I traveled India for a month so depending on your standards of living this place is not so bad. Yes people smoke right outside the rooms so it can seep through and make the room smell. Tv is only good if you speak Japanese. The owner creates his own prices per day which can go up to 25000 yen, which... More

Hotel Kawase is a pretty good capsule hotel and is perhaps the cheapest accommodation in the Asakusa area. The capsules were clean and comfortable. Highly recommended if you'r on a budget. The heating was also pretty good.

I stayed in three hostels (two, including this one, were capsules) in Tokyo. This was the cheapest. All three dorms were cramped and quite dated. This one was BY FAR the cheapest. If you need a base in Tokyo for an extended period, and you're flexible to this place's peculiarities, it doesn't get better than this. 1) The capsules here... More

The rooms were very basic and not clean, and the hotel itself looked more like a cheap hostel, but I could deal with that because of convenient location, although the hotel is deffinitely overpriced. But what would make me never stay in this hotel again is the service. 1) I decided to go out to the next-door shop and didn't... More

This hotel is a bunch of problems and crazy rules. For example, after you check-out if you want to keep your laggage in the hotel they will keep it only till 9 PM. After 9 PM they will throw it away in the street! Thats what we were told when we asked about if we could keep the luggage in... More

The hotel is managed by an absolutely crazy and spiteful woman. Me and my girl-friend got 2 keys for our rooms upon check-in. When my girl-friend tried to go out to the next door shop (and I stayed in the room with both keys) that woman demanded that she leave one of the keys at the reception. She felt lazy... More

I wish I could recommend this hostel, but I can't. The staff is friendly and really seems to strive to keep the hotel clean, even though, as others have pointed out, the hotel's age has started to show. In a great location, the capsules are comfy, and are at a great price. However, and this is a big "but," their... More

I thought this would be a cool futuristic capsule hotel and the price was super cheap. But instead it's like a relic from the cold war. The halls reek of cigarettes, everything is dirty and there are no common areas for socializing. Good if you need a place to crash from out partying too hard.
