Please tell me about your recommended hotels in Kochi.

I’m thinking to take a paid holiday the end of march to travel to Kochi with my friend. We’d like to visit some places associated with Ryoma Sakamoto. Our budget is about 15,000yen per person. Can anyone recommend a hotel which has only a few rooms and provides us great and warm hospitality?

This hotel is located in the middle point between Kouchi jyo and Harimaya bashi

Hello. This hotel is located in the centre and it’s convenient. You can walk to Kouchi jyo and Harimaya bashi. The condition of the roads in the side of Pacific Ocean in Shikoku isn’t great and there are a few alternative roads. I think you have to travel by car but your trip will be turned out to the disaster if you get involved in a traffic jam. I recommend that you travel always earlier.

Convenient

I recommend Richmond Hotel Kouchi. This is the only hotel located inside of arcade in Kouchi prefecture. Hirome market and Kouchi jyo are within walking distance so the location of this hotel is very convenient for sightseeing. Breakfast buffet is very delicious and you can eat many carefully-cooked dishes with local ingredients. This hotel is good value for money and you’ll be satisfied with your stay. I recommend it.

Clean and good location!

When it comes to Kouchi, it’s Sunday market and Hirome market. This hotel has an entrance inside of arcade and you can enjoy walking in the arcade. It has good access wherever you want to go. This hotel is located a bit far from the station but clean and cheap. I want to stay there again.

A kind hotel

The price is relatively expensive if you want to stay at a hotel or Japanese style hotel with less guestrooms. I recommend the business hotel which belongs to Nishitetsu group from Kyushu. The staffs take good and kind care of guests if you ask them some questions. This hotel is located next to Harimaya bashi so it’s convenient for sightseeing.

It’s convenient because it’s close to Hariyamabashi

This hotel is near Hariyamabashi and relatively new. Although there are long-established luxury hotels such as Shinhankyu Hotel Kouchi, I think this hotel is better in terms of the location because it is located very close to the station of Tosa denki train. You can see the train operating slowly from the room in the side of crossing road.

The staffs take good care of guests

This hotel is located in front of Kouchi station and has good access to transportation. When I traveled to Kouchi, I stayed at this hotel and I liked it because of the convenient location. In addition, the staffs take good care of guests and I had good impression. I recommend this hotel even though this is not what you are actually looking for.

A long-established hotel with great view

This is a long-established hotel. Although the facilities aren’t brand new, you feel tradition and history. I think you can enjoy eating local seafood such as Ise lobster. The view from the guestroom is great and you’ll have great stay.

A city typed hotel which is convenient for sightseeing

This hotel is convenient for sightseeing and the room is bright. Even single room has a spacious bed and you can spend comfortable stay at this hotel. I think it will be within your budget even if each of you stays at individual rooms. You cannot really get nice service with 15,000yen but it is possible here.

A hot spring hotel near Kouchi jyo

I pick up this hotel in Kouchi city because you want to stay at some places associated with Ryoma Sakamoto. Sansuien is a hot spring hotel which used to be a house from Yamauchi family of former Tosa feudal lord. It takes 10mins by car from JR Kouchi station and it takes 10mins by foot to go to Kouch jyo from this hotel. It’s nice to stay at the hotel associated with Yamauchi family of former feudal lord in order to visit the places associated with Ryoma Sakamoto.

cheap

This hotel is cheap and relatively clean. You can see how clean this hotel is on their website. It’s so nice to have free breakfast. Downtown and supermarket are nearby. I think Katsurahama, Ryugadou and Anpanman museum are relatively close to this hotel. Hirome market is also nearby.

I stayed at this hotel more than 20 times!

This city typed hotel is in Nangoku city. If you rent a car, you can easily drive to Anpanman museum so I think that it’s convenient location. Room service is available. There is a hotel with a hot spring nearby, which opened their business after this hotel. However, I recommend this hotel because your request is staying at a city typed hotel.

The house site of Ryoma Sakamoto

Although there are only 44 rooms, this is a good hotel for those who are big fan of Ryoma Sakamoto and who want to explore the places associated with him. There are some facilities of Ryoma even inside of the hotel so it’s a perfect hotel for Ryoma lovers. You can eat fresh seafood from Kuroshio Current and rich food from the mountain. The dishes are made from seasonal ingredients and decorated in colorful and elegant ways. I hope you enjoy eating local and traditional dishes from Tosa as well as new dishes which are created from the traditional dishes.

Sunday market in front of this hotel

It takes about 10mins by foot from Kouchi station to get to this hotel but it’s convenient for sightseeing as Harimaya bashi and Kouchi jyo are nearby. Sunday market is held in front of this hotel so I recommend that you wake up earlier to take a walk. Many famous goods are sold at Sunday market so be careful to buy a lot. The staffs at the front desk are kind and waitresses at breakfast buffet are also very kind.
