Recently, we looked at a hotel made out of a shipping container that moves locations. Now, this Sleepbox Hotel features small, mobile capsules that can be installed anywhere there is space as long as they are connected to the power supply.

It was designed by Russian studio Arch Group, who opened their first Sleepbox capsule a couple of years ago at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport. Dezeen reports that they filled an old building in the city centre with the modular rooms to create the hotel.

The Sleepbox Hotel offers a unique experience for travelers, while also boasting low prices and an excellent location. It has four floors, with a reception, information zone, lobby, and lockers on the first floor.

The information zone features maps and iPads with internet connection affixed to the wall so visitors can check train times or find out where places of interest are located. On the second and third floors there are wooden double Sleepboxes with beds, LED reading lamps, and sockets. On the fourth floor there are single black and white boxes with in-built TVs.

Futuristic-looking showers and toilet cabins are located on every floor, with round occupancy indicators that shine green when the cabin is free and red when someone is inside. Click through to see some images of the Sleepbox Hotel:
