Great Value and Professional Staff!”

Hotel Minatoya is great for what you are paying. The location is close to Kochi station, the staff is friendly and professional, and the onsen on the main floor is clean and a nice optional alternative to the more compact shower/bathroom in the rooms. This is my go-to place to stay when I am visiting Kochi.

Best accomodation for the price”

Great location : 5 minute walk from Kochi station Great room : I was upgraded to a spacious double room in off-season. Big t.v., a/c heater, windows open for ventilation, towels, yukata and toothbrushes and shaving all in room. Great amenities : open bath if shower is too small for you, relax lounge and massage chairs. Great staff : Very friendly and helped me when I had trouble using the remote for t.v. Clean and well maintained and I highly recommend the breakfast: choose Japanese or western. It doesn't get any better for the price.

Space for improvement.”

Negatives: - The Japanese room is undersized by European standards. There was barely the space for 2 futons and no place for luggage. A useless table & chair inside the wardrobe (!!!) The bath unit was tiny and no space for personal effects. - Accumulated dust in some places. - The area at night is completely dead. - The staff’s English is limited - No flexibility on breakfast. We asked to change some items we did not like (from the day before) and they would not accommodate us. Considering there are 3 ladies working for the breakfast it’s not so difficult to boil an egg instead of offering it raw. When we chose the western breakfast they wouldn’t let us take extra bread. Positives: - Close to the JR station, so it’s convenient if you plan on taking the train. - Charming traditional communal bath - Free massage beds - Parking available for a small fee - Free bicycle rental - The staff try hard to cope with foreign guests.
