Spent a couple of nights in this nice hotel, located inside the shopping street of Kochi, at a walking distance from the station. It is modern, with a very welcoming staff (with a specific mention for the kindness of the breakfast restaurant's team). Room size is functional, as in many places in Japan, but the amenities are present. Wifi is... More

In terms of its location and amenities this is as good as you could hope for in a city like Kochi. Great downtown spot, attractive interiors, friendly staff, English signage everywhere - I'd definitely stay here again. Compared to the other hotels we've been staying in in Shikoku this is very much a cut above, and very good value too.

Super nice hotel and Kochi, and I can understand why it is rated #1. Our room was HUGE, certainly by Japanese standards, and large by American standards. We had two comfortable beds plus a sofa on which one could sleep if needed. Large flat screen TV, free Wi-Fi, desk, decent sized bathroom with lots of amenities, and the hotel opens... More

There's nothing actually wrong with the Richmond hotel. Nice staff, reasonable price, central location etc etc But voted #1 ? I'm confused. There was nothing special here that would make me think the hotel was anything other than adequate to good. Nothing bad per se but nothing that would make it stand out in any way either. The staff were... More

I found lots of business people checking in when I do so. Must be a good and value for money choice. Located right on a shopping alley, very convenient. Rooms are clean, tidy and relatively spacious. However, parking are not inside or next to the hotel building.

Hotel is about 15 mins by walk from JR Kochi and less than 10 mins by taxi. It is located right along the main shopping district but as it is not an isolated building while walking along the shopping district, you may miss it. The hotel followed strict check in time as we arrived slightly before noon and the rooms... More

The hotel is actually located within the shopping arcade. It is very convenient and within walking distance to attractions in the city including the the food market and hundreds of shops and restaurants. We booked a Hollywood Twin Room according to the introduction. It was a good choice, guess you may find other type of rooms a bit cramped.

About 10 mins walk from JR station. Lobby entrance quite surprising - directly in the heart of a pedestrian arcade (shops, restaurants, Hirome market). Near Sunday market. Easy walk to Kochi castle. We felt this location was very good. (Not easy to define "the place to be" in Kochi.) Well-designed room layout (Hollywood twin), feels less cramped than a lot... More
