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...

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,...

Stayed there for a couple of nights. It is centrally located, easy to find. It is close to the shopping street, the castle and Hirome market, and at a walking distance from the station. The staff was very helpful. The welcome drink was greatly appreciated given the hot and humid weather ! ;) Breakfast is simple, mostly Japanese but also...

An economy-sized hotel with very little extra space in the room, but about what you'd expect from a Japanese hotel with that price range. Relatively close to everything my group had planned, and no complaints about breakfast. The "air conditioner" dial near the bed automatically switches to "heater" in winter, so if it's too warm don't turn it on.

This is quite a decent little hotel centrally-located in Kochi City, perfectly convenient for access to the castle, Haramaya (sp?) Bashi and the covered shopping arcade. Lots of good pubs, restaurants, coffee shops (they open at 7.30 mostly) are just a step away. In the winter, the little garden is lit up with lights making for a beautiful night scene....

It's hard to complain about a well-located hotel with these prices including breakfast and a free welcome drink each day. You won't be confusing this with the Ritz: aside from the aforementioned perks, it's just your average business hotel with the usual smallish bathroom and decent, but not outstanding amenities. But the perks and the price make it pretty irresistible.

Service at the Welcome hotel in Kochi was really great. I almost can't believe that we got a double room including breakfast here for as little as 5000 yen. And this was a good room with a view - we could actually see the castle from our room! Kochi was much nicer than we expected and therefore we really wanted...

Being that the room only cost 5000 yen a night we were a little skeptical about what type of room we would be getting. To our surprise it was great. It was enough for two of us to stay comfortably. Price included a welcome drink and breakfast the following morning. For the budget traveler its a great deal.
