The first licensed space capsule hotel in China opened in Xi’an, Shaanxi province, and receives wide popularity among youngsters.
Arranged on two floors with the layout of berths on a train, the hotel consists of 86 space capsule-like rooms. The 86 rooms are divided into nine areas, each named after a constellation. There is a snoring section as well. Every capsule is equipped with basic requirements like televisions and internet connections. The price for a one-night stay ranges from 58 yuan ($9.2) to 68 yuan.
According to the owner of the capsule hotel, since the hotel opened, the occupancy rate has remained at 100 percent. The space capsule-style hotel is popular because it is economical and conserves energy, meeting the needs and values of young people who care about the environment.
