Capsule hotel First Cabin in Japan

The First Cabin hotel in Kyoto-review

When I was visiting Kyoto, I decided to stay in the Capsule hotel First Cabin as I was curious to experience a style of accomodation which reminds a First class in plane. You know, imagine the feeling of being in a plane like a VIP, have a comfy bed and not pay a fortune for it. That is what can you experience in the First Cabin hotel. The staff wear costumes like a stewards which will immerse you into the authenthic feeling. 

BELIEVE OR NOT for this luxury you will pay as less as 40$ AUD per night!

If you going in a very peak season such as Christmas time then the prices can be around 60$ AUD. The Capsule hotel First Cabin is safe, clean and modern. If you are a budget traveller then definitely consider this option but even if you are ok with your money, the experience is just UNFORGETTABLE.

The hotel Interior

 The selection of the rooms in the First Cabin hotel is either a smaller Cabin just with a bed, similar like in Capsule hotel Nine hours in Tokyo or  a “mini room” with a bed, some lockable space under your bed, a little table and TV (the room is in the picture).

The place is quiet, there are headphones for the TV so people don’t make noise and you can sleep well. The hotel also provides a towell, pyjamas, slippers, mini toothpaste with a toothbrush and some other small items . The shower area is fully equipped with free toiletriess and also a hair drier.

 Do you need to charge your phone and don’t have the right electricity adaptor? No problem! You can borrow a universal adaptor to charge your phone or electornics from the reception desk.

The floors are separated for women and men. There is also a coin laundry machine if you are in need to wash your clothes. The First Cabin hotel has a breakfast area downstairs where can you meet with other travellers to not feel lonely if you travel alone. 🙂 

Near by are some nice restaurants with delicious fresh fish meals. I would recommend the First Cabin Kyoto hotel for all people who wants to experience non-traditional way of accomodation, be in a clean place with convinient location and save some money. I really loved the design of this hotel and I enjoyed watching Japanese channels or listened a peaceful Japanese music in the evening. Also, the First Cabin hotel has a free wifi!

As I have said price starts from 40$ AUD per night 

So, if you are ready, you can book it directly from my page and I am happy to provide you more information about Kyoto. 🙂 

Enjoy your staying. 😉
