On Saturday, February 12, 2022, the time had come: Europe's largest CapsuleTM Hotel opened at Zurich Airport. With around 1100m2 and 144 beds, it makes its guests dream with a unique design concept. For the first time, a Swiss hotel was developed from scratch with a successful influencer. The Swiss nature photographer Fabio Zingg designed the interior of the hotel with his pictures from the Alps. This creates a unique experience space where travelers from all over the world meet.
Located directly opposite Check-in 1, it is in a prime location. Anyone who flies out early in the morning can now arrive comfortably the evening before and the next morning, with a creamy espresso and a fine croissant in their stomach, they can relax across the street to check-in. Because of low prices and a cozy atmosphere with a bar, breakfast offer and the only airport jacuzzi, it turns a stressful journey into a harmonious start to the holiday. But that's not all: The CapsuleTM Hotel reduces overnight stays to what is really necessary for a good night's sleep: to a clean, comfortable and quiet place to sleep. Incidentally, the ecological footprint of an overnight stay in the CapsuleTM Hotel is 80% lower than in a conventional hotel room.
In total, the CapsuleTM Hotel at Zurich Airport has 144 sleeping capsules on around 1100m2. This includes six barrier-free and one wheelchair-accessible sleeping capsule. The guests stay in swiss capsulesTM, which meet the highest standards. The sleeping capsules are designed and produced in Switzerland, are lockable and soundproofed so that guests can enjoy the greatest possible privacy in the smallest of spaces. Air hygiene is also taken care of. The individual fresh air conditioning «swiss capsuleTM» prevents the air from mixing. The hotel also has cozy meeting zones, a small wellness area, co-working opportunities and a bar with breakfast options, where guests can help themselves to drinks and snacks around the clock. The capsules can also be booked during the day.
