What’s the price? So, how do much does a night at a capsule hotel cost? Not a lot. Capsule hotels are cheap compared to a standard hotel in Japan. Expect to pay between 2,000 and 5,000 yen/night, although keep in mind that prices might be higher during peak tourist seasons. Within Japan, capsule hotels are popular among Japanese business travelers on a budget…or people who missed the last train home and need a place to rest for a few hours! If you’re in Japan for an extended stay, some capsule hotels will even rent to you by the week or the month.
