Shortly after the earth quake in January 2010 in Haïti, Tempohousing was contacted by a private hotel owner on the island with a plan to very quickly build a 4 star hotel close to the national airport near the capital of Haïti, Port-au-Prince.
The hotel was intended to house many international guests from the press and from NGO’s that visited the island following the tragic disaster that hit Haïti.
All rooms are designed and engineered based on European building standards. The large bathrooms are fully tiled and provide high standard luxury with a bathtub, toilet, shower and sink. All rooms have their own A/C system and digital door lock system and the extra wide (4,8 m) design of the rooms give a very spacious look and feel.
Technically, these hotelrooms consist of 45 ft (!) shipping container size modules that are transported separately but are connected on site. The well engineered insulation of the facades and windows, make it possible to enjoy in the hotel without disturbance of air traffic noise.
