Madrid’s Husa Paseo del Arte Hotel is now offering what they’re calling a ‘High Speed Pack’ which allows consumers to take advantage of the hotel’s facilities without having to spend a night in it. Guest can book in for a maximum of 5 hours for just 60€. Given that the hotel is located just 100 metres from from the Puerta de Atocha train station, this is especially useful for those just passing through.
Swedish clothing brand Elvine have launched ‘Creators Inn by Elvine’ – which offers free short-term accommodation for visiting ‘creators’ such as DJs, designers and artists. Any struggling artist can lodge for free in Gothernburg and Stockholm within these capsule hotels.
