Hotel Capsule arrived in Argentina
Within the boutique hotel Las Bayas, in Esquel, are the glittering eight accommodation units that share the same mixed atmosphere that make up My Pod, the first capsulehotel that opens in our country. Each of these single capsules , designed in wood, has individually all the necessary amenities for a good stay. My Pod is a hotel aimed at people for whom service, quality and hospitality are basic. An excellent shower, comfortable bed, pleasant common spaces are part of the experience.
The new concept of accommodation is based on optimized spaces, excellent location, with focus on service and high quality inputs. The idea is an attractive space in which to interact with others and, in this way, enrich the experience and the welfare.
These capsule hotels, originated in countries of the East and today are trend around the world. Passengers have a schedule of weekly activities , among which you can enjoy bicycles, wine tasting, cooking classes, yoga, among others that adapt to the different seasons of the area.
In addition to having access to all common areas, such as the wine bar and restaurant, passengers have women’s and men’s bathrooms and showers and can opt for additional bathrobes and bamboo toothbrushes. My Pod also offers daily maid service, full continental breakfast, 24-hour concierge, laundry and sum service. It differs from being accessible, which does not mean at all low quality or bad service.
With a sustainable soul
Awareness for caring for the environment is essential in this project. Recall that Esquel is the only Green municipality in Argentina. Therefore, it is a condition that every hotel establishment has separation of waste and the recycling of polluting elements and products. With My Pod it goes a little further, as inputs produced from recycled containers suitable to be refilled, minimizing the use of plastic, biodegradable, without parabens or silicones or added salt. Fully “compostable” laundry bags are used, natural fiber fabrics such as biodynamic cotton, and low fiber environmental impact, among others.
The first capsule hotel My Pod is located in Esquel, a city that has varied proposals throughout the year: winter skiing in La Hoya, fly fishing in the different lakes of the park, tour in the old Patagonian Express La Trochita, declared as a national historical monument,
