This place was everything I had expected it to be. Just off of Yasukuni Dori, which I guess is in the red light district, but close enough to the main street where people don't harass you. It is also close to Shinjuku station. Staff was fine. Lockers and bath area were all clean. There was a mix of foreigners and... More

Decided to try the capsule hotel on our last night in Tokyo out of curiosity. Very close to Shinjuku station (5-10 minutes walk) near the lively district of Kabukicho. Reception is on the 4th floor where you are required to take off your shoes and put it into a shoe locker with a key. Hand the key to the reception... More

Clean capsule hotel with public bathing facilities. This is a busy place but there always appeared to be sufficient space when I needed a shower. Whilst not spacious, the capsules were adequate for me even though I am 185cm tall. Depending on who is in the capsules nearby, it can be a bit noisy. Not normally from loud conversations or...

I mainly wanted to stay in a capsule hotel just to say that I had done it, and I'm really glad I only stayed here one night. I walked around the block about 5 times before I found it - there is no external signage, I just caught an elevator up to see if it was there. The staff were... More

For everyone who visits Tokyo for the first time, this is high recommended place which will contribute your complete experience in Japan. Cleanliness, facilities, comfort is at excellent level, and location is very suitable for first visit, especially because of Shinjiku train station nearby.

Two days and treated rudely. The capsule was filthy and when I asked if someone was able to clean it he rudely interior the guy I was talking to and said we are full. You can't change rooms. Me didn't even listen before rudely stating a comment. Wonder how to upload photos of the room. So dirty.

Keyword - "comfortable sleep" - and this is actually what you can't expect from a capsule hotel. However, what you could have when staying here is really an enjoyable public bath area, with sufficient hot water and very relaxing sauna and rest area. In the early morning at 6 am, you will find lots of Japanese salary-men or students take... More

I stayed here for my first night in Tokyo, just to try this truly Japanese experience. I have always wanted to try it and I wasnt disappointed. They are super organized! They have a pretty cool shower area, with hot and cold Jacuzzis and random seats where you shower yourself?! The pods are actually quite spacious, but they dont block... More

First of all. I've heard quite a lot about Capsule Hotels. After all, I felt I should give it a try at least once in my life. First: The Kuyakushomae Capsule Hotel is perfectly organized and from the moment you're entering the lobby on the 3rd floor, everything is perfectly planned by the staff. I arrived pretty late around 10PM... More

This is more of a cultural experience more than anything. For the uninitiated, you may feel awkward sleeping in a very tight space which I found quite warm so I took off my shirt to feel a bit cooler. Strangely, I did not find any airconditioning controls inside the capsule. Another inconvenience is that it does not offer wifi and... More
