Good capsule hotel close to Shijo station
I like the hotel area as it is close to Shijo station. I think it was gate 5 and the hotel was right behind it. Stayed there for 3 nights without any complains. Hotel is very clean, sleeping capsule is good, shower place is wider than any other capsule hotel. Breakfast is OK. Stayed 45 minutes longer than the check out time 10 am and they charged me additional ¥300. Otherwise that was good stay.

Decent stay
Overall this was good value. Rooms are small but well designed. Bed was a decent size with enough room for two pillows side by side (although unfortunately only one pillow is provided). Some people don't understand the concept of being quiet in the sleeping area despite the various signs advising them of it; whilst this isn't the hotel's fault, I think the curtains that separate the rooms serve very little use other than preventing others seeing into the room. In other similar hotels I've seen retractable screens used which are more effective at providing privacy and reducing noise level. Location is good; about two minutes walk to the nearest metro station, and about fifteen minutes walk to Gion. Breakfast was decent with some variety. There were plenty of showers and toilets so that I never had to wait to use them. I did however have to wait a considerable amount of time to use the clothes washing facilities. The one washer and one dryer really isn't enough.

Cabin style hotel in a good location
My 2nd time staying here. Chose to come back to this hotel as I was already familiar with the surroundings. Also I was arriving late at night from KIX airport and do not want to be looking around for another hotel whose surroundings I wasn’t familiar with. I like that it’s near Shijo station on the Karasuma subway line (3 minutes walk)and near other attractions like the Nishiki Market. Sapporo Station is just 2 stops away. The hotel amenities- lounge wear, towels and toothbrush provided in the cabins and toiletries in the shared bathroom/ powder room was provided. The only thing that kinda stressed me out was that we have to keep all sounds to a minimum - no talking on the phone - need to be on silent mode at all times (so I called home on the pavement outside the hotel), even things like zipping my bag - was so afraid it’ll wake up the neighbors. And the fact that I had to wake up at 4am on the day I was checking out - I had to put on my earpiece as I slept so that my alarm from the phone will not disturb the neighbors! There’s no mirror in the cabin (you can either rent or use the ones in the bathroom/ powder room) and can’t use your own adapter (can rent from the front desk). Some of the staff were warmer and friendlier than others but I think it was because of their limited English. One of the front desk staff (lady) had good command of English helped me call the taxi company to book for a cab for the morning I was checking out. Overall a good stay.

Exceptional 10.0
overall satisfied - good service, complete set of amenities, less than 5 min walk from Shijo station (5th entrance). Suitable for those who aren't too care about noise but hope to have privacy during stay.
