London hosted the World’s first Netflix hotel last weekend, where guests paid for their stay by bingeing on their favourite TV shows. Isn’t it a fantsastic idea?
On arrival, guests were handed a Samsung Galaxy S8 before beginning their stay in a suite inspired by Netflix most binge-worthy shows – Stranger Things, Orange Is the New Black, House of Cards, Pretty Little Liars, The Crown, Riverdale, Gilmore Girls, Narcos, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Black Mirror, The OA, Better Call Saul, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and new show GLOW.
At the centre of the Bed 'N' Binge Retreat there was a luxury yurt playing some of the show's iconic soundtracks, with a bar serving a range of Netflix-inspired cocktails.
The Bed 'N' Binge retreat coincided with the launch of 'Go Binge': a new service from Three that allows binge-obsessed customers to watch and listen to Netflix, SoundCloud, Deezer or TV Player without fear of exceeding their data limit.
Lianne Norry, who's Director of Brand and Communications at Three, said: "There are currently no plans to extend the running of the retreat or take it on tour, but given its success you never know..."
We hope this wasn’t a one time thing and that other cities could enjoy this great pop-up idea!
