Scandic To Go – Shipping Container Makes for a Cozy Hotel Room

The Swedish hotelier, Scandic Hotels, has been providing a rather unique experience for its customers over the course of the last two years. They’ve been operating a mobile hotel called “Scandic To Go” that can be delivered to any location throughout the Nordic region.

They currently have two units dedicated to Scandic To Go. The units consist of shipping containers that have been transformed into cozy living spaces. Being shipping containers, they have small floor area of just 193 square feet (18 square meters).

Despite their size, they’ve managed to incorporate quite a lot into the small space, including two bedrooms, a living area and a bathroom. There’s also the essential tea/coffee station as well as wifi and air conditioning. The interiors have been kitted out in plush décor, making it a comfortable home away from home.

The bathroom is equipped with a full shower, toilet, sink, toiletries and soft bathrobes. The finish looks to be quite dark with different shades of blue found throughout. The dark finish is combated by the large patio doors found in both of the bedrooms.

On the outside, there’s a substantial decking area allowing you to fully enjoy your chosen surroundings. It’s an interesting concept that’s similar to travelling hotels.
