What is the Snooze Cube and what is it like to sleep in one? Smarter Travel has the answer. 

“They’re makeshift rooms that are larger than nap pods, but much smaller than a hotel room,” notes Shannon McMahon in a recent article that provides travelers with insight on what it’s like to sleep in a Snooze Cube. 

These tiny rooms include just the basics. 

“Just big enough to fit a twin bed and your carry-on luggage, a Snooze Cube is one in a row of about a dozen separated by thin, stopgap walls,” writes McMahon. 

“Wallpaper depicting clouds and waterfront views are pasted above and around the bed. The space includes a touch-screen computer for entertainment or accessing the internet, an outlet to charge electronics, plus a thermostat and lighting controls,” she says. 

They may be basic, but they are also cheap and allow jetlagged travelers to get some much needed shut eye. McMahon stayed in a Dubai Snooze Cube for about $20. However, it’s only worth booking one if you have enough time. 

“A minimum stay of two hours is required, and you’ll need enough time to find the storefront, plus plenty of cushion to get to your gate after you wake up,” says McMahon. 

With a long enough layover, though, this is a good option for travelers.

“Six hours was more than enough to nap without worrying about cutting it close to my flight,” she says.
