Extremely cheap hotel, with a great value May 20, 2014
On my whole 6day-trip to japan, I only stayed in first cabin hotels. Once in Kyoto, and the other in Osaka.

I never stayed in a cabin hotel. would I turn back! FOR SURE!. It's so cheap, and it still looks classy. The bathrooms were never crowded... everything was clean.

On your check-in, you got a small, and a big towel. A pyjama, toothbrush, comb, and razor. All you need for a night at the hotel.

Your room, consisted of a cabin. No doors to lock.. just a curtain. So you could hear the people around you. Sometime people checked-in very late, and you could hear them emptying their suitcase. But I guess that's just part of the game, if you wanna save money on hotels.

I can't complain about anything...

you don't have any lockers or shelves for your private stuff. Just a drawer below your bed. However i gotta admit that i's big enough, to put in all my clothes for the 5-6 days, my camera equipment, my monopod, ipad.... Just your suitcase or big bagpack won't fit in it. And it's not SUPER safe... I mean with a peace of metal you could break the shitty lock. But if you're staying in a hostel or a hotel like this one, you somehow gotta trust the people around you.

You don't have to carry your luggage with you when you leave the hotel on the next morning to explore the city. Some people mentioned on tripadvisor that you have to check-out, check-in...everyday. That's not true. They just prefer that you give them the key back every time you leave the hotel, which is great, so you won't lose it while doing sightseeing.

The Hotel in Kyoto was very central, a 20min walk away from Kyoto station, 20 minute walk from the pontochio street. Some temples were in walking distance.

The Hotel in Osaka was in Namba...very nearby nightlife!

On my next trip to japan, I will def. go to this hotel again.

Never heard of these. They look great, I stayed in a capsule hotel in Kobe and loved it. This looks so much better, you could always use a train station locker for anything valuable too.
Thanks for posting.

First class cabin hotel Kyoto Mar 21, 2010
After the first in Osaka-Namba, in 2010 they opened a second one in Kyoto. A cheap place to stay for only ¥5,500/person (regular fee).

It's a cabin hotel build on one of the uppe floors in a i think old upgraded office building. It is like a capsule hotel but this is with bigger cabins and a more designer look. Basic but perfect for a simple stay for one or two nights.

It is on a sideway from the road that leads straight to the train station.

Watch the website . It was not possible for me to book straight from this website but maybe they fixed this. It is also vailable by Rakuten travel. Book ahead, especially for the weekends.
