My first time in a capsule hotel and it was a great experience! Everything was clean and neat and the capsules are comfortable. You have access to a locker for your shoes on the main level and one locker for your clothes and a small piece of luggage on the showers/toilets floor. If you have bigger pieces of luggage (larger...

My wife and I booked this place to live the experience. It's cheap for one person, but for a couple and booking several nights, I believe there are more convenient options considering what you get. Do the maths: For me $25 dlls, my wife: $36 dlls. The capsule: It's super clean, the pillow and the mattress were comfortable, the temperature... More

Not for couples! Capsule is roomy. Sheets are changed everyday. Slippers, sleepwear, and toothbrush provided. Bathroom is superclean. Only downside is the check out from 10Am-12pm but it is to clean the capsules so I'll take it! No kitchen area so eat out or bring food to lounge.

We (me, hubby and 2 boys.. 12 and 15) booked here for one night as a Japanese experience.. Don't bother.! I would say stay here if on a budget, but not as an experience . It can be noisy (but that is capsule hotels in general) and hot. But capsules are clean and so is bathroom. Fun for an hour..... More

Living in a space capsule, ah, dream come true! Ha ha. The bed was comfortable and not too narrow. There are eating joints nearby. The location is perfect. Good for a one night stay. The bathtub was out of service. The bathrooms are less for the number of people. There is no kitchen, not even an electric kettle. If you... More

If you're not up for something VERY different don't come here. My wife and I LOVED it. I wouldn't stay here for a whole week but as a fun 1 or 2 night thing it was great! To put it in context, we actually stayed here our first night in Japan after having a terrible 5hr experience at immigration at... More

Japan is a country full of interesting experiences and if you ever find yourself in Kyoto I recommend staying at the 9 hour capsule hotel. You enter the hotel and are given a locker to put your shoes and small belongings. You are then directed to your floor where you find your little pod - it's like being in a... More

It is located at 2mins walk from exit 10 of the Kawarachi station, the terminal station of the Hankyu Kyoto Line from Osaka and center of Kyoto activities. It is a few bus stations and walking distance away from the Kiyomizu-dera. The overall arrangement is very efficient. It is very good value for money. The hotel is not for light... More

What a great value for your money! It's super clean, which is 90% of what you want in a hotel. It was also surprisingly easy to use the shower system, and I felt like the design was superb. Even if you're not on a budget, this is such an interesting and unique place to sleep. And it's really just for... More

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.
