Nicosia Accommodation and Business Travellers in the Age of Lifestyle Experience!

The needs of today’s business traveller have dramatically transformed in recent years. No less for those seeking Nicosia accommodation in the business capital of Cyprus or at other hotels around the world. In one recent business survey, more than half (58 per cent) of respondents said they actively search for boutique hotels.

We live in an age of the “lifestyle experience”. Beyond home, food, clothes, sport, design, culture and leisure, for example, it particularly extends to the annual vacation, a mini holiday or even just a weekend break. Businessmen and women, too, increasingly opt for preferences that tick all the modern lifestyle experience boxes when choosing a hotel.

Nicosia accommodation: staying at “lifestyle” hotels also continued to grow

While Nicosia and Larnaca saw the number of 1-Star and 2-Star hotels increase by almost 90 per cent over the last decade (Cyprus Hospitality Report, 2019), the interest in staying at “lifestyle” hotels also continued to grow and spread. In new research by Global Business Travel Association (GBTA), nearly two thirds (65 per cent) of business travellers sought out “lifestyle” hotels, and 50 per cent first checked consumer review websites and other sources for previous guests’ experiences.

The survey also reveals key items which addresses business traveller preferences, such as a hotel’s proximity, personalised experience, free and fast Wi-Fi, healthy-eating options, and a setting that both helps to boost productivity as well as to relax and unwind.

Select number of Nicosia hotels ideal for reduced travel time

It’s no surprise that convenience provided by a hotel’s location and proximity is always a high priority. A select number of Nicosia hotels, for example, are found nearby to key business, government, academic and cultural institutions at the centre of the capital. Ideal for reduced travel time and increased productivity.

One important aspect of a business person’s personalised experience, absolutely now expected, is a hotel’s technology that will streamline from start to finish. Not only at the booking stage! Most business travellers also choose a hotel where they can use an app to check in and check out, offers free and fast Wi-Fi and a room with multiple power sockets for all their devices – and the iron!

Many business travellers want to start their working day with a healthy breakfast

Healthy eating options must definitely be on a hotel’s menu. To keep going through a busy diary of meetings and appointments means many business travellers want to start their working day with a healthy breakfast, at least. Increasingly, the demand is for a variety of vegetarian and vegan options too. Healthy-eating often goes hand in hand with keeping fighting fit.

Committed, exercise-conscious business people seek out a fitness centre, which is easy to find, no waiting to use a particular machine, and exercise stations that are all maintained and working properly.

No.1 desire to have the ultimate “great night’s sleep”

Literally, at the end of the day – a business person’s working day –  their No.1 desire can be simply to relax and unwind in peace and quiet. Most of all, to have the ultimate “great night’s sleep” on a quality king size bed and bedding.

Boutique Nicosia Accommodation Definitely Attractive To Aspiring Entrepreneurs

Attending Startup Europe Week, Nicosia 2020? If you’re  heading to the “The Global Entrepreneurial Ecosystem” event on Thursday 19th March, you may think you’re spoilt for choice in Nicosia accommodation. But is this true? A quick look at the figures…

There are more than 42 thousand bedrooms and similar accommodation in Cyprus, according to a 2018 Statista survey. Popular online price comparison site, Expedia lists nearly 900 luxury hotels in Nicosia alone, followed by Trivago, which lists almost 700 for Nicosia accommodation.

Lifestyle Nicosia accommodation close to most major institutions

Clearly, not all of the 170,000 people who arrived in Cyprus in March 2019 (CYSTAT) sought a luxury 5 star hotel. At the same time, the number of independent boutique hotels offering a lifestyle experience – definitely attractive to aspiring entrepreneurs and business professionals – is relatively small. Especially one that is close to most of the major academic, cultural, financial, as well as government institutions in the Cyprus capital.

It’s therefore good news for busy business people that boutique independent, Hypnos by bed N’mix, is located 2.4 kms – or just 6 minutes away from the European University Cyprus, hosts of the 5th annual Startup Europe Week. Entrepreneurs brimming with energy appreciate a good night’s sleep amongst inspired designer decor as much anyone else.

Guest speakers will discuss “opportunities and challenges” in Cyprus

Startup Europe Week is a unique, world-wide initiative which develops and supports startups at the regional level. Between March 16-20, 2020, over 50 countries will host more than 100 events, and providing a platform to open up and promote local opportunities for entrepreneurs, or anyone who wants to start a business in their city, as well as connecting their regions at the international level.

