Easy to find and located near Kyoto station and departure stores. I stayed at the twin room and I had a comfortble stay in the hostel. The room was clean and tidy. I would definitely stay at here again!!
Good location, within 10-15 min walk from the Kyoto station, and direct bus lines to major attractions near the hotel. The staff spoke very good English (the best so far we've met in Japan). He took the time to explain to us what attractions and good food are available near the hotel. And they gave us a pair of chopsticks when we checked out, very nice little gesture! The room itself is small, only enough space for 2 small suitcases, but there is some storage space below the bed which we didn't use. The shower is in the room instead of in the toilet, so it's a bit awkward when sharing the room with friends.
Small but have everything that we need”
The hotel was really 10 mins walks away from Kyoto JR Station. And Plenty of Bus nearby maybe 2 mins walking distant. From the Bus station you can pratically go anyway you want. The hotel staff was so polite and very helpful they provide us the nearest bus stop, restaurant and plenty we need. I have no complain and it is a very nice experience.
We took a Japanese style room, so too pity can't try the capsule room. The staffs can communicate in english very well, and room supplied with a manual talk about travel in kyoto, very useful for traveler. They also a small living room just beside the counter, you can have a cup of coffee over there. The hotel can easily access by bus from kyoto station but if walk from Kyoto station, you need to take about 10 minutes.Overall, is a good hotel for backpacker.
Near bus stop”
Actually if you're first time to this hotel, its quite far to walk but with help of the map in the website, it's really help. It's easier to take a bus no 206 and stop at Higashiyama-Dori Street. Even the room a bit small but it still comfortable and clean. Easy procedure to borrow iron, hanger, and other facilities. There're washing machine and dryer at second floor. Friendly staff that can speak english very well.
Staff were excellent, with incredibly good English. At one point my partner lost her credit cards down the side of the beds which do not move, so the staff came in with tools and pulled everything apart to get them out, and would not take extra payment for their effort despite our insistence.
Amazing place to stay!”
We stayed in the Capsule Royokan for two nights while in Kyoto and the service and amenities were so nice that we booked it again for another night on our way back through after traveling south. The rooms were clean and totally Japanese! Conveniently has shower and toilet in each room. What really stands out about this place is the staff though. They are so friendly and i cannot say enough how helpful they are. English speaking and friendly!!
Friendly helpful staff. Great Location. Clean. ”
friendly staff. clean rooms. available tourist materials. staff take the time to explain to you what is where and how to use the buses. hotel is very clean. fantastic location 8 minutes from Kyoto station and easy to find.
worth the money!”
The location is great, just 8 minutes walking from Kyoto railway station. The staff were nice. They even gave me a small souvenir when I checked out. (I gave them something back of course.) The room was not super clean, but it was already good enough for me. After all, it was totally worth the money i paid. Highly recommended!
Great value for a "capsule" ryokan with all the modern tech you need”
Great spot, really close to the train station. The hosts all speak perfect English and offered great recommendations on food and the best ways to get to the touristy locations. The rooms are tiny (it's a capsule hotel, after all) but have everything you need, including a space age shower. Highly recommended!
Great Stay at Capsule Ryokan”
The Capsule Ryokan is perfectly located near Kyoto station. The staff is friendly, helpful, proactive and keen to provide information and hints for discovering and enjoying the city . The "capsule" formula doesn't prevent to have space and lot of facilities including a very convenient common area with small kitchen and fridge.
Cosy little place ”
Value for money. Very impressed with the staff service and there's even a futuristic shower in your room which I love. There are any eateries around the area which many locals enjoy as well. The staff would recommend a few on the first day you stay there and get you acquainted to the area. Overall I think it's a good stay. Only complaints are that the room might have poor ventilation and that they don't really do cleaning of the rooms every day.
Convenient location, cozy stay”
We stayed for 2 nights in the capsule ryokan. It was a nice experience and the room was comfortable. Would recommend if travelling alone or in 2s. Room is cozy but has all the facilities that you need. It is VERY clean. :D Food, busses and other transportation are within walking distance.
Best tourist stay ever!”
It was awesome here, very clean, tight space but more valuable than the price definitely a bargain. Their extra services are offered without asking all the time so you feel super comfortable and like you are not bothering, they gice awesome advice for everything saved me at least a day of wasted time and also save you money by giving you tips on how to get best deals on train. You have to read the homemade guide book they have for free! Its better than the guide books you buy
Location, Helpful n friendly staff”
The room is small but very tidy & clean. There are utilising wisely about their space. You can store your luggage below the bed. The shower room is very amazing & the toilet is automatic. Quite a fantastic experience. It's walking distance from Kyoto Station and there's a lot of restaurants nearby, some of them operate until mid-night. It's quite convenient for us to look for food whenever we are hungry. The reception guy is very helpful, friendly and english-speaking. They are very patience in providing information whenever you need their helps. When you check-in, they will show you around the hotel room and passed you a reference book for tourist attraction places. It's very useful. When you are checking out, they will give you a complimentary gift as well as souveniers. Quite an amazing experience.
Shame we only planned 1 night in Kyoto, much to do around and this hotel is a nice place to start. Superb location, can walk from the train station. Hotel is renovated and clean, showers are really cool! Staff very friendly and helpful for planning trips around, good english!
Value for Money and extremely helpful staff.”
The location was pretty decent, around 10mins walk from the Kyoto Station. The staff were really very helpful and friendly. They provided a locality map with the nearby amenities, such as affordable Okonomiyaki, Yakitori, Supermarket. The busstops that goes to the major attractions, basically it is near 2 busstops, where you can take the bus to Gion/Higashiyama Area or Kinkaku-ji/Ryoan-Ji. It is also located near the 2 Hongan-Ji Temples.
Great value, great location, great staff”
Located within easy walking distance of Kyoto Station, this hotel is a mixture of ryokan and hostel. It has modern and clean line decor, with additional japanese touches such as tatami flooring, luggage storage under the sleeping area and a very clever usage of space. The rooms are very streamlined, you have everything you need, but there is no extra space. There is however a wonderful rain shower style shower. You won't want to spend a lot of time in your room sitting around! There is a comfortable lounge area downstairs, and scheduled culture activities as well. The staff are friendly and helpful, and speak wonderful English if you are not a confident Japanese speaker. They also povide useful advice and suggested itineraries for travellers. I highly recommend this as a wonderful base option for exploring Kyoto.
