Is the concept of the Tokyo capsule hotel exportable? Yes, and Sleep box Hotel Tverskaya, opened in January 2013, is proof of that. Significantly larger than their Japanese counterparts, these wood design capsules are sleeping compartments that can accommodate one or two people, as imagined by Aleksey Goryainov and Mikhail Krymov, who founded Arch Group studio in 2007.
Toilets and bathrooms are located on the upper floor. For those looking for snacks, there are vending machines and restaurants and cafés on Tverskaya-Yamskaya street, one of Moscow's most vibrant areas for eating out. On the top floor are six small bedrooms of Spartan comfort, outfitted with polished concrete floors. The Sleepbox Hotel is a three-minute walk from Belorussky station where you can take the Aeroexpress to Sheremetyevo International Airport.
