3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2016

Kyoseikan's number four rating in Kochi convinced me to splash out during our recent stay. Our standard Japanese room was spacious and well-appointed, and the staff were helpful (little English, but it didn't matter). But that's where it ended. The foyer was large but quite tacky, with beer exhibits among other things. Breakfast, which was included, was certainly not up to the standard we had come to expect in Japan. In fact, it was poor enough that we didn't bother eating it after the first day. The worst thing by far, however, was that we were on the hotel's non-smoking floor, but I spent the whole time consuming anti-histamines to counter the effect of the smoke. The bedding and flooring didn't smell of smoke, so I suspect it was coming through the air conditioning. This ruined what would have otherwise been an okay stay. More

This hotel was good enough for the emperor of Japan when he visits town, so it was more than good enough for us. Jyoseikan is an elegant Japanese style hotel/ryokan in a large modern building. It has spacious tatami rooms with service fit for an emperor. The hot baths on the roof are excellent. Rates included an amazing dinner delivered to our room as well as breakfast.

Access is easy from the railroad station by the tram that departs in front of the station. Transfer at the Harimayabashi stop to the west line and get off at the Masugata stop in front of the hotel.
