I’m going business class style and
comparing two different luxury capsule hotels in Tokyo! I’m checking into this
hotel a little late, around midnight- this tour won’t be my normal style.. First up
First Cabin. There’s a bar and restaurant here, but I’m more interested in the
snack vending machine. It’s late however, everything is deep-fried! I think I’ll
get a drink for bed instead. Hotel guests are already sleeping and Japanese really
tend to respect the rule of being “quiet”. The design is Airport Business Class
themed. At around $40 for a Monday night, it’s one of the pricier options I’ve
stayed at. Seeing as you can bring luggage into the
sleeping area, you can lock your room with a card. But larger luggage will have
to stay outside your room. But here I have a bit more than a pod. I
have a room! Smocks ~whoever thought of brown? Toiletries~ towel, toothbrush and
washcloth- that’s it! I appreciate that they have to 110
voltage plug outlets. This is the first hotel to charge for rental adapters.
Because I brought my own adapter, I don’t like this idea. Ladies restroom or powder room ~ they’ve
got some facial moisturizers and stuff. Pretty standard from the other capsule
hotels. Hmm slippers to go into the toilet area. Not a fan of these. (Japanese)Toto
luxury toilet, nothing outside the ordinary if this is standard for Tokyo.
This is a Jacuzzi spa area~ no time for that. Shower stall- community soaps and
shampoos! I like that I can climb into these without having to bend down or
climb up a ladder. Then again I’m still getting on my knees to enter. You
obviously can HEAR the central air conditioning. Unlike other hotels I’ve stayed at, I can
HEAR it but I FEEL it. Okay let’s turn that sound off. This space
feels narrower than my pods but it has a small counter to put belongings I want
with me, like my camera bag. I can hang out and whisper chat with friends if I want…
I’ll probably never use this. I’m finding that luxury capsule hotels are defined
by having a higher ceiling. Okay let’s go inside my room~ I have two hangers for my
clothes and a huge flat-screen TV, which I can watch, but I need to wear the
headphones. ..Where are the headphones? I am five feet eight (inches) and I have about a foot
and a half reach before touching my door. Apologies guys it’s about 2 a.m. right
now I’m a bit tired tonight. Bedtime It’s 10pm and I’m staying in Asakusa at MyCube. It feels like a relatively new brand and
the price significantly less on the weekends ~ about the same as my other pod-style capsule hotels! Ooh nice design…
I love the spacious and vibrant or stylish design of the hallways. The
patterns excite my eyes which makes me feel all energetic and tingly. My room?Uh-
oh, it’s right next to the door… and the trash can. Here you’re allowed to bring
your luggage into the sleeping area. Store your luggage down below ~kind of
like storing your carry on in an overhead compartment of a plane. The noise– not so
cool. Steps if you’re a small person who needs help getting into your bed. Very
nice cubicle room space. Toiletries… Oh brown
smock again? Japanese Toto luxury toilet …which seems standard to Tokyo. Hang this door…. Toiletries jackpot!!!
They’ve got a huge stash here to fit your every needs…( in oil …moisturizers…)
I really appreciate that. Took these cool of amenities…the facial
cleanser…It’s really hard to feel lovely in these smocks. They are one-size-fits-all and they’re extra baggy. We can hang our clothes
inside by our head, which we don’t like but thankfully you can also hang it
outside! Control panel… Plug out — not so keen on this.
The size doesn’t quite fit… Time to go to bed!
Oooh memory foam. How’d this escape me? I need to do my Tokyo beauty ritual first. Thanks for watching let me know what you
think of these capsule hotels. Which one do you prefer? Stay tuned -I’ll also be
doing a roundup tour of my best capsule hotels of Tokyo and I’ll be sharing some
tips on booking them!
