This is a Trusted Review. Why?

A cheap and OK hotel where we only stayed one night. Since we are a couple we tried both the women's floor and the mens. In the mens part the capsule had lot's of burn marks on the floor and didn't feel that nice. The women's part was good. If you have a large suitcase the capsule is quite small since you have to have the suitcase inside the capsule. They area had lot's of restaurants and is close to the river and the subway.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

This is the first capsule hotel I have ever stayed at. The service at the front desk was very good and the staff were very helpful. Unfortunately no one really spoke much English, but someone was always willing to help.

The common room was a smoking area so that was not as pleasant. But there are non-smoking floors which are great and smoke free.

The bathrooms are traditional Japanese style and soaking in the water after soaping and showering is very relaxing.

We did hear some noises from the outside on the female floor, but the male floor was completely fine and my friend slept great.

The capsules are also not cramped like coffins like the first few capsule hotels that were built. They were spacious enough to maneuver around with your luggage and also to change while on your knees.

It was great that the capsules were very spacious because most of the clients don't have any luggage when they check in.
Also because most people don't have luggage, a 'Yukata' (Japanese pajamas) was provided along with a bath towel and a face towel.

probably won't come back to stay again because I very much prefer a room. But for the experience this place is great and I would fully recommend this place to anyone who is thinking about trying out a capsule hotel or for anyone who is only staying one night in Asakusa.

Great price as well.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I found this place to be a perfectly adequate place to stay - it provided a great experience of the famous Japanese capsules and I would certainly recommend it. There are a few things to be aware of: firstly, whilst it is close to the subway, make sure it is Asakusa that you want to stay in - I didn't find an awful lot to see there and kept finding the journeys on the subway to be quite long in order to get anywhere else (it takes a good half an hour at least to get to Shinjuku and Shibuya from there - don't underestimate how long the subway can take!) Also, checking in can be quite confusing if you're not familiar with the routine - they work on a daily ticket system, so there is a lot of exchanging of keys with the front desk, and not much English is spoken. But it's great that there is no curfew.
However (and this is the big bug-bearer!): you HAVE to vacate your capsule by 9am! (Even if you're not checking out that day). This came as a surprise, so just be prepared for early starts. Showering facilities are communal (sexes segregated), so make sure you're not bothered by showering in front of others.
Overall, a very enjoyable stay. The capsules themselves are perfectly comfy, although they give the impression of being hot and airless. Treat it as, quite literally, a bed, and you'll have a perfectly good night's sleep. Staying in a Japanese capsule is an authentic experience that has to be had, and this is a perfectly good place to have it.
