Fabulous 8.6 From 380 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Super modern, clean, and comfy. Great service and easy to access Namba and Dotonbori areas which are super popular for shopping and eating. It's in the middle of train stations so be aware of walking a bit to get to the metro but it's not terrible at all

Typical capsule hotel
Typical capsule hotel. Very clean and high-tech looking. Good value for money if you're only staying for a night. My only issue was that the bed was a bit hard and the breakfast was basically some pasta and toast.

close to dotonbori, clean capsule hotel
Hotel is close to nippombashi subway and nankai line. The JR station is farther but is possible to walk. The locker area is spacious enough to organize your luggage. Hotel is near tourist attraction and also malls.

Convenient, clean, and perfect for solo travel
Convenient location - easy access to/from airport, subway, various train lines for day trips from Osaka (I did Kobe/Himeji, Koyasan, and Nara), and walking distance to Dontoburi. Capsules were organized into male and female sections. Clean facilities with daily refresh of towels, pajamas, and slippers. Lockers in the facility area, which reduces noise in the sleeping area. Breakfast sandwich bar was a nice option, though unnecessary since there are numerous convenience stores nearby if you want a cheap meal. Can rent pocket WiFi device from front desk also if you didn't have a chance to make prior arrangements. Perfect for solo travel!

Friendly nice very helpful staff, they don't speak a lot of English but really try their hardest to help you out. Good location Namba area 10min walk if not less to Dontobori district and river shopping mall, food everywhere, Lawson convenient store next door and about 15-20 min walk to Osaka zoo, Tsutenkaku, Shinsekai district and Shitennoji shrine clean room bathrooms showers are really nice facilities taken well care of not much luggage space in your locker but they do have a luggage room and give you a cable lock to lock your suitcase up very safe did not have a problem leaving things out on table in lounge area while I left to use restroom or grab other things form locker staff is right there and they have security cameras inside and outside of the reception desk. No laundry but a few blocks walk and there is a coin laundry near by. Great for the solo traveler or even a group not for travelers that want convenience of having your luggage with you at all times or those who want to head back to the room to relax for a little bit. Check out time is 10 AM and you can't go back to your room till 5 PM even if you stay multiple nights they need time to clean all the capsules. Really enjoyed my time and loved the location would definitely stay here again. Thank you to all the great staff sayonara till next time.
