    Capsule hotel is a pleasure for solo travel”

    Very economical, clean, friendly, convenient. Almost futuristic. The trade off for these excellent qualities is just one "shared space", a rooftop access from 8:00 am onward on the weekday we were there. Very nice, and very friendly. Highly recommended.

    luxury capsule, I loved it!”

    I stayed 3 consecutive nights at Glansit and everything was perfect. The facilities were very convenient, the bed comfortable and the amenities were self serve in the locker room (which is perfect because you could get refills whenever you needed them in your pajamas, no need to go to the reception like other capsules).

    Capsule Hotel with AMAZING inclusions”

    Would absolutely stay here again, fantastic capsule rooms that were so spacious and so comfy. They also had mixed floors which was the biggest selling point for me as my partner and I wanted to be able to stay close together. Offered tonnes of free amenities like toothbrush, makeup remover wash, cotton buds, you name it. Felt brand new and extremely clean. The only downside was there was no 24 hour common room, only an outdoor terrace that shuts at 10pm. Everything else was perfect! Great spot for staying in the heart of Kyoto's night life

    Very clean, good amenities, comfortable bed”

    I slept very well during my stay at Glansit. The capsule is extremely clean, and has a comfy bed with a personal TV and headset. Guests get a locker where they can store their things in a dressing area. The male section was pretty quiet during my stay, but I can imagine it might be difficult to sleep when it gets crowded, especially if you sleep by the door. The hotel is well-located and provides pajamas, toiletries and even a spare phone charger if you need.

    Fantastic location. Very new and clean and spacious for capsule. Good amenities and bathroom!”

    I booked the superior capsule and it's the best capsule I had so far in Japan. Unlike most capsule, I don't need to check out of my room if I stay for multiple nights here and there's also option to choose for cleaning service for the superior capsule (no extra charges). It's like a mini hotel room with your own desk and door and bed... but without a lock. To me that's good enough because the price is great! Bed wise is very comfortable, not too noisy with a huge TV screen. It's comparable to a sky suite. Locker is huge enough for you to put your luggage in as well as your bags and others items (you have upper and lower storage space in the locker). The capsule although within about 5-10 mins walk from train station, its location is great as situated opposite Takashimaya and the most happening street in Kyoto and next to Gion. I will definitely come back here again to stay if I want save some costs on my accommodation in Kyoto and yet comfortable enough.

    I would come back for another stay. It’s clean, next to restaurants, bars, train stations. The employees are also ready to help YOU anytime. The only drawback is that Chinese man don’t respect other’s sleep time and make a lot of noise by talking on the phone or to each other in the middle of the night, opening doors without caring.

    Nice stay”

    Stayed 3 nights and was a great experience. It was bigger than I'd imagine for a capsule room. I requested for a corner bed and it was probably why my experience was excellent. I can't imagine the people getting the beds near the entrance would have a good experience. Every floor has one big bathroom with a tub and smaller shower rooms. Would stay again.

    Great for short term stays (1-2 days)”

    A brand new capsule hotel with very nice amenities: nice bathrooms, nice capsules, bedding, daily change of pyjamas and towels (if you stay for more than one night). There's a very small rooftop lounge for men only and an indoor lounge for women only. A bit unfortunate as there is no indoor lounge for men at all (especially when it is cold/wet outside) or one that opens past 10 pm (the outdoor lounge closes at 10 pm). The indoor lounge happens to serve tea but it's only for women; nothing for the men. The staff was kind enough to put a hot water flask on 2F for any guest to enjoy hot water and a small table (seating for 2) if you want to eat, sit or work there. But for a hotel that has so many capsules, there really should be more indoor lounge/work seating for the majority of its customers, which are men. If you're a business traveller or a leisure traveller crashing for one or two nights at most, then the issues I have highlighted are likely inconsequential to you.
