||If you are planning a short business trip or traveling alone, check into a capsule hotel. It is fun, futuristic and in some cases even economical.
Yes, you understood correctly: modular hotels. No matter how strange it may sound, it looks according to the name. The living room consists of a small capsule, in which there is only the most necessary: a bed, lighting and a place to store things. Most of these hotels have a shared toilet, some have a spa and cafe.
The trend was born in Japan. The first capsule hotels consisted of very small rooms, which were small boxes made of fiberglass. The very first was the Capsule Inn in Osaka, opened in 1979. Not everyone will like rooms of such a small size. On the other hand, the popularity of capsule hotels arose due to its cheapness and privacy, which cannot be obtained in an ordinary hostel.
A night at the Ninehours Hotel in Kyoto costs from $ 49, you have to sleep in a capsule. If you feel like taking a nap, then for just $ 9 an hour you can relax, and for $ 7 you can take a shower (shampoo, soap and towels are included).
Upon check-in, the guest is given the key to the locker in which you can store your things.
Lockers are needed because capsule residents change daily. If you want to move in for a few days, you have to move out and move in again.
Each capsule has a sleep control system that mimics the dawn, facilitating the process of awakening. Each capsule is made of fiberglass, making them easy to stack on top of each other.
The CityHub Hotel in Amsterdam also offers capsule bedrooms, with only a double bed, an audio system and decorative lighting controlled by the app.
Room price - from $ 40 per night. Each room has a small window for those suffering from claustrophobia.
Each guest is given a special key-bracelet for check-in, which automatically opens the door if you bring it to the scanner.
The hotel also has a shared bath and CityHub bar.
Singapore's Capsule Hotel offers something like bunk beds. For greater privacy, the capsule provides a curtain that can be pulled back. WiFi and laptops are also available.
Room price - from 64 dollars per night. The hotel offers many options, ranging from double cells to capsules “women only”.
The Time Capsule Hotel in Malaysia is one of the most futuristic ones we have seen.
Each capsule has a bed, sockets for charging devices and a smart TV on which you can play games and watch TV shows.
