This is a business-oriented hotel without many tourist services. The lobby is small and sparsely-furnished, and there is no on-site restaurant except for a limited breakfast menu. Even so, we enjoyed our stay there as tourists. The front-desk staff is friendly and tries to be helpful, but some of them are not proficient in English. There is usually an English-speaking...

The Hotel is a short walk from the station in the covered shopping area. The rooms are nice, with a good strong shower. The staff were very friendly and efficient The castle is very close and there are shops all around the hotel. Highly Recommended

Good position, in a shopping arcade, short walk from JR station,nice staff, good room BUT had to accept a smoking room, in this age why smoking is allowed in hotel rooms surprises me. I had forgotten how unpleasant sleeping in a room like this was.

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...

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...

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.

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.
