A Tsarist era locomotive depot has been transformed into a hotel. 84 containers spread across two levels have been converted into a room equipped to allow natural sunlight and look over the spacious impeccably-designed common areas that hint at the building’s industrial heritage.

The Hektor Container is close to Tallinn’s main railway station and in the heart of the increasingly fashionable Telliskivi area, a former industrial complex which is the now the buzzing, creative heart of the Estonian capital.
