The only issue I had with the stay was checking in. The hotel does not have a front desk and so a self check in is required. The system was not working properly and the hotel faculty was slow in responding. We did not get to check in until 2hrs later. The facility was excellent though.
The parking was hard to find and they only seem to have one free space each day - we were lucky. Very confusing directions for that and the self check-in. Otherwise it was fine, in a good location, comfortable beds. If they can improve those points it's a lovely central place to stay in Kamakura. No view but we were out anyway!
Check in was no problem and the facilities were all new and clean. The only thing I didn’t enjoy was the first night on arrival, the pillows were a little damp smelling, perhaps the room hadn’t been aired since the last guests or a problem during cleaning as it’s difficult during the humid months in Japan. This was the only minor thing I found, everything else was very clean, comfortable and the hotel itself very convenient. I’d happily return in the future
