What does it really mean to stay in a Pod hotel?

The concept of pod hotel is to rip the hotel of its unrequired facilities and compress it down for a single person’s utility. The rooms measure 7 by 4 feet in length and height.
The idea which was originally for accommodating guests for a place to sleep has now gained so much popularity all over the world. Countries like China, Belgium, Iceland, Philippines and Hong Kong have started to implement it in the past 5 years, not just to accommodate more people in a chunk of an area but also to let them experience the peculiarity of it.
