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

Surprisingly this place makes a lot of sense. It's cheaper than a hostel, the capaule provides a degree of privacy and potentially a better night's sleep than a hostel. There's hot water so you can at least make hot drinks and noodles. There's free toiletries, a decent sized locker (not big enough for a backpack) and a vague 1970's feel.... More

We stayed there for one night during our Tokyo trip. Well - out of the 3 places we stayed it was the worst one, but certainly the cheapest one. The capsules itself are quiet a nice idea, I had enough space to put my backpack in and you get some kind of privacy which you normally don't have in a... More

Staff didn't speak much English but tried to communicate. Wouldn't hold our luggage but had ¥400 lockers that fit 3 large suitcases, can only access it once and then have to pay to lock it again. As 3 females we were the only ones on our floor (female floor) It was clean and bigger than I thought but no air... More

The capsules were exactly what I expected them to be based on previous reviews. Room enough to stretch my legs (but not my arms) and sit up. I even kept my large travel bag in the capsule with me rather than in a locker on another floor. The bed was less than ideal, as it was more like 3 inches... More

In Asakusa, hard to find due to some name changes, female capsules, shared bath, own tv and radio and good sound isolation. Didn't felt claustrophobic at all. Private lockers so you only take what is really needed to sleep to the capsule, but things are close to you (except your shoes). We didn't had big luggage, but they have a... More

Clearly from the reviews this place may not be to everyone's liking but I loved it! Good points: 1. Women can stay (on their own floor) so it's good for couples. 2. Cheap. 3. 1970's space oddity vibe in the capsule. 4. Lockers, pj's, towels, razors and toothbrush all gratis. 5. Spa and sauna Bad points: 1. Lousy WiFi. 2.... More
