This place is great although the pods can get a touch warm at night and the AC didn't work. The hotel offers amazing free traditional Japanese wash facilities. The Baths are crazily good and make the stay all the more enjoyable, great location excellent wifi I'd stay again for sure. You get FREE sake too.

I arrived in Tokyo, Japan and wanted the full "Japan Experience" so I figured a capsule hotel would be perfect. While I don't have another similar hotel to compare it to, I will give it a 4 out of 5 due to the price being a bit steeper than I would expect. Other than that, I found the experience staying...

Its not your average backpacker's hostel, but I embraced the experience for two nights and had a lot of fun here. The sauna and bathroom experience was great, the place is super clean, and the staff really nice and accomodating.

This place is worth wisiting for 2 resons: they accept women (not common in this kind of hotels) and the good price ( 2800 yen per night- approx 23 usd). Staing there is unforgetable experience of capsule hotel. Also staff is very helpful and speak some English ;-)

So good that the capsule inn accepted female guess because mainly capsule hotels didn't accept female guesses. Location was easy to find, just a few blocks from Kinshicho station. Public hot bath was so so nice , the capsule hotel provided complete toilettries (soap, shampoo, tooth brushes, hairdyer) Only around three people were staying in my floor at the time...

Best thing is that the wifi was really fast and staff was nice, though not all of them spoke much english. We were travelling as a couple and only place we could hang together was the reception. Thus I assume that capsule inns work better for same-sex groups. Warning for light sleepers: capsules don't really insulate any sound and there...

First time in capsule accommodation. Definitely an experience travellers should try in Tokyo! The public bath and sauna were fantastic. WiFi in rooms. Friendly staff. Met some great people here.

Nice location with easy access to public transport (JR-station, subway), supermarkets, ATM, etc. Capsule itself was clean and definitely worth a try but WiFi worked only in "common room". Nice and helpful staff, female Onsen (japanes bathroom) was very good but female bathroom in 6th floor was poor. Only one (of two) toilette was working and one sink was broken....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Japanese Unique Style Hotel.A Capsule hotel is a unique style of accommodation in Japan, inspired by the pursuit of efficiency of space and functional comfort, originating from the adaptive, creative spirit of the Japanese mind. A typical Capsule Hotel is composed of two major sections; a public lounge space including bathing, and the other is a private space where the sleeping rooms (capsules) are arranged. The actual sleeping room is a capsule unit made of reinforced plastic and designed in the image of a jet airplane's cockpit. In the capsule unit, all the required amenities are provided; TV, radio, alarm clock, adjustable lighting... almost everything is provided! Every device is within your reach and you can control everything in a sleeping position. For the numerous business people working hard until after midnight and who miss their train, and for all the people coming to Tokyo on a short business trip, or holiday; young and old, men and women, a wide range of people stay at Capsule hotels in Tokyo. Everybody that travels to Japan should experience this unique accommodation, at least once! One of the most unique accommodations in the world! ... more   less

“I had a floor level capsule and my daughters was above. She found hers a bit of a pain to climb in and out. Try to go in the far corner of the room it would probably be quieter than where we were opposite the bathroom.”
