Sleepbox Hotel Tverskaya. First capsule hotel opens in Russian capital

Posted by on Jan 30, 2013 in Hotel NewsNo comments

Small rooms, narrow windows and little furniture –it’s a brand-new capsule hotel in central Moscow. Located just minutes away from Kremlin on Tverskaya street, close to railway station,  the new Sleepbox hotel is the first of its kind in Moscow.

Based on the concept of Japanese “capsule hotels,” each 2–meter sleepbox contains a bed, shelf, lamp, small wardrobe, table, mirror and Wi-Fi of course. That’s enough space to sleep and work if needed for one night.

The Sleepbox hotel offers standard rooms with double beds (about 85 $) and suite bathrooms (the capsules don’t have bathrooms). But this room will cost almost two times more – around $160.

In Japan, such hotels may have up to 600 sleepboxes and they are usually located near railway stations.  One such hotel was installed at Moscow’s SheremetyevoAirport in April, but it has not proved particularly popular due to its location.
