Convenient and cheap

Screaching karaoke till 5AM the floor below, 6am renovations and concrete drilling started. Completely unrested for the coming day. Complaint was met with a sorry and a shrug of the shoulders..."It's not in our hotel". Technically that isn't correct...you know it is the floor above/below... then you should warn your guests that this will DEFINATELY AFFECT their visit. I've stayed here monthly for 2 years. I won't be back.

Nice place

Pros: Good location. Walking distance to shopping, restaurants and train station
Cons: I don't get the concept of checking out at 10am every day if your in town for multiple nights. Why can't we just have the same room.
Good place to stay if your in town just for 1 night

Good for a cheap stay

The hotel is nice and the staff speak English fairly well, which was good for a tourist like me. However, be careful when booking! I accidentally booked nights for a male only floor when I am a female, and had to cancel and reschedule my room, which ended up costing more. Other than that, the pods are nice and clean and the shower fascilities are about the same. Overall good stay.

Interesting experience. If in japan, you should experience for a night. Not much more than that. Gotta be out by 10 every day and cant check in til 4. Even if you book more than one night.

Give it 5 stars because of location in the heart of it just make sure you have a picture of the front entrance I passed it and walked around for 25 min but at least the 4th person I asked knew! It's very clean and quiet but do bring sleeping pills because people pack/ unpack their bags and you can hear that. I realized last minute that I wanted to ship my bag off in the morning so I was culprit !

Location is perfect. No enough space for luggage. Many improper rules. Many strict and silly cash punishment. Noisy in the capsule not easy to fall asleep. Definitely not recommend.

Very bad experience with this accomodation that turned out to be in the red light district. The TV only had one Chanel showing graphic pornography. Absolutely terrible experience.
