Nine Hours Boutique Hotel

Designed by Tokyo-based company Design Studio S, the Nine Hours (9h) is a unique boutique hotel in Kyoto, Japan. The hotel offers luxury and minimalist aesthetics in a tiny living space, featuring 125 rooms (capsule units), personal lockers, showers, and a lounge.

The concept of this capsule hotel is based on a comfortable place to rest while in transit in big cities in Japan; 1 hour shower, 7 hours of sleep, and a one hour break = 9h total. Guests can spend up to 17 hours in a single stay.

The hotel’s interior design consists of clean lines, crisp White color with a touch of Black, and beautiful graphical icons to guide you through the different areas.Each capsule includes high-quality bed sheets, slippers, toothbrush, shampoo & conditioner, body soap, bottled water and a smart system by Panasonic, where according to the time set, the light will wake you up.
