We stayed in one of the twin rooms, not for the claustrophobic! The room itself is fine, but not so great if you don't like small places or windows that don't open. The bed was also slightly uncomfortable. That said, there is great information provided by the hotel and it is conveniently located not too far from the station.

We stayed at the Capsule Ryokan for nearly a week in one of the double rooms with its own bathroom. The location was very convenient and just a a short stroll from Kyoto Station. They have a very practical guide for guests that tells you almost everything you need to know. And the front desk staff are friendly and informative.... More

My husband and I fell in love with this hotel. Perfect combination of Western and Japanese. Practical and convenient. The service was excellent! They have a booklet with all kinds of tips and information of Kyoto and cities nearby. They provide a map with restaurants and places nearby that are convenient for food, atm, drinks etc. Modern and cozy I... More

I thought that it would be fun to stay in a capsule while travelling through Japan. I contacted the Capsule Ryokan Kyoto via their website and they replied within a few hours (it was the morning or early afternoon in Japan). The capsules were comfortable for me (I'm 6'1") and the bathroom and shower were clean and not over-utilized. In... More

Very nice ryokan, very friendly staff. They allowed me to check-in 2 hours before normal time, since my room was already ready. This was great because I was exhausted after 12 h flying + 3 h by train before arriving there. This Ryokan offers you a great amount of facilities. You don't miss anything. They even offer us umbrellas, which... More

We actually stayed at Budget Inn, which is a couple of buildings away from Capsule Ryokan, but is the same company if I understand. Anyway, the location is superb, staff are very friendly and helpful and overall we were very satisfied with this accommodation. The room was very clean and serviced every day. If you get noisy neighbors, it may... More

Our six night stay at the Capsule Ryokan proved to be a great choice in budget accommodation. Less than a 10 minute walk from Kyoto station (on a main street and easy to find), our room was a very clean but compact double in this new hotel, with A/C, TV, wi-fi, and an ensuite with a 'welcoming' toilet lid (you'll...

What is the first thing I remember about Capsule Ryokan? Extremely friendly and helpful staff! They are doing their best to make your journey to Kyoto emotional, entertaining, comfortable, memorable. Maps, advice, even small talk 'how was your day', everything makes you feel great pleasure during all your visit to this wonderful city. As for location and rooms: everything was... More