In a full agenda, international guest speakers will be discussing the “opportunities and challenges” in Cyprus as part of The Global Entrepreneurial Ecosystem. One seminar will focus on, for example, “How to negotiate effectively in business”. While another will examine “Business approaches for different markets: One size fits all?”

Representatives look forward to staying at world class Nicosia accommodation

Cyprus is recognised as one of the faster growing economies in Europe with an annual 3.9 per cent increase in GDP. The island is also an upcoming innovation and entrepreneurial hub, with an increasing number of start-up accelerators and incubators. In addition, Cyprus research institutions collaborate with world-class local and international organisations to carry out large-scale innovative projects.

Undoubtedly, representatives from world class institutions and research groups might also look forward to staying at world class accommodation in Nicosia. An entrepreneurial spirit may be on the move but is always “home from home” with boutique convenience, relaxation and modern connectivity wrapped in a contemporary design aesthetic.

Lifestyle Nicosia Accommodation for Plain Sailing to Cyprus Yachting Conference

It’s only 15 minutes (6 kms) from lifestyle Nicosia accommodation, Hypnos by bed N’ mix, to Filoxenia Conference Centre where the Cyprus Yachting Conference is to be held on Thursday, 19 March 2020. Definitely ‘plain sailing’ for delegates planning to attend, with all the lifestyle facilities they need for a relaxed stay, Mediterranean-style.

Along with finance and real estate, Cyprus tourism is estimated to bring in more than three quarters (80 per cent) of the island’s income and employment. However, Cyprus is increasingly recognised as more than simply as a ‘sun sea and sand’ attraction despite record-breaking visitor figures of 3.97 million in 2019. As a result of significant investment over the last four decades, the ‘jewel of the Mediterranean’ is fast becoming a select yachting destination enjoyed by blue-chip owners of sleek sailing craft and superyacht.

Lifestyle of boutique Nicosia accommodation or onboard a superyacht

Boat and yacht ownership has soared in recent years. Recreational boat demand continues to be fuelled by new yacht technology, bigger vessel size, increase in high net worth buyers, and growing tourism. Around 830 superyachts measuring 24m or more were under construction or on order at shipyards around the world, according to Boat International, 2019.

As more men and women seek out the authentic experiences and lifestyle of exclusive boutique Nicosia accommodation in Cyprus on-land, so too, onboard  a superyacht yacht moored in the surrounding Mediterranean waters.

Insight into every aspect of the yacht owning experience

The Cyprus Yachting Conference, which is to be held in English, offers insight into every aspect of the yacht owning experience for all types of potential investors, from real estate professionals and government services to CEOs, C-suite executives and managing directors.

Amongst a full day of presentations will be analysis of the Cypriot yacht market and exploring future opportunities. Another seminar takes a close look at internal yacht design and construction, while another examines basic engine maintenance, dry docking, on-board trouble-shooting and yacht security systems.

Other practical issues discussed include all aspects of yacht insurance (including, damage to the property of others), the process of registering and licensing a yacht, maritime law, tax liabilities, hiring a yacht captain – and the benefits of professional catering!

Six impressive yachting marinas around Cyprus

There are now six impressive yachting marinas around Cyprus, including the magnificent 650-berth Limassol Marina, a 17 million euro transformation of the Old Port, which was unveiled in 2014. The Ayia Napa Marina is the latest state-of the art yachting destination while boat owners may also wish to drop anchor at the 450 berth Larnaca Marina, the time-honoured 250-berth St Raphael Marina.

Another traditional port of call to explore is the picturesque Zygi Marina between Larnaca and Limassol, and – currently still under construction – Crystal Marina, Latsi, on the Akamas peninsula, between Polis and Aphrodite Baths, where moorage is right alongside a number of restaurants and bars.

Nicosia Accommodation Nearby Gas Forum and Conference

Two annual energy conferences, which bring together delegates from governments, oil and gas suppliers and operators worldwide, are to be held in the capital in early March. Among attendees staying at Nicosia centre hotels, a number will choose to stay at boutique Nicosia accommodation just a short distance from the Hilton and Landmark hotels, the venues for both conferences.

