      Everything was clean and service was excellent. For a "capsule" hotel this really works well and definatelly beats my few stays at a hostel. I have never stayed at a "capsule" before, but the tiny room with a real and comfortable bed works well. While I did not try out the 32 inch flat screen TV, I thought it marvelous that each cabin had one. My evening time was spent emailing, aided by a direct internet cable connection. Intially the staff lent me a cable (I forgot to bring my own) but I easily purchased one cheaply at BicCamera based on staff response to my question. Some people might be concerned that there is no locking door, just a curtain, and thus, you comfort at night in regard to noise depends on your neighbors. In my four night stay I never had any noise that disturbed me as all visitors were very conscious and considerate as requested by hotel policy. All the toilet and shower facilties are located separately so there is no sound from them. Each cabin has a "safe-drawer" with a combination lock. In the US, I might be concerned that someone could break into this drawer but in Japan, such crimes are unheard of. Here people leave their bicycles on the street unlocked even in large cities with no danger of theft. Visitors to the Cabin might be concerned by privacy but I never had any instance that bothered me whatsoever. The shower room and toilets had individual stalls. I picked the Cabin based on price and availability but it is also conveniently located 200 feet from a subway entrance and 300 feet from a convenience store but yet is on a relatively quiet side street. Being the first time I stayed in a "capsule" type hotel, I was not sure what to expect but for me this stay was a completely positive experience that I would recommend to anyone who does not need a large or quite private space. I would, however, recommend the larger cabin that I had out of their two sizes of cabins avialable.

      No real downsides. I might note that one can buy a breakfast at the Cabin, but it seemed to be quite limited so I (being frugal) I just grabed some sweet rolls from the local convenience store (or the bakery next to the convenience store) along with a carton of cold sweetened milk coffee that I soon became addicted to. The staff had somewhat limited abilty with English but their willingness to help in any possible way was impressive! I would never bother to write a commentary this long for a place I did not like!

      Much cleaner and more private than I was anticipating for a "capsule hotel" style place. I had a terrible day in Koyto so ended up checking right after 3pm. Staff was very police and helpful, but I was impressed with the space itself. I had a smaller unit and found it extremely clean and comfortable. I in fact kind of wanted to take my pillow with me when I checked out the next day! I would definitely stay at this facility again.

      I wish the wireless internet extended into the cabins instead of just in the lobby. There was wired internet in the cabin, but my ipad could not connect. I ended up going down to the lobby/lounge for an hour or so, but would have been more comfortable in my cabin itself.

      Clean, TV was big, full amenity for women, great kind service.

      Nice, but small rooms. The first class is slightly bigger than the business room (which is just a bed). Shower rooms are very clean and new. Hotel staff speaks enough English to make a decent conversation.

      When staying in the business class (cheaper option), the shower room was on the other floor. The rooms were too small for large pieces of luggage to put in your room, so you can bring it at reception.

      Cheap, the hotel staff is extremely helpful and go out of their way to help you out with directions and help you research. Theres this one guy nemed teruya that works there that speaks well english. Hes hard to miss, quiet guy that talks lightly, and ofcourse speaks english. He helped me with finding directions and how to catch the bullet train to nagoya. Herd about him in another review. That was one of my reasons for choosing first cabin karasuma.

      Just the curtains. They could atleast add a sliding door for more privacy but no one bothers you. I was happy with it for the ammount I paid for.

      Nice Cosy Lounge. Unique Aeroplane Concept.

      Expensive hotel given the size of the room. Video on Demand shld be free. 1000 yen just to watch video who will want to watch it when you can watch over the internet for free.

      Very clean and new facilities. Spacious shower stalls. Adequate air conditioning.

      Poor location. Only office buildings and upscale restaurants within walking distance. Hotel provides no microwave oven. No elevator from reception to the floor below (to the men's floor), so you have to carry whatever heavy luggage and walk up and down the stairs to reach your capsule. Wi-fi only in reception area. Inside the capsule, the hotel provides a ridiculously short ethernet cable for connecting to the wall jack. The wall jack is high up and when sitting on the bed with your laptop connected with their cable, I had to be in a very uncomfortable position so that the cable can reach my laptop. But the worst is by far the absolutely dismal connection speed this hotel provides. This is wired connection??! Expect "Website not found" for "Server taking too long to respond" for about 99% of the time. It's pathetic. Just because of this I would not stay in this hotel ever again.

      So it is a youth hostel without the bunk beds!

      It was clean, and really well placed.

      There is no wi-fi in the room. It was a bit noise the second night and also all the mornings (7 am) People traveling in groups shouldn't have the room together because they won't respect others rest.
