We tried this capsule hotel for one night and that's it. Was it fun and engaging? Maybe. Was the location strategic for sightseeing? Yes. Do you get your money's worth? No, its actually expensive compare to local ryokans around shinjuku. This place is worth a try. Stay for one night no more.

This capsule hotel is perfect located for exploring Tokyo night life. However, you can find better places for exploring the capsule experience itself. If staying more than one night you will have to remove all your things from the capsule from 10 til 16.00. Womens department does not have a public bath, only shower rooms. Mens department has public bath.

I stayed at this capsule hotel because I wanted to try this "typical Japanese" thing for myself. I choose this hotel since it made the best impression of all the Tokyo Capsule hotels my booking site listed. Cons: It was hard to find. When I found the right elevator the only Latin text was "Hotel Desk". The staff was compared... More

A really amazing Japanese experience. They are really comfortable and the price for men is really convenient. The spa/onsen they have it's absolutely cool and refreshening. Even though you must know that everyday you will have to check out at 10 and re-check in at 4 pm.

I stayed in this hotel for two nights and it was better than expected. Facilities were clean, it was in a central near the Shinjuku station and various restaurants and convenience stores, it had a common room with a place to make meals, and the staff spoke English. My main issue is that it is next to a lot of... More

I enjoyed my stay-but.....If I had not brought ear plugs I am sure it would have been a nightmare. Reasons... 1. First night guy next to me snoored from midnight until 8AM. 2. Second night a group of Chinese tourists came in late and spoke for an hour before banging their ways into their cells. The cell is made of... More

Checking your shoes in and out is not a problem at all. Nothing is too much of a trouble for the friendly staff who spoke excellent English. Lots of backpackers from around the world (not Japanese salary man which I was expecting) and a great place to meet people. I recommend that you have a small bag handy to which... More

I booked this capsule hotel for the experience. Stayed here for one night before catching the train to Osaka. Overall the experience was pleasant but if you are a light-sleeper like me, you probably won't get a good night sleep as guest walk in and out all the time. Firstly, I found it difficult to find the entrance as the... More