A personalised, lifestyle experience is offered at the best hotels in Nicosia where relaxed, cultural traditions come with a contemporary design and modern technology twist. A boutique hotel would definitely be viewed as appropriate for executive guests, keen to both save and restore their own valuable energy with a “good night’s sleep”.  READ MORE about Hypnos Coco Mat Sleep Systems

Energy Leaders and Investors stay at best hotels in Nicosia

Cyprus continues to play an important role as a major energy player in the Mediterranean and surrounding regions. The breakthrough came in 2007, when the government introduced offshore licensing inside its Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), permitting companies to look for gas in Cypriot controlled waters of the Mediterranean Sea.

Then in 2011, gas fields were discovered in the southern Cyprus EEZ promising to diversify EU gas supplies, help reduce the island’s carbon emissions, and boost the Cyprus economy. One field was estimated to contain between 4.5 – 8 trillion cubic feet of gas. At the time, a US geological survey indicated that an expansive area of the  Mediterranean – from Cyprus to Lebanon, Israel, and Egypt – could contain more than 340 trillion cubic feet of gas – higher than US reserves, the fourth largest in the world after Russia, Iran, and Qatar.

The first of the two conferences, The Mediterranean Oil & Gas Forum (Hilton Hotel, 6th | 7th March) brings together government and energy leaders to promote American and European energy investments in Cyprus and the Eastern Mediterranean. Four days later, the Eastern Mediterranean Gas Conference (EMGC) – at The Landmark, 11th | 12th March – offers latest information on the region’s growing natural gas industry with exclusive representation from key ministerial offices within the region.

Nicosia accommodation for attendees from 20 countries

Since 2013, the EMGC continues to be an invaluable networking and information-sharing platform for gas operators, technology firms, suppliers, regional governments and expert analysts. All-important issues surrounding natural gas developments in the Eastern Mediterranean are analysed and discussed. Delegates have a unique opportunity to explore access to regional markets and seek potential new business partners. In 2019, the conference brought together attendees from 20 countries, including the US, Egypt, Israel, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Europe and China. Of the 187 delegates who attended, nearly a third were service suppliers (29 per cent), over a quarter were operating companies (26 per cent) and around one in six were key government officials (15 per cent).

Future energy potential looks extremely positive as Cyprus continues to uncover more gas sources further afield. In 2017, two of Europe’s biggest oil and gas producers from France and Italy found small volumes of gas in a second Cyprus field, and recently announced a further discovery reportedly similar in size to one enormous field off Egypt.

Both conferences highlight the discovery and development of gas around the Mediterranean, which will help Cyprus transition from an oil to modern gas power economy.

Best Nicosia City Centre Hotels: ‘Home From Home’ Experience Fuses Culture With Modern Amenity

The rise of the “home from home” experience, particularly among Nicosia city centre hotels is no accident. Traveller expectations have helped to redefine the meaning of a ‘luxury’ stay. It was not only holidaymaker and tourist who grew weary of ‘standard’ rooms and dull décor offered by the chain brands. Frequent or regular business travellers, too, expected a more ‘personalised’ approach from their hotel.

The demand and growth of ‘lifestyle’ hotels have continued to drive the boutique concept of hotel accommodation by 7-8 per cent for almost a decade (STR Report, 2018). In Cyprus, one in eight (12 per cent) of building permits issued in 2018 were for the building of hotels, according to the Cyprus Hospitality Report, KPMG, 2019. The demand for a boutique hotel experience, however, grows alongside an overall explosion in visitor accommodation.

Best Nicosia accommodation really strives to be different from their competitors

The Report also found that of the 791 hotels currently operating across the island, 51 were ‘chain’ hotels, 58 were 4-star rated hotels and 26 were 5-star hotels. While the number of star hotels has slightly increased by 7 per cent over the last decade, the number of budget 1-star and 2-star hotels in Nicosia (and Larnaca) rose by nearly 90 per cent. Nevertheless, Cyprus visitors increasingly seek out the small, independent hotel in the search for a ‘meaningful’ lifestyle experience. Clearly, the best Nicosia accommodation really strives to be different from their competitors.

But what are the reliable indicators to look for? Most studies hold the defining characteristics to be a 3-5 star rated, non-chain hotel with fewer than 100 rooms usually located in an urban or city centre. Its key attributes should naturally offer a personalised “home from home” experience fusing historic and cultural identity with unique contemporary themed design and styling, and modern amenities.

