So you arrive in Moscow without a hotel booking or you've got some hours waiting around between travelling further by bus, train or plane.
You're on a budget and you're tired and you don't want to be parted from your luggage.
Originally designed in 2009 by the Arch Group, the first Sleepboxes opened at Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport two years later.
Now the Sleepbox Hotel Tverskaya is open for the weary traveller who wants no more than a comfortable and safe place to stay and rest for anytime between half an hour and many hours.
The concept is based on backpacker prices with many hotel facilities.
Sorry there's no room service.
Each Sleepbox is 2m long x 1.4m wide and 2.3m high.
The bed is 2m long x 0.6m wide.
Each unit is equipped with a ventilation system, sound alerts, LCD, TV, WiFi and sockets for a laptop and phone charging.
Sound like fun doesn't it.
I can see you packing your bags already.
Before you hop on the plane,
there's more to know here...

Clean, dry, secure, and with power and communications? I've done much worse. Would make a good stopover on a long trip when all you need is some rest.ReplyDelete
What a brillant idea!!ReplyDelete
Sort of like cubicles on a train only more private,flasher and with doors. Like the simplicity of the name too. Says it all really.ReplyDelete
Great idea! I wonder what the U.S. market would be?ReplyDelete
