The Pod @ Beach Road: Boutique Capsule Hotel

first of all

thanks to Agoda

 

the other capsule hotel i booked

was over-booked

so the hotel actually offered me

a downgrade to mix dorm

which i was not quite happy with

 

so i opted for this one

The Pod @ Beach Road

an alternative offered by Agoda

or refund with 10% compensation

 

so i readily took The Pod

as it looked really good

with high rating and

quite some positive reviews

 

it was pretty easy to get here

Exit B from Bugis MRT

turn right along Raffle Hospital

across and walk along the bar street

 

turn left at the junction

where Pan Pacific Hotel is

and the hostel is right opposite

Park Royal Hotel

 

in other words

look out for

Raffle Hospital and

Pan Pacific Hotel

from Exit B at Bugis station

 

it is located at level 3

just press the bell

 

the check-in kiosks

which requires passport scanning

the staff nevertheless

gave me a hand

and showed me the way

The Pod @ Beach Road: Boutique Capsule Hotel

 

hello!!

The Pod @ Beach Road: Boutique Capsule Hotel

 

the locker is located

below the lower bed

with card lock

huge enough for luggage

i would say

since it is the size of

half a single bed

 

so i was technically

throwing everything i need

upstairs before i lock my locker

 

the card is pretty important

as it gives access to

the main door downstairs

the room door, the personal locker

as well as the shoes locker outside

cozy!!

and with privacy

yet minus the squeeze

the night before at Saigon

i slept at 3 AM and woke up at 6

so it didn’t take me long to fall asleep

but still i was up at 6 AM

thank goodness to the alarm clock of

my Korean room mate downstairs

as i had to continue working

The Pod @ Beach Road: Boutique Capsule Hotel

 

hello roomies

yeah i am that kind who

would always prefer upper bed

in spite of the climbing

thank goodness i got one

and this bed of mine was

actually higher than my neighbour

the bathroom

is bigger than expected

and towel is provided

it felt horrible where

some hostels separate

their shower and toilet

into row of tiny cubicles

the breakfast area

or the common area

i skipped breakfast as

i was busy typing away

alright

being an anti-socialist

with loads of backlog

i wasn’t in mood for

such a social-able breakfast

The Pod @ Beach Road: Boutique Capsule Hotel

 

i will definitely come back

for more….. concerts

The Pod @ Beach Road: Boutique Capsule Hotel

 

being in a strategic area

to explore Singapore

day and night
