First capsule hotel in Vietnam popular choice for travelers

capsule hotelThe first capsule hotel – a hotel type originally developed in Japan that features extremely small “rooms” (capsules) intended to provide cheap, basic overnight accommodation for guests who do not require the services offered by more conventional hotels – has opened in Vietnam.

Located in popular Pham Ngu Lao Road in Ho Chi Minh City’s District 1, the 1-star Hong Kong Kaiteki Hotel offers 60 capsules at a size of 2 square meters each for $6 per night for the “basic” version and for $7.50 for the “luxury” version with wider doors.

Each capsule has air conditioner, TV, bed and other furniture, all of which is imported from Hong Kong. The hotel is owned by Chen Du, a Taiwanese, and in his opinion the hotel is “the right choice for those who go on vacation, work or relax in Ho Chi Minh City on a low budget.”

Each guest has a private locker with a password to keep personal luggage. The hotel has been operating for seven months and it is always fully occupied. In short time, it received a “fantastic” rating on booking site Agoda.com based on 114 reviews.
