The capsule hotel that began operation at the Boryspil international airport on July 1 plans to serve up to one thousand people per month.
The capsule hotel’s Development Director Oleksandr Chernyshenko announced this during its presentation on July 18, the CFTS correspondent reports.
According to Chernyshenko, the capsule hotel operated in a test mode until July 4, providing services free of charge. In total, more than 300 people have used the hotel’s services to date.
The hotel has 56 capsules, 16 of which offer double beds.
According to Chernyshenko, the most popular packages are currently for 3-6 hours. The main services provided to guests are shower, luggage storage, and charging of gadgets.
The hotel’s administration plans to provide hygiene kits and travel goods for an additional fee.
Asked why the hotel was not located in the restricted area of the airport (which would be convenient for transit passengers), Chernyshenko said that this was almost impossible for bureaucratic reasons: this requires permissions from the State Border Guard and the State Customs Service.
The Boryspil airport’s Commercial Director Heorhii Zubko wrote in a recent column for the CFTS portal that the hotel would be convenient for passengers whose flights are delayed or passengers arriving ahead of schedule from different parts of Ukraine.
