Top 5 World’s Weirdest Hotels

Save With Shareagift Towards … A Great Getaway

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

STIAN_BUM HOTEL_IMAGE007 A HOTEL shaped like a COLON is getting rave reviews from punters…who are saying it is 'spicing up their sex life'. The CasAnus Hotel in Belgium offers couples a night inside a colon for just 120 Euros - around £100 - complete with a double bed, shower and central heating. Couples are flocking to the one-room hotel on an island near Antwerp to enjoy a night inside the colon, saying it's 'amazing'. The hotel was designed by Dutch artist Joep van Lieshout and is run by owners Geert and Carla Verbeke-Lens, who say the hotel is 'extremely popular' with couples. STIAN ALEXANDER 07528 679198

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.

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

ODD CHOCOLATE ROOM

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…

Our Top 10 Incredibly Useful Websites!

It emerged this week that a website for refugees which was set up by a couple in Berlin is growing in popularity. The site matches people who have a spare room in cities across Germany with refugees who are searching for accommodation. The couple came up with the idea when they decided they wanted to use their own spare room to home a refugee. They managed to raise six months rent by requesting help from friends and family.

We love the idea behind this useful website and this just goes to show how we are constantly finding new ideas and different ways to use the Internet. With this in mind we set about looking for some of the most exciting and useful websites that the web has to offer and have listed our top 10.

1 – Camelcamelcamel

This handy website lets you track the prices of any Amazon product so that you can be sure you’re getting the best deal. You will be able to see when the cheapest time is to buy your product and can even set reminders on items and the website will send you an email when they fall below a certain price.

2 – Down For Everyone or Just Me?

Pretty self explanatory, this website allows you to type in a URL and will then tell you whether the rest of the world is having problems accessing the site or whether it’s just you.

3 – A Good Movie To Watch

This will save you all those hours of endlessly scrolling through Netflix trying to find something good to watch. You can chose what sort of film the site picks for you based on genre, mood or by using a random search. The site also focuses on more indie and less well known films, which usually means that you haven’t seen them.
