The Sleeping Around hotel refreshes the pop-up experience with its concept of an adventurous, moving caravan.

The concept of the pop-up is one we’ve seen countless times in several incarnations: retail shop, food truckpharmacy, mobile school bus, fashion + auto combo. However, none have struck our fancy quite like Sleeping Around, a new Belgium-based company. Not just any old pop-up hotel experience – this constantly moving pop-up shipping container hotel may appear in the middle of a busy shopping street, beside a city capital building, or smack dab in the corner of a park. The idea was to create an accommodating facility which was easily transportable that could crop up in the most extraordinary of places. Without an address, guests locate their room by GPS — currently the hotel is overlooking a riverfront in Antwerp, and will soon be moving onto a new location.
