Madrid’s new hotel is complete rubbish… in a good way!

Madrid’s new hotel is complete rubbish… in a good way!

A new mini hotel has opened in the heart of Madrid and it’s proud to say it is rubbish! The Beach Garbage Hotel is built out of 12 tonnes of rubbish from dumps and Western European beaches. An art installation by German artist Ha Schult, the structure is sponsored by Corona, as part of their ‘Coronita Save the Beach’ campaign which aims to protect Europe’s beaches.

The temporary hotel has five rooms decorated with torn Persian rugs, tyres, plastic containers, wooden frames, musical instruments, street lights, pieces of carpet, socks, and children’s books. It opened on 19 January and will close on 23 January. The exclusive hotel is occupied by some lucky winners of a competition run on facebook.
