convenient location with grocery stores ...Posted Jun 30, 2014
Seven Eleven nearby in which i can withdraw JPY cash;close to bus stops ; a lot of attractive spots near by; Staff speak poor English; If you want save money and get Ok facilities , it is a not bad choice.

Fantastic for this pricePosted May 16, 2014 on Hotels.com
I was very surprised by the quality, the cleanless and the well positioned in Gion for this cheap price. We had a 4 tatami bed room.

A cheap & basic accomodation.Posted Nov 22, 2013
Pros: Clean, tidy, good facilities. Simple.
Cons: Check-in time states 13:00, but it is actually 16:00 !? Hard matress. could be a little cold.
Location: Good location. Near to many tourist attrations (temples, shrines, zen gardens). Good transport links. 30 mins walk from train station, or 15 min bus.
It is as expected. Relatively cheap and basic. Very clean and tidy. I stayed here for 5 days/nights. I would recommend this place more for a night or two as its not the most comfortable (matress-wise) and it can be a little noisey as you are close to your neighbours (on one night my neighbour was a heavy snorer, which kept me up for a lot of the night). Generally you will find this place is used for one night by Japanese business men who have missed thier last train/bus and need somewhere to sleep. Fresh linen daily, including towel and toothbrush.

Great affordable optionPosted Nov 13, 2013 on Hotels.com
Amenity Hotel has the basics covered. We stayed in a private capsule room with private bath, and it suited our needs. Tidy, clean bedding & bathroom, close to Gion and other picturesque areas. A great value.

Amenity is AwesomePosted Sep 13, 2013 on Hotels.com
The helpful man who runs the hotel let me use the phone to coordinate tickets in Tokyo and let us use umbrellas, gave us directions and was generally great. Our private capsule room which had two bunk bed style capsules and a private bath with a shower and tub was also equipped with a nice seating area a desk a tv which was nice to not have the only place to sit be on your bed! There was a small onsen on each floor complete with toiletries and hair dryers and looked newly installed. Clean. And the best part, a view of a five-storied pagoda and a white Buddhist statue from the window. Windows open, or A/C always comfortable. We stayed for four days and had great access between the busses and subway system. A deal for sure if there is two or three people. Capsule experience but with privacy!

Will not stay at a "Capsule" hotel again.Posted Apr 10, 2013
Pros: It was close to the Kiyomizumichi bustop
Cons: Couldn't take a good bath
Location: Its in the central south east of Kyoto. Not a bad location, but good food shops are a bit away from here.
Faced several issues such as bath water not hot enough, bathroom too small (shared bathroom, but not quite enough for all the rooms combined), Cubicle or "Capsule" small and cold, cannot control the temperature inside it. The restaurant below could not be used when I tried to have a dinner there as it was "Kashikiri" or fully rented out. Hardly able to connnect to the Wifi and not entirely "Private" capsule. Overall a bad Capsule Hotel experience.

Walking distance to the temples...Posted Nov 21, 2012 on Hotels.com
Just 1 min walk by taking bus 206. The hotel is on the opposite right of the bus station. The hotel is also kind enough to check-in us earlier instead of the standard check-in time. There is no proper place to store your luggage, so don’t leave anything valuable behind until you get into the room. Recommend to get a private room with attached bath room if you travel in 3 to have more privacy.

A clean place to sleep indoors, nothing more.Posted Nov 8, 2012 on Hotels.com
A capsule hotel is a large space of "capsules", each about the size of a large refrigerator on its side, with a mat, blanket, and pillow. It wasn't unclean, and the hotel service was fine. It's just a very small space to sleep in the company of other capsules. Location was a 20-minute walk to downtown. Was it worth 60 USD? Maybe.

Affordable but you need a bus passPosted Nov 24, 2010
I had some trouble finding the hotel. The location is not ideal with a 30 minute walk to the nearest subway. Still there is a bus stop nearby. Other than that, the capsule itself is OK, especially if you spend all day walking around and only want to sleep. However be warned that the showers are collective, so you might find yourself with a couple of naked Japanese businessmen at the end of long day. Also, two out of three toilets are Asian style however, that is normal in Japan. The people at the reception are nice and helpful. There are lots of temples nearby and the main shopping area is a 15 minutes walk. Right next to the hotel you'll find several small and cheap restaurants, as well as two small convenience stores. On the whole, if you are looking for a place to pass the night and don't want to pay much I would recommend this place.
