Clean, friendly staff, excellent location.”
Pro’s - exceptionally clean, great staff, excellent location in a busy part of Kyoto. Con’s - this isn’t my type of place to stay at all. Although The Millennials was exceptional in regards to the above pro’s, I found it full of younger people that focused more on talking about work and wanting to eat avocado. It would suit anyone wanting a backpacking holiday. Not really for those that want rest and some peace and quiet away from younger travellers.
The location is very convenient, you can walk to many famous attractions, and you can find amazing food within 5 minutes on foot. It's super clean and cozy, the bed is really comfy and the ceiling is high, so it actually feels like a room instead of a capsule. Definitely will come back!!
Great location but i prefer another pod hotel”
Pro: Very good location, right in the central Kyoto. Staff speaks good English and is very helpful and friendly. You can lock your pod before you go out. Good shampoo/conditioner/body wash provided. This is something which leaves an impression. Lol. Con: Pod is very very small! Not recommended to people who has phobia to small space. And it is inconvenient to take/pack your stuff. So its either you block people's way when you are taking your stuff or people will block your way when they are taking their stuff. Not ideal. Toilet is small and minimum items are provided (unlike the other pod hotel i have stayed in). I think the cleanliness also need to be improved (I am not sure it is the user or the hotel problem). The other pod hotel actually provided cleaning tools for users to clean after themselves but I don't find it here. Overall, Millennials is ok but i prefer the other pod hotel. I feel more comfortable there and price is about the same.
Hi Hazel, Thank you so much for staying with us and sharing your thoughts about our hotel. Just to clarify, although we are not sure which "pod hotel" you are refering to, we consider our Pods to be quite bigger than usual capsule hotels. For the luggage storage issue, your comment make point that it does block people's way when guests organize their belongings - we are deeply sorry for the inconvenience this has caused you. Regarding the comments about the cleanliness of the hotel, we do have cleaning everyday (twice a day for the washrooms) and we try our best to make sure that everything is properly polished. However, as you commented, we will see what we could to improve the situation. Thank you again for your valuable comment. Best, The Millennials Kyoto
Great capsule! Lots of room!”
Loved this capsule hotel, we never felt like we were lacking any room. It gets a bit noisy in the morning when everyone starts waking up and zipping their luggage, but we had an early morning too so it didn't bother us for long. Public areas are modern and very clean. Wish we could have stayed longer!
Hi Stephanie, Thank you so much for staying with us. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. We are afraid that it's true that area gets noisy at certain times (like check-out time as you mentioned), though I believe our guests are usually considerate to other guests. We hope you have another chance to come back to Kyoto and stay with us. Best, The Millennials Kyoto
Bicycle, Breakfast, and a helpful unicorn”
I loved this place. Its essentially a capsule hotel but with suuuper comfy beds and the clientele are much more conscious of silence. You get a large bed that folds in half so you can sit up during the day if you want to chill in your room. Bed and lights are controlled by an iPod that they provide. The lounge was dope - I opted for spending time there instead of going to a coffee shop since they offer free coffee. Breakfast was good although a little small. (Try the mackerel with peanut butter - it doesn’t sound like it should be good but it is.) WiFi was solid. Laundry is cheap and very easy to use (my laundry was the first thing I did when I arrived). They also offer free beer from 1730-1830. My favorite thing about the place is that you can rent bicycles. I rented on three occasions to get around Kyoto(highly recommend). They are solid single speed bikes with front and rear breaks that I covered a lot of distance on. The hotel is in an amazing location though so if you want to walk, Daijyoubu. Tons of restaurants and shopping if that’s your thing. Also close to major subway lines so you can get into nature pretty quickly. The highlight of my stay here was my interaction with the manager Aya. She was extremely giving of her time to help me find places to visit and explore. I made a friend. I would definitely stay here in again.
Hi Parker. Thank you for choosing our hotel for your stay in Kyoto and your generous review. We are truly happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience at out our hotel: from our beds, lounge, laundry to breakfast. We agree that Kyoto is definitely best to be explored by bikes instead of bus or trains, and it's great to know that you did so with our bikes. It was definitely our pleasure having you here and We are looking forward to your visit in near future! Best, The Millennials Kyoto
Go for it without hesitation!”
