    Feel like stay in room, not in capsule. Staff is nice and helpful, especially Matsuoka. Location is quite long walk on foot walk from inside subway to exit. I like that they have small electric fan for free use. Inside cabin is not too warm, good ventilation. I Like ladys floor, They have washing machine and dryer, good for me.

    The stay was beyond my expectations! I booked the first class cabin, and it was really spacious that I could put my luggage there. The only downside is that you can hear every sound other people make, but it wasn’t much of an issue to me even though I’m a light sleeper. The place was really clean and safe, even for the shower area and toilet. Highly recommend if you would like to go budget for a few nights.

    Interesting experience, but don’t get the breakfast!”
    Stayed here for one night in Kyoto coming from Osaka, just for the experience. The first class cabin is nice and spacious. Facilities are clean. Not too quiet though. Beware of inconsiderate guests that can spoil your peace. Another guest was talking and whispering to her friend in front of my cabin. You can hear everything, people packing or walking down the hall. I was disappointed with the breakfast. It’s just a small selection of breads and hard boiled eggs. If you need something more substantial, you are better off buying food from the convenience store and eating it in the lounge. Hot water ran out in the middle of my shower! But overall, my stay is just ok. Not for those like me who really want the privacy and quiet.

    Thank you very much for using our hotel. I also appreciate many opinions. Our hotel cooperates under the cooperation of our customers, but as we can more comfortably stay at our guests, we will continue to explain to customers more, not to mention more patrols. Regarding breakfast we will strive to accept customer's opinions firmly and satisfy. Also, the type of breakfast bread has changed everyday, so if you like, please try it next time you come. Regarding shower, we will repair after checking the cause. We are looking forward to seeing you again. FirstCabinKyotoKarasuma Tachibana

    The hotel is just a walking distance to the subway and Hankyu Railway station. So it’s convenient to travel around Kyoto. The only downside is that the shower room is on the lower floor. But overall, staff was accommodating. It was a nice stay.

    The room that i rented was spacious and luggages are easily stored. There’s a safe box if you need to keep anything valuable while travelling. The location is right behind the karasuma main street and there is a subway station nearby. The bed sheet is a little thin but hey, you get what you pay for

    Close to Hankyu stn and subway stn and walkable to Gion and Kyoto Jr stn. Surpasses any capsule hotels in terms of responsiveness (emails enquiries), cleanliness, number of basins, toilets and shower booths, and amenities (bath Towel AND face towel at no ridiculous extra chg, toothbrush, shower sponge, facial cleanser and lotion..) and lounge where u can eat cup noodles. This was my second stay and will be third when I come back to. Kyoto.

    Value and Convenience”
    The cabins are more spacious than the usual capsul hostels. Though still challenged for space for luggage and other personal items, the height offers more breathing space. It’s difficult to pack the luggage inside without disturbing other guests. Maybe a guest lounge or empty room should be provided where guests can freely pack their luggage. The location is very near the Metro station so it’s so convenient for travellers. The place is clean and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. Great value for money.

    I thought I`ll give facilities 4stars because the shower is in a different floor but then they make it up with all the little things like face cleanser, cotton buds haha. Also since there is only 1 set laundry everyone has to wait in line. Anyhow, all was perfect I love daily cleanup/bedsheet change and the night clothes. Perfect!

    Thank you for putting me far from the entrance door in a quiet corner. Although I didn't stay overnight due to tight schedule. I needed a place to put my equipment and a place to take shower or short rest..would like to stay here in the future if I go to Kyoto again.

    Staff were very helpful and friendly on check-in. I recently stayed at First Cabin Kyobashi in Tokyo, and this branch was a little lacking in some aspects. The mattress was uncomfortable (uneven and could feel the springs) and the shower room set-up could have been better. However, having stairs instead of having to always rely on lifts was a big plus. Overall, still very solid for the price.

    Do not stay here”
    It's very rare that Japanese people are rude but this time around, I have to express my distaste on how they handle their staff. I was scheduled to stay at this capsule hotel for a good 4 nights, I ended up only staying for 1 night and left immediately. After my first night, I woke up at 4:30AM to get ready for my day only to find my capsule curtain open ALL THE WAY. After getting ready and heading down, a ladt stopped me and asked what capsule number I was in. I told her I was at 318. She looked puzzled and alarmed and told me that she was doing her nightly walk around the sleeping floors of the womens area and found it concerning that I was snoring loud. I've stayed at other capsule hotels and I can for sure tell you folks that people (even girls) do snore more louder that I do. There were drunken european girls who accidentally went to my room. I told her that and all she said was at least they didnt harm you. Im like really. Complain about my snoring but ignore my safety? No thx.

    I wanted to try staying in a capsule hotel but was not ready for tiny pods so was glad to find one that has spacious cabins. Room is clean but the bed and pillow are too hard for me. The air is a bit warm but there's a button next to the bed which you can use to adjust the air flow. Shower rooms are on another floor which is not too convenient. If you're taking subway to Shijo, use Exit 4 for lift access, otherwise use Exit 5 which is only a few steps away from the hotel. Overall it's a good place to experience a capsule hotel but would not recommend for staying longer than a couple of days.

    The bed was awful..... there were some parts of the be where you can feel the spring. The location is great. Clean place. Just that you cannot make any noise while in the cabin. Because any little bit of noise can be heard by the entire row of cabins. You can always here when someone is packing or eating inside their cabins (which was not allowed)

    I liked this place a lot cause of location and as well as the fact it wasn't a typical hostel where you're with everyone. you had your privacy here. It is expensive but either way, I liked it. close to station, easy to get to Kyoto station and near places you could walk to if you don't mind 20 or more minutes worth of walking...which I did not. the business class is just a bed in a pod but I was comfortable. I got breakfast too. if stay here again. I actually extended my stay here.

    Amazing”
    Stayed a total of 4 nights in the business class apartment. The business class area were not as packed as compared to the normal cabins. You are allowed to bring your luggage into your capsule so you don't have to worry about having no space to store your luggage if you are travelling with big luggages. The business class rooms are really spacious, and does not feel claustrophobic. Overall cleanliness is top notch. Indeed you will be able to hear some noise and footstep when staying with others, however it didn't bother me much because the business class were relatively empty throughout my 4 night stay. Toilets were always clean, definitely a plus point. The only thing that I am unsatisfied about is the air conditioning, it can get really stuffy in the room because the ventilation is really bad. I went to the counter and told them about it, staff were kind and she informed me that she would adjust the main air conditioning switch to make it cooler. However, there wasn't much difference
