What is Capsule Hotel?
A capsule hotel (ã‚«ãƒ—ã‚»ãƒ«ãƒ›ãƒ†ãƒ«, kapuseru hoteru?) is a hotel system of extremely dense occupancy. Guest space is reduced in size to a modular plastic or fibreglass block roughly 2 m by 1 m by 1.25 m, providing room to sleep and little more, although facilities usually include a television and other electronic entertainment. These capsules are then grouped and stacked, two units high. Luggage is usually stored in a locker away from the capsule. Privacy is maintained by a curtain at the open end of the capsule but noise pollution can be high. Washing facilities are communal and there are often restaurants, or at least vending machines, and other entertainment facilities.
I think this is quite a good concept for visitors who has a budget especially for backpacker who want to save cost and budget living. Some said it looks very much like a coffin, some said it looks like space cabin. Whatever it is, this is definitely unique.
