Sleeping Around – Container Pop Up Hotel

A cool new hotel concept from Belgium. The Sleeping Around pop up hotel is made of disused ship containers which are left behind in ports as usually it is more expensive to send them back. This compact yet luxurious 4-room hotel, easy to move around the city and perhaps the world, offers all the mod cons including air-conditioning, rain shower and iPod docking station.

After a brief stop at Interieur Biennale in Kortrijk, Sleeping Around is currently in Antwerp near Schelde in Rijnkaai 150.
