Too close for comfort – shipping container hotels

citizenM.jpgRemembering my vocal complaints about the tiny bathroom at a Frankfurt hotel where we stayed for one ICIS Training course, my fellow trainer Nigel showed me this article on CitizenM hotel rooms in today’s Guardian.


He says that we’ll have to try out these compact rooms for one of our next Training courses, where the room is inside a shipping container, and contains all the elements of bedroom and bathroom in one space.


I’m still wincing at the idea of being able to reach out and touch the bed, shower and WC in the same room. Our colleague Kristian stayed in one in Amsterdam. They are very embarrassing for couples, we hear.

    Barbara – stayed in CitizenM this month en route back to US from Africa with my lady. Excellent location and price. Comfortable bed. Great mood lighting. Nothing embarrassing at all.

    Bravo David. Who said north Americans were prudish? On the website, the photo of the room looks nice, especially if you like planes.
