This is one of those things you must do once. I would also add one night only. It was very hot in the pod and rather noise - like being back at boarding school in a dorm full of girls rustling through sweet wrappers. Also very inconvenient having to pay and check in and out every day. If you leave...

I stayed one night in a capsule and I enjoyed it. It is clean, the staff helpful and friendly. Towels, toothbrush and sleeping dress are included. Men and women are separated. Staying there was a kind of SciFi experience. Like sleeping in a starship. Unique experience!

When I heard that this was a capsule hotel, I thought the bunks would actually be closed-off comfortable beds. Maybe there will even be a sound machine! Instead, you're paying for an iKea bunk bed. The door to your bunk is a paper blind. The beds actually echo and amplify all the noise around you, so instead of resting easy,...

Had a red eye flight from HK to Narita arriving in the morning before I could check into my hotel, so I decided to take a 3-4 hour nap at 9 Hours. Popped in, told them I was here for a nap, and it was very straightforward. They told me how much it would cost, handed me a set of...

They provide a pair of slippers, shoes locker key and a card key for your clothes locker on upper floor. We must change to their slippers and must not wear our shoes in their hotel area. You...

Location: Lots of restaurants and shopping nearby. A large bus station within 1 minute walk to get you farther. A train station within 1 minute walk. We wanted to try out a capsule hotel experience and chose 9 Hours Hotel in Kyoto for that experience. Pros - The capsules are larger than a standard Japanese business man capsule hotel. I...

Overall - horrible impression. Didn't get a good sleep because some guest decided she has to use loudspeaker to whisper-talk on her phone (hate to tell people off but had to). Bedlinen is too cheap,too much synthetic fabric, hated it. Elevator does not stop on the 2nd floor which has quiter lobby ladies-only. So I could not use it unless...

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighborhood Profile
Shimogyo-ku
Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains. Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.
