The last time we looked at a hotel with ultra-compact rooms was when Yotel made their move into Manhattan. Now there's a new microhotel player on the scene, and they're ready to make their move into...well, anywhere.
Snoozebox is a UK-based portable microhotel that has converted shipping containers into banks of tiny hotel rooms. Each room boasts its own bathroom, bed, flatscreen TV, personal safe and wireless internet.
The banks are self-contained, meaning there's no need to plug them into a power or water source. And since they're made from shipping containers, the hotel itself can go anywhere a truck can get to.
While it sounds like a mere concept, the company is up and running. Snoozebox currently has units in service at the Olympics, housing security details, and will be on-site at this month's Edinburgh Festival as well.
