This is an adaptation of the Japanese 'Capsule Hotel's but instead of a pod stacked two high you have your own private room. Its the length of a single bed and the width of two single beds so you have space to store your luggage inside your room. I kept mine in the luggage storage room when I first arrived as check in was after 3pm.
You change into slippers and they provide sleeping shorts and tshirt with towels and toiletries in the room. You must return all clothing and towels or you will be charged.
The room has a big flat screen tv with english/chinese channels. There is no sound and can only be heard with headphones provided to keep the rooms more quiet.
The hotel is seperated by gender and all rooms are for one person only so if travelling with friends or a partner the only common area is lounge.
Like Japanese hotels the bathrooms where communal showers. You have can have an open shower with just a stool to sit on or a private cubicle. There are also several types of spas and steam rooms to try out. Sleep quality was very good and relaxing.
An only small complaint was I asked if I could move my room away from the entrance to the mens area which was also near the bathrooms, as both made noise. They only offered me earplugs which were useless but the noise didnt bother me after that and I slept well.
They also give you a water bottle each day and provide breakfast which is a cheese and ham sandwich with raisins, if you dont want the ham just let them know ahead.
Its easy to find from the train/MRT station and the bus companies are also by the MRT station. There is a night market with lots of food a short walk away, ask the staff to direct you, who can also speak reasonable english.
When I was leaving they took a polaroid photo to put on their wall for all the foreign visitors. This gave it a nice touch and personal record of my visit. They let me leave my luggage back in the storage room. I love this concept of Japanese style capsules and wish this was in every city.
