Recognizing the realities of our citizens: overworked, sleep-deprived and lacking in space, we aspire to provide a space for recharge, whenever one needs it.
Building upon the architectural concept originated from Japan in the 1970s, we are infusing it with new purpose, designs and technologies. Our hourly and overnight plans provide flexible options to our guests; our online check-in and keyless entry simplifies the user experience; Our circadian lighting based on scientific principles is designed to induce quality sleep.
Centrally located in Sheung Wan, minutes of walking from Central, our pilot project is situated right between Queen's Road Central and Gough Street, in the middle of a staircase.
SLEEEP is also recipient of the Design for Asia Awards 2017 (Silver).

Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS A CAPSULE HOTEL?
A capsule hotel is a genre of hotel originated from Japan in the 1960s. It features self-contained beds with high-degree of privacy. In Japan it primarily serves a different purpose, but we have appropriated this spatial concept to a new context, for a new purpose.
DO YOU CALL YOUR BEDS CAPSULES THEN?
At SLEEEP, we call our uniquely designed, patent-pending beds SLPers
(pronounced as sleepers.)
WHAT WILL I BE SHARING?
You will be sharing two toilets and two shower rooms with a maximum of 7 other guests. The shower rooms have a dry area for your clothes and a bench for you to sit down and change.
HOW IS MY QUALITY SLEEP ENSURED?
We recognize that every individual have different preferences, that's why we encourage our users to personalize their beds after the booking is made. We have active fresh air supply into each capsule, and a magnetic felt curtain to ensure your privacy and absolute darkness if so desired. The real-wood lining and circadian lighting inside your SLPer will help tune down your body and mind. While we cannot guarantee quality sleep, we have users who have expressed that they sleep better in our SLPers than at their home; others who have gotten their rare deep sleep at SLEEEP, despite their insomnia.
HOW MANY PEOPLE WILL A SLPER FIT?
ARE MY SHEETS CLEAN?
Yes, your bed is always made to your personal preference with fresh and clean bedding as you arrive. For multi-day guests, as a respect for your privacy as well as the environment, we will only change your beddings (free of charge) if you make a request.
WHY SLEEEP WITH 3 E(S)?
As a business we are literally stressing the importance of sleep: a universal experience that is practiced by Everyone, Everyday, Everywhere.

90cm height x 30cm depth x 48cm width
WHAT TOILETRIES DO YOU SUPPLY?
We provide natural hand soap, shampoo and conditioner along with hand and face towels for free. However, we do not provide toothbrushes and toothpaste for free like other capsule hotels in Asia. However, we do have a reusable toothbrush set for sale for our guests. We believe that reusable quality goods is the most effective way to reduce waste and to make the world more sustainable.
WHAT'S SPECIAL ABOUT SLEEEP COMPARED TO OTHER ECO HOTELS?
Well, we are glad you asked! Here at Sleeep through the end-to-end design we have considered everything: starting with a reinforced concrete door to soundproof the premises from the outside, the soothing music and essential oils used to help create an atmosphere paradoxical to the hustle and bustle of the surroundings, to the customisation of the beds to each guests preferences and the responsive lighting, the sheer attention to detail is, we have been told, impeccable. This is reinforced by Sleeep’s multiple awards for eco consciousness, unique design and forward thinking, including being the world’s first in LEEDv4 (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) in the ID+C Hospitality category.
Ever wondered what the perfect night's sleep is like? Our endeavour to create the perfect sleeping experience is what drives us and we feel we are getting pretty close.
HOW ABOUT COMMUNAL AREAS...
Sleeep has been designed specifically as a place for peaceful slumber and recharge. We also encourage near silence around the property and hushed tones to ensure the quality of sleep for other guests. While we do not have a communal area on site, SLEEEP is centrally located around scores of bars and restaurants. We encourage our guests to become friends and explore the city together.
Who do I contact with press/media enquiries?
We have a page dedicated to all our press/media stuff, hopefully this should cover the basics but if you have further questions or want to organise a chat/interview then shoot us a message at [email protected].
IS THERE ANYWHERE TO KEEP MY LUGGAGE PRE/POST STAY UNTIL I CATCH MY FLIGHT?
Most certainly, while one of our XOs would be more than happy to look after your luggage for you for a few hours. While we do our best to look after the luggage, we do not assume responsibility for any loss or damage.
LEEDv4 (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design)
ID+C Hospitality Certification
From our paperless operations to the heat recovery system for the hot showers, we deeply care about energy and resource savings - thus our insistence and investments in becoming LEED certified. But there is much more to sustainability than physical attributes. It is an attitude, a value, a habit, a culture. Sustainability requires a unified purpose in both hardware and software - material and culture.
A simple look at the ecosystem, we will find that there is no sustainability without recharge. That applies to nearly every living being on our planet. It applies to every one of us. A well rested self is the first step of positive change forward.
Sleeep takes us further.
