This was a great experience (first time in a capsule hotel). The sauna and the hot, hot, hot bath was awesome and I loved it so much. The staff were kind and helpful. The only thing that was not superb was that the lockers are tiny (could only fit my jacket and smallest handbag in there), so I had my... More

This was my first stay in a capsule hotel. I am a female and I went with another female so we stayed on the female floor in capsules next to each other. It was not very crowded. The capsule bed itself was very hard and it was very cold at night. The elevator smelled heavily of smoke. The onsen was... More

For a traveller keen to experiment all that is local, a trip to Tokyo must include at least one night at a capsule hotel. For this exact reason, during a recent business trip to Tokyo I decided to give it a go for one night, before moving in into a more appropriate hotel. Capsule Inn Kinshicho is probably as average...

It might not be the very best idea to type this review right now.. I'm currently lying in one of the capsules with a bit of jetlag. It is 2:30 AM and because of a large number of loudly snoring men around me I can't sleep on this extremely thin madras.. They not only snore some have vivid and bad... More

I was very happy here, the capsules did get a little warm at night with the curtain closed but that was my only concern. The staff are great, the sauna and bathrooms were good. This is one of the only capsule hotels that will allow women there. There amenities are a bit more restrictive than the mens though.

My first time staying in a capsule inn, it was definitely an interesting experience. First up, the experience is similar to living in a hostel dorm, except that the capsule is "cooler" as there's a TV and radio and lights. There is a ladies only floor on the top floor, in general the facility is pretty clean and well maintained.... More

We wanted to spend one night in a capsule during our trip to Japan just to try it and this was great. The location is goid, close to lots of resturants, the Tokyo sky tree, and a train station. There were a wide range of people staying at hotel, but it definitely had a backpacker/hostel vibe. The capsule itself was... More

Japanese Unique Style Hotel.A Capsule hotel is a unique style of accommodation in Japan, inspired by the pursuit of efficiency of space and functional comfort, originating from the adaptive, creative spirit of the Japanese mind. A typical Capsule Hotel is composed of two major sections; a public lounge space including bathing, and the other is a private space where the sleeping rooms (capsules) are arranged. The actual sleeping room is a capsule unit made of reinforced plastic and designed in the image of a jet airplane's cockpit. In the capsule unit, all the required amenities are provided; TV, radio, alarm clock, adjustable lighting... almost everything is provided! Every device is within your reach and you can control everything in a sleeping position. For the numerous business people working hard until after midnight and who miss their train, and for all the people coming to Tokyo on a short business trip, or holiday; young and old, men and women, a wide range of people stay at Capsule hotels in Tokyo.