This was my first ever experience in a capsule hotel, and it was just perfect! Booked for 2 nights, extended by 2 more :) just couldn't get enough of Kyoto and hotel itself. The whole space is super clean and quiet. Pods are like little rooms, no claustrophobic capsule feeling as one can imagine. The bed is extremely comfy, unlimited towels, a perfect shower with high water pressure, even a bathtub! In addition, a washing machine and a dryer, the whole process will cost you 800 yen. The common area is great to chill, cook, eat etc. any time of the day. And the staff is super fun and efficient!
Thank you very much for staying with us also your wonderful review and high score! We are so glad to hear that you really liked our hotel and it is facilities!! Also you were comfortable when you were in pod! Especially your review of our staff made us so happy too! Please visit us when your next trip to Kyoto! We are looking forward to seeing you someday! Thank you! Best Regards, The Millennials Kyoto
Will definitely return!”
The cabin was so comfortable. Even though the height of the bed can be a bit difficult for shorter people but the mattress was very comfortable. The storage space under the bed was definitely a bonus as it is the same size as the bed. The coffee was great too! Overall, 5 full stars for this hostel!
Thank you for staying with us at The Millennials Kyoto! Your comments are highly appreciated. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed our hotel and its facilities. We'ii comtinue to improve the quality of our survice. If you have a chance to visit Kyoto next time, we hope to see you again!
Fantastic stay at Millenials in Kyoto. Slept well. Was so clean and had fantastic facilities. The communal area was a fantastic space to do some work, grab a free coffee or meet some people. Especially during beer o’clock from 5.30-6.30pm when beer is free. Highly recommend and would definitely stay again!
This is the best capsule i ever stayed. Bed super comfortable, location is superb! The room, toilet and everything are very clean. Staff are friendly and helpful! Will come back again if i am visiting Kyoto again!
Hi Jacqueline, many thanks for choosing us and we are more than delighted that our hospitality has met your expectations. We are looking forward to welcoming you here in Kyoto again!
This is the only capsule hotel in Kyoto that has a mixed floor, meaning a floor for both guy & girl which is convenient for a couple like us travelling as we don't want to be on different floor for the night. The room is just a bed with all the remote & key being the Ipod that was passed to you during check in. The troublesome thing is to make sure the ipod is fully charged at all time if not, it will affect on how you can control the light, air & stuffs. There is a place for everyone to mingle & eat. Cups & plates are also provided but do remember to do your own washing once you are done.
Thank you for the review! We are really appreciate that you gave us commnents and feedback. We will try to do our best to improve our services based on your comments. Hope you can come visit here again, and we are looking forward to seeing you again. Thank you.
I love pretty much everything about this place. The dining area with strict rules for guests to keep it clean, the facilities which made my stay very convenient, the location is ideal and near the train stations, sufficient storage space for my bags as well as the smart bed. I like that they also provide sufficient plugs for charging multiple devices and a common area for people to work or meet up. I would definitely recommend this place to others. In fact, I hope that The Millennials will have more branches elsewhere. Thank you!
Thank you for your review and all your comments! We are appreciate it! We are glad to hear that you had a great stay here at The Millennials Kyoto! We hope you have another chance to visit Kyoto again. We are looking foward to your next visit. Thank you.
Hi-tech hotel with great facilities”
This hostel is more than a hostel, the bed is quite large for single occupancy. They will give you ipod to operate your room (adjustable bed into sofa, light, fan, alarm). It’s located on top of accessories store and the lobby is in 8 floor, the lobby is in the same floor with coworking space. They have free coffee and free beer. Great hostel.
Thank you for writing a great review! We are happy to hear that you had a good stay with us here! We hope you can visit here again next time ;) Thank you very much.
the best hotel”
the capsule was smal but perfect. cozy . quiet. comfortable and the lavatory, shower room were very clean! i didn't wait for taking a shower or using toilet . location was perfect i could go kiyomizdera. ginkakuji by walk
Dear Yujin, Thank you for writing a review and comments! We are glad to hear that you had a great stay with us! We are looking foward to your next visiit. Thank you.
