Capsule Hotel Elevates Micro-Lodging With Saunas For Guests

Tokyo just got another micro-lodging hotel—this time with saunas added to the experience. It was designed by Schemata Architects, the firm responsible for the 9-hour capsule hotel franchise to which the new property, °C (doe-shi in Japanese), belongs. 

Not every guest has to stay the night. With hourly rates, °C allows for people to spend as little as one hour enjoying a sauna and relaxing in a sleeping pod. The hotel is open 24 hours a day. It has a total of 162 rooms—60 for women and 100 for men. The saunas are also gender-specific. The first hour of sauna use costs ¥1,000 ($9) and then ¥500 ($4.5) for each hour after.

With °C, Schemata wants to shift perceptions regarding micro-lodging in Japan, from a cheap stay to a pampering experience.
