The capsule hotels similar to those that exist in Japan arrive in Spain. The city Bilbao will open in the coming weeks the first establishment of these characteristics, with independent living quarters, promoted by the Bilbao company Optimi Rooms.


What will be the first capsule hotel in Spain with Japanese style will open its doors in the coming weeks. It will open at number 58 on Doctor Areilza street in Bilbao, as reported by the daily Deia on Tuesday.


The hostel, has fifty capsules, in which in addition to viscoelastic mattress, guests will have extraordinary facilites. For instance, TV, USB connection, headphones, safe and maximum privacy, to incorporate a sliding door to isolate from other users.

Seems like of the 50 capsules, 36 are individual cabins at a price of 24.95 euros a night and 14 doubles at 34.95 euros.

The promoters explain that “instead of betting on a bunk like any hostel does, we wanted a Premium hostel”. As a result, they bet on the futuristic line capsules that characterize the establishment.

The cabin, despite its size, is not claustrophobic. “It is not an anguishing or oppressive space at all,” says one promoter. The capsules are 120 centimetres, in contrast, in Japan are 90 centimetres. This fact makes the Bilbao capsules wider than others.

The accommodation consists of an area at the entrance where check-in is done, a common room with vending machines for food and microwave, another area where there are bathrooms and showers, a lockers area where you can store your luggage and finally you will find the area where the capsules are.

Finally, he Hostel Box also has establishments in Spain with bunk beds in the form of capsules, but they do not have the Japanese style of isolated compartments like the one that Optimi Rooms has promoted.

The surprising growth of Bilbao

Bilbao has not stopped growing in recent years. Since it became the best European city in 2018, companies have not stopped betting on this city. In the first place, and this being the most recent news, Air France is betting on Bilbao and increasing its offer for the summer by 30%.

But this is not the only positive news for the city, Leonardo Hotels has opened in Bilbao his eighth establishment in Spain. This is not the only hotel that has joined the city, Sercotel has inaugurated its fourth hotel in Bilbao recently and Vincci has just added a new 4 star hotel in Bilbao.

It seems that a promising future awaits for Bilbao.
