Review of Capsule Ryokan Kyoto

Capsule Ryokan

Kyoto, Japan

204 Tsuchihashicho Shimogyo-ku

Good location from this capsule hotel. About a 10 minute walk from the Kyoto station.

It is in a good area, with a major temple just near by as one main tourist attraction. There is a convenience store nearby, laundromat across the street and a bakery next door.

To describe what a capsule hotel is. It is more of a modified dorm room. The beds are more enclosed with tvs and lights inside and a privacy screen on the side. Your bathroom is outside and is a shared bathroom and shower facility.

Check in at this facility was very fast with the owners being very friendly and welcoming.

Very clean facility and has good internet and good information for other travellers to the area. Large selection of Lonely Planet books available for someone to plan their Kyoto adventure.

For sleeping in the capsules, it is very comfortable, mattress was nice and clean. Just bring ear plugs as you can hear your neighbours in the room, who may be snorers. So be aware of any snore type of people. . Very innovative way to store the luggage in your room. The room is small, but you have everything that is needed. There is a free use of kimono to wear for taking photos. Bicycle rental store is closeby as well The owner has tried to combine the international atmosphere of a youth hostel with the hospitality of a traditional Ryokan.

The rooms them selfs have free internet access (cable). The lobby also have some rent-free items, as for exemple: ethernet cable, extra pillows, shaving kit, cliplights and a few other things.

For those interested in a unique accommodation as the lay out of the capsules is very interesting. I suggest everyone to try this style of accomodation at least once in a lifetime.

I recommend this property for a recommended accomodation. Be good for singles, groups, and even couples. It is good for anyone looking for something basic and on a tight budget. More less for the price you are paying you realize how much you get ripped off staying in hotels anywhere in the world.
