The country’s financial capital Mumbai is known for its crammed apartments. Now, there is new resting place in the city where travellers can unwind at affordable prices.
Urbanpod, a newly opened pod hotel will charge you between Rs 2,500 – Rs 2,900 for its smallest pod which is about 3.02 sq metre in area.
Hiren Gandhi, Co-founder & Director at Urbanpod said that new-age travellers don’t want a lavish lobby but hotels build it in a way which adds to the bill of the customer.
“Travelers look forward to places that are – affordable, hygienic and provide safe accommodation at a centrally-located place. It makes sense in Mumbai as our real estate costs sky high,” Gandhi added.
Each Pod comes with a bed, personal locker, Plasma TV, personal reading light, power socket, hangers, a dresser, free wi-fi, air-conditioning facility and an air-purifier.
The hotel claims to be a great option for single women travelers, apart from the business and leisure travelers. There is a cafeteria where you can have your complimentary breakfast and spend the rest of your day.
When you check-in at the hotel, your luggage is stored in a separate individual-locker facility and the non-attached bathroom suites are separate-facilities.
