Yes the decor is dated, yes it does look a bit like it used to be grander and has fallen into genteel disuse, but everything works and boy do they try to make you feel welcome. And the food in the evening is superb. I spent two nights there, stuck in my room with a great view onto the river whilst the typhoon hit Kochi, so had lunch there too. I was lucky as my room had such a view, not all of them do and it was quiet, large, with one of those bathroom in a box you get in some hotel. There is a small 7 eleven next door and they have a gift shop and ice cream parlour in the hotel, as well as some conference room and karaoke lounge. Lunch and breakfast are buffet style, so you are bound to find something to make you happy even if the setting for lunch and breakfast is a bit school hall like. For each evening meal In the restaurant upstairs, I was given an English version of the menu (how they did it, not sure, google translate?) printed nicely and prettily just for me. The seared bonito (a Kōchi speciality) is to die for, they even put up a demonstration for the kids they took me along to of how the chef prepares it. Not sure if they do that all the time or if that was just to entertain the guest stranded by the typhoon. But even without any other common language than google translate and one lovely young girl who spoke some English and was roped in to serve me the first day, they were all delightful and trying very very hard to give the best service possible in trying circumstances which as far as I am concerned is far more important and telling than faded wall paper (which in this warm and humid weather probably fades within a couple of months). And then the manager even drove me to the train station. As it turns out the location is also very convenient if there is no typhoon.

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Tosa Goyen, a lovely ryokan (traditional Japanese hotel) conveniently located in Kochi, only a short walk from the station. Very good wi-fi and hot spring baths available. Wonderful staff and an incredible breakfast buffet! Highly recommended.

I enjoyed hot spring and good lunch in this Japanese style inn. It’s traditional Japanese inn, but you can also enjoy only hot spring and lunch even though you’ll not stay this hotel. Personally, I love this hot spring so much!!!

Just a couple of blocks from the train station. A very nice hotel. WI-FI in all areas of the hotel. I had a tatami room with western low beds. The room came with shower. They have a public furo for those wanting to take a full bath and soaking in hot water. Breakfast was included in my plan. Great selections including made-to-order musubis. Only problem the musubi selections were written in Japanese. A mini-van will take you to the train station. The building abutting the hotel is a large hotel with a 7-eleven. They have everything except alcohol because the store was part of the hospital. Easy walking distance from hotel to all the major sites such as the shopping arcades, Hirome Market, and Kochi Castle.

Located conveniently less than 10min walk to JR Kochi Station this Hotel offers traditional Japanese (ryokan) style sleeping on futons on the tatami floor. The rooms were a bit tired and need of some new wallpaper or pictures to hide some marks but the onsen (hot baths) and endless plates of delicious local food (dinner & breakfast included) made up for it. 😄

My travel company arranged for me to stay in this hotel on both 10 & 12 May 2013. During my 1st day there, after I stepped in the room I found that the room was very hot and the air-con was not working. I reported the problem to the hotel staff before I went for dinner and was told that they will look into the problem, but after my dinner I found that no action was taken and the room was hot like "sauna". I requested my tour leader to talke to the hotel staff again. The answer provided was they can't do anything and advised me to open the window for the night. But after I opened the window, I found that this hotel building was very close to the next building, so no wind at all. I was very upset and insisted for a solution from the hotel staff, finally they gave me a fan for the night. Anyway, I was unable to sleep for the whole night as the fan was noisy. For the 2nd night there, the air-con was working but the air kept flow directly to the bed due to the bed was placed directly in front of the air-con. I felt very cold and even I adjusted the air-con to the lowest, I was unable to sleep. Beside that the blanket also made me felt itch all over. Another sleepless night for me again! I had very bad impression about this hotel and will never stay there again.

Very nice atmosphere, one English speaking person available. Some rooms are older and smell to much after smoking in room. Nice unsen, excellent meal, excellent breakfast; price/ quality: a little bit high.
