If you don’t mind sleeping in a tiny hotel room, you could save a lot of money on your next trip.
Something called a “pod hotel” offers small rooms with no frills, at low prices, and often in central locations.
You may have seen images of the stereotypical Japanese pod hotels, with miniscule cubicle rooms designed for business travelers on the go.
Now, several international brands are following the trend. The Pod Hotel in midtown New York, offers “pods” with shared baths for as little as $89 a night. Rooms with private baths start at $139.
At Heathrow and Gatwick airports, you can rent a room at Yotel from $51 to $82 dollars for four hours, and $10 per hour after that. The room includes a bed, bathroom with shower, and free Wi-Fi.
In the centers of Zurich, Budapest and London, you can find easyHotels for about $89 dollars per night.
