Staff didn't speak much English but tried to communicate. Wouldn't hold our luggage but had ¥400 lockers that fit 3 large suitcases, can only access it once and then have to pay to lock it again. As 3 females we were the only ones on our floor (female floor) It was clean and bigger than I thought but no air...

The capsules were exactly what I expected them to be based on previous reviews. Room enough to stretch my legs (but not my arms) and sit up. I even kept my large travel bag in the capsule with me rather than in a locker on another floor. The bed was less than ideal, as it was more like 3 inches...

In Asakusa, hard to find due to some name changes, female capsules, shared bath, own tv and radio and good sound isolation. Didn't felt claustrophobic at all. Private lockers so you only take what is really needed to sleep to the capsule, but things are close to you (except your shoes). We didn't had big luggage, but they have a...

Clearly from the reviews this place may not be to everyone's liking but I loved it! Good points: 1. Women can stay (on their own floor) so it's good for couples. 2. Cheap. 3. 1970's space oddity vibe in the capsule. 4. Lockers, pj's, towels, razors and toothbrush all gratis. 5. Spa and sauna Bad points: 1. Lousy WiFi. 2....

In general - this hotel is cheap but you get what you pay for. Its quite messy (not dirty but there's piles of old furniture on the corridors), somewhat claustrophobic and the facilities urgently need a makeover. BUT its very inexpensive, almost empty, in a good location and has the best view on the Sumida river in Asakusa (also from...

We wanted to try a capsule hotel during our trip in Japan, and we ended up choosing this one. It's certainly a worthwhile experience. A bit like a deluxe dormitory. Good value for money. Very good location - just next to Asakusa station.

We reserved via Hostelworld, which required a 10% non refundable deposit. Stayed for just a night to try it out. I researched a lot prior to my visit. The only thing which worried me slightly was the comment that the capsule could be pretty warm since there was no air vent in the capsule. I even brought along a hand...

This place is great, affordable, clean. I slept well here. The price is reasonable. I loved the bathing area. My stuff felt secure in the lockers. Only downside is having to be out from around 9am until 3am. Sometimes you want to take a nap or sleep in.. But, I enjoyed the unique experience and would recommend it to others....

I had a good laugh staying here for a few days. Very nice balcony on the 9th floor overlooking the river too. Location is pretty good, right by Asakusa metro stations. Downsides are that many of the communal areas are not non-smoking so smell pretty bad and some people might be put off by Japanese men sitting in the communal...

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighbourhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.

“Like a bunk bed, there are usually two rows of capsules on each floor. Request one of the lower capules. Also, we had the advantage of staying in one of the few capsules where the bed is perpendicular to the entrance, so it's easier to get in.”

“have to be really mindful of the noise you make inside the room with the capsule hotels, even the slightest sound can wake up your 'neighbors' and give you a look! The place is for resting after all.”
