Overview

About Capsule Hotel

Your own survival pod! Escape pod hotel in a seaside dock location.

Based at F.A.S.T. (Free Architecture Surf Terrain) - a unique and artistic surfers village on the boulevard of Scheveningen near The Hague, your room is a bright orange survival pod which once saw service on an oil rig platform. Originally built in 1972 they are 4.25 metres in diameter and unaltered apart from the addition of a lock on the outside and an ‘emergency’ chemical toilet inside. Thankfully sited on land, they're much more comfortable than their original purpose. While not everyone’s luxury choice, each pod provides cosy protection from the elements for up to three occupants.

First created for accommodation as an art project in 2004, owner Denis Oudendijk has different models ready for use and is currently working on additional locations in central Amsterdam, Belgium and Nantes, France.

I have spent many unpleasant hours in one of these pods during survival training in Norway. They were originally used on the Ekofisk field but were phased out years ago because they were so difficult to steer. I cannot imagine actually paying to sleep in one, for one thing the motion is most peculiar and very unpleasant.

I worked at the plant that repaired these survival systems after being on offshore rigs. I can not think of anyone who would be comfortable in these things.
