In the Kamiyanagicho district, the First Cabin Kyoto Karasuma is tucked down a narrow back street just a stone’s throw from Shijo metro station. Free Internet access is available all throughout this modern, capsule-style hotel.

Positive Reviews

Location couldn't be more convenient

With bus, train and metro stops pretty much right on the doorstep; all kinds of shopping and dining opportunities very close by, and more temples and shrines in striking distance thanyou can shake a stick at; it's easy to see why so many visitors have hig

Gender separate sleeping areas are a big hit

The vast majority of female guests who stayed here greatly appreciated the fact that the sleeping compartments were organised into designated areas on separate male and female-only floors.

Spick and span throughout

Numerous visitors have noted that the interiors here, from the sleeping compartments to the bathroom/shower facilities, look and feel supremely fresh and clean all of the time.

Negative Reviews

Cabins have no doors

Instead of a door, the sleeping compartments here have a curtain which you pull down like a shop shutter whenever you want some privacy. Unsurprisingly, very few guests warmed to this idea as curtains afford very little in the way of privacy or indeed sou

Showers and sleeping areas are far apart

A great many guests have been left unimpressed by the relative locations of the showers and the sleeping areas – they're on completely different floors!
