The bathrooms come with a wide range of amenities and other services.
As GLANSIT Group also has a lodging facility in Akihabara, Tokyo, and some people stay at GLANSIT when they visit Tokyo.

The reason for its popularity is that although it's a capsule hotel, its facilities are almost identical to those of a hotel.
There is a lockable cloakroom for large suitcases, a women's lounge in the building with a free tea server, magazines and books, and a terrace lounge on the roof.
There is also a laundry room on the bathroom floor, as well as a variety of chargers and tablets for rent, not things you find in a capsule hotel.
