    Thx for this look at the Pod Hotel, Michele. I don’t think I’d like it as it really looks claustrophobic. But I can see it being useful to people under certain circumstances.

      It does look a bit like tight quarters doesn’t it? But it’s very tempting to get good wifi as it’s hard to come by at Mexico City Airport. I’ll give it a try and report back!

    These are like the capsule hotels in Japan. I would never be able to sleep in one of them. They look like the tubes you go through for an MRI. It’s a good idea, but not for me.
    Thanks for the article.

    We will be in Mexico City early next year. What fun it would be to try one of these out.

    I like this concept and think it could be so useful under the right circumstances. The pods look clean and cozy, the perfect spot for some relaxation if you have some time to kill in the Mexico city airport.

    These look so cool! Too bad they don’t sleep two — now *that* would be economical. However, US$35 is about CAD$45, times two plus tax, is a bit more than the Ramada airport hotel, where we usually stay.

      Yes, it does seem to be a much better deal for one person than for two. Thanks for the tip on the Ramada Airport Hotel, it sounds like a great deal!
