Very Good 8.0 From 234 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Very clean, quite large "rooms" for a capsule hotel (and also included an in-room safe for belongings), service was good. Showers/shower paraphernalia they provided (soap, shampoo, conditioner) were perfectly adequate. Only drawbacks: the hall lights were a little bright around the edge of the curtain when I was trying to sleep, and I could feel the springs of the bed a tiny bit. Overall, quite good, though.

Cabin style hotel in a good location
My 2nd time staying here. Chose to come back to this hotel as I was already familiar with the surroundings. Also I was arriving late at night from KIX airport and do not want to be looking around for another hotel whose surroundings I wasn’t familiar with. I like that it’s near Shijo station on the Karasuma subway line (3 minutes walk)and near other attractions like the Nishiki Market. Sapporo Station is just 2 stops away. The hotel amenities- lounge wear, towels and toothbrush provided in the cabins and toiletries in the shared bathroom/ powder room was provided. The only thing that kinda stressed me out was that we have to keep all sounds to a minimum - no talking on the phone - need to be on silent mode at all times (so I called home on the pavement outside the hotel), even things like zipping my bag - was so afraid it’ll wake up the neighbors. And the fact that I had to wake up at 4am on the day I was checking out - I had to put on my earpiece as I slept so that my alarm from the phone will not disturb the neighbors! There’s no mirror in the cabin (you can either rent or use the ones in the bathroom/ powder room) and can’t use your own adapter (can rent from the front desk). Some of the staff were warmer and friendlier than others but I think it was because of their limited English. One of the front desk staff (lady) had good command of English helped me call the taxi company to book for a cab for the morning I was checking out. Overall a good stay.

overall satisfied - good service, complete set of amenities, less than 5 min walk from Shijo station (5th entrance). Suitable for those who aren't too care about noise but hope to have privacy during stay.

Good capsule hotel close to Shijo station
I like the hotel area as it is close to Shijo station. I think it was gate 5 and the hotel was right behind it. Stayed there for 3 nights without any complains. Hotel is very clean, sleeping capsule is good, shower place is wider than any other capsule hotel. Breakfast is OK. Stayed 45 minutes longer than the check out time 10 am and they charged me additional ¥300. Otherwise that was good stay.
