If you’ve been putting that Swiss holiday away because of the high prices, here’s some good news. Switzerland just got its very first capsule hotel with a pretty affordable price tag! Capsule Hotel Lucerne is located right on the edge of the historic city center and just 10 minutes on foot from the train station. Being part of the Hirschengraben Coworking and Innovations Space, it doesn’t surprise that the hotel is channeling strong futuristic vibes.
Following the Japanese capsule hotel trend, the Lucerne location consists of self-contained pods that afford as much privacy and comfort as is possible in a very small space. The pods feature individually-controlled ventilation, a safe, sizeable mirror, dimmable mood lighting, and a charging station. You can also upgrade to a version with a flat TV or go for a Premium Capsule that looks a lot more like a conventional hotel room.
The best part about Capsule Hotel Lucerne is the impressive space design. Sliding your capsule doors open and crawling into a blue-lit pod, you won’t have much trouble imagining that you’re on board a spaceship. The corridors are covered in galactic prints from floor to ceiling, so it feels like the white capsules are actually floating weightlessly in space. Plus, everything is automated, even the check-in and check-out process. You’re the captain here!
If you need to do some remote work from Lucerne, here’s a pro tip. For a fee, you can access the co-working space at Hirschengraben and work alongside other digital nomads and local Swiss entrepreneurs. Maybe some new career opportunities will come out of it?
