Customer review

28 September 2009

Liked: With a price of capsule bed at 2000 yen, this is probably one of cheaper accomodation options in Tokyo. And there is no miracle: you get what you paid for (or, rather, you don't what you didn't!). The location of the hotel is superb, with literally a 1 minute walk to the Asakusa station, and perhaps 2 mins to Kaminari-mon and surrounding shopping area. However, as far as the interior goes, the capsule part (I stayed in) is an old one, not really welcoming. The capsules are old, asking for replacement, with Japanese-only controls. Shower facilities are clean, but they are by far the cleanest part of the hotel... Lockers available for each capsule (do not expect to fit your backpack there, though). Overall, good for one night or so, but not a place you'd dream to come back to. And, by the way, definitely *not* a good choice for your first experience of a capsule hotel.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Derek Brace

09 September 2009 Derek would recommend this property

Liked: Good location very close to the subway, small but clean rooms. Capsules are just like dorm beds with a bit more privacy. For this price, it would be hard to beat. Doors don't really close in the rooms, so there is a chance of having things stolen, but it feels safe. There are narrow lockers for smaller bags and valuables in the rooms.

Disliked: Derek left no negative feedback.

07 August 2009 Chris would recommend this property

Liked: If you value your privacy then this is the place for you. The double room was fantastic, en suite, TV and air con. It was a pleasure to stay here. And right next door to the Asakusa sub way station. No complaints at all on this one. Perhaps not the place to go if your looking for drunken nights around the common room, but we were looking for a good bed and clean living.

Disliked: Chris left no negative feedback.

Liked: Very good location. It had free internet, only 2 computers though. Rooms were very clean, although a bit small (we stayed in a double private room with attached bathroom). staff were eager to help and 5 mins walk to good restaurants, Senso Ji temple, groceries and Seven11 (for ATMs) and Ginza line from Asakusa Station.