Soul of a hotel harmoniously blended attracts today’s discerning guest

The frequent business traveller in need of a refreshing night’s sleep in relaxed, comfortable environment also seeks   more insightful surroundings to satisfy a different sense of luxury beyond traditional, perhaps outdated ideas of extravagant opulence. To stay at a newly defined luxury hotel is more aligned with purposeful interaction and a meaningful connection to their understanding of location and environment.

Today’s transformed sense of luxury is an appeal to a sense of the authentic, which is neither simulated nor contrived. It is the ‘soul’ of a hotel, baked-in with novel architecture, interiors and furnishing, which is harmoniously blended with service provision and amenity that beguiles and attracts today’s discerning guest. The ‘hotel concept’  pieces together the gathered elements to create the all-important authentic, memorable guest experience.

Nicosia Accommodation – Five Minutes From The Gold Collection!

Only a 5-6 minute walk from convenient city centre Nicosia accommodation, Hypnos by bed N’ Mix, the history and iconography of a new permanent exhibition of coins provide a fascinating insight into “international trade, power and reputation” of empires, past and present. It’s time “well spent” as trade, commerce and currency never stand still…

Nicosia is the financial, as well as government and cultural capital of Cyprus. So it’s no surprise that ‘The Gold Collection” is now permanently installed at the city’s A. G. Leventis Gallery on Leonidou Street. On display are more than 600 gold coins and commemorative gold medals dating from 362 BC to the mid-20th century, which were collected during the 1960s and 70s by the gallery founder, Anastasios G. Leventis.

History of Cyprus currency – insight for Nicosia Accommodation business visitors 

The history of the islands’ currency can be traced back more than 2,500 years. The first coins in Cyprus – minted in silver – occurred during the period of the “city kingdoms” in 6th century BC. Throughout its history of foreign rulerships, Cyprus has traded with many monetary units including, Roman and Byzantine coins, the dinar – the main coin of the medieval Islamic empires – and the piastre of the Ottoman Empire.

When Cyprus came under the dominion of the British Empire as a British protectorate in 1879, the Cypriot pound (also known as the Cypriot lira) was introduced, which was equal in value to the pound sterling. During the period when Cyprus became a Crown colony of Great Britain (1922 – 1960) the currency value remained unchanged until 1972, more than a decade after achieving independence.

Blockchain to change trading in Cyprus

Cyprus joined the European Union in May 2004 and nearly four years later, the Cypriot pound was finally replaced by the Euro as the official currency on 1 January 2008. By 2016, Cyprus was listed as one of the 31 advanced global economies by the International Monetary Fund who were confident in their forecast for Cyprus growth rates to exceed 3 per cent by 2020. The island’s GDP actually saw a 3.1 per cent growth in 2019.

Today, the world of currency for most international business dealers is a long way removed from real gold coins and notes. The advent of blockchain technology looks set to again change the island’s trading landscape. Late in 2018, Cyprus joined with seven other EU states in signing a declaration aimed at collaborating in the promotion of blockchain application and distributed ledger technologies.

Good Night’s Sleep at Nicosia Accommodation for Same Day Blockchain and Digital Taxation Events

Bitcoin and digital taxation – are important developments in how money transactions and revenue collection may evolve in Cyprus over the next decade. Each theme will be separately discussed at two conferences taking place in the capital during February. There’s no doubt that attendees from across the professional finance sector – with their well-known eye for detail – will choose Nicosia accommodation to meet their exact hotel requirements.

Foremost will be quality and value of room, and service standards. Today, business people are more likely to seek a more personalised, lifestyle experience rather than simply opt for a basic room offered by a global chain. Even the taxation professional can understand why going ‘boutique’ may provide a superior, good night’s sleep. So, time to put away the calculator – there’s definitely no need to count sheep!

A good night’s sleep is exactly what may be needed if attending the two conferences – as they both occur on the same day – Wednesday 19th February.

Nicosia accommodation near to Seminar and Conference

The Cyprus International Tax & Professional Services Conference takes place at the Hilton Nicosia in the first half of the day (8:30am – 2:30pm) while the second, entitled, “Introduction to Decentralized Finance, DAOs and Tokenization of Assets” is being held in the evening at the University of Nicosia (7:00pm – 9:00pm). The Hilton and the University are only 1.6kms (0.9 ml) and 2.2 kms (1.4 ml), respectively, from Hypnos by bed N’mix.

