Located in Kyoto, Japan, the Nine Hours hotel is different to every other hotel you've ever stayed in. Rather than have a private room with an ensuite bathroom you share a communal bathroom and closet area, but get your own individual pod to sleep in. Whilst it might not be appealing to those looking for a romantic break, if you are in the area and want to explore then this place would be the perfect base to do it from. Apparently each pod has ambient music and lighting that will make you fall asleep straight away.