Best hostel ever! ”
Probably the best hostel ever! You get a double bed all on your own and there is a mixed genders floor if you are travelling with friends of mixed genders. Facilities are great, free coffee, branded toaster, and clean kitchen table tops. Most importantly, it’s situated at the heart of the shopping district. :) Do note that if you wanna wash your clothes, the washing machine requires 500 Yen per wash, 50 yen for detergent and about 100 Yen per 10 mins for drying. It cost me 400 yen for it to be completely dried (That’s a tad bit pricey for me but I’ve got to wash the clothes so...)
Thank you so much for your comment and staying with us. We are so glad to hear that from you. We hope you can stay with us again. Best regards The MIlennilas Kyoto
Excellent concept, great place to stay, good value for money, well equiped socializing/work area, helpfull staff. I cannot come up with something negative about this place, which should be read as a big compliment. Will go there in the future again in case I need a place to stay in Kyoto.
Thank you for choocing our hotel and writing a review! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed our hotel and its facilities. If you have a chance to come back Kyoto, we hope to see you again. Have a lovely day. Best Regards, The Millennials Kyoto
One of the best capsule hotel I have stayed. The staff is very friendly and helpful, fluent in both English and Mandarin. Not to mention the free-flow coffee machine, just make sure you wash the utensils after using them. The pod is extremely comfy, comes with 2 pillows so you can hug one.
Thank you for staying with us at the Millennials Kyoto. We's so happy to hear your good comments on us. We hope to see you again next time you visit Kyoto.
Excellent stay. ”
Excellent place to stay. Location was handy as its close to the centre of the action. Subway was also only a few minutes walk - max 7 mins. The staff are incredibly helpful. The atmosphere was pleasant and relaxed. The pods are comfortable. Overall, would highly recommend.
Dear Angelie, Thank you for staying with us and sharing your experience! Our staff try to create a cozy and relaxed atmosphere for the lobby so we are glad you enjoyed it. The hotel is located by the subway station and also the Hankyu and Keihan line as well so it is very convenient. We hope you will consider to stay with us again on your next visit to Kyoto! Thank you, The Millennials Kyoto
Comfortable and convenient”
We were delighted with how comfortable this hotel was, from the beds and washing facilities to the communal areas. Set in a fantastic area, not far from the flower districts of Pontocho and Gion, we found this to be a fantastic base while we were in Kyoto and wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
Good location, more complicated than it needs to be”
Excellent location near the subway, a major bus stop, and shopping street. I get the "theme" targeting the young technology predisposed demographic (I'm 30 from a big city, so me) but execution is flawed. You control everything with an ipod they give you (but locked down and drains battery hard and dies) so you end up having to plug it into the wall, wait for it to charge so you can turn the light on in your "cubicle" and of course there is no physical override switch. The software is buggy too (not being responsive all the time). The "lounge" area is nice and the shower facilities were nice too. Free beer at happy hour is a bonus too. Would have given this place five stars if not for their "gimmick".
Hi Andrew, Thank you so much for staying with us and your valuable comments. It's great to hear that you enjoyed the location and other facilities while we are deeply sorry for the inconvinience that you experienced with our device during your stay. The things that you experienced doesn't happen all the time though we believe that it shouldn never happen to any guest. We are now trying our best to improve the system and to make sure that no guest would have to go through difficulties in dealing with our device/apps. Thank you again for your review! Best, The Millenials Kyoto
Great hotel and capsule-experience! Would come back and the only suggestions for improvement are a) change doors to pods as the locks sometimes get stuck and a bit uncimfortable with a lock at floor-level b) ensire staff charge devices during day to avoid risk of guests not being able to switch on/off light due to device out of power.
Hi Darren, Thank you so much for your review and recommendations. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. For your suggestions... a) It is true that some of the screens of pods have problem in closing as the screen bars have changed its shape over the course of time since our opening. We are considering of changing the bars in near future. b) We apologize if your iPod was not charged when you got it back. Although we do check the battery of each iPod between check-out and check-in time everyday, we may have missed your iPod. We will make sure to check every iPod to be fully charged before giving to the guests. Thanks again for your valuable comments. We will try our best to improve our facilities.
