If space is not object, this new hotel in Sydney could be right up your alley.
It’s safe to say that Australia has well and truly embraced Japanese cuisine, and now we appear to be adopting its unique style of accommodation.
Australia is set to get its first ‘capsule’ hotel – Japan’s most loved style of lodging – in Sydney later this year. When Bar Century on George Street was forced to close in February, Giant Design saw it as an opportunity to create something different and think outside the box, if you will.
Ed Kenny from Giant Design said, “given how long capsules have been around we’re amazed no-one has done it here before”.
Opting for a first-class style rather than the more traditional front-loading capsule, Giant Design scoured the world in search of the right manufacturer, and finally selecting one in Asia that produced a suitably luxe version. With prices ranging between $35 and $50 per night – depending on the bed size and ease of entry and exit – these pods seem like a pretty sweet deal!
What do you think of this concept? Would you sleep in a capsule?
