Experience a Capsule Hotel in London: 9 Top Picks

Heading to one of the most exciting cities in the world and want to check out those cool capsule hotels that are super popular now? Then follow me!

Today I’ll help you find your favorite capsule hotel in London! I’ve worked for hours on this carefully-curated list which I ordered from most to least expensive so you can easily find the hotel of your dreams!

I don’t have to mention how crazy the prices in London are, and the more you wait to book your snug rooms, the more the prices will increase, so I do suggest booking early to avoid paying way too much!

As you’ll see these are not the original Japanese capsule hotels you’ve seen but are considered as per London standards. Moreover, some of the hotels in this post have a smaller score than I usually recommend, but since London doesn’t have many capsule hotels, I wanted you to have at least the main ones!

Let’s start!
