Sleep Like a Baby Inside This London Hotel Room Designed to Look Like a Womb

In case you ever felt the urge to be back in your mother’s womb.

Can’t remember the last time you got a full night’s sleep? One London hotel wants to help with that. It’s taking its guests on a trip down memory lane, bringing them all the way back to those peaceful snoozes spent inside their mother’s womb.

For nine months, architects have been hard at work to recreate a womb inside of the London hotel room, Evening Standard reports. The womb rooms, officially referred to as Zed Rooms, feature soft lighting, soothing colors, and a cozy bed nook. The layout is meant to promote REM sleep, and is inspired by the last few weeks of pregnancy when babies get an average of 12 hour of sleep every day.

“Tapping into the emotional and physical, no stone has been left unturned trying to soothe the effects of this in the design architecture of our new cutting-edge sleep retreat,” sleep psychologist Hope Bastine tells Evening Standard.

Located in the hip neighborhood of Shoreditch, Zed Rooms will cost guests $240 a night.

A paltry 5 percent of new parents get the recommended amount of sleep, according to a 2016 survey. Perhaps this quirky hotel room, or your own DIY womb alcove at home, is the answer to all those sleepless nights.
