When I first booked this hotel, I was a bit worried, as it seems like it is a bit far away from Kochi station. But soon, as I walked along, and as soon as I reached the hotel and was given a local town map, I realised that the location is very good. It is near to Hirome market, a walking distance to Kochi castle and also, if you happen to be here during Sunday, the Sunday morning market is just a few steps away from their main entrance. Breakfast, though simple, was very delicious, especially their rice cake, super super delicious, wifi was good and room was clean. Though the front desk was not able to communicate with good ENglish, nevertheless, they tried their best to assist and with Google translate, language becomes easier. I would like to specially highlight the front desk in charge person on the first nite I checked in, Mr. Shinmichi Yokogawa, who had been giving me some assistance as I left something at Takamatsu hotel and he has made a few calls to help with the arrangement. Appreciate his help and positive and always ready to help attitude. Thanks, Yokogawa-San. Wifi is working effectively in the room. One more highlight, they provide a free drink in the evening to room guest, beer, tea...…
This is good for group people! Because you can go to anywhere easily and even good for business people, too! Welcome drinks are good and you can enjoy with your friends at the restaurant You can relax and visit some places very easily!
This hotel is located in the centre of town. Parking is 700 yen and is a short and easy walk away. Check in was easy. The gentleman who checked us in had good English and was able to give us some suggestions for places to eat. We each got a free welcome drink (beer) which was a nice surprise. We walked to the castle and to the shopping street easily. We had a twin room which had lots of space for a Japanese hotel. Breakfast was OK.
Location makes it easy to walk to places like Hirome, right where the Sunday market is as well. Close to the main street, with convenience stores nearby too. Good selection for breakfast, and rooms are functional.
We paid less than $70 a night including welcome drink（you can order most of the drink from the menu including beer) and full buffet breakfast. Front desk staff are full of passion and efficiency, able to communicate in English. 3 minute walk to the famous Hirome Market (a must visit for all visitors), while the Sunday market (over 300 years, one of the biggest in Japan）just in front of the hotel。 Room was reasonable size with everything we needed, free wifi, stayed 2 nights and will surely stay with Welcome hotel if we come back to Kochi. Thank you for the great job of their staff.
