We do not normally stay in hotels opting for local apartments in most locations. However, in Kochi, we could not have done better than the Hotel Minatoya. It is so close to JR Station Kochi and the bus station and local trams.

On booking we were not able to book a non-smoking room (not unusual for business hotels in Japan) but sent a request subsequent and this was met. Thank you!

Check-in was straight forward and staff have enough English to understand each other (we are just sorry that our Japanese is much worse then their English). The room itself was well appointed and clean. We arranged breakfast at an additional and reasonable cost. We always choose the Japanese choice and were not disappointed. It was fresh and good.

On two days we used the FREE cycles that are available - what an additional bonus. We also were happy to find washing machines and dryers in the basement/carpark for a very reasonable cost (washing JPY 200, drying JPY 100). The WIFI was excellent.

We were walking Pilgrims on the 88 Temple Track. This was a wonderful base. Each evening after a long days walk there was the public bath (gender separate as usual) and sauna (only for men - sorry ladies) - clean hot and cold baths, an absolute delight At the entry to the hotel there is a place set out for pilgrims to clean their staff (Kongozue) and take care of it. Thank you for this.

As independent travellers we are rarely this impressed with hotel service. At every step we felt cared for.

Well done, Hotel Minatoya
