Traveling the world can be a tiring experience, that’s for certain. Which may be why one Spanish company recently launched a nap bar in Madrid’s Azca district, called Siesta & Go.
The center operates much like a hostel, offering visitors deals based on their privacy preferences and time constraints, among other variables. You can go all out and splurge on a private room for €14 (~$15) per hour or settle for the bar’s cheapest option, an €8 (~$9) top bunk in a shared room. The business also offers by-the-minute deals. That said, Siesta & Go isn’t for those looking for a long-term stay: It’s only open from 11:00am to 7:00pm.
Traveler’s Siesta & Go experience won’t stop at the mattress; Lonely Planet reports that the facility is perfect for chill-seekers and book-readers as well. There are armchairs and footrests for rent, as well as newspapers, coffee and courtesy Wi-Fi to keep tourists relaxed as they recharge. Even better, there’s no need to fret over cleanliness: Each napper gets his or her own single-use bedsheets and blanket and the facility is tidied up every day.
Rooms are decorated simply with all-black walls and wooden framed beds — all the better to help patrons catch some zzz’s in any one of its 19 available beds. It’s all part of Siesta & Go’s mission to use rest to help its patrons “maintain a healthy and natural beauty, which helps to reflect [on] luminosity and freshness,” according to the business’ website.
A napping station may be the perfect fit for the break-friendly Spaniards, who are already known for taking the midday siestas that give the establishment its name. Of course, the concept of a nap hotel is nothing new as airports around the world have been experimenting with napping areas for years now and various other cities, including Tokyo and London, offer similar concepts to this one in Madrid.
