Capsule Hotel

There are a lot of strange hotels in the world. One of the strangest is the Capsule Hotel at the boulevard of Scheveningen near The Hague in the Netherlands. Your room is a bright orange survival pod which once saw service on an oil rig platform.

Originally built in 1972 and unaltered apart from the addition of a lock on the outside and an 'emergency' chemical toilet inside. While not everyone's luxury choice, each pod provides cosy protection from the elements for up to three occupants.
