  • ngày 2014/07/23

VietNamNet Bridge - Located in Pham Ngu Lao Road in HCM City’s District 1, the Capsule Hotel is a high-class inn, providing capsules that are adequate for one person.

Each capsule has an area of 2m2 but it has air conditioner, TV, bed and other furniture, which are imported from Hong Kong.

The hotel is owned by Chen Du, a Taiwanese man, and it is the right choice for those who go on vacation, work or relax in HCM City on a low budget.

"Two years ago, I went to Ho Chi Minh City and was intrigued by the place. I returned to Taiwan to talk to my family about my plan to settle down here. With my parents’ consent, I came here to invest in this capsule hotel," Chen Du says.

The hotel has six rooms, each with ten capsules. Each guest has a private locker with a password to keep personal luggage. There are two types of capsules: common capsules at the price of VND120,000 ($6)/day and luxury capsules with wider doors, at a price of VND150,000 ($7.5)/day.

The hotel has been operating for seven months and it is always fully occupied.
