KINN Is A New Muji-Style Capsule Hotel On South Bridge Road That Looks Straight Out Of Tokyo

KINN Capsule Hotel


While capsule hotels were first created for the Japanese salaryman, they’ve since gained popularity among all sorts of travellers for their unique and compact designs. Many of us revel in the idea of staying in one, and while one can’t simply jet off to Japan now, KINN Capsule Hotel is a new kid on the block right here in SG with pods reminiscent of the ones in Tokyo.

* Update: Restrictions apply until further notice – more details below.

For folks who’ve had their fair share of staying in capsule hotels, you’ll know that while most appear similar, you can actually tell the difference between a budget capsule hotel and a “luxurious” one. In a tiny living space, the quality of each and every amenity becomes all the more apparent.

Lying on the atas end of the spectrum is KINN, with its MUJI-style minimal, yet cosy capsule pods with an assortment of amenities to make your stay a comfy one.

There are three types of rooms to pick from here: all-female, all-male and mixed, priced from $40/night. On their booking page, only their four mixed dorms rooms are available at the moment, each with 10 beds.

For privacy, each capsule comes with pull-down blinds which you can leave open to give the illusion of more space, and close right before you go to bed. There are also two charging ports, a shelf to stow your day bags, and a pull-out round mirror – to make sure you don’t waltz out of your cosy capsule cave with a messy bedhead.

As for all your other barang barang and valuables, each pod booking also comes with a large locker with a digital lock to stash everything away safely.


Amenities – open communal area & stylish bathrooms

As much as you can stay in bed all day nua-ing or binging on your favourite Netflix series on your phone, be sure to roam the facilities. Down in the common area, social butterflies can lounge on a large sofa and chat with other staycationers – or when the pandemic finally settles, visitors from around the world.

In the washroom, find stylistic back-lit bathroom mirrors over dark sinks to get snap that #OOTD before you go out and explore the surrounding area. When you return to the hotel, there’s also a rain shower for a rejuvenating wind down to the day.

A washer, dryer and hair dryers will also be available for use, and each guest gets an amenity kit that comes with a towel, earplugs and dental kit – so there’s really not much you have to worry about for your stay here.

No capsule hotel is complete without a communal kitchen and the one at KINN is clean and simple with a fridge, microwave, water dispenser, toaster and perhaps most importantly, free snacks like iced gem biscuits to munch on.
