The property is located at 242 Queens Road Central in Sheung Wan, halfway along a staircase between Queen's Road Central and Gough Street.

"Sleep is an essential activity that is practiced by everyone, everyday, everywhere. Yet, in a stressful and overworked environment such as Hong Kong, that foundation is sacrificed in the name of improving living standards. We thought that contradictory and unsustainable," said Jun Rivers, one of the two founders of Sleeep. "With our new hospitality concept we hope to offer a sanctuary for people to relax and recharge. It's a breathing space within a suffocating environment. We truly believe that high quality, sufficient sleep can take us further in both professional and personal lives by revitalising our bodies, sharpening our minds, enhancing our creativity and strengthening our resilience."

The Sleeep experience is centered on the patent-pending capsule - named SLPer®. Each SLPer provides "an intimate space to deliver exceptional quality sleep". Featuring a metal skin, wood lining, rounded corners and indirect lighting, "every detail of the SLPer is designed for quality sleep".

Once inside, is enclosed by a magnetic curtain that is quiet to operate and effective for privacy. Sleeep says: "The circadian lighting, active air supply and climate control are utilised based on scientific findings to give occupants the highest quality sleep possible. The thoughtful comforts, minimalist aesthetics and subtle yet meaningful use of technology come together to deliver an affecting, efficient recharge, whenever one needs it."

Upon booking online for either an hourly or overnight stay, guests can choose their preferred mattress firmness, pillow type and blanket thickness. 

Sleep is aiming to be the first capsule hotel in the world to be LEED v4 certified (ID+C: Hospitality). Environmental features include paperless operations, LED lighting, a heat recovery system for the hot showers, organic cotton towels and locally sourced amenity options.
