Normally one books into a hotel and drives over to get to it. Hotel rooms don’t magically appear wherever you want them to be. Until now. Until Scandinavia. Until Scandic hotel chain came up with the really interesting idea to bring the hotel to the guest instead of lure the guest to the hotel. It’s certainly not your typical overnight stay and though it’s pretty high up there on the price, you know that no matter where you want to stay, so long as it’s road or boat-accessible, you can have your cute little almost bunker-style breakfast included mobile hotel room brought to your location. You found a great lakeside spot with an amazing view? No problem! There’s a little island you want to spend a romantic weekend on? Scandic To Go portable hotel will get to you.
The Scandic’s To Go hotel rooms are 18 sqm in size with a terrace and double bed. It is equipped with free Wi-Fi and air conditioning, while the bathroom is full and includes a shower, soft bathrobes and beautifully scented toiletries from Face. Naturally, breakfast is included so that one can receive the full hotel experience on a stretch of land that doesn’t have any other hotels within the vicinity.
At about 2500 Kroner (about $330) a night, it’s a rather good price to dish out on such a service, despite the fact that a mountain hideaway may not be possible. However, the views these rooms can afford you, even though the days on which you can order them are restricted, are spectacular and otherwise impossible to get.
Since its launch in June 2014, the Scandic To Go mobile hotel has been placed in Trondheim in central Norway, a theme park in central Sweden, by a lake in Finland and in some other locations. Though only in Scandinavia at the moment, we love the idea that someday these types of services may be available everywhere!
What do you think? Would you stay in such a hotel?
