Time Capsule Hotel PenangTime Capsule Hotel Penang (6 July, 2015)

Time Capsule Hotel (GPS: 5.419575, 100.333876) is a capsule hotel in George Town, Penang. This is perhaps the first ever capsule hotel in the city. Time Capsule Hotel is located along Chulia Street. It occupies the five-storey Wisma Sri Wani which has been renovated for the hotel. It holds the distinction of running the first capsule hotel in the country, and is also the equipment provider for interested parties intending to establish capsule hotels elsewhere in Malaysia.

At time of writing, the hotel has some eighty rooms on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd floor, with the top floor still undergoing refurbishment. There is also a Female Only floor exclusive for woman travellers. The ground floor houses Little Nap Coffee Bar.

I visited Time Capsule Hotel on 6 July 2015 and was given a tour of its facilities. The first place we visited was the shoerack, where guests change from the outside shoes into sandals.

Time Capsule Hotel offers communal bathrooms, segregated between men and women, which are as plush as that in any upscale establishments. Each guest is provided a luggage-size locker to store their belongings. Upon checking in, guests are given a carrier bag containing toiletries, headphone and other sundry items. These they are to return when checking out, but the carrier bag is theirs for keeps.
