My son and I were in Tokyo for 2 days and stayed here for one night, "just because". I'm so glad we did. The whole thing, from walking in the door to checking out, was different than anything I have ever experienced. The capsules were far more comfortable than I was expecting, and the whole bathing experience was far less... More

my boyfriend and I wanted a unique Tokyo experience. We were able to each get a capsule at the steal of a price of $22 each a night on Expedia. We were excited because it was only 2 blocks from the Robot restaurant as well. Overall for price and location it was worth it, but maybe not for everyone (... More

Visited this hotel with a mate on our first 2 nights in Tokyo. Great value for money and an awesome cultural experience. The capsules are very modern and clean. I was actually surprised how pleasant the stay was. The spa is so so relaxing and something different to see

This is my 1st time to try capsule, so I dont expect too much because I am on budget. I didnt make any reservation and walk in to try my luck. They charge me 4500yen per night, and I am quite happy with the price. Location of this capsule is next to Best Western Hotel, it is about 5-8mins walk... More

Staying in a Pod Hotel when visiting japan is a MUST ! And this has been one of the best experiences I've ever done so far ! The hotel is amazingly well located and Shinjuku and the metro is a small 5-10 minute walk away ! Moreover, the hotel is always spotless and the pods are quite comfortable. I would... More

My first time staying at this capsule hotel gave me a lasting and memorable experience. I stayed for a total of 5 nights. Although I've heard of not so good reviews, somehow I felt that I should try it myself. The first day I arrived at the bus station at Shinjuku, I had a hard time locating this hotel and... More

Stayed here for three nights before the 2015 Tokyo Marathon. The guy working at the reception desk was rude and absolutely useless. Did not explain the rules clearly to me, charged me extra to leave my bags in The open space bag area, spoke abruptly and made me find my own reservation paper as he couldn't read English well enough....

So, I told people I was staying in a capsule hotel for the experience...the facial reactions in response were enough to make me question my choice. My friend and I had gone out that night in the area. We ended up coming in around 1 in the morning. When we checked in we had no problem at all. The man... More
