Great Value Capsule Hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 22, 2012

Hotel River Side is great for budget travelers and those who want to try a capsule hotel. They have both capsules and regular hotel rooms. The capsules are cheaper but both are very affordable. Capsules are typically around 2200 yen (sometimes even cheaper if they have special deals) and single rooms are around 3900 yen. Women cannot stay in capsules but they can stay in the regular hotel rooms.

Upon entry you put your shoes in a locker and take the key to the check-in desk. They will take that key and give you a locker key for a small locker to put your things in. For men, you can use the sauna.

Until midnight, all guests can use the internet, watch tv, read manga, and get free drinks from the drink bar. In the morning, all guests can have free toast.

You can check in until midnight, which is great, because you don't have to worry as much about time during the day. Also, once you check in if you plan on going out to a bar, club, etc. you can get a key that will allow you to come in at any time during the night (otherwise the hotel is locked until morning). You must checkout by 10am.

I stayed in a capsule for the first time here and was surprised at how spacious and comfortable it was. Not at all claustrophic! It's great for budget travel and located just a short walk from Okayama Station.
