Madrid’s All Day ‘Siesta Bar’ – Oh its True


Pay To SNOOZE??

Spain is a country that presented the world with The Siesta, but oh boy are they taking midday snoozing to a whole new level. Madrid now have the first official nap bar –  Siesta & Go is the place where people can book a space to take a snooze break before getting back to their daily lives. (no joke) I remember ages ago there was a concept called the “the nap station” in London – and nap cafes in Tokyo – I’ve yet to figure out how I have that knowledge!

Siesta & Go is Spain’s dedicated venue for slumber. Customers can book a space by the minute or by the hour, or just walk in and see if any of the 19 beds are vacant. I still don’t understand this concept at all, it just doesn’t make sense but I’m open to persuasion here folks!

The space offers many amenities to satisfy any guests needs and price range. Apart from offering both private and shared rooms, the bar provides cosy armchairs and workspaces if you work online. There are nightshirts, slippers, noise – cancelling headphones, newspapers, and even Wi-Fi. The funny thing is you can also have coffee (which cracks me up but maybe it’s to help you get back to work, who knows?.)

The cost of a private room will set you back around £11.50 per hour, and the cheapest option in a shared room is around £7. Even a daily professional cleaning service takes care of the blankets and bedsheets, so they pretty much have everything covered. No fear of sweaty bedsheets from previous guests.

According to Bloomberg the founder Maria Estrella Jorro De Inza said;

“It’s funny that we’re known for the siesta, but we haven’t been professional about it, “We get a lot of men in suits who just want to relax and women wanting to take their heels off. Lunch break is the busiest time.” 

Madrid isn’t the first city to experiment with the Napping venue concept. Other major cities such as Tokyo and London have tested similar ideas to Siesta & Go especially in Japan. It was the capsule hotels and Nap Cafés that were the initial inspiration behind bringing the concept to the city of Madrid. Even Airports around the world are increasingly providing dedicated napping areas to their offerings, such as First Class lounges.

When you find yourself sightseeing in Madrid eating tapas and your feet start to ache. Then why not head down to Siesta & Go and pop some slippers on and some headphones for a midday snooze.

    A nap bar? Wow! I should be flying to Madrid now. LOL! That’s a great place to relax and have a siesta. How I wish we have similar place like that here somewhere near my city.

    That is a funny concept to me. There are days that I wish I could take a nap at my desk, but this would be a nice alternative!

    Wow. Judging by your review, Siesta and Go must be a great stopover place when on a vacation to Madrid! Wonderful!

    This sounds like a wonderful idea and they should have these in London, especially at train stations and airports.

    I think this is quite a good idea, say you’ve got a tired parent who has an hour between finishing work and collecting the kids and they’re tired but no where near home, they can have a nap here x

    Wow! , what a novel idea. Of course it makes sense in countries like Spain who already have a long tradition associated with the siesta. I’m sure it will be super successful in countries that are used to siesta time. However , countries like the UK and Ireland it may be a little slower to catch on.

    This is a genius idea, especially for Spain. Seeing that it originated in the east and continues to push over into the western world…I wonder how long it will be before Siesta rooms come to the americas?

    This is such a brilliant idea! I would love to have a place to go and have a nap after lunch, every day, and then return to work. it is proven that having a nap boosts your productivity. This concept has to spread from Madrid to the entire world. 🙂

    I knew there were nap cafes in Tokyo but I had no idea that you could pay to snooze in Madrid. Not sure I would want to pay to sleep lol but I imagine it is quite popular there x

    I really think more places around the world need to embrace siestas! I may try making siesta time for my kids too.

    Who knew there was such a thing? It brings power napping to a whole new level. I’m not sure I could fall asleep in a room full of strangers .. but I definitely understand how a break in the middle of the day would be a welcome thing. For me, if I needed a few minutes alone, I’d be more inclined to find a coffee shop and aimlessly browse the web. x

    A nap bar is surely a place I’d love to go, especially during a busy day when I know a nap can actually help me in performing better. Will try to check this place out when I get to Madrid, soon hopefully. 😀
