National News // By Tay Kinnear // Nov. 13, 2018

A novel capsule hotel in Lucerne has closed only after a week. 

Capsulehotel.ch Lucerne capsule hotel closes after first week

Despite press reports that suggest bookings were strong, the hotel is not taking any bookings for the moment.

The capsule idea is an import from Japan – and costs are low. Between CHF 35-60 a night. It’s the only hotel of its type in the country.

While there is no official reason for the closure, it’s thought it’s because not all capsules have a window – which they are supposed to have.

There’s no news on when it may reopen.
