    A smart capsule hotel operated by a WeChat account recently opened at Cybernaut Makerspace in Chongqing's Liangjiang New Area.

    The hotel has four rooms shaped like a white space capsule and each room can accommodate one person.

    The guests can register on the hotel's WeChat account and can make reservations, check in and check out by themselves using their mobile phones. So there's no hotel staff.

    The hotel aims to provide a place for workers to rest, especially during the lunch break. It charges 5 yuan ($75 cents) per 30 minutes and 6 yuan during the lunch break.

    The owner of the hotel plans to install about 200 rooms by the end of the year in Liangjiang New Area Internet Industry Park.

    A capsule hotel, also known as a pod hotel, is a type of property first developed in Japan that features a large number of small "rooms" (capsules). The first capsule hotel in the world was the Capsule Inn Osaka in 1979.

    In 2012, China opened its first capsule hotel in Xi'an, Shaanxi province.

    无人值守的智能胶囊酒店在重庆投用  

    最近,一种通过微信账户经营的智能胶囊酒店在重庆两江新区赛伯乐众创空间投入使用。

    该酒店包含四个房间,形状类似白色的太空舱,每个房间可容纳一人。

    客人可通过该酒店的微信账号注册并进行预约。酒店办理入住手续和退房手续都将通过房客自己的手机,因此该酒店没有工作人员。

    酒店旨在为工人提供休息的场所,特别是在午休期间。使用该酒店,每30分钟收取5元(75美分),午休时间则为6元。

    酒店老板计划年底前,将在在两江新区互联网产业园投入200间这样的胶囊房间。

    胶囊酒店,也被称之为荚酒店,指拥有大量小型“房间”(即胶囊)的一种酒店形式,最早产生于日本。世界上第一家胶囊酒店是1979年建成的大阪胶囊酒店。

    2012年,中国第一家胶囊酒店在陕西省西安市落成。
