From our point of view Monotel hotels has more concept of a hostel than a classic hotel. It is someting in between with more separated space from other roommates and in summer it is a good privilege to have own capsule with air-conditioning.
Starting from 1979 capsule hotels has great success in Japan because of the limited space to build the real classic hotel and the good price for overnight stay – 18-36 USD. It will be hard for Monotel hotels to compete with Kyiv hostels that provide double beds for price of 13-15 USD per night. Also 36 USD per night is the price of regular 3-stars hotel in Kyiv so there is competition with classic hotels too. Looks like prices of Monotel hotels a bit too high and the range of 20-30 USD will be the niche of success.
