I chose this hotel for my first trip to Japan on a whim to be honest . I was looking for something cheap and wanted to try a capsule/Pod hotel just to experience something different. I loved staying here . It was close enough to the JR line that I could get anywhere that I wanted to without getting too lost . The room was very clean and comfortable and at no stage did I ever feel uncomfortable or claustrophobic. The bathrooms were kept spotless and very well equipped. The free coffee and breakfast smoothies went down a treat as well . My Japanese is terrible at best but the staff were very welcoming and really went out of their way to make me feel comfortable. If and when i go back to Tokyo on a solo trip this will be my hotel of choice .
If you come straight from the Airport, this Global Cabin is NOT recommended. However, if you only visit the city for a day, without a suitcase, then, this may be very convenient and clean space for you to stay. The price may be a bit more than what's available to you, but the location may be of your interest. If you carry a lot of things, then Go to a business hotel that can offer you much space that you can safely store your luggage etc. Capsule Hotel (Global Cabin) does not have a personal key / lock to the individual room, which may cause you more concern than anything. You want to feel safe and good. Female Only Floor is available. Everything is autolocked and you need a floor specific key card to unlock the door. カプセル簡易宿にしては少々お値段が高いのかな？ でも新しい建物のためきれいでしたし、トイレやシャワー室も清潔でしたのでありがたいと思いました。二日止まったため、バスタオルは毎日変えていただけるようです。帰ってきたら勝手に変わっていました。
This is a brand new place that had been open about a month when I stayed. It borrows a lot from a bigger chain of high end capsule/compact room hotels and it results in a very slick and comfortable version of the same product.
The beds/capsules are stacked, but you get privacy from the fact that the openings to the capsules are on the sides rather than the ends. So you get kind of a mini-room with the capsule plus a desk space and a shutter style door. I happened to get a corner room, probably from checking in first at 5, so I also got a window and extra space.
There's no breakfast, but there are self-serve coffee, tea and smoothie (persimmon carrot and green tea coconut) machines available in the morning. Common area space is limited, with a couple of counters in the lobby that seat around a dozen people in total. Not spacious, but I ended up working for about 3-4 hours on one day when it was raining heavily.
Coin laundry is available (100Y to wash, 300Y to dry), and they even have a couple of chest freezers with frozen gel packs to put in your pillow, and some to put in the provided cooler bags to chill down any drinks you have in your room. There's also Japanese language books in a bookcase in the lobby.
All in all, this is a place that I would return to for the facilities. The neighbourhood is a little grungy and sketchy, with not as many nicer establishments as other more upscale areas, and that would be the only reason I'd probably pass on staying here in the future. But the location is very convenient in terms of subways and trains for anyone mainly doing stuff in the southwest part of the city.
