I am surprised we don't have more sleeping pod setups here in nz, I am not talking about the ones in the news today that were shoved into a room but a proper setup.

 

I used these when I was over in Japan and I really loved them, a communal area for cooking and separate shower facility.

 

Just surprised there are not more full setups like this around.

I could never get in and if I did get in I doubt that I would get out. That would be messy.

Well there's 4.4 million other Kiwis that it could appeal to..

 

Jucy has a pod hotel in Christchurch, I looked into it last week, seems reasonable at $35/night in a room of 8?

I am thin but getting from my chair into one of those would be a mission. I can see my myself launching head first to get out, missing the chair..... splat.

They are the only ones that I know of in nz that is why I am surprised there are not more.

So if we already have them what's the big stink about these ones - is it that they're not intended to be adhoc/holiday, and that they cost $200 a week?

Presumably you would be careful not to eat pies and beans before checking into one of these.
