I understand: this website is an informational only portal, so we don’t need to be mad at the website. I agree that it is a rip off. However, Dubai airport is even more expensive and the capsules are on the ways so that people are running and yelling outside all the time.
Hi! Do you know if they’re accessible from arrivals?
Hello, are these pods first come first serve or we can pre book it? If yes how?
Can these be accessible From the duty free?
You got to be kidding me € 9 am hr ???? Is it a place on wheels ?? Even a five start cost around €80 for 24 hrs !!! Good Luck with your rip off
Hi Alex, thank you but this is a travel blog and we are not giving this service. You should yell out your complaint to the guys on location, or find a 5 star hotel inside the airport, or whatever. Best!
what the hell, 9 euros per hour that’s way too expensive for cabin pods
