And like so many other previous Russian proposals this one will come to nothing IMO.

"And NEM-2 (now we conditionally call it this way) is created under a completely different undertaking. It can be a high-end module for 4-6 people. They will have comfortable cabins, two toilets, internet. In general, comfort is how much it can be provided in space.

I wonder who'll staff any future Orbital Hotel wether it be ISS after '25 or alternative Bigelow Hotel/s.  It'll mean interesting additional roles for accompanying astronauts / cosmonauts to steward & mollycoddle fee paying clients even if the expectation is for visting guests to muck in as much as possible.
