The Netherlands’ CAPSULE HOTEL, Your Own Survival Pod in a Seaside Dock Location

0

Experience the CAPSULE  Hotel in the Netherlands. Based at F.A.S.T. (Free Architecture Surf Terrain) – a unique and artistic surfers village on the boulevard of Scheveningen near The Hague, the CAPSULE Hotel offers peculiar-looking modules that look like they come right from a James Bond movie. Apparently they originally come from offshore drilling sites, but they are sure to set you off into a different world than a Four Seasons in the middle of an urban center.

They are otherwise modest inside the oblong sleeping quarters, but should you upgrade to the top package, you’ll find a toilet, sheepskins and a DVD player with tons of movies to choose from, including 007 of course.

It is bright orange in color and what once was an oil rig platform is now your bedroom, for a night or two that is. They were built in 1972, are 4.25 metres in diameter and unaltered apart from the addition of a lock on the outside and an ‘emergency’ chemical toilet inside. This is of course, less about luxury and more about a unique experience that you don’t get to experience everyday.

First created for accommodation as an art project in 2004, owner Denis Oudendijk has different models ready for use and is currently working on additional locations in central Amsterdam, Belgium and Nantes, France.
