(Text from: www.ajanaku.org) I love traveling! If it is for business or for pleasure, I just cant get enough! But what makes or breaks the trip is usually the hotel I am staying in. I have had the pleasure to stay in two great hotels these past few months, citizenM and The Leela. I think I have now found the next hotel on my list, 9 hours in Japan. 9 hours is a japanese capsule hotel with a difference. The latest Monocle report takes you on a tour trough the hotel and its great communication. It reminds me a lot of the concept behind citizenM, but with a twist. They expect you to stay just 9 hours in the hotel, 1 hour to shower, 7 hours to sleep, and 1 hour to rest. 1 hour shower! THANK YOU! For images go to www.ajanaku.nl
