was friendly and supportive. Hope if the WIFI connection was strong enough. Overall it was a great stay for an affordable price.
This locate is very close to the beach and is next to a golf course. They also have parking onsite with parking fee around 1000 yen per night, so it's also convenient for those driving to Kamakura. The hotel is a bit out dated but rooms were clean and staff were friendly and helpful. Each room has a big glass window looking toward the sea and a small balcony to enjoy a bit of sea breeze. We stayed for 2 nights and were lucky that on our last day of stay, we were able to catch a glimpse of Mt Fuji from our hotel room. That was one of our highlight for the trip. Overall, a good hotel for people wants a quite and vacation like stay.
This is a resort style hotel in the hilly area of Kamakura (hour to two hours from Tokyo) Check in is efficient and breakfast is in this large room overseeing sea. Room has central heating and not able to turn down. Free WiFi for 7 days is convenient. Room is reasonable but bathroom slightly smaller than some hotels. Heated toilet seats. The area is scenic and serene but only has cafes nearby and not bars. Taxi from Kamakura station is 2000 yen.
This is the best place to stay in Kamakura. Every room faces the ocean, with glass windows from floor to ceiling and a tiny balcony one person can stand in, if needed. Woke up to an amazing view of Mt. Fuji right outside our window. The lobby feels old, with a small casual place to grab a bite. They have a very big store in the lobby with lots of beautiful clothes but they're pricey. They also have a small convenient store with your basics, with is convenient. We were surprised there was no ice machine. We had to buy ice form their little store! They don't advertise this as much as they should: they offer a shuttle bus to the nearby train station every hour. Sadly, it stops at 5. They should extend it to maybe 8 pm? There are numerous restaurants, a pharmacy and a supermarket within walking distance. Too cold to go to the pool but it looked very nice. Overall, given the area, this was the perfect spot for us.…
We concur with the other reviews re: "nice, comfortable, functional". It has a nice view, and it located close to the beach/ocean but is somewhat isolated. One hint, if walking from Shirigahama station, do not follow Goggle Maps. Google Maps will take you through a residential district, up the hill to the regular entrance to the hotel, about a 10 to 15 minute walk. Take the coastal route instead. After turning left on the road up the hill to the hotel, cross the street, to the Kamakura Price hotel convention/conference center. The conference center has a funicular (a cable car, that goes up an incline) that connects the conference center to the lobby of the hotel. it will save you the walk up/down the hill, and cuts the walking time to Shichirigahama station to 5-10 minutes.…
We stayed here for one night. The hotel is located directly on the shore in front of the beach, it has even a golf place! We had a beautiful see view room, it is clean and has all the facilities we needed. The hotel also has three or four restaurants, if you prefer dinning out, there are a few choices just within the walking distance along the coast. We had a good experience here.
My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night as we had stopped in Kamakura on our way back to Tokyo. It was a pretty long walk from the station to the hotel, not because it's particularly far, but because there's a lot of hills-- which wasn't exactly fun with luggage. Apparently, though, there is a shuttle to and from the station offered by the hotel. We made use of it on our way back- I sure wish we'd known about it on the way there, it would have made our lives easier! The hotel itself is in a pretty residential area and there isn't really much to do around it. Otherwise, this hotel was pretty nice. Unfortunately we were only able to get two twin beds rather than a king bed. The room was quite large though, with a fairly nice bathroom. We went to the japanese restaurant in the building next to the hotel for dinner and had a lovely time! The view from every room in the hotel is gorgeous, as all are facing the water. The restaurant that breakfast is served in has large windows also facing the water, which made for a lovely experience. The food for breakfast was fairly simple and it was a small and pretty basic buffet, but nonetheless, it was pretty good. I wouldn't consider this to be a luxury hotel by any means. But it did the job, and the staff are all very nice! There's also a cute gift shop on the lobby level that I purchased a few souvenirs in. Overall I had a good experience, though I think next time I would just bite the bullet and head straight to Tokyo instead of taking the time to rest for a night in Kamakura.…
We had a sea room and were fortunate enough to have a clear view of Mount Fuji for many hours early one September morning. The room was reasonably spacious as was the bathroom. Perhaps the rate was a little on the expensive size given that we were out of season. There was also a sense that it focused more on weddings and conferences. We decided not to dine in the hotel. Breakfast was charged at a high rate and there seemed to be more interesting options elsewhere in the area. The staff were efficient.
Second visit. Completely changed my mind regarding service. Sun beds are paid(they are expensive and are hard and not a bit comfortable) they do not offer pool service(drinks, etc), the waiting line for breakfast is ridiculous and definitely some management changes need urgently to be done.(I am writing this while waiting in line and we are here for 40 minutes already. More people coming out from restaurant than getting in). Kamakura Prince Hotel is an expensive hotel, being so we expect higher service quality.
