i paid 2200Yens and i got what i payed, the capsule was clean, the bathroom was okey, the only thing is that the capsules don't have conditioned air, but is not that bad, good experience for little money.

I went with 2 more friends and we spent several nights in there. We wanted to test the feeling of sleeping in capsules and it was fantastic!!. Confortable, clean, and many nice people. On the last level there is the common bath with la little spa. There is another floor where you can go to eat, use wifi and talk...

I was looking for a way to see Tokyo on the cheap, and I spent a week (mostly) at the Asakusa Riverside. It was very comfortable, private, clean, and safe. The women's bath was empty every night, and it's almost like a small swimming pool. Just a fantastic place to stay. I locked my bag in a coin locker a...

The place is very close to Asakusa A4 Ginza subway exit, so it's very well located. There are good views from the rooftop to Asahi building, Sumida river and Tokyo Skytree. Very cheap place and 24h concierge. That are the good points. The bad ones, it's a capsule hotel - so consider what implies. No plugs in capsules, only at...

The hotel located near the Asakusa station. You can see the view of Sumida river and Asahi building at 9th floor. Shared bathroom, japanese style, close at midnight. Small locker for your cloths, but not suitable for keep luggage. Wifi at 2nd floor only.

Stayed here for 1 night only in March 2016. It's been our least favourite accommodation in Japan. We read that you should experience staying in a capsule so we were pretty excited. But the hotel was dirty, stunk of smoke and just seemed generally run down. The only type of place to wash was a public bath so there was...

My friend and I stayed here for only one night and were thankful it was only one night. This place is weird... The only positive is that it's fairly clean. The staff keep your keys when you go out, which is decidedly inconvenient. There's only wifi in the common room, which, unfortunately, allows smoking. The baths/showers are public. I spent...

I was really excited about every the novelty of the capsule hotel. This place is one of the few capsule hotels that caters to women so it gets some credit. The women's room was 24 plastic capsules, all with a TV that you pay to use. The capsules are made of shiny plastic and there is a heavy blind to...

We are travelling since 11 months and this Hotel has been the worst. They try to be like a 5 star resort but to be honest its run down, old, dirty, smoke everywhere, dirty matrass. The stuff is very unhelpful, rude and dont speak english. As we asked for a clean bed. They said what do you expect for this...

I was pretty knackered; checked in late and had the Onsen to myself. This hotel is obviously very jaded, quite dirty for Tokyo standards. But, the novelty of my first stay in a capsule hotel really made the experience a lot better! The capsules themselves are pretty poor standard having stayed in better once since. No power point. Snorers disturbed...

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighbourhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.

“Like a bunk bed, there are usually two rows of capsules on each floor. Request one of the lower capules. Also, we had the advantage of staying in one of the few capsules where the bed is perpendicular to the entrance, so it's easier to get in.”

“have to be really mindful of the noise you make inside the room with the capsule hotels, even the slightest sound can wake up your 'neighbors' and give you a look! The place is for resting after all.”
