Okachimachi Station Hotel
Ranked #102 of 124 Hotels / Ryokan in Taito
Reviewed 11 January 2013

As an international traveller and first time visiting Japan, I went to Okachimachi Hotel for experiencing the capsules. Overall I am happy with the choice, there was nothing bad with the hotel but obviously it is not luxurious.

The staff is nice, though they don't really speak English (as everywhere in Japan) so be prepared. The hotel is clean and well located for exploring Tokyo. The capsules are spacious comparing with other hotels, have common bathrooms, they have a safebox and 14'' TV inside, fresh linen every day and a nice yukata (robe) to wear while you are at the hotel (check pics). The price was 2200 Yen (student price, they never asked me for my student ID) per day which was the cheapest I could find close to the centre of Tokyo. There may be some cheaper places but Tokyo is an enormous city and if they are too far away you'll spend more money going around with the metro than for sleeping.

Showers for the capsules are located at the ground floor and there is a free warm bath as well, only available for men, that is awesome for relaxing after walking around the city. Internet is available everywhere and they offer 2-3 PCs at the reception for public use, together with some vending machines.

Around the hotel there are many convenience stores (e.g. 24/7) for food, drinks etc. and there are two Japanese fast food chain restaurants (such as Matsya and Yoshinoya).

We booked a semi-double room at a cost of 5470yen, which is really a large single bed. The room was set up for one person: one pillow, one tea cup, one robe, one towel, one pair of slippers. We had to ask for an extra pillow. Part of me felt that we were being charged more because there was two of us and we were just getting what a single person would.

There was a small ensuite, that had a bathtub as well as shower, free razor, toothbrush and soap. A teapot and access to hot water in the corridor and a tv (all japanese). There is a communal bath though is is for men only. Smoking was permitted in the room, though it did not smell of smoke.

Location: shops and cheap eating places near by. Would be 6-7 min walk from Okachimachi train station once you know what you are doing, but it took us 15 mins, with repeated asking of directions to find it. Easiest way to get to it: leave by north exit, turn right at entrance and walk to the corner. Turn right then immediately cross the orad at the crossing. Turn right and keep walking along showa-dori past the police box until you see the hotel on your left (small sign).
It is convenient for getting around Tokyo and easy access via the JR line to Tokyo station. Though I would not recommend trying it, we got from the front entrance of the hotel to the correct platform at (the large) Tokyo station ready to get the Naritta express to the airport, in 23 mins.

This is a generic hotel for those who just want a place to lay their heads.
