Here’s a Portable Hotel Designed for Goers of Large-Scale Events

Say goodbye to premium hotels and Airbnb.


Wherever the world’s biggest events are, there should be a portable, budget hotel that can sit at the parking lot catering to the lodging of the huge crowd. Say the World Cup or the Olympics, spectators rush to the events only to be faced with full hotel accommodations. For this, perhaps Snoozebox is the solution – because tents do not have toilets.

This ready-made hotel by a UK-based company only takes under 48 hours to assemble. It is designed to accommodate attendees of large-scale events, which can be requested by the guests.

“We can create a hotel anywhere a guest wants one,” says Snoozebox chief executive Lorcán Ó Murchú.

According to him, the original prototype included 3,000 parts, but the newest design has only 600 to make it easier and faster to assemble. There is no worry for the ground beneath to be even too as every Snoozebox set comes with hydraulics tools to even it out.

Once the people know that an event has Snoozeboxes sitting on the parking lot, they can book a unit online. It is relatively affordable – as little as $110 per night depending on the event – compared to hotel and Airbnb prices.

Snoozebox offers flexible configurations and room availability within its 12-foot length, 6.5-foot width, and 6-foot height. Each room features an en-suite wet room with shower, basin and toilet, serviced daily with quality towels and toiletries.

Not to mention the comfortable bed, air conditioning, flat-screen, free WiFI and even a personal safe, guests at events and festivals have little to worry about for lodging when there is Snoozebox.

The guests check in with the help of a hotel staff through the tablets in front of the Snoozebox containers. And each container, with two which can be stacked, is divided into six units. Access to the units is via stairs.

As photographed above, the beds are in bunk. They are up to four flatbeds in twin or queen sizes on top of each other.

Snoozebox is the brainchild of late entrepreneur Robert Breare and retired Formula 1 driver David Coulthard, who originally used shipping containers for car-racing events. Now, the company has affixed units at Silverstone race track in England.

Its ingenious interior design was created by Tangerine, which is a London-based industrial design agency that produced British Airway’s first business class beds.

Planning to go to the World Expo 2020 in Dubai and the World Cup in Russia in 2018? Snoozebox will see you there.
