  • It's dirty, with broken facilities and in an inconvenient location compared to the rest of tokyo. More than anything the staff wasn't in the least bit accommodating. I had better treatment in some of the worst countries in the world.

  • If you're looking to sleep in a capsule, you can't do it much cheaper. It's comfy and is located close to a subway station where you can get anywhere in the city. Speaking a little Japanese will help at the front, but it's not needed. If you just need a place to crash, look no further.

  • Everything was old, but clean and functional. Good value for cheap accommodation. Spoke Japanese with the friendly and helpful front desk staff. Right around the corner from Asakusa Station - take Ginza Subway Line to Ueno Station for quickest access to central Tokyo. Walking distance from Senso-ji Temple and Skytree. Recommended to budget travelers and light packers. Note that there are smoking areas right outside the capsule dorms, though the staff cleans frequently to keep the smell at bay.

  • Getting to this hotel was quite easy, as it is just about one block away from the Tokyo Metro. Depending on who is working at the counter, you may have some difficulty in communication as not everyone there is a fluent speaker of English. The hotel rooms are fairly clean, but a little old. The electric outlet in my capsule was not screwed into the wall, and just hung loose, thereby exposing the wiring. The price is fairly good for Tokyo, though.

  • Lounge area could be a bit cleaner. Staff do not speak English well. Had missunderstanding about cancelation policy but worked it out. Older lady brings treats which is nice.

  • The staff chase you out the moment it is 10am. If you do not obey, they will charge you for another night! So calculative! People are not friendly there by Japanese standard.

  • The hotel location is the best place for me to travel around Asakusa. Furthermore the Hotel location is near to Narita Airport which has direct train to the Airport within 1 and half hour.

One early morning, accompanied with a semi-hot cappuccino and croissant eaten like a true Roman - standing up and in a hurry - I was off on the Metro to the Vatican.
