Need A Transit Hotel Option At Dubai DXB Airport? – SnoozeCube Available At Terminal 1&3

1 Comment

In our series of showcasing innovative Airport Hotel concepts, today LoyaltyLobby will introduce the SnoozeCube at Dubai International Airport Terminal 1 & 3.

snoozecubeTransit Hotels are useful because you don’t have to leave the airport and they are often available in blocks of a few hours to to a full overnight just steps away from your next departure gate.

In airports that are notorious for long layovers, or in case you encounter a missed connection, it helps to have an option to just rest for a few hours, especially if you don’t have lounge access. You can access the website for SnoozeCube Dubai here.

The website describes the product as follows:

Passengers facing flight delays, cancellations or long transits at Dubai International Airport (the 4th largest in the world) now have the option to rent out a micro-hotel room right inside the terminal.

Our SnoozeCubes provide the perfect space for passengers looking for extra privacy, a step up in comfort from terminal seating and somewhere to lay their head.

We currently have 10 sound-proofed units installed adjacent to C 22 at Dubai International’s Terminal 1 and they are already proving to be a major service provider.

We take a minimalist approach to design with an emphasis on function. There is enough room to for a bed, touchscreen TV offering music and movies and room to hang your coat and store your carry-on luggage.

The images in the gallery (see here) show the individual units that are designed in a very colorful way and appear larger due to the use of mirrors and nature/landscape images.

All Cubes are actually manufactured overseas and installed locally:

Built in Hamilton, the ‘Snooze Cube’ was invented 5 years ago by New Zealander, Larry Swann ,who is the director, working on the idea ever since.

Designed and built in New Zealand, the launch of the SnoozeCube is a further endorsement of the country’s reputation for creating high quality, innovative products, according to Dubai-based Steve Jones, New Zealand Trade Commissioner for Middle East, Africa and Pakistan.

The prices are pretty steep though, and I almost choked when I looked at the list.

snoozecube-pricingThis is pretty insane. 21$ per hour with a 2 hour minimum. So 42$US for a 2 hour nap? Back in March I paid 36$ for 6 hours at the Aerotel Singapore Changi.


I would need to be pretty exhausted or sick to pay that money for a brief stay in one of these cubes or any other airport hotel that has a comparable price to what we see here.

It’s a great concept though, and considering the small amount of space (10 units), I doubt they will have much difficulty selling out quickly on a daily basis at a huge airport like DXB.