Now in it’s 3rd year, The Cyprus International Tax Conference will be addressing the most recent trends and developments in taxation across Europe and worldwide, including, “digital taxation and its implications for the EU and Cyprus, in particular” and the “mandatory disclosure of cross border tax arrangements, known as DAC6” (the implementation of any reportable cross-border agreements).

A distinguished line up of speakers are from key institutions, such as the Ministry of Finance and Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Cyprus, Independent Authority for Public Revenue, Greece, and leading financial analysts, Deloitte and KPMG.

Digital currencies and blockchain technology

Keeping up to date with the way money is understood, valued and exchanged must also now take into account digital currencies and the concept of blockchain technology. The Decentralized Nicosia Chapter provides valuable insight at its “Introduction to Decentralized Finance, DAO* and Tokenization of Assets”, a free educational seminar at the University of Nicosia.

*DAO stands for Decentralized Autonomous Organization, defined as an encoded yet transparent programme solely controlled by its stakeholders. Bitcoin represents the first real-world implementation of a DAO.

The Decentralized Nicosia Chapter brings together all those who are engaged with the ‘disruptive potential’ of blockchain and seek to further learn and contribute to its development, while adhering to high professional and ethical standards.

Nicosia Accommodation Conveniently Located for Embassies and High Commissions

Hypnos by bed N’mix not only provides all essential hotel and room facilities to the highest standards expected of Nicosia accommodation. The hotel is also conveniently located at the centre of a number of embassies situated in the more northern area of Nicosia, not far from the UN Green Line buffer zone.

Visiting an Embassy in Cyprus during the main tourist season could mean that a holidaymaker discovers their passport has gone missing, a serious or even life threatening accident has occurred or perhaps, a sudden, serious problem affects their stay. A total of 475 British nationals sought assistance from their consulate in Cyprus over a 12 month period (Office of National Statistics, 2016) and needed to travel to the Cyprus capital, Nicosia, where most, if not all of the embassies are located.

Most likely to prioritise staying in Nicosia accommodation

Whatever the time of the year, foreign diplomats, civil servants, and other executive visitors are the most likely to prioritise staying at the best hotels in Nicosia. It can often be all-important to be as near as conveniently possible to an embassy when on official business with a full diary of scheduled meetings and functions. There are currently 44 embassies in Cyprus, all located in Nicosia.

Only a two minute walk away from Hypnos by bed N’mix can be found the Embassy of Spain (Nikolaou Katalanou), Embassy of the Republic of Lebanon in Chiou, which is a block away from the Embassy of the USA (Plutarchou) and the Embassy of Russia in Ayiou Prokopiou.

A few metres west is the Embassy of Italy in Gladstonos, which is over the road from the Embassy of Greece in Lordou Vyronos, from where the Embassy of Sweden (Makarios III Avenue) and the Canadian High Commssion (Themistokli Dervi) can be easily reached.  A short walk down Egypt Avenue leads to Evagorou and the Embassy of the UAE, and walking around the corner to the Embassy of Finland (Archiepiskopou Makariou) almost overlooking the Embassy of Libya (Stasinou).

Further south of the hotel but still within comfortable reach

Other consulates a little further south of the hotel but still within comfortable reach are the Embassies of Brazil, Bulgaria, Switzerland, Israel, Republic of Philippines, Ireland, Poland, Finland and Austria. Interestingly, the Australian High Commission is probably the furthest away, on Pindarou, in the east of the capital.

Another outlier is the British High Commission, which is located on Alexander Pallis Street, within the Green Line buffer zone itself, where a few streets away the Embassy of the Netherlands can also be found.

Nicosia Accommodation: A Healthy Bite To Eat in Every Direction from the Hotel!

Staying at Nicosia accommodation while attending a conference, seminar or expo in the capital? Finding somewhere to grab a decent bite to eat on the go is definitely not a problem! It’s not just during the tourist season that a variety of restaurants, bars and cafés are open.

If you’re staying at the boutique lifestyle hotel, Hypnos by bed N’ mix, for example, the busy business executive and academic will find a variety of eateries a minutes walk in every direction from the hotel.

On your way to one of the many nearby embassies, government buildings, corporate offices or university lecture halls? Even if there’s no time to sit at a table you’re sure to be tempted to pause and buy a local, homemade baked delicacy at the counter of the nearby bakeries of Chrysanthi, Zorbas or Noufaro.

