Top 9 Coolest Hotels in the World
There are some basic things every human seeks from a hotel – high level of hygiene, cozy bed and safe stay. But, we all know that the hotels around the world, especially those with more than 3 stars can offer much more than that. They often will let you use the pools and the spa, play tennis or simply enjoy some quiet time in their libraries or lobbies. Yes, that is all great, but sometimes even that is not enough, because the cooler and more fun things they add in their hotels the more tourists and curious visitors they would attract. The following list will show you some coolest hotels in the world, where even sleeping is a unique experience.
#1. The Hobbit Motel
You will simply crave to visit this place if you are a fan of The Lord of the Rings. Yes it is in New and the building has small doors and circular windows. Woodlyn Park in New Zealand allows its guests to experience a night in the life of a hairy footed midget, just like in the movie. It’s not just for the fans, as you can sleep in a beached ship or an authentic freighter plane from Vietnam next door.
You always dreamed of staying in a hotel with wheels? Now it exists. it goes to and from across the continent of South America, shuttling weary travelers up mountainsides and across deserts. You wonder how they do it. Well they are fully equipped with 30 beds, hot showers, and continental breakfasts.
#3. Null Stern
Translated from German it means “zero stars” and yes, it does look like a starless hotel. A former Swiss nuclear bunker was turned into a hotel and even though that doesn’t sound too appealing the service is on a really high level. You can even have a butler serve you breakfast through a hidden tunnel. Do you like this place?
#4. Marmara Antalya
Also known as the spinning hotel. It is situated in a tank holding 478 tons of water, and can make up to 1 revolution every 2 hours with the help of 6 electric motors. So if you go to bed and your room faces the hotel’s garden it doesn’t mean that in the morning you won’t have a room with a view on the Turkish part of the Mediterranean.
#5. Capsule Hotel
This thing called hotel is so popular in the Netherlands, and these bright orange capsules were originally escape pods located on oil rigs. Although they seem small they are pretty spacious with the ability to comfortably accommodate up to three people. Don’t worry about the toilette; it stands next to the bed. But besides that fact, these capsules are proudly taking their spot on this cool hotel list.
#6. Magic Mountain
The hotel is located in the Huilo Huilo Reserve in Southern Chile, and comes fully equipped with a waterfall that originates at the peak and when turned on full blast comes cascading down over the windows. But if that is not enough thrilling for you, you can always go for a hike through the jungle. And if that gets boring, then what? You can go Skiing. Seriously, the slopes are right around the corner and they’re open 365 days a year.
#7. Burj Al Arab
The hotel already is widely recognizable around the world because of its ship shape. The Burj Al Arab is so luxurious that some people call it the 7 star hotel (even though there is no such thing because the maximum recognized rating is 5). But it’s not only an icon for Dubai or the United Arab Emirates, it’s also a symbol of the modern engineering. The world’s fourth tallest hotel is built on a pile of reclaimed dirt 250 meters out into the ocean.
#8. Dog Bark Park Inn
It’s like a version of the Trojan horse, except it is a dog and it is built in Idaho, USA. The hotel has two stories, and offers ample room to its guests along with plenty of surprises. See that fire hydrant in the corner? Thats where you do your business. Kind of cool and a little bit rustic, right?
#9. Das Park
Have you ever felt like sleeping in a sewage concrete pipes? Well if that was your thing, now you can pay for it, because some creative people have turned these pipes in a hotel room. It is located in the banks of the Danube in the Austrian city of Linz. Each segment weighs about 9.5 tons, so you don’t have to be too concerned about your friends rolling you into the river at night. You for sure will feel like a rat (just kidding).
