Sleeping around AntwerpAntwerp, Belgium
Saved from abandonment on Antwerp’s docks, this collection of shipping containers has been revamped and artfully furnished for a new life as a roaming hotel. The four-room pop-up container village boasts everything you’d find in a traditional guesthouse – a comfy bed with luxury linen, air-conditioning, iPod docking station and a bathroom complete with a rain shower – all squeezed into a 20-metre box.
There’s a separate lounge container for breakfast in the morning and a glass of red before you slip off to bed, and plans for a sauna are hot in the works. So far the hotel has graced the city’s riverfront and partnered with a pop-up restaurant called Glow, but its future destinations are at the behest of public votes.
- Four rooms made of 20-foot recycled shipping containers
- Lounge container for breakfast or a glass of wine at night
- Dock for iPod
Around US$315 per night, including breakfast.
There’s a sauna container in the works and also a chance that the hotel will have to move to a new location – check their website for updates.
