Pop-Up Container Hotel Opens In Antwerp
Nowadays, we are kind of used to seeing pop-up shops, kiosks, food carts, restaurants, bars, parks and workplaces. However, were still happy to stumble upon this neat pop-up hotel! Sleeping Around is an original concept developed by an Antwerp-based group of four who came up with the idea for a moving hotel.
The concept is to recycle and reuse six, 20 feet-tall, abandoned containers in order to create an accommodation facility that is able to move and pop up in the most extraordinary places. Four of the containers are used as fully-equipped rooms, while the rest two are functioning as breakfast and lounging room and a sauna. The aim of the creators is to offer a pure, authentic yet comfortable and adventurous experience to the visitor. It is also possible to book the whole structure for a private event, such as a winter barbeque.
The element of surprise is in the focal centre of the creators, thus they are planning to take their modern caravan wherever their adventurous spirits wish to go. By now, it has travelled within the city of Antwerp and has changed three locations within five months. Currently, you may find it at the Scheldekaai (in Antwerp) until the end of February, but you can also suggest a location! The accommodation costs €149 per night (except from Friday and Saturday, that are priced at €199) and judging from the rooms’ and the view’s pictures it’s definitely worth it!
