Sleepbox Hotel Tverskaya was created as affordable accommodation in a prime location close to the Kremlin in Moscow, a heavily visited attraction about one block from the railway station. A cross between a hotel and a hostel, the hotel was able to keep costs down by bringing in the modular Sleepboxes rather than building out the vacant building. With the individual modules, guests have more comfort and privacy than in a regular hostel, yet they pay a comparable nightly rate.

Each of the cozy modules can comfortably sleep one or two people. Inside, the rooms are illuminated with LED lights, with extra electrical sockets for charging devices or plugging in laptops. The second and third floors have wooden double Sleepboxes, while the fourth floor houses singular white boxes, which include a  TV set. The hotel’s first floor is met with a sleek white reception module, giving a futuristic feel. Along the reception is also a lobby clad with informational iPads mounted to the walls, which provide visitors with internet access, maps and local attractions.

The Arch Group has taken their modular rooms to the next level, by joining them together to make an affordably comfortable hotel.
