Great for What It IsPosted Apr 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
I had forgotten to book for my final night in Japan before flying out of Narita, and it turned out it was the height of the cherry blosssom season and the schools were on vacation, so it was impossible to find anything in Tokyo until I came across this capsule hotel. That said, for what it is, it certainly worked. The staff was courteous, the tub and sauna were big pluses, the capsules were surprisingly roomy, comfortable and clean. By their nature, when staying in a capsule hotel you are going to hear some coughing and snoring so earplugs are advised--I had my earphones in and listened to music so I was fine. Do be aware that this hotel is not located in the heart of Tokyo. It about 20 minutes north of Ueno and 30 minutes from Tokyo stations by train. The lobby is open all night so you can go to downtown for the evening, but if you find yourself here, I would recommend checking out the local neighborhood. The area between the train station and the hotel is alive with shops, restaurant and night life. I found a nearby Japanese bar and had a great time drinking beer with some locals. Though I would be unlikely to make this a destination, I would have no problems staying here again.

First Time In A CapsulePosted Jun 22, 2012 on Hotels.com
All other hotels were booked so I decided to scratch this one off my bucket list. It's a bit rough for a traveler who would normally want to flop down on a bed in privacy after a long international flight. You are given a very thin locker next to a narrow aisle to change and fit your clothes - that was the toughest part. Anyway I was able to shove my fat laptop case in there. Suitcase had to stay behind the desk. Even though showers are communal (hotel is all-male), the sauna and jacuzzi helped make up for the loss of privacy. Capsule itself was surpringly comfortable. Other hotel guests took sympathy for me and helped me figure out where to get fresh towels and toiletries. If the hotel had wireless I might have stayed longer than two days. Internet access is expensive at the nearby Aprecio internet cafe. ($7 for 30 min!) But if I was in a pinch, I would consider staying in a another capsule.
