Score from 341 reviews Very good
Comfortable and clean pod. The shower room was great, the shower was one of the best I have ever used. Great location and good value. Would have stayed longer (although apparently you have to check out and back in everyday)
The staff were unfriendly and quite obiopsy bored
Everything about this place, it was great.
My brother and I stay at Kyoto station for 2 nights which a bit quite and all we have those expensive food area, and we move one night at nine hours hotel, with just a min walk to the crowd area, full of cheap shopping clothing, food, and so many choice as well of the Japanese traditional snack food
There is no TV that we can watch on the lounge area, and do not have a space like kitchen when u hungry, u have to eat outside not in the hotel
This hotel is perfectly made for staying for 1 night, u`ll be provided everything u need before u go to bed and really spacious capsule to sleep. Read the description of the hotel it is completely true.
weak sound insulation between capsules
I read about 9Hours on many websites. They suggested it is probably the best capsule hotel in Japan. The quality of beds was sure very good, and the experience is truly unique. There is no similar place anywhere else.
Some facilities were not working (such as the bath), and having different floors for males and females made it not so comfortable to move around the hotel. I thought the snacks were included in the price but they're not (well, I actually couldn't believe I would have snacks too for such a price). I read many comments saying the hotel is very clean, but it wasn't so clean. The bed was, the facilities were not.
Location and cleanliness
location, staff speaking good English (a rarity in Japan)
Sound penetration. If they could invest in sound-proof doors for the capsules - I'd stay with them all the time
Capsule hotel better than the average. Very fresh place! Good location if you want to be in the heart of Kyoto.
A bit far from the station. Not suitable for more than one night as it is required to check out every morning. Hot bath was out of order.
There is a locker area for organizing your suitcase and walking back and forth in the morning. However, some travelers kept their suitcase next to them by the sleeping quarter. I was woken up in the morning by constant walking back and forth, zipping and unzipping, dropping or closing containers.
Excellent design, Reasonable price (I got a great deal from Booking.com for just 2500 per night), near a big main street beside Kamo River. The best capsule hotel I've ever slept in in Japan.
I wish there is a lounge in every sleeping floor so that if I want to chat with my friends or families, I don't need to move floors.
Great Bed, very clean, very reasonable price.
Pool in bathroom "out of order", vending machine inaccessible, daily checkout required.
The design of the hotel!
Cool design and interesting concept.
Pillow was a bit hard and a little bit noisy trying to sleep.
Design, facilities, function, location
Could have been a bit cleaner Staff could have been a little more helpful
Everything was lovely. The staff speaks English, Japanese, and a few other languages. The capsules themselves are roomy in comparison to others I've stayed. It also feels like your're in a spaceship which is neat after coming back from a round of binge drinking. There were clean showers, lockers and other useful amenities in the locker room (be wary of some people blow drying their family jewels). It's well located close to shopping, drinking, eating, bus routes, and the subway. All in all if you're ridin' solo I'd recommend this place.
Not a damn thing. It was lovely in every way. Just a warning though the store just down the road next to the family mart isn't a comic book store. It's a type of porn shop. A mega one. If you get a bit tipsy or are into strange Japanese porn it could be good for a laugh or ... Anyways. The hotel itself was top notch
The rooms and the decoration.
The capsule and the room are comfortable and clean, and you can have a pleasant sleep. The facilities are hostel-type but new and clean as well. Towels, kimono and slippers are provided. The very friendly staff helped us to find a farmacy around, and filled in all the papers to send our luggage to Tokyo. The hostel is just a small walk to Gion and a lively area with bars, restaurants and amenities.
Lockers might be quite small if you use a big backpack. Anyway, you can leave it in the hall, where there are people 24h.
i like bed and value of money
no big space for lagged
Stayed with my children and my partner. We had a great time and were surprised by how large and comfortable the capsules were. Staff were friendly, bathroom and storage amenities were good.
A few noisy guests late at night (1:30am) rummaging through bags. As the lounge on the second floor was separated by gender, my children, partner and I couldn't hang out together. Only other space was downstairs and not conducive to relaxing after a day of exploring the city.
Staff, Design, Location, Cleanliness
Small locker space, no TV in capsule, temperature in capsule
The capsule The hotel looks like a ship, it's just amazing!
Separation of family
Very new place, clean, comfortable, good wifi, easy to access public transport and next to a convenience store. Provided sleep wear and towel.
Male lockers and toilets on the 9th floor. Small lockers for bags. Had to check out then back in again every day - they were apologetic about this though.
Clean design Good way finding system
Shower room too small Miss a proper resting zone Miss a bath
