Are capsule hotels claustrophobic? Most capsule hotels are cozy but not cramped. You’ll have room to move around, and of course you’re free to get out of your capsule whenever you wish. A typical capsule has dimensions of something like 1.2m x 2m x 1m. Some “fancy” capsule hotels will also have pods that are closer to the size of a small room. All that said, these capsules are enclosed spaces, and so if you have severe claustrophobia, you do probably want to steer clear of capsule hotels.
