A capsule hotel, or a pod hotel, is a type of hotel developed in Japan that features many small bed-sized rooms known as capsules. Originally, capsule hotels were marketed as cheap and basic accommodation for travellers who are unable to afford the rooms offered by other more traditional hotels or hostels.

The first capsule hotel opened in Japan in 1979, and since then the idea has spread to other territories across the globe, Singapore included. Capsule hotels are popular among travellers who visit Singapore and even local Singaporeans who are looking for a more affordable staycation venue.
