9h Capsule Hotel i Kyoto, Japan

If you want to stay a night at a capsule hotel while in Japan the 9h nine hours Capsule Hotel Kawaramachi is a great option. This is a nice and clean place and not like many of the capsule hotels i Tokyo who mostly filled by drunk salarymen. This place is more of a different option for travelers as well as some young people that has missed the last train home to Osaka or to the suburbs of Kyoto.
You can stay here from 1 to 9 hours and the price range from 1300-4500 yen depending on how long time you stay. As you check in you leave your shoes in the lockers, leave your luggage at the reception and head upstairs for baths, showers, and the 2 cubic meters capsule to sleep in. You get a T-shirt to wear and of course men and women stay in different areas. There are snacks to buy as well. The location is great right down town close to sights, shopping and nightlife and is open 24 hours. Book a capsule or get more info on the homepage; http://9hours.jp/
