Vancouver's property prices became a well-known phenomenon when average apartments started costing millions. Canada proposed a two-year ban on buying real estate for foreigners to try and stop this trend.
Thus we arrived at the brilliant capsule hotel concept that solves the aforementioned problem and which we dearly love for its practicality and affordability.
The Panda Pod Hotel is Vancouver's first venture into the world of cozy capsules (Canada’s first capsule hotel was the vibrant Pangea Pod).
Not only cozy but cute, too, thanks to the panda theme. The concept is a brainchild of the proudly Canadian woman-owned business.
The hotel is a few blocks from the Richmond–Brighouse SkyTrain rapid transit system to take you directly to downtown Vancouver.
And if you are an aviation fan, you'll be happy to hear that the capsule hotel is a stone's throw away from the Vancouver International Airport, and it's a perfect spot for plane spotting.
