Fantastic for a short stay capsule alternative
Excellently presented, I enjoyed a great three night stay in Kyoto at this lovely hotel. It's right next to Shijo metro stop, or if you're light on baggage then it is possible to walk from Kyoto Station in around 25 minutes. The hotel is in a great neighbourhood with plenty of restaurants and shops around, and is only a short trip to the station in order to get out and about in the rest of Kyoto. The cabins themselves are comfortable - to solve the 'no lock on the door' issue that a previous reviewer had, I'd like to note that you can take your bags to reception and they will look after them for you - the same as you would do in any hostel or lobby so that isn't an issue. The rooms look brand new and the facilities, including the bathroom, are well kept. I found it exceptionally quiet and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for something different to a capsule, but can't afford one of the city's many pricey hotels.

Good option for cabin users that need extra space
Breakfast worth paying for: costs 500 yen (around 5 euro). The room was spacious I would say for being a cabin (in many cabins you cannot stand, as the height of the room is divided into 2 cabins, but these ones are not the case). The mattress was not excellent in my case, not that bad either, average I would say. The showers are in a different floor from that of the rooms, just one floor though and there is elevator. They provide amenities for hygiene. Wifi is very deficient.

Good and Bad
Hotel was in a good location, 15min walk to daimaru, nishiki market etc. Facilities are new and clean.However reception service could be better. Aircon was not cool at all and bed wasnt very comfortable. No english TV channels.

Kyoto - April 2016
Unfortunately, I was in Kyoto for only one day. Therefore I went for the cheaper end of the hotel spectrum. I stayed at First Cabin to experience the "cabin-styled" hotels - I won't do that again! I loved my (short) time in Kyoto and I'll definitely be back one day....but I'll book a normal hotel room then!
