Sleepbox: new airport micro-hotels offer travellers rest by the hour

Your plane has been cancelled, or maybe just delayed. You’re tired, you’re annoyed and now you’re stuck at the airport with a long wait ahead. All you want is somewhere clean and quiet to lay your head, read or surf the web in peace.

Up until now your options were limited. You could either check-in to an airport hotel, which would cost you a pretty penny, or find a little corner of the airport to curl up and kip in, which would undoubtedly lead to a bad night of semi-sleep.

Thinking inside the box

Now there is a third option. Enter the Sleepbox, a secure, comfortable ‘micro-hotel’ with a bed, wi-fi and electricity. Simple, functional and stylish, the Sleepbox is an ideal option for the weary traveller who wants a safe haven to rest for one hour or more, without paying through the nose.

Rest by the hour

The Sleepbox can be hired by the hour meaning it’s a great place to retreat from the airport crowds at any time, get some shut eye, or surf the web in peace.

Moscow has been the first airport to install Sleepboxes and so far the response has been very positive. It’s expected that other airports, and even train stations and other public places will follow suit.

Here at Skyscanner we love the idea of livin’ in a box – if only just for a few hours – and we’ll be testing out a Sleepbox and reporting back soon. Stay tuned! For now – watch the video below:
