Over the years, travel trends have come and gone. This year, a new trend is on the horizon: micro hotels. These properties are located in some of the most captivating destinations in the world and attract the savviest of travelers.

What exactly is a micro-hotel? Micro hotels have really tiny rooms which provide a budget-friendly option to travelers while maintaining high-quality amenities. 

The idea for micro hotels came from Japanese capsule pods which first appeared in Osaka during the 1970s. The capsule pods were catered to businessmen who were working during the day and lived far from home, so sometimes needed a space where they can take a shower and sleep. 

Microhotels today are popping up globally and are being designed with functionally and style at the forefront.
