The first capsule hotels appeared in Japan — well, everyone already knows about it … it’s boring)))). And can be found on Wikipedia at the link. I’ll tell you better about our capsule hotel: The hotel should be comfortable and have everything you need. It should be conveniently located, and all this — for reasonable money, if you agree – we are waiting for you here. We considered several design options, but decided to do it in the style of a «spaceship», because it is closest to the theme of a capsule hotel, and fits perfectly into a building with a VERY complex architecture. Thanks to Tatiana, our designer, for her creative, creative approach to business. Now there is a feeling inside the building that it is a space shuttle, and a leap into «hyperspace» and outer space is about to take place 🙂 Everything about comfort: we checked on ourselves, friends and those who agreed to help and participate — Thank you all very much.
Lighting is one of the key elements of our design. It is not so easy to ensure that it fulfills its main function — comfortable lighting and the design concept is preserved. I remember when choosing the brightness in the capsule, one says it’s dark, and the other one hurts his eyes))))); I had to collect a «consultation», as a result, after testing 8 light tapes with different brightness and color, the «depth» of the bookmark in the capsule, I managed to find the perfect option. Yes, almost everything was like that – the width of the workplaces, the location of the kitchen, the height of the reception desk…… As for the capsules themselves, this is a key element that allows you to feel like in a hotel room: there is everything you need, and, importantly, personal space. We tried to think through everything to the smallest detail. To do this, they drew a capsule and a focus group, gathered friends and relatives. The funny thing is, in the end, after a million man-hours, when it already seemed that EVERYTHING was thought out, we decided to order one capsule for the test and see what happened. For more than a week, we discussed every little thing in the already assembled capsule layout, 22 people of different nationalities, age, gender showed where and what should be in order to be comfortable. Now we are sure that all wishes are met, and the necessary little things are at hand. Each capsule is equipped with individual lighting, sockets (including USB); ventilation, shelves, a place for luggage, lockable. Additionally, we have provided a locker for storing individual items and clothes for each guest. As a result, we got a hotel where each element is balanced and located in its intuitive place (in any case, we believe in it, and also our guests from the Airbnb, tripadvaisor, expedia, booking.com, 2Gis and Yandex.)
My name is Sergey, I served in the Russian Armed Forces for many years. At the moment, he is a retired colonel. For more than 30 years of service, he served many places: in Germany, in the Far East, and in Siberia; there were also many foreign assignments: Yugoslavia, Germany, the UAE, Latin America…
I finished my service in Moscow, where I retired, and realized that I could not sit idle at all, after 30 years of intensive training in the army, it was not in my nature to sit on the couch and watch TV. Therefore, I began to look for a case to my liking.
About how it all started…
I retired, and realized that sitting around is NOT MY THING. I tried to get a job, but the employers were not very eager to take a pensioner. A friend has a mini-hotel, and then his daughter was in Japan and told about the format of the «capsule hotel» — it became interesting. I checked if we have such – it turned out that the market is not busy.
We checked the hotels in the center – prices for something more or less decent started from 5000r per night, and nothing special, clean and not rude….
We went to hostels, it was necessary to understand whether we could compete with them, and how strong the differences are. It turned out that it was cheap, and there is — cheap). Of the advantages — only the location and price.
It became clear that the idea of a good hotel in the center of Moscow for reasonable money should work. And it can only be realized by a capsule hotel, as something in between a hotel and a hostel — the price is slightly higher than that of a hostel, and the comfort is like in a hotel. Brilliant!!!
I am a military man, which means that what is said must be done. Thanks to the crisis: the choice of premises was huge, however, as always, there is a choice, but there is nothing to choose from: the price is exorbitant, then there are no communications, then the owner is crazy…
It took a good six months to find the premises, and another six months to repair. In the end, we found this wonderful place – on the Embankment, a 10-minute walk from the metro station Chkalovskaya/Kursk, 37 minutes from Red Square, and even a small park, and the embankment of the Moskva River, and quiet.
The next step was to find: who and what capsules offers. Furniture makers all offered to buy 2-tier beds, «because everyone does it, and capsule hotels are generally unclear what it is,» we had to explain that we DO NOT WANT a hostel.
There were a lot of things……
As a result of all these efforts, I am sure that we have succeeded) and you will be comfortable, our guests agree with us, you can find out their opinion by clicking on the links: Tripadvaisor, Airbnb, expedia, booking.com, 2Gis and Yandex.
