I stayed in Lightning Hotel on the 4th day it was open. Even though I was the first non-Japanese guest, I never had a moment where I couldn’t communicate with the staff. Everyone was so friendly, professional and accommodating - I never wanted to leave! The whole building is new, incredibly clean, very well thought out and perfect for budget travellers needs. The pods were comfortable, well lit, and very well designed. The storage areas (either a lockable cupboard or area beneath the capsule, depending on budget) were accessible, well lit and perfect for purpose. The lounge could use a kettle and drinking water, but other than that has everything - a vending machine, a machine dispensing free hot and cold Sencha Tea, Doutour Coffee, and 2 types of sweet citrus drink. The microwave is powerful and clean, there is ample place to sit and relax and the TV is visible from anywhere in the room. Although the hotel in right in the centre of the madness that is Asakusa, it is incredibly quiet and relaxed. Wifi is fast and accessible everywhere on the property. Showers/ bathrooms are spacious and clean - although I would have preferred cooler water in the taps for brushing teeth and washing hands. The toilets are clean and well lit. The team running the place, from the Vietnamese house keepers (who are super helpful and friendly) to the staff at the front desk (special shout out to Taku for being a super affable host and incredibly accommodating and genuine) and all the way to the manager who always had time to stop and chat, and went out of his way to improve every little aspect of your day. I can’t recommend this place highly enough!

My experience here was great. Close to all forms of food, entertainment and culutre. As for the hotel, was kinda disapointed because they call it a hotel but it operates as a hostel; other than that, its very clean and the staff are very nice. Showers are great the capsules are comfortable. I would reccomend this to anyone flying by themselves or with friends. Not too sure on couples but they do have private room options. Again Highly reccomend this hotel.

Un établissement tout neuf, très bien situé, incroyablement propre, un service très attentionné. Les « capsules » sont très confortables, les toilettes et les douches irréprochables, la salle de repos très accueillante. Une excellente adresse pour visiter Tokyo, en solo ou en famille.
