Capsule Hotel in the Netherlands

When I was about 14 years old I was fascinated by the science fiction novels and my favourite writer was then Jules Verne. And when I read one of his books about a man travelling all the way from Earth to the Moon in a metallic capsule I dreamed about doing that trip myself. So if you are just a bit like I used to be then, you will certainly love the Capsule Hotel in the Netherlands. First of all you should know it is called like that for a reason: it IS a capsule and all the tourists have to pay to see what it’s like to sleep in one of those.

Actually this capsule hotel is a recycled TEMPS capsule (totally enclosed motor propelled survival craft) that is placed on water and the customers are welcomed aboard. Because the capsule is very small in size ( about 4.25 m in diameter) you won’t get much comfort there, but if you are curious enough you will have to pay 70 euro for one night in a capsule with the basic living conditions, but if you want some more – like sheepskin in your hammock or a DVD player or even a disco ball if you want to, then you will have to pay up to 150 euro a night.
