1. Crane Faralda Hotel – Amsterdam, The Netherland
Guests will forgive this hotel’s less-than-glamorous dockside location once they get inside the 150 ft – high room: you can rotate 360 degrees in the room to enjoy the panoramic views of the sea. It is from scrap to Europe’s most unique and sensational hotel experience. The hotel has only opened for a few months and already nominated for three prestigious European Hospitality Awards. Discover this secret and hidden place in the sky of Amsterdam!
2. Jumbo Stay – Stockholm, Sweden
This former Jumbo Jet, dating from around 1976, has been converted to provide overnight accommodation. You can choose from an suite room, budget dormitory or twin rooms. The most expensive room is a luxury cockpit suite complete with panoramic view where you might even catch some planes landing at Stockholm Arlanda Airport next door.
3. Tianzi Hotel, Shijiazhuang, China
You might be wondering why we show you a picture of 3 Chinese gods, Fu (in red) symbolizing fortune, Lu (in green) symbolizing prosperity, and Shou symbolizing longevity. Well, this is the structure of a hotel in China – Tianzi Garden Hotel (literal translation: Son of Heaven Hotel). The peach in Shou’s left hand is actually a suite (called the “Peach Suite”) in which the two holes are windows. The hotel’s official website introduced that it takes only 20 minutes with the Beijing Bus from World Trade Centre in Beijing to the Garden.
4. Poseidon Undersea Resort, Fiji Islands
Though this underwater hotel has been taking 13 years to build, there’s still no sign its opening time. So far, an estimated 150,000 people have registered to stay at the Poseidon Undersea Resort when it open. It’s designed by L. Bruce Jones, chairman of Trition/US submarines company.
5. Capsule Hotel, Osaka, Japan
The Capsule Hotel that is originated from Osaka, is a popular concept in Japan. Stacked side by side and on top of one another to maximise the space, you can expect to pay around £30 per night. The idea has even travelled over to Europe that Helsinki airport will introduce their own sleeping pods soon.
6. Palacio de Sal, Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia
The Palacio de Sal – ‘Salt Palace’ – on the salt flats of Uyuni, is completely constructed from salt, including most of the furniture. There’s an impressive lobby, bar and 16 rooms with private bathrooms, central heating and electricity. The restaurant’s speciality? Salt chicken, of course.
7.The Hobbit Motel, Woodlyn Park, Waitomo, New Zealand
Put aside your preconceptions of the soulless motel – these Lord of The Rings inspired rooms invoke homely charms that is suitable for the most discerning of hobbits. It locates two hours from Auckland and just two minutes from the Waitomo Caves. The slogan of the hotel is very appealing: come to sleep in the shire.
8 The Dog Bark Park Inn, Idaho, USA
The Dog Bark Park Inn takes the term ‘dog lover’ to a whole new level. Owned by chainsaw artists, the B&B is located inside a 12-foot beagle. Guests enter into the beagle’s body through a second-storey deck. The Hotel is, of course, pet-friendly.
9. The Sand Castle Hotel, Weymouth, UK
The world’s first sand castle hotel has recently opened at Weymouth beach – a seaside town of dorset in the UK. The hotel was constructed by the British culptor Mark Anderson from approximately 1000 tonnes of sand, built over 15sqm reaching a height of 4m. For a mere 21USD a night, guests can enjoy sleeping on a sand bed, bask in the summer sun and listen to the tide.
10. Icehotel, Jukkasjärvi, Sweden
Twenty years ago, the world’s first Icehotel was opened in Jukkasjärvi, Sweden. From then, every November, ice from the frozen Torne river is fused with snow (‘snice’) to remake the hotel and new themed suites are designed every year. It is definitely a hotel you should try.
