Have you heard of pod hotels? Pod hotels are the newest trend in budget accommodation for the people on the go who are willing to stay in a small room with basic amenities.

Pod hotels have been patterned after the Japanese capsule hotels which is the practical way of getting through the day in a different place with only a bed. The typical size of a capsule cabin is just 2 m (6 ft 7 in) by 1 m (3 ft 3 in) by 1.25 m (4 ft 1 in)* and if you’re the claustrophobic kind then capsule accommodation is not the right one for you. You can try the pod hotel then.

Pod hotels are bigger in terms of size and can accommodate a maximum of two depending on the pod hotel’s design and size per pods. A typical double room pod will have a double bed size sleeping area, a flat tv, a tiny desk, hooks on the wall for clothing and jackets to be hung and a small bathroom. Gone are the mini-bar in the pod hotels because every space is maximized and the sole intention is to provide comfort with a low price. I think this is great for solo traveler, business folks and couples who do not mind sleeping in small rooms or even sharing a communal bathroom.

    They're like Tune Hotels of AirAsia, small but clean and tidy! We've stayed in Tune Hotel in Malaysia one time because we had a long layover and it was okay. Better than staying in the airport 🙂

    I haven't tried any pod hotels yet but I'm willing to give it a go when we visit Manhattan again. I want to actually stay in one and review it. 🙂 Thanks for the comment!
