Sleepbox Hotel, located in the center of Moscow, Russia, is the first capsule hotel opened in the city.
The hotel has fifty narrow windows without windows, some of which can sleep up to three people and which can be booked for the night or for a few hours.
Accommodation for one night is reported to cost about $ 50.
Each modular capsule is equipped with a bed, shelf, lamp, small wardrobe and table, while the shared bathrooms are equipped with a shower.
Already a hit in Japan, the capsule hotel has a number of identical rooms measuring about 10 square meters, designed to provide cheap and basic accommodation for guests who do not need the services offered by more conventional hotels.
Space-saving hotels in Japan are often located near train stations and serve businessmen or commuters who have missed the last train home.
The lack of windows ensures that hotels can be built in such unlikely objects as metro stations.
A capsule hotel in central Tokyo boasts over 600 pods.
Many of them are used mainly by men, and some have separate bedrooms for men and women.
In the UK YO! Sushi founder Simon Woodruff came up with the idea for YO! hotel chain after seeing the capsule concept in Japan.
The first Yotel opened at the Gatwick South Terminal in 2007, offering tourists a base for payment.
Staff are kept to a minimum: guests are accommodated, while the purple pod rooms cover basic needs.
Simon Udrofo boasted about the high quality of the rooms, describing them as “the luxury liner corresponds to the Fifth Element”.
He added that they include flat-screen TVs, swivel beds and broadband internet access.
Yotel Managing Director Gerard Green said: “The rooms are very comfortable, well-equipped, with things like the leather you would get at Aston Martin
“It’s the kind of four- or five-star hotel.”
Since then, Yotels has opened at Terminal 4 in Heathrow and at Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam and near Times Square in New York.
