A "capsule" hotel — featuring science-fiction design and bedrooms just long enough for most people to lie down in, in Xi'an, capital of central China's Shaanxi province — has been doing very good business.
The report said the budget hotel near the Shanghai Railway Station was the first capsule hotel in China to be built to international standards.
All of the capsules are imported from Japan where capsule hotels originated, and each is equipped with independent sockets, clocks, lights, TV and wireless Internet service. The hotel also has a public lavatory, shower room, smoking room and shared guest room.
Like most of capsule hotels in Japan, the one in Shanghai is for men only. The hotel includes 86 "capsule"in nine areas in accordance with the 12 constellations, among others, the ‘Leo' capsules are reserved for those who snore.
The hotel charges 59-65 yuan (about 9.4-10.3 U.S. dollars) per person per night. The 480-square-meter building consists of 86 capsules in nine rooms named after star signs to reflect the space theme.
The "Capsule hotel" concept originated in Japan, featuring a large number of extremely small "rooms" intended to provide cheap and basic overnight accommodation for office workers who need emergency accommodation.
