This, claims VisitLondon, is the world’s smallest pop-up hotel (as opposed to the world’s smallest hotel, which, astonishingly, is not in London, but the Bavarian town of Amberg).
Here you can see it in all its airstreamy glory at Covent Garden, on its tour around the capital; its frankly superfluous excuse being to remind tourists that you’re never more than a five minute walk from 20 top London attractions.
I am assuming that they don’t mean this literally (in my case the 20 top attractions include Morley’s Chicken, several dead stores, King William IV pub, KFC, two charity shops, Tescos and the Yummy Yummy Chinese takeaway) – or that they don’t count Greenwich as London (right ‘n all) but nevertheless, it IS coming to our neck of the woods and YOU have the opportunity to win a night’s stay in all its shiny luxury.
Just imagine getting out of your swanky double bed, gliding straight into the en-suite shower whilst watching your flat screen TV and listening to groovy sounds on the stereo, before stepping into the morning glory of the Old Royal Naval College…
And why not, I guess? Who ever actually stays as a hotel guest in their own town?
Not for me this one – caravans give me the willies – but if you fancy being a tourist in your own town on the 19th March, register here, before March 7th…
