We are travelling since 11 months and this Hotel has been the worst. They try to be like a 5 star resort but to be honest its run down, old, dirty, smoke everywhere, dirty matrass. The stuff is very unhelpful, rude and dont speak english. As we asked for a clean bed. They said what do you expect for this... More

I was pretty knackered; checked in late and had the Onsen to myself. This hotel is obviously very jaded, quite dirty for Tokyo standards. But, the novelty of my first stay in a capsule hotel really made the experience a lot better! The capsules themselves are pretty poor standard having stayed in better once since. No power point. Snorers disturbed... More

You get what you pay for. A night here is cheap (relatively- as it is Tokyo!) but it''s obviously nothing fancy. Capsules are clean and neat and perfectly comfortable but there is no plug point to charge phones etc overnight which is annoying. Bathroom, which is shared but quite nice was also clean, but the rest of the hostel wasn''t... More

As a place to sleep for one night if you're exhausted from working or partying and can't afford a long taxi ride home after midnight, this capsule hotel is serviceable. The beds and toilets are fairly clean. Though the capsule space is shared, it's quiet enough for you to get a good night's sleep, even if some of the other... More

My friend and I stayed in the female capsule dorm and it was SUCH a great, unique experience. The capsules were super cozy, very clean, and even had tvs. They were definitely big enough to put our luggage in so we didn't need to pay for an extra locker. The location was great, really close to public transportation and the... More

The capsules are a cool experience. It was super cheap compared to lots of hostels and hotels in the area. The location is great. However, you have to enter through the back (you don't have to but the front entrance is not in English and you will have no idea that it's the capsule hotel that you booked). Get off... More

I stayed here just to try it for fun. It was clean, calm and cozy. But it,s a place to stay for a shorter stay. If on a budget in Tokyo, try to find a Ryokan. Take a look at the capsule from inside here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VroaJywumFQ

I stayed in the Capsule Hotel Asakusa Riverside for one night just for the experience (this place was actually quite a bit more expensive than the hostel I was in for the rest of my Tokyo stay). This is one of the few capsule hotels in Tokyo with a women's section, which is why I chose to go here. It... More

Glad I tried this experience. One night was plenty though. What I liked: the capsule itself was pretty comfy and fine to sleep in; room to bring a small bag in with you; nice and dark and quiet in capsule room What I didn't like: creepy dark corridors, dingy carpets, shower room did not feel too clean, the jammies they...

I stayed here for 2 nights whilst in Tokyo and this was 1 night too long. A really strange set-up but worth seeing. The staff at reception weren't very helpful, my capsule was really cold at night and the mattress was about an inch think on hard plastic. It's not possible to shower between 10am and 3pm which is a... More

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighborhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
