Australia’s first capsule hotel opens in Sydney

Book now to sleep in your very own boutique pod.

Almost a year ago we heard word that Bar Century on Sydney's George Street was being reinvented as a bar/capsule hotel. Now we're happy to report that the hotel has officially opened.

Aptly named The Capsule Hotel, the premise behind this venture was to provide budget-friendly boutique accommodation in the heart of the CBD. At $50 per pod per night, or $65 for a double capsule, the price point is no doubt affordable for its central location.

The capsules themselves stray from your traditional Japanese pods, taking on a more interstellar industrial feel on the outside. Inside, the decor comprises of crisp white linens, futuristic lines and yawning mirrors.

70 capsules are available to book with either front or side entrances, and there are numerous deluxe queen-sized beds to book for those seeking a roomier sleep.


All capsules are fitted with a flat screen TV, in-room safe and light dimmer and are air conditioned. Each pod also has access to a locker for belongings that perhaps don't quite fit in your confined space.

24-hour access to your accommodation is provided via a secure swipe entry key and, as with most budget accommodation, facilities such as kitchens space and bathrooms are communal.

Rooms/pods inside The Capsule Hotel are available to book now on and will shortly be available on
