Like many reviewers here, I picked the capsule hotel for the cultural experience and the amazing budget price (I paid about £22 for the night). Just a short walk from Shinjuku station and right next to some of Tokyo’s busiest nightlife, the experience was a good one and I’m really glad I did it. Here’s the process, if you’re unsure... More

In a city well known for being expensive, Shinjuku Kuyakushomae Capsule Hotel is the perfect cheap choice if you don't wanna give up comfort and cleanliness while still remaning in the heart of the city. It is located about seven minutes walking from JR Shinjuku station, at the entrance of Kabuki-cho, the (tame) red light district of Tokyo. Location is... More

This was a surprisingly good experience. Here’s how - Capsules are roomier than I’d imagined. I couldn’t really stretch all the way out (granted I’m 2m tall), but didn’t really have to curl up in much of a ball either. - Facilities are better than expected. Nice lounge area with big screen TV and solid wifi. Also has a spa... More

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 Shinjuku

Neighborhood Profile
Shinjuku
Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and contains the busiest train station in the world. To the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office at its center. To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household. It is quite famous as a venue for cherry-blossom viewing in March and April. In Shinjuku, many restaurants operate all night, and districts such as Omoide Yokocho (Memory Lane) or Shinjuku Golden Machi have back streets filled with tiny restaurants and bars that reflect each owner’s unique taste and style.
