We all go to hotels to relax, put our feet up and relax in a calm and inviting environment. Or so that’s what most hotels aim to do… Today we look at the top 5 weirdest hotels: Where unoffensive decor and normal services are not on their list of priorities.
1. Hotel CasAnus
As the name would suggest, yes, this little hotel is indeed a giant replica of the digestive system…
Located near Antwerp, Belgium, the large colon was, originally, a contemporary art piece by Joep Van Lieshout. It was turned into a hotel when Verbeke-Lens, the current owner, discovered that the vast space inside was suitable for nightly stays by travelers. For a very ‘modest’ fee of $150, you too can stay inside the only Anus hotel in the world.
2. Henna-na Hotel
It may sounds like the start of every dystopian film but, in Japan, a robot hotel has recently opened its doors (automatically, of course).
Henna-na, literally meaning ‘weird’, is fully automated. Meaning you’re greeted by humanoid robots and a dinosaur that speaks English, your luggage is transported by machines and even your bed is made by a robot. There isn’t even the need for keys; every door has facial recognition technology.
Creepy or amazing? You decide.
3. Propeller Island City Lodge
The name doesn’t give much away but this quirky little hotel in Berlin offers the unique experience of staying in different ‘concepts’.
For example, you can choose to spend the night in an ‘upside down room’, where all the furniture is glued to the ceiling and everything is topsy turvy.
If you felt that was disorientating enough, check out their Mirror Room.
Finally, if you’ve ever wondered what it felt like to be dead – book a night in the Coffin Room… The design of the room is meant to recreate the feeling of resting in peace…
4. The Godiva Chocolate Suite
If you have a ‘suite’ tooth, you’ll love this Valentine’s Day promotion at The Bryant Park Hotel, Manhattan. Every year, the hotel teams up with chocolatiers and artists to create a room made entirely of chocolate. Every wall is lined with chocolate and you can even see (and eat) a reproduction of Gustav Klimt’s “The Kiss”. Romantic! With a slight Hansel and Gretel vibe…
5. Tianzi Hotel
Last but not least is Guiness World Record’s “biggest image building”: Tianzi Hotel. Situated in Hebei, China; these three jolly dudes depict the Chinese gods of good fortune, prosperity and longevity. What’s more, you can book out the peach in Fortunes’s hand for a fruity stay!
