For those who are not familiar with the definition of capsule hotel, I will briefly introduce it to you. Basically this kind of hotels instead of having classic rooms they offer to their guests a sleeping compartment more or less big, that can be totally closed giving you the privacy of a room. In the case of this hotel, there are available twenty wooden capsules, located in two narrow corridors and arranged on two levels. Each capsule is furnished with a very comfortable, and of course, single bed, a folding table, two small compartments to place your stuff, a fire extinguisher and an unmissable big flat screen TV connected to an audio jack right next to your pillow, so you will not disturb your neighbors. To store the backpacks and avoid a big mess in the hallways, they came up with the great solution to put lockers placed under each capsule, making it very spacious and safe since you can lock it as well.
What captured me stepping inside Capsule Hotel was the design of the place, so minimalist but engaging. The reception and the common area are placed together in the entrance and even if are not so big, are so luminous since one wall is fully covered by windows and there is enough space to hangout in the colorful sofas and chairs around the tables.
There is not a proper stove in the kitchen, but there are couple of kettles and a microwave to prepare some fast meal and a fridge is available to store your food. Moreover, all day long there is complimentary tea and coffee and in the morning if you are lazy to prepare your breakfast is possible to order it, choosing between five different set menus, for the price of 200 SOM.
Don’t forget, first thing after entering and handing your passport to the reception, is to lose your shoes, that are not allowed in the others areas, and change them with a pair of slippers. After it, just relax and enjoy your stay at Capsule Hotel!
