Panda Pod Hotel is Greater Vancouver’s first “pod”-style hotel. It’s located in Richmond at 6940 No. 3 Road. Panda Pod is approximately 15 minutes by vehicle from Vancouver International Airport, and only a seven-minute walk from Richmond-Brighouse station (part of the Canada Line rapid-transit system that connects to the airport). Panda Pod maintains a #1 customer rating on Tripadvisor in the Specialty Lodgings category.

Pod hotels (also known as capsule hotels) originated in Japan in the late 1970s. Their purpose is to provide affordable accommodation to both travelers and local residents.
Each pod is spacious enough to comfortably accommodate a typical adult, yet compact enough that guests pay only a fraction of the rate of a traditional hotel room — often as much as 75% less!

Guests have access to a shared shower, restroom facilities, massage chairs, and laundry facilities. Guests will also have access to free parking and free storage.
