relax and be inspired


Particularly in Japan, capsule hotels are a very widespread category of hotels, born out of the need for an affordable accommodation in cities with little space. They offer a real alternative to the bunk beds with little privacy. Every single “capsule” can be closed, providing the guest with its own little room. The generously designed interior delivers high-speed internet, electricity, a safe, ventilation and other comforts.

staying in the coworking and innovations space

The check-in and check-out process is fully automated. Once you have paid for your reservation online, you will receive the access code and the allocated capsule number by email. Please note that there are no employees who can provide you with information on site.

On weekdays, the reception of the Innovations Space is always open until 17:00, and we, therefore, recommend our guests to check in between 15:00 and 17:00 on the day of arrival. In this way, we can answer any questions in person. You are, of course, free to check in later using the access code we have sent you.

Depending on the time of day, the integrated Coworking and Innovations Space is the meeting place for innovative entrepreneurs, digital nomads, local craftsmen and creatives from Lucerne. On the lower floor is the common living room, which is used as a space to exchange views and ideas. Consideration, sense of community and respect are important values, which we also expect from you as a visitor. Take advantage of this opportunity and join in conversations or cook something delicious together.

With a bit of luck you will be invited by a community member to the huge rooftop terrace overlooking the city.
