Me and my girlfriend stayed for 4 days in the Capsule Ryokan in Kyoto, which is perfectly located (10 min walking from the main station). We really enjoyed our stay there. The room is clean. Our room had a (really fancy) shower and toilet included. The bed was comfortable, the Wlan fast. Although the room is quite small, we had... More

This charming Ryokan is 10 mins from the station and easy to find. The rooms are a decent size and the shower is fab. Wifi in the room is pretty good. Best of all there are two excellent restaurants on the same street - a yakitori place and a okonomiyaki one. The host can point you in the right direction.... More

This is neither a capsule hotel nor a ryokan but is a new concept that will suit the tourist - both westerners and young Japanese. As a solo traveller, I booked a double room. This meant I had a room to myself and my own facilities - a futuristic shower in one corner of the room and a separate, modern,... More

As two women (couple) we felt completely comfortable staying at Capsule Ryokan for 5 nights.The efficiently designed private room had everything we needed to crash each night after sightseeing in Kyoto. The hosts were lovely, extremely helpful guys. Great value.

This hotel is all that is advertised and a bit more. The facilities are pretty good (shower, bath tub, kitchen, living room), the staff is wonderful and always eager to help (without sounding artificial or trying to rip off the guest's money!), and the location is very convenient (close to Kyoto station, restaurants and convenience stores nearby, good bus service).

I tried a few guest houses in Kyoto and this one is my favorite, even though it's a little more expensive than the others. You can choose either private bedroom, tatami style with a personal shower and toilet or go for the dorm for cheaper accommodation. Everything is clean, the staff is very helpful and speaks English very well, they... More

The Capsule Ryokan is an amazing little hotel. The staff are the friendliest I have experienced at any lodging and they actively go out of their way to give advice, help with translation and contacting venues, as well as giving you memorable experiences such as free kimono trying. I used both for capsule and ensuite rooms (I was joined later... More
