India’s First Pod-hotel Is In Mumbai and It’s Amazing

To fight the expensive stays and accommodations, Japan introduced capsule hotels aka pod hotels in 1979. The idea was to provide cheap, overnight stay to budget friendly travelers. An ideal choice for people that seek basic amenities without burning a hole in their pockets such as television, free wireless connection, and an electronic console.
Mumbai is one of the most expensive cities in India to live in. With its crazy price-hike and crammed infrastructure, Shalabh Mittal and Hiren Gandhi decided to recreate their pod-hotel experience from Singapore.
Urbanpod is a hassle-free hotel service that caters to the need of smart travelers. It is designed by Singapore’s leading architecture firm, Formwekz.
There are 140 pods with different rooms such as suite pods for couples, private pods, and an exclusive women-only pod. Each compound shares bathroom facilities to consume minimal area space and conserve resources. The pod-hotel has a dining area as well as complimentary breakfast service.
