I stayed 7 nights in November at Capsule Ryokan. The staff was very helpful and mostly kind. At the moment we arrived they explained us all we needed to know about the hotel and also gave us a map an indications to move aroud the city. The twin room is small, but there is plenty of space under the tatami... More

I stayed in suite. The rooms are minimal, but you have storage under the tatami platform bed for luggage, shower, toilet, sink, and wifi. What else do you need. The staff are super helpful and speak excellent english as well. The location is convenient to Kyoto station and accessible to a number of bus lines as well. And a $10... More

My brother and I stayed here for 4 nights in early Dec 2014, in the Ensuite Room. After researching many places in the area, this was the best value. The room was small but as you're spending most time sight-seeing, that factor didn't concern us. Free Wifi is provided with great bandwidth as I was able to Skype with my... More

I stayed in a single person, private room. While the room was very small, the price was unbeatable for a room to myself in Kyoto. The room was warm and the bed was comfortable. It was about a 10 minute walk from Kyoto station which made traveling around Kyoto easy. Also once you walk in the staff overloads you with... More

I only stayed in Kyoto for one night (wish I had more time). The capsule ryokan was such a great experience! Very clean and surprisingly very spacious! I would have mind staying there longer. The facilities were clean too! Friendly staff and really appreciated the guidebook with things to do in Kyoto and recommended itineries and restaurants! Easy to find... More

Upon our arrival at the guesthouse, the person-in-charge gave us a very clear and detailed introduction about the neighbouring places, such as major tourist attractions, how to get there? What are the nice food can be found there etc. He also handed us the guidebook, we could bring along during our trip and even brought it back after check-out. We... More

The location is just 10 minute walk from Kyoto station. If you're unsure of the location, you can approach the information kiosk at Kyoto station, there's a english speaking volunteer that would be able to assist you on the direction. As mentioned in their website, their 10sq meter is equipped with all the facilities that you would need, such as... More

My husband and I stayed in one capsule for one night. It's pretty tight for two people, but for a one or two night stay its perfect if you're looking for a budget accommodation. Great location- next to bus station and a 10 minute walk to Kyoto station, which is where you can catch a bus, the subway or a... More
