We stayed for seven nights during cherry blossom time and felt welcome from the moment we entered this clean and well-located accommodation. The staff were generous with advice on dining and shopping and maps and how to operate the cute tatami room with it's shower and the usual fun Japanese toilet. While the two single futon mattresses made it a... More

It is amazing how quickly you can get used to a small room. Everything is very comfortable and clean. Stayed four nights in room 303. There is no noise except for the cleaners and people who talk in the corridors. Full amenities you would expect in a hotel, except for a fridge, but there is a communal fridge in the... More

We stayed in the room with the ensuite on the top floor. It was small but comfortable enough to sleep in since we are out and about most of the day. Luggage space is very limited so keep them small if possible. You could always leave your big luggage in the reception area and just have a small overnighter in... More

We stayed for 3 nights in November 2013 as part of a trip around various cities in Japan. Found the hotel easily following the directions on the website and were welcomed by very helpful staff who showed us to our room, explained all about the hotel and gave us a map showing local attractions and conveniences. The room is small,... More

We didn't know what to expect, but we were welcomed by incredibly enthusiastic staff who were chock full of advice about Kyoto (and the strength of the power shower in the room... Haha). The en-suite room was roomier than we imagined and was a nice chill out space after days out exploring. The underbed storage (which is custom designed) was... More

I stayed there for several days with my girlfriend. The rooms are very clean, well organized, and with a good shower and TV. They are tiny though, about 10 x 10 feet. With the bed rolled out and our luggage on the floor, there is no room to walk at all. The hosts are terrific though, and the guide they... More

I had the opportunity to enjoy two nights with the Capsule Ryokan Kyoto. My lodging were on the first floor in the capsule, which I enjoyed very much. The space was much more spacious than I imagined and I would recommend it for anyone looking to experience something a little different. Being apart of the capsule room helped me meet... More

My husband and I stayed at the Capsule Ryokan for two nights and we loved it. You could tell from the way the hotel was organized that they put a lot of intense thought into what tourists are looking for. Our room was on the fifth floor next to the elevator, but it was SO quiet. It even came with... More

Location is great about a 10 minute walk from Kyoto station. Rooms are small but well laid out with lots of easily accessible storage space under the raised futon beds. We stayed 7 days without any problems but we travel light. Rooms are clean well looked after and have great showers and toilets. Free coffee and tea in lobby and... More

I stayed four night in this hotel. The staff is very kind and helpful. The place is clean and well equiped. The only bemol would be the location, which is very close to the station (good), but a bit far from all temples of Kyoto. Fortunately, you are welcomed with a map of the neighbourhood with a list of nearby... More
