New and different hotels

trips

Going in a vacation is great. No matter where the destination is, you can easily find something enjoyable to do and have a good time. But hotels… ah, hotels, this is yet a complete different story. When being tired after a long day of sightseeing we reach our hotel and we wish for a clean, cosy and comfortable space to relax. We don’t want noisy neighbours, dirty showers or uncomfortable beds. If not, we’d go to a cheap youth hostel. In addition, we secretly wish to have something more than a bed and a shower. So that we can tell everybody. That our hotel was special because… (fill in the gap: because it was in a great location/because it had a circular bed, etc, etc, etc). But some hotels really ARE special, and they use this bizarreness as their sign of identity to attract customers.

There are bubble hotels in France which are inflabable rooms who looks like igloos

Or real igloos in Finland (for the luxurious folks) or in Zermatt, Switzerland for those who have a tight budget:

Some might like to hang on the trees and remember when they were kids with houses in the trees in Catalonia:

 

For those who like camping even in big cities can book a caravan in the Hütten Palast hotel in Berlin, Germany:

And have you thaught on staying in a lighthouse but with all the comodities of modern life? This can be done in the West Usk Lighthouse Hotel in the United Kingdom:

If a lighthouse is too close to sea or too high in the sky, you might want to try a cave hotel, and the  Sala Silvermine in Sweden is a good option:

If you are a fan of Game of Thrones  Castle Liebenstein in Germany is a good place to recreate the White Walkers scene:

Maybe you are more a fisher kind of person, and I’ve found the perfect spot for you. It’s in Sweden, and it’s a floading hotel.

Idyllic: The floating hotel is located in the middle of a Swedish lake east of Stockholm

Like art expositions, there are also hotels that rotate among different cities, like the Everland. A single-room hotel that has already been shipped to Paris, Leipzig and Yverdon:

Looking for something more “industrial”? Das Parkhotel in Austria is maybe the thing you are looking for:

 

And, finally, if you want something radical, or you’ve been too bad, the Celica hostal in Ljubljana is a jail that has been rebuilt, we believe it’s pretty cool!
