Have The Night Of Your Life At One Of These 5 Quirky Container Hotels In KL & Selangor!

For a quick weekend getaway in the city, nothing screams fun and spontaneity than staying in a container hotel. What exactly is a container hotel, you may ask? Well, a container hotel is exactly that, a hotel with large, metal shipping containers instead of rooms.

You might be appalled by the idea at first, but container hotels have become a huge trend all over the world for their simplicity, cost-effectiveness, sustainability, and the fact that they’re like a blank canvas, you can design them however you want!

This trend has seen a growth of container-style hotels popping up in Malaysia, with a few located right here in KL and Selangor. Check out the following container hotels in the area that you should check out next time you’re looking for cool accommodation:

Container Hotel, Jalan Delima

The most well-known hotel on this list, Container Hotel is one of the first of its kind in KL, and people flock to their doors from all over to experience a night in a freight container themselves. Embodying the Japanese philosophy of compact living, Container Hotel has put together several brightly coloured shipping containers, tastefully decorated, perfect for short stays in the city. Besides having containers for rooms, you can also go the more adventurous route and stay inside a concrete cylinder or even a cabana tent! With its central location that’s walking distance to several main tourist attractions, it’s no wonder that the hotel has proven popular over the past couple of years.

For travelers looking for a quick snooze in between flights, Capsule is perfect for you. Created by the same people behind Container Hotel, the same concept of stacked containers as living spaces is used here. What differentiates this hotel with the one in KL is that the containers are divided up into smaller capsule spaces that can comfortably bed one person. Called the CapSpace, 120 capsules, divided into male or female only and mixed sections, are available for travelers if you don’t feel like spending the night on the airport floor. If you’re with a partner, there’s also capsules for two available as well. Sounds like a great space to catch some Zs while waiting for your next flight!

Address: Lot L1-2 & 3, Gateway, Terminal KLIA2, KL International Airport, Jalan KLIA 2/1, 64000 KLIA, Sepang, Selangor

Even though this hotel isn’t entirely built of freight containers, two of the rooms in their courtyard are built in them! Simple, minimalistic rooms make up most of their lodgings, and the place is located right in the heart of town at Bukit Bintang, so it’s walking distance to lots of major attractions. It’s a nice, quiet place to settle down for the night in the middle of the bustling city.

Under the same group as the Container Hotel in KL, they also have branches in Ipoh and Penang as well! Container Hotel in Ipoh has a similar concept to Capsule in KLIA2, where instead of rooms, lodgers will sleep in individual, compartmentalized pods. Divided into female only, mixed, and twin pods, choose your preferred room and settle down for a comfortable sleep. The hotel’s interior space is also converted into a creative, artistic space for artists to share and display their works. Sounds like a cool place to me!
