10. SOUNDBITE (Dutch) Hubert von Heijden, the inventor and owner of Flexotel:
“Besides the fact that we have created a folding container, I think it””””s also important to say that we created a room where every detail has been taken into account. For example: beds; chairs; closets and electricity wiring are incorporated in the body of the container. That””””s how we are saving lots of money on transportation costs.”

19. SOUNDBITE (Dutch) Hubert von Heijden, an inventor and owner of Flexotel:
“Our price reflects a situation where no hotel rooms are free in the area where the event is taking place. Take for example the Olympic games in London where hotel room prices are going to double or even triple during the event”.

23. SOUNDBITE (Dutch) Gerrit Jan Swinkels, president of the Indoor Brabant:
“For such type of events you need lots of rooms for a short period of time. The Netherlands is not a big county and hotels are relatively small, and then an event organiser needs to find an adequate solution. I think this concept is an ideal solution for accommodation, where visitors or volunteers could stay in rooms that are very close to the event.”

27. SOUNDBITE (Dutch) Hans Smitsers, a visitor of the Indoor Brabant:
“I found that the bed is very good and that you have enough privacy here. It””””s a perfect solution”.
28. Wide of container rooms
Hundreds of Olympic Dutch fans are signing up for portable hotel rooms to help them enjoy the event without paying soaring London prices.
The accommodation comes in the form of simple, foldable cabins, with proper beds and storage.
It looks like a flat container, because it is a flat container.
However, with a hook and a pull, in 10 minutes this folded structure can turn into a proper bedroom.
Dutch company Flexotel has created the container hotel room, which it claims could be an ideal solution for those people who would like to stay near sports or cultural events but don””””t like camping, and do not mind the lack of private washing facilities.
The specially created folding container is easy to put up, with the walls fixed by 4 twist locks.
Once unfolded and tightened, the containers measure 6.05 metre-long (18 feet-long) by 2.44 metre-wide (8 feet-wide).
As maximising space is a key element of the design, the containers get split into two equal rooms of 3 (9.8 feet) by 2,40  (7.8 feet) metres each.
Indeed, one truck can transport 10 containers and that equals 20 rooms. You can license this story through AP Archive:
