Score from 624 reviews Good
The atmosphere was very sterile/futuristic which was fun. The pods looked great, the whole building was clean.
The door to the pod is a blind and so noise travels very easily. It's similar to sleeping in a huge space age dorm so if you can settle with that then you'll have fun. I wouldn't stay more than 1 night.
Its not bad. The pillow I got was a rock. Also you hear everything from the other pods. We only stayed one night but if you stay more than one night you have to check out and then back in. But if you want cheap and just need a bed with no thrills this is a good option.
The pillow was really bad. Used the blanket as s pillow.
The beds were very comfortable and the staff were efficient.
Leaving the bags at the front felt a bit clumsy as we had to go back and forth to get things out of them, but they were safe there.
why everyone should check out everyday?that was really inconvenience.
-The whole experience and ambiance -Staff had some good tips and knew a lot on what to do around. Good brochures and maps! -Mattresses wider than expected -One power outlet available in a capsule (bring your own Japanese adaptor though!) -Relatively clean facilities: amazing showers and organic soaps. Included: two towels, a toothbrush with some toothpaste and a pyjama dress that everybody has to wear. -Cheap price because it wasn't in the much touristic season: between Y1900 and Y2900/ night (=15 and 25 euros/night). -Amazing location: right in front of the shijo dori street (filled with all brands, from Starbucks to Lacoste) and nichiki market. Easy access from Kyoto station with buses or subway (Kawaramachi, exit 10!). Great place to find local restaurants close-by.
-Hard pillow, filled with beans or rice (?): Japanese style! Did not cause much problems for me as I prefer to sleep without pillow anyway. -No storage within the capsule: only two mini places big enough to put your key on. Don't think about bringing your purse with you in the capsule, unless you want to have it laying on your legs during the night! -Lounge not so cosy: need sofas or soft chairs instead of hard plastic ones. -Ofuro not working: the hot bath that exists behind the showers is there but is not working.... what a shame! -Lockers: I had read about the fact that they are small. Indeed they are not big, but my bag (a big Longchamp foldable one) still fit inside. Not suited for luggage. -JR-PASS HOLDERS: Kyoto is quite big as it is the size of Paris. However, the JR only goes around the southern part of the city. If you want to travel to all famous temples and shrines, be prepared to use bikes or actually, buses. One bus trop costs Y230 but you can buy a day pass that costs Y500!
convenience cleanliness cheap more room in capsule than first thought
needed a bit more space for luggage, otherwise great
Design is impressive, very helpful staff, very clean, safe and convenient. Great for solo female travellers
No large luggage lockers, be careful the sleep system wakes you
Have to check back in everyday
Helpful staff. Clean bedding. Individual enclosed shower cubicles (which lead to a shared onsen). Toiletries provided. Close to Gion area. Plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. Keyed lockers for shoes and personal items. Tip: If you arrive to Kyoto Station, still have a while before check-in, and want to sightsee, use the "Carry Service" in the station. This convenient service will deliver your suitcase to your hotel (if it is a participant), for a few hundred ¥. It also has a holding service, for when your suitcase doesn't fit into available coin locker. Plus there is a courier service, so you can send parcels of souvenirs etc. to other destinations.
Expect to hear noise - not a dislike, just a warning. Just one of the drawbacks of a capsule hotel. Capsule bed does not have climate control. Felt hot and stuffy. Ended up sleeping with head to the entrance for some "fresh air" - not much relief as general areas were heated for winter. Lockers in the bathroom/onsen not large enough for medium/large suitcases. TIP:Take out required night clothes/clothes for the next day. Lock your suitcase that is to be left in lobby. Hotel does not facilitate suitcase returns to Kyoto train station with the "Carry Service".
Reality met expectations and advertising. My first time in a capsule and I was worried about claustrophobia, but the capsule was spacious and long enough for tall people. Great bathroom. Bathroom is on a different floor from beds but plenty of toilets on all floors
The large bath in the women's bathroom was out of order. I think some capsule hotels have a more comfortable lounge but it was adequate.
very clean and futuristic. Close to downtown, and half hour walk from Kyoto Station
You have to make check out-in everyday. No space for lugagge, which is left on the lobby.
Excellent location as it is close to many of the areas in Kyoto that you would wish to visit and for those further away it is close to all the transport you will need. Staff friendly and helpful. Facilities really clean and easy to use.
The capsules were very hot and made it difficult to sleep - there was no ability to reduce the temperature at all.
Clean, spacious, quiet environment
locker and bathroom is far from the capsule
the baggages at the ground floor, capsules at ninth floor and toiltets at third floor. not very comfortable
The facilities are clean and efficient. Overall the experience was great, been to older capsule hotels, this was the nicest one.
If you stay more than a day, you have to check out and check in again. Understandable but could be more effective than that method.
Everything was very modern, clean and well organized. Although it was my first time in a capsule hotel and I don't speak japanese, I had no trouble understanding how everything worked.
Bed a bit hard and capsules get hot during the night
The spaceship-like capsule bed. It was a new experience which made me feel as if I were in those sci-fi movies. Super cool! The capsule bed, as small as it looked, was surprisingly spacious and comfortable.
Locker and shower room were located on different floors to where the bedrooms were, making it so troublesome to change and whatnot. Also, there was no vending machines that sell snacks (only drinks). So, if you get hungry at night or simply want to have some supper, you'll either have to get it before you check-in or go through the hassle of changing out of their bedroom robe in to your own clothes.
Inexpensive lodgings and fantastic staff. Great there are now electrical outlets in the capsule. Wifi in capsule worked well. Well recommended for a night
With 25 people in a room, there's always a snorer... bring ear plugs.
The logistics of staying there were a bit cumbersome. We were given lockers on the same floor as the showers (different floor as the beds) but they were too small to hold our big backpacks so we needed to unpack what we needed for the night in the lounge/lobby, then bring that stuff up to a locker then repack in the lounge in the morning.
Great design for unique concept Staff was exceptionally good in knowing our capsule number after handing out the keys once Breakfast vouchers handed out If you are interested to try out a capsule hotel this is a great option - try the wake up system
The comfort of the capsule was good, but the heating stayed on during the night, which made it hard to really sleep comfortably. If they would just turn it off during the night or even slightly cool the space, it would have been great. Limit the luggage you take here!
Great location. Fun feeling on being in a space shuttle in the center of Kyoto.
It was a fun thing to try. The place looks like on the photos! Location in 'downtown Kyoto'
For the price this place is great. It is in a good location. Note though that it is in the main shopping area of Kyoto and not near the Kyoto Station. The capsules are roomy and the beds quite comfortable. Staff are polite and friendly and speak English. A unique experience.
The lockers for bags in the changers are not big enough for a reasonably sized suitcase. This means some people bring their bags into the capsule area. Unfortunately they also go through their bags in there which is quit loud.
Good location Clean facility Cool experience
Too dry, almost can not breath during night... No window
