IF THE BOX FITS, SLEEP IN IT!

Is the new and innovative Sleepbox Wooden Pods Hotel coming to a town near you?

Could be, this unique hotel concept is taking hold in countries around the world. This particular hotel can be found near the Moscow railway station. I came across this bizarre bit of architecture while cruising my new love, inthralld., yes...lower case i, no e and with a period. I'm not sure how long they have been 'enthralling' readers with the ideas and innovations of the interior design and architecture world. As always, I am usually late to the party, but now that I am here it's a joy to catch the cutting edge designs that designers from around the world are sharing. Rachel posted this hotel, thought I'd pass it along...ENJOY!
Hotel accommodations that appeal to multiple styles of travelers are starting to appear all over the world, and the creativity in some of the “pod-like” overnight stays is impressive. Packing people into tight quarters for their sleeping time is the perfect solution for those on the go for business travel or sightseeing individuals in a new country.
Wooden Sleepbox Pods are the next big thing, and their latest location comes to you by way of Belorussky Railway Station, in Moscow. With less than 60 rooms total, these spaces fit into tight quarters and house the necessary elements of a comfortable stay. A TV, mirror, storage, and of course bed all fit into the rooms while the bathroom pods are shared between floors. Shared spaces at the hotel include a smoking lounge, laundry facilities, reception and an information area equipped with iPads for guests.

Now I'm not saying the Sleepbox would be my first choice when planning a vacation, but then again I'm 48 years old. However, if I were 21 and my suitcase were on my back and my mode of transportation were 3rd class rail....I would definitely be sleeping in the BOX. One, it's as cheap as staying in a hostel. Two, it's cleaner than most hostels and Three, your box locks...which is always a huge plus when traveling cheaply anywhere and anytime. 

Investigate it for yourself and see if it fits your needs, you never can tell. If the sleepbox fits, then I say wear it.

ENJOY!
