Location is about 10-15 min walking distance from Shinjuku station. Surrounding area is ok, there are quite plenty of restaurants around the hotel. Facilities of the hotel is good. Provides full toiletries, which is good for light travelers. Hotel is clean. There's always a staff who helped to cleaned the area all the time. What i dislike about the hotel...

Staff were very friendly. Place is very clean and has a nice bath area, 4th floor lounge, laundry facilities, vending machines, wi-fi and restaurant area. Highly recommend if you plan to take one of the local bus tours that leave a short walk from the hotel.

Well located, and really cheap. If you are easy to wake up just forget about it as the capsules have just a curtain to close and you can see and hear people going around 24h! But if you just need a cheap and simple place to stay for a couple of days is good, and it's a rare experience in...

For some reason, capsule hotels in Japan still primarily cater to males so discovering this one I consider a gem. Located at the center of Shinjuku, you just need to look for Toyo Building and in one of the floors is this (together with other pubs and karaoke so it can be quite easy to miss). Aside from location, to...

For many foreigners, the legend of Japanese capsule hotels holds a fascination. What would it be like to file yourself away in a box for a night inches from strangers snoring off sake? This is the place to find out - minus the snoring. Actually everyone local is very polite and respectful of the need for quiet in the sleeping...

The location is perfect for Shinjuku. But, as with any capsule, it was hot and noisy with many people snoring. What I would advise anyone staying here, would be to bring a small fan and/or ear plugs with you for white noise. In addition, the capsule has zero ventilation, so you have to leave the shade open otherwise you'll roast.

Stayed six nights. All the essential amenities in place. Clean linen and towels, well stocked and spacious bath area. Laundry, lounge and restaurant on the fourth floor along with plentiful vending machines. Two WiFi spots to choose from. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable with at least a couple of them fluent in English which is helpful. Access is...

If you do your research about what a capsule hotel is and what it has to offer then you will not be disappointed if you go. Cheap, different , good experience. Most of the time I made it back to my capsule in the five nights I was staying there I was a little tipsy , so I just passed...

Stayed here with 2 friends for a capsule hotel experience in Japan. It didn't disappoint me. Finding the entrance might be challenging. Direction from the website is not helping either. Instead we found a review of this hotel with more details on how to find the entrance. We only stayed here for 1 night when we arrive late in Tokyo....

The entrance is difficult to locate because it's in a foyer which is off street level. It was a very good experience. Close to bars and eateries. It is about 15 minutes walk from the Shinjuku train station. The express train to Narita airport stops at this station. I would thoroughly recommend the hotel to anyone seeking a capsule hotel...
