unqiue hotels

Tired of the usual 2 double beds, minibar, and third-floor parking lot view? Sick of the check in, check out, breakfast is served before 10, pool closes at 11 type of hotel?

If this sounds like hell to you, don’t throw out travel altogether. You might just need a new point of view. Here are 5 unique hotels that definitely won’t put you to sleep.

Need hotel accommodations? Call Maupintour.

1. Skylodge Adventure Suites

Located 90 minutes north of Cusco in the Peruvian Andes, Skylodge Adventure Suites is like nothing you’ve seen before. First, you’ll climb 400 meters to your room.

You’ll stay in a completely transparent hanging bedroom, with amazing 300-degree views of the Sacred Valley.

Each suite comes with 4 beds, a dining area, and a private bathroom.

Zipline down in the morning for the full experience.

2. Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort

Most hotels have the Northern Lights, Igloos, ice plunges, and dogsledding, so Kakslauttanen shouldn’t be much different than what you’re already used to…right? A stay here is the experience of a lifetime. Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort is located in Finland and is constantly rated as one of the best places in the world to see the Aurora Borealis.

Stay between August and April for a fantastic show.

Choose to sleep in a glass igloo pictured above, or the real thing pictured below, if you’re really adventurous.

3. Giraffe Manor

This boutique hotel in Nairobi, Kenya is situated on 140 acres of indigenous forest in the Langata suburb. The building itself dates back to the 1930s and is full of charm, but what makes the manor truly unique is the other guests on the property.

The giraffes visit every morning and evening and can be fed from either floor. It’s an amazing experience.

4. Hotel de Vrouwe van Stavoren

Yo-ho-ho and … a barrel of wine!⠀ ⠀ If you tell your friends that you were sleeping in a barrel, they will think that you are either crazy or you have nowhere to live. But what surprise they will have when they find out that this barrel in which you spent the night was a comfortable hotel!⠀ ⠀ Yes, the real hotel from wine barrels. This hotel-restaurant is called De Vrouwe van Stavoren and is located in the northern port town of Stavoren, Netherlands.⠀ ⠀ The hotel is of course built from ordinary materials and looks quite ordinary, but the rooms themselves are real barrels in which French Beaujolais wine from the local Albada’s winery was previously stored and aged. The volume of these barrels is 14,500 liters.⠀ ⠀ The cost of these rooms is 74-119 euros per night, depending on the season, and if you arrive in winter, it will be even less – 18 euros per night, which is cheaper than most hostels in the Netherlands.⠀ ⠀ Йо-хо-хо и … бочка вина!⠀ ⠀ Если вы скажете друзьям, что спали в бочке, они подумают что вы или сошли с ума или вам стало негде жить. Но какое у них будет удивление когда узнают, что эта бочка в которой вы ночевали, была комфортабельным отелем! ⠀ ⠀ Да-да самый настоящий отель из винных бочек. Этот отель-ресторан называется De Vrouwe van Stavoren и находится в северном портовом городке Ставорен, Нидерланды.⠀ ⠀ Отель конечно построен из обычных материалов и выглядит совсем обычно, но сами номера являются самыми настоящими бочками, в которых раньше хранилось и выдерживалось французское вино Божоле из местной винодельни "Albada’s". Объем этих бочек составляет 14 500 литров. ( некоторые туристы утверждают, что в номере пахнет этим прекрасным вином до сих пор!)⠀ ⠀ Стоимость таких номеров составляет 74-119 евро за ночь в зависимости от сезона, а если приедете в зимнее время, то это будет еще меньше – 18 евро за ночь, что дешевле, чем большинство общежитий Нидерланд. ⠀ ⠀ #rumhotel#hotelrum#strangehotel#weirdhotel#hotelnovotel#unusualhotels#travel#trip#hotel#hotels#hostel#foxbox#странныеотели#необычныеотели#нестандартныеотели#путешествия#хостел#отель#отели#旅馆#Holland #Нидерланды#Niederlande#голландия#stavoren #ставорен #DeVrouwevanStavoren⠀

Do you love wine? Do you love wine so much that you want to sleep in a wine barrel?

If so, we have good news. This hotel in the Netherlands has created a hotel experience that pays homage to four massive, old wine casks, allowing you to get a good night’s sleep amongst the tannins. It’s one of the cheaper hotels on the list, you can snag a room for under $100 a night.

5. Utter Inn

Scandinavia sure has a lot of interesting hotels to choose from. At the Utter Inn, there’s no need to choose between above and below the water. Both are options.

This little inn features an underwater bedroom below the surface – just climb down these trusty stairs.
