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

I came here one night in December as I had a flight early in the morning and wanted to experience capsule in Tokyo. The guy at the reception desk (his name was "Kubota" if I remember well) basically could not read our names on passport and refused to let us check in because he could not manage to find our...

I stayed one night in this capsule hotel. I reserved a capsule for newly renovated women room so shower room were very clean and nice. But capsule itself was old and not comfortable. Up on arrival, we had to deal with this rude old man who shouldnt be working in service industry. We were already so exhausted from that trip... More

My boyfriend and I wanted to experience a night in a capsule hotel so we booked this hotel. Understandably, we were on separate floors as this is Japanese culture and were were fine with that. You cannot check in until 4pm and it is quite difficult to find. On arrival, we were given our keys and assigned a capsule. We... More

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.

Staying in Shinjuku

Neighborhood Profile
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.
