The first cabin is scattered on about 3 floors. Reception is on the 4th floor. The place is clean and staff professional, it has free sauner and hot bath but you pay for tv massage and breakfast which is not european. The only fault I can find is the bed was hard and a slight smell of smoke, not sure... More

Pros: Cabin is very roomy, didn't feel boxed in at all. Cabin is clean and has lots of outlets. Stuff feels safe in the locker under your bed I didn't worry about there being no locks on the actually curtain to the cabin. Bathrooms are well appointed and super clean. Great location - a few blocks from Dotonbori and loads... More

I spent in this hotel the first night after my arrival to Japan. With the jet-lag I didn't feel like sleeping, so I strolled around this hotel, in where I found many surprises. The first I did was to have a shower in those typical Japanese baths in where you are sitting down to immerse from the very beggining in... More

I wanted to stay in a capsule-like hotel during my first trip to Japan. Although First Cabin technically isn't a capsule, it was close enough without the clausterphobic aspect. Positives: Cheap, clean, and breakfast was OK (and included in my rate). Shiseido toiletries and flat irons in the shared bathrooms. Negatives: Loud, meaning I could hear others moving around most...

There is no door for the room but i think is quite sate to stay here along. I was along in Osaka that night. All the rooms were quite. There is a big TV which u need to use earphone to hear the voice. But it's not a big deal. They provide towels, tooth brush and other amenity u might... More

Finding the Hotel: Getting off on the Namba subway station, all you need to do is look for exit 13 and the hotel is right there! I did a lot of research before heading to the hotel, as I heard it can be hard to find if you don't get to the right exit. Checking in: I am pretty good... More

Had always wanted the capsule hotel experience. This is more like a luxe version of it. The room is relatively comfortable and the shared facilities (toilet and bath areas) pristine. Though running at full house while I was there, it never felt crowded. Skip the breakfast, its mediocre at best. The great location is a plus. You can practically access... More

After being to other capsule hotels I didn't expect much this time but was totally surprised. The cabin is equipped with a good bed, TV and all the amenities one could ask for. On top of that there is a good spa (Sauna, cold- and hot bath). The place is clean and staff is friendly. The only thing that annoyed... More
