    Sadly capsule hotels like this haven’t faired at all well in Japan.
    The original Nakagin capsule hotel in Ginza, Tokyo failed as a hotel and quickly became residential and commercial apartments. These days it’s in a very sad state of repair and is set to be demolished any time soon.

    Where the “kapuseru hoteru” concept has been successful is with the small multi cubical capsule and almost all of these are refits using older traditional concrete commercial buildings (admittedly though the coffin sized capsules them selves being modular) more suited to crashing out after missing the last train than for any R&R use
