Excerpt from TravelPulse
While Japan may have mastered the pod or capsule hotel concept - a tight space that serves as little more than a place to sleep for travelers on the go - the concept is picking up steam around the world.
Mexico City International Airport is the latest to tap into travelers' desire for a convenient, affordable place to rest their head with the opening of izZzleep in Terminal 1.
The facility, which bills itself as intelligent hospitality, has 40 capsules as well as a private locker area and bathrooms.
Each capsule sleeps one person only and comes with little more than a bed, a high-definition TV, a safe, Wi-Fi and USB charging ports. The pods can be rented for about $8 an hour (140 pesos) with a two-hour minimum. Guests can also rent the pod for a full night starting from about $30 per night (640 pesos.) Access to a private shower is available but costs an additional 130 pesos.
