A capsule hotel is a type of hotel with a large number of extremely small "rooms" (capsules) intended to provide cheap and basic overnight accommodation for guests not requiring the services offered by more conventional hotels. Primarily concentrated in Japan, at least one capsule hotel has opened in 2009 in Warsaw, Poland, and another one, as of January 2011, in Shanghai, China, though as of February 23, Shanghai authorities declared the hotel violated safety standards and could not be opened.
In October 2008, Sweden’s first floating hotel opened alongside the famous restaurant "Salt & Sill". The hotel is a meeting and conference venue with 46 beds, and is open all year round.
At the hotel, guests can work and socialise in an inspiring environment, enjoy good food and drink, and then fall asleep to the sound of lapping waves.
Despite the serene setting, there is plenty of opportunity for exciting and fun activities, with focus on the sea or food & drink.
The staff members are professional and service-minded and do their outmost to look after – not the customer – but the individual person.
Salt & Sill is a hotel and meeting place with a cosy, personal atmosphere, and a style characterised by modern Scandinavian simplicity.
