To London will arrive a floating hotel, converted from a prison for migrants

In the early autumn in London will be opened an unusual hotel called the Good Hotel. The object is a three-storey floating structure. In addition, not so long ago the building was used in the Netherlands as a prison for illegal migrants.

Now a luxury hotel with such extraordinary past belongs to the businessman Martin Dresen. The floating hotel will be located in Docklands — Eastern part of the city. Previously, this territory was considered an industrial area, now the district is actively built with residential and commercial properties. There are no hotels in Docklands that could compete with a Good Hotel in this concept.


Good Hotel will stay in London for 5 years. According to preliminary data, one overnight stay in a hotel room will cost £110. Martin Dresden plans to open 8 of these mobile hotels in different countries up to 2020.


In 2015, the British press reported that in recent years, many Londoners moved out of conventional flats and houses on floating real estate. This trend is due to the high cost of housing in the capital of the United Kingdom.