Cuisine to satisfy most tastes

When it’s time for lunch or evening meal, there’s good quality restaurants nearby to Hypnos by bed N’ mix, offering cuisine to satisfy most tastes, including the recently opened Ivory with a brunch-style menu, the 5 star Rous Restaurant, Habibi (Mediterranean, Arabic, Lebanese) and the popular Achilleon (Greek) taverna, to name just a few.

There’s no doubt that some visitors love to explore a menu filled with authentic, local Mediterranean flavour. Traditional Cypriot dishes include souvlakia (grilled meat kebabs), shaftalia (grilled sausage), afella (pork marinated in coriander) with kolokasi (root vegetables). Every meal is sure to be accompanied by the traditional fried halloumi cheese, olives, pitta bread, etc.

Local healthy eating places

The Mediterranean diet and healthy eating is well known of course. Recently, studies have found that following a Mediterranean-type diet can help prevent chronic disease, such as stroke or heart attack. Traditionally eaten in Cyprus, Greece, Crete, southern France, and parts of Italy, the food prepared is sourced from fruits and vegetables, nuts, grains, olive oil, grilled or steamed chicken and seafood. Salad vegetables are eaten at every meal, and are often prepared and dressed with lemon and olive oil.

These days, a number of local healthy eating places have sprung up to reflect the growing interest and demand, including near to the hotel, Express Yourself Healthy, the Aperitivo Jetset Lounge, and Olives and Burgers Healthy Café, a contemporary diner which also offers vegan as well as vegetarian options.

Atmospheric mix of cafes and craft shops

While most business trips run to a tight schedule, there may be time for the culturally curious to enjoy a bite to eat at Büyük Han or Great Inn, a 16th Century Ottoman inn/trading complex with an atmospheric mix of cafes and craft shops. Located around 35 mins north from the hotel, Büyük Han is the largest caravanserai (roadside inn) on Cyprus built by the Ottomans in 1572, and restored during the 1990s, with a central courtyard, oratory, and four two-storey wings.

Coco Mat Sleep System at Hypnos Hotel by bed N’mix may actually Save Your Life!

Life in the Cyprus capital quickly returns to normal after the festive break! The first of the new year’s business meetings, conferences and exhibitions once more sees the business executive striding back through the reception doors of Nicosia city centre hotels.

Many are often on a tight schedule, their diaries filled with back to back client meetings and events, which may only finish late in the early hours. Booking a room at Hypnos Hotel by bed N’mix where every bed is made with the unique Coco-Mat “sleep system” could actually save their life…

Negative effect on the next day’s performance

Missing out on a decent night’s sleep is often shrugged off as “no problem” with any show of low energy and flagging focus a sign of weakness. But casually saying you’ll simply catch up on any lost sleep the next night may not be the easy answer it’s often assumed to be. Recent research indicates that even losing just one night of sleep leads to an immediate increase in a build up of brain protein associated with Alzheimer’s disease.

We are all aware that interfering with the natural sleep pattern can have a temporary negative effect on the next day’s physical and mental performance. But how many people are aware that losing valuable sleep time is one of the strongest risk factors for obesity – by up to 50 per cent in adults. Sleep deprivation is linked to poor appetite regulation, leading to constant food craving and consuming more calories.

Protein waste build-up prevents communication

However, new studies show that sleep loss also leads to a build up of a protein waste product in the fluid between brain cells. Clumps of plaque are formed, which prevent communication between neurons, known as Alzheimer’s disease. PET scans found that sleep deprivation caused an increase in protein waste by up to 5 per cent in brain regions particularly prone to damage during the early stages of Alzheimer’s.

Getting a good night’s sleep does more than simply restore the mind and body for the rigours of the next day – it’s literally a life saver. That’s why the choice of bed, mattress and pillow can make all the difference in protecting your future health.

Each mattress differently filled

The Coco-Mat “sleep system” at Hypnos bed N’mix comprises a base mattress topped with three separate mattresses of different thicknesses, and each differently filled with horsehair from Mongolia, dried seaweed from Greece (to reduce humidity), and a thin goose-down top mattress from China doubling as a duvet. Coils of ‘natural’ rubber attached to a base of wooden slats replace the metal springs of a traditional mattress, which prevent exposure to magnetic fields that can also sometimes disturb sleep.

A natural and powerful sleep-inducing experience, the Coco-Mat “sleep system” at Hypnos bed N’mix not only ensures restorative energy levels for every hotel guest but could also help to protect from the early onset of Alzheimer’s disease.
