“Hotel close to Miyajima Island”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Located just a short ferry ride from Miyajima Island, the Grand Prince Hiroshima is an ideal choice for tourists looking to explore the island. It's not located centrally to Hiroshima, although there is a free shuttle operated by the hotel as well as a city bus that comes regularly that heads downtown and to the train station. We booked expecting scenic oceans views and the hotel delivered on this quite well. The bathroom was small and didn't include the 'Heavenly Bathtub" that they advertise, which is available for an upcharge. Service was impeccable. Due to its secluded location from the city center, area restaurants are extremely limited, so expect to dine at the hotel. We had dinner on one of the top floors in the Chinnese restaurant which was okay - it wasn't fine dining, but fit the bill after a day of traveling. I had the pork and shrimp dumplings, which I preferred to the main dish. Overall, the price per night swayed from expensive to very affordable, so overall the stay was a good value. Also, you can hike nearby trails or walk along the seafront, which was nice,

Room Tip: Try to book a room overlooking the islands

This hotel is good if u have u own transport cos the location is quite far to town and no jr train but the hotel provide free shuttle service to the nearby jr station.
Room is very big but the room looks aged. Is convenient travel to miyajima cos can buy speedboat ferry ticket from 2 way Jpy 3200 per pax from 8:30 am until evening. The ferry take 30 minutes to miyajima.

We were impressed from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. The hotel itself was beautiful and the view from the breakfast buffet on the top floor was phenomenal! The staff was so warm and accommodating. They took so much pride in their jobs! We would definitely return.

Room Tip: I think they are all great! But if possible, a higher room facing west would give a great view!

If you are looking for a hotel to unwind and relax at the end of a long tiring day (which was the case with my group) then this hotel is the right place for you! Not only does it have its own spa, the rooftop bar of the hotel is also a great place to unwind and catch drinks (not expensive!).

While the rooms are mostly for sleeping and one cannot really laze there, the lobby is spacious and quiet enough if you want to just sit there for a while and read a book or catch up on emails (wi fi connectivity was in the lobby area only). As mentioned by other travelers, the rooms are not ornately decorated but rather spartan looking; however I did find mine comfortable and user friendly. Also my room overlooked the bay so the morning sunrise view was excellent.

Breakfast next morning was good (better than in some other hotels in Japan) and the staff is courteous enough to entertain specific requests.

I stayed here for only 1 night so those looking for longer stays in Hiroshima should browse through other reviews for a better opinion on connectivity to airport/ trains etc.

This hotel is too far out of town to consider a walk around after hours, however the view across the harbout to the lights of Hiroshima were fantastic.

Room was a little on the small side and bed a little too firm. Breakfast was as good as most Japanese quality hotels

OK as a stop over but would not stay there if you intend to spend a few days in Hiroshima

This is a reasonably new hotel, well appointed, spacious rooms with helpful staff. It allowed us a very comfortable stay. The hotel is out of central Hiroshima but right on the bay so it has a very pleasant outlook. I recommend it but with slight reservations because of the location.

Room Tip: Check that you room is facing the bay (water).

The Grand Prince is very much the resort it claims to be. The views are stunning, the available walks along the bay and through the woods are wonderful, and it's hard not to be taken by the splendor of the main lobby area.

If here for a wedding or something of the sort, you're likely in for a memorable and wonderful stay. Everyone else? Decide beforehand if you want to make a lot of sacrifices for the beauty - it may not be worth it to everyone.

The hotel is not terribly expensive, but the in-house restaurants certainly are, as is the provided breakfast buffet, and just about everything else. There is a small convenience store in the lobby with basic snacks and drinks along with other necessities.

A primary attraction is Miyajima island, which is a wonderful spot - but must be reached by boat. The hotel provides a boat that runs from morning till afternoon, but costs a bit. If you have a JR pass and want to go for free, the Hiroshima dock is a bit of a hike away but allows for the pass.

The hotel is very isolated from the main city but provides a free shuttle to Hiroshima station from morning until late afternoon.

The rooms are not large, but not tiny. They are decorated simply but have all the usual necessities provided, while the tv gets about 4 basic channels. Most include a wonderful view of the bay, but not all - so make sure you request one! There is no wifi in the rooms, but it works well in the lobby and second floor sitting areas.

If you have the misfortune of getting a room anywhere near other guests(especially with kids), you're not going to have a very quiet stay. The rooms are far from soundproof and you'll hear plenty of conversations, thunking around, and anyone walking the hall of your floor.

The staff are pleasant and helpful, with English speakers seemingly always near at hand. There is an in-house spa, a massage service, and other such features - but the associated prices kept us from trying any of it.

All in all, this makes a perfect destination wedding spot and likely a lovely getaway for those already in southern Japan, but for tourists looking to stretch their money and see all the Hiroshima sights? You may want to consider looking to one of the many other hotels clustered in the city center.
