The Pop-Up Hotel is joining forces with Dutch company Flexotel to provide a solid structure room that will complement its current canvas hotel offering. The construction means that these ‘collapsible’, fold away structures can be erected and dismantled quickly and efficiently. In addition, they are lockable – a distinct advantage to guests. These added benefits will extend The Pop-Up Hotel’s capacity to provide practical, comfortable accommodation for events around the UK.
Launching at The Pop-Up Hotel at Glastonbury in June, the Flexotel rooms will form a unique ‘Urban Quarter’ to the hotel, complete with outdoor corridors behind a striking facade. Mark Sorrill, founder and director of The Pop-Up Hotel, said: “We have taken inspiration from the festival’s brilliant production of Block 9, a powerful, immersive, cultural experience with a distinctly gritty, urban feel. It is a really exciting new direction for us which, although a completely different feel to our more whimsical canvas rooms, actually complements the experiential nature of the hotel.
“Following the launch of the Flexotel rooms at the festival, we plan on visiting a number of sporting events around the UK,” said Sorrell. “The accommodation requirements for these tend to be more functional and Flexotel fits the bill perfectly.” www.thepopuphotel.com
