I was here for one night. And in spite of having hundreds of people around, i felt the loneliest ever. They say, Capsule is an expereince, it indeed was. I mostly saw Japanese solo travellers here, who kept to them selves. There was a long que in the reception, and later they gave me a key to my locker, which... More

I loved it. My friend did not. Here's the sitch: When you arrive you take your shoes off immediately & put them in a shoe locker. Then you check in and trade the shoe locker key for a towel, a pair of pod hotel pyjamas, and a wrist band with a barcode, clothes locker key and room number on it.... More

I just arrived in Japan after three months in Vietnam, and I arrived in Japan during a three day weekend. I checked for hotels from Sendai to Osaka and nothing. Found this hotel and the did have open pods. Got one from Sat and Sun night. Staff are super friendly and helpful, and hotel is clean. They have everything you... More

Um...an experience. I saw it as a kind of purgatory for the souls of lost Japanese businessmen, while my friend called it "the closest I've ever been to being institutionalized, or possibly in a morgue." The two of us late 30something men had booked a Japanese "capsule hotel," just because we had heard of them and were insanely curious about... More

It was a good experience to stay in a Capsule Hotel that was very Japanese in its feel. The capsule was also not as bad as I expected it to be. However, this is good to experience for probably just one night as I did but not for one's whole stay in Japan.

do yourself a favout and stay away from this capsule hotel, or any other capsule hotel for that mattar. One thing this hotel does not tell you is that there is a curfew on all guests, and once you entered the hotel after a certain hour at nogth you cannot get out again until the morning. Maybe it suits the... More

I had a spare night in Tokyo and decided to give a capsule hotel a go. Some of the reviews here already mention a bit of a "prison inmate" experience. I completely agree. It all has a very 'rank and file' feel to it. It's a very Japanese experience, but to be honest I reckon there'd be better Capsule hotels... More

A real cultural insight to stay here but if you're tall it's pretty uncomfortable in the capsule. It's a nightmare to find from the directions they provide, I fear some of the detail may have been lost in translation - sort your route before you get there. It's right in the middle of the red light district as well so... More

I stayed for a night at this hotel, wanting to try out the unique capsule experience after hearing about it from websites and friends. Logically it certainly isn't a traveller's first choice but it had a mystical, mysterious feel to it in spite of its obvious physical restrictions. My first impression was that the hotel was rather old; it had... More

A friend and I were visiting Japan for a week and I really wanted to try this unique style of accomodation. I had never been to Japan before, and stayed here my first night, so as far as culture shocks go, it should have been a big one. The location is very convenient, a short walk from the JR Shinjuku...
