Weird Themed Hotels around the World

You might find them either high on the creative vibe or just slightly weird. However, these are just a few memorable hotel rooms that you might find yourself lodged in when going all around the world. Enjoy!

Theoretically speaking, when you decide to travel and you search for accommodation, you are basically searching for a room which will cover your basic needs: a bed, a television set, a mini-bar, air-conditioning, a private bathroom, some free Wi-Fi and maybe a small balcony with a view towards something that it is not too depressing – and I mention this as once, when traveling to Transylvania, I got a room with a view precisely towards a cemetery! I am not sure if the view was part of a themed room intention, but anyway … The aforementioned are usually the essentials. When traveling for business and not for leisure, it might come only natural not to care about the color of the sheets or what kind of paintings are hanging on the wall.  Ok… sometimes the view is vital, as I explained before. And if you visit Venice, you simply need and want to admire the floating city of such a noble and long-standing history. Or, if you find yourself in a tiny Greek island, you might feel the urge to stare at the Aegean Sea every afternoon for hours!

However, how many of us can tell a story about them staying in a… chocolate room or in a room that is filled in with… mathematical equations!? Well, I personally don’t know anyone who stayed in such an extravagant hotel room but, nevertheless, there are many options for those who wish to stay in a place that they will remember for long… Here are a few thematic hotel rooms around the world that I hope will manage to dazzle you, not to mention to tempt you!

Godiva Chocolate Room

I mentioned chocolate earlier, didn’t I? Well, in New York – that marvelous city that never sleeps and where anything can take place – chocolate is in its right proper place, as there is the Godiva Chocolate Suite awaiting. Chocolate walls and paintings await for those lucky ones who will have a great chance to see their choco-dreams come true. Chocolate walls forever! Mind your … bites in order for the next visitors to find something left there as well!

Ice Hotel

Most people like it hot, but what about those who might crave for something freezing cold? Obviously, they are heading to the Swedish town of Jukkasjarvi, where an ice hotel a

waits the ones eager for unusual, frozen experiences.

MIT@Hotel

The knowledge seekers, geeks and nerds will definitely feel comfortable at the Hotel@MIT. This is a technology themed hotel with walls that reveal the secrets of science and bedspreads that are simply full of mathematical equations. Recommended for aspiring PhD students! They won’t waste any minute on useless bookings and they will gain a whole lot of knowledge in their travels!

MINI Cooper Hotel

If you decide to travel by car instead of catching a plane, then I have an ideal stop for you. In Helsinki, the capital of Finland, you can spend the night in a hotel inspired by the European youth’s favorite car: MINI. The room is filled with MINI merchandise in a way that it might as well inspire you to search for a MINI Cooper for sale now instead of later … in case you didn’t drive to Helsinki with your MINI that is!

The Beatles Hotel

For music and pop culture lovers there is nothing that beats the Hard Day’s Night Hotel in Liverpool, which pays tribute to no other than The Beatles! I have to warn you that you might find yourself facing a tough dilemma after you’ll walk in the hotel’s lobby: would you choose the Lennon Suite or the McCartney one? I personally love both!

Mirror-cube Tree Hotel

Do you love nature? I bet you do. Then how about spending a night in a “sanctuary among the trees”? It is called the “Mirrorcube” and it is a transparent cube “planted” among trees deep inside in Scandinavian forests. Ecological and fancy, this is an option for design lovers and fans of alternative eco solutions as well.

  2. Wow, amazing! My brother-in-law stayed at the ice hotel once; I think he was quite impressed with it. My one concern about the mirrored treehouse would be that birds would crash into it often–I wonder if that’s a problem there?

  3. Awe! Here we are. I would stay in the John Lennon suite cuz he’s dead and was my fave Beatle! No tree-house in the jungle for me thanks. LOL! All in all John, this was a worthwhile presentation, especially when the wander lust bug bites, it’s handy to get your take on this! Thanx once again… BTW, how did you get the subway tunnel? That was a good idea for a most unusual shot. Bueno!

      • I was still hoping The Beatles would reunite after John died because his son Julian could have filled for him. Once George went, I finally accepted it was hopeless. And their music was even medicinal for plants…
