Tubo Hotel

I always liked the Tubo Hotel, but I never realized it was based on a real thing. Then I opened up the bing homepage this morning and bam! There it is. I have those models, but I never knew what they were supposed to be for.  Here's a link to the archive in case you missed it http://www.istartedsomething.com/bingimages/?m=1&y=2018#20180103-us.

    Oh, I always asumed they were based on the "capsules" hotels from Japan (I've seen them once in the airport):

    Didn't know about the sauna thing.

    That’s very cool. I really like the turbo hotel too.

    That's what I originally thought they were. It seems like they'd need a ton of insulation to sit out in the snow like that. And a pretty good heat source. Another Daz product i found in real life is High Street Kitchen, but I don't have a link to it right now.

    Edit: Here it is High Street Project

    Actually, Tubo Hotel is in Tepoztlan, Mexico, and Resort Lagoon is a room at Manta Resort on Pemba Island, off the coast of Tanzania, that costs $1,500 a night. Grand Staircase, First Class Stateroom, Veranda Cafe, Smoking Room, Reading and Writing Room and Promenade Deck are based on, but not exact copies of, RMS Titanic. Any others?

    Oh, cool! I didn't know the turbo hotel actually existed! Kind of want to visit it now!

    Yep, that's definitely the interior of the Tubo Hotel. It kind of looks like they took elements of both for the doors. Still cool, no matter what.

    Those are the only store items I've identified.

    ...in one of the RPGs I'm involved with these are colloquially referred to as "coffin motels".
