I knew what I was expecting when I booked this room based on the reviews. However, it was a little better than expected. It was small but because we were traveling with backpacks the size wasn’t an issue. I would definitely book again. The location was great, it is in the “redlight district” but ...
Bed was stiff and pillows flat, the breakfast was the same every day. These are my only complains. The place was immaculate, the staff didn't know any English (I understand considering we're in japan) but were invariably pleasant at every interaction. All the amenities you could want are readily ...
This was our first time using a hotel capsule and we can't imagine ourselves anywhere else but in 9HRS!!!! The staff, amenities, capsule space and everything was such an amazing experience! Each capsules were soooo clean and so fun to stay in! I loved everything about this hotel. I will definitely ...
No matter the season, there is always a festival to celebrate, a show to see, or a garden to admire in Tokyo. Vacationers may play at the Tokyo Disney Resort, mingle with the young, edgy Takashito-Dori crowd in Harajuku, and visit many beautiful, serene shrines in this spectacular high-tech Japanese city. Whether one is searching for backpacker hostels or five-star hotels, Tokyo has thousands of rooms to suit any type of traveler or budget.
Tokyo offers numerous convention spaces, including MakuhariMesse, which hosts numerous technology and multi-media expos like the annual Jump Festa and Tokyo Game Show.
With so many dining choices, it should be no challenge to find excellent cuisine near any hotels in Tokyo. Bargain choices include Japanese fast food chains like Matsuya, and one can enjoy world-class sushi at the Tsukiji Fish Market.
The central Tokyo ward of Shinjuku is the best spot to be if one is interested in the city's nightlife. The Golden Gai section boasts a lively international bar scene with friendly international pubs like Bar K and Araku.
Tourists looking for accommodations near the best shopping streets should consider Tokyo hotels near Akihibara or Nakano, where manga/anime fans can buy hard-to-find books and videos in Chuo-Dori shops and at Mandarake Shop in Broadway Shopping Arcade.
The Japanese are crazy about baseball, and visitors may catch the Yomiuri Giants play at Tokyo Dome or head to Jingu Stadium to see Tokyo Yakult Swallows games.
If you've never been to a capsule hotel (I hadn't before this one), this seems like a great one to start with. The staff speak English and will help you understand the rules of capsule hotels. If you're a group, you won't be able to spend any time together in your "rooms", but there is a lounge. Men and women sleep on separate floors. This isn't the kind of hotel designed to spend much time in (and this being Tokyo there's limitless things to do).
The room was tiny compared to our Texas standards. They wouldn't allow us to turn on the AC even though the room was stuffy and hot. Only the heater was available. We had trouble sleeping because of this. I asked for a fan but they didn't have any. They just old us to open the window which made it even more difficult to sleep due to the extremely loud and busy streets of Shinjuku. The location was great, and it was clean but I place more value on a good nights sleep so I'll pass next time.
Bed was stiff and pillows flat, the breakfast was the same every day. These are my only complains. The place was immaculate, the staff didn't know any English (I understand considering we're in japan) but were invariably pleasant at every interaction. All the amenities you could want are readily available. Breakfast was delicious but 7 days in a row of the same thing was rough.
We got a free minor upgrade which nice to have. The room had a king size bed, high floor which can view of Tokyo tower, roomy and clean. it is like 5 min walk from JR station and metro, which close enough. Only bad thing is require to pay in order to use the fitness center and shuttle serive because most hotel have it covered. The shuttle service to airport is 3100 yen per person.
