I need to stay for one night at Sheremetyevo International Airport in Russia and I am looking for a cheap airport hotel (30/40 $ per night), preferrably one that is located within the airport. However, as far as I know, I could not find such hotels. Do I need to find a hotel outside the airport?

I found Midland Sheremetyevo Hotel to be the cheapest, but if anyone who knows better places or suggestions, please let me know.

Only myself (single adult male) will be staying at a hotel.

What is cheap for you? what's the limit? –  user1712 Oct 8 '13 at 2:49
    
I would say something like $30-40 per night. The cheaper the better. –  CookieMonster Oct 8 '13 at 2:52
    
You may be interested in the airport's new V-Express hourly capsule hotels. –  Mark Mayo Oct 8 '13 at 3:43
    
Capsule rates start at ~$75 per four-hour block. –  jpatokal Oct 8 '13 at 3:46

If you can get into town and are ok with a hostel, I stayed at Chocolate Hostel 2 years ago, and it was really comfortable. People of all ages were there too. –  Mark Mayo Oct 8 '13 at 4:59

I'm fairly sure the price range you're asking for is impossible.

For close to a decade, Moscow has been the world's most expensive city for business travel, with hotel rooms costing a ludicrous $414 per night on average according to the linked survey in 2013. Even the "V-Express" capsule hotel in SVO, reputedly the temporary home of Edward Snowden, wants 2450 RUR (~US$75) for a mere four hours in a glorified coffin.

There are hostels in central Moscow that can get you a dorm bed for 600 RUR (~US$20), eg. Napoleon, but you'll be sharing the room with half a dozen strangers. None that I know of are particularly convenient to the airport, and the train ride costs 300 roubles one-way, so you're already up to $40 even for this. You could theoretically shave off a few kopecks with buses or local trains, but none are convenient or recommended for a first-time visitor.
