Hotello gives new meaning to that expression about someone ‘living out of a suitcase.’ This usually refers to people who can’t find the time to unpack, which is why they grab clothes and other essentials straight out of their suitcase after they get home from a trip.
Would you pay a hotel so they’ll set you up with non-accommodations so you can sleep like a homeless person? It sounds far out, but that’s what Faktum Hotels, a Swedish concept hotel, is currently offering to interested patrons.
Hey, Gundam fan. Yes, you – I’m talking to you. It seems like you’re not alone in your desire to own and have everything that screams Gundam, because the folks over at Tokyo’s Pacific Le Daiba probably knew that there were more fans like you in the world.
This is a torture chamber designed to give nightmares to people who hate alarm clocks. Just kidding. It’s actually a one-room hotel where guests get to have an entire train station clock to themselves. In other words, it’s a torture chamber designed to give nightmares to people who hate alarm clocks.
Over the years, hotels have become more than just places where people sleep while they’re on business or on vacation. Rooms now have graffiti on their walls (like the Panic Room) and some aren’t really rooms anymore, but pods (like the Bubble Rooms).
Some people keep to themselves so much, that others describe them as living in their own “worlds” or “bubbles.” But you don’t have to be an introvert to actually live in a literal bubble in one of the two hotels that offer plastic rooms in France: the Attrap’Rêves and Sky River.
How cool would it be to live for a few days in a volcano? I’m not talking about the real ones because that would just be a literal death wish. What I’m talking about is the Montana Magica Lodge in Huilo Huilo, Chile that’s built to look like a true-blue, albeit miniature volcano.
Technology is great when it works, but when things go wrong, it can really piss people off. Think back to the Y2K issues that had some software malfunctioning due to the new millennium – it actually spawned an entire industry to test and prevent major issues from happening on 1/1/2000 – and for the most part it was a non-event.
I once went on a trip with my sisters which was so poorly and haphazardly planned, that we ended up reaching our destination country with an unconfirmed hotel booking, headaches, and extremely hot tempers. We ended up wasting half the night looking for a vacant hotel near the area.
I am not a fan of staying in hotels at all. The beds and pillows are uncomfortable, and the thought of sleeping in a bed that some perverts could have had an orgy in the night before is not appealing in the least.
From the outside, this cardboard box sure doesn’t look like a very nice place to seek shelter. But one look inside, and you’ll see that the Five-Stars Cardboard Hotel is a luxurious resort, crafted from paper.
The design team of Keung Caputo created four foldable suites, each with a cardboard bed, pillow and intricate cardboard details, cut with lasers and backlit with LEDs.
“The birth of the Homo Spaciens.” That’s how Spanish-based Galactic Suite Ltd. describes its vision of a hotel in space, one that enables guests to literally go around the world in just 80 minutes and see 15 sunrises and sunsets in a day, and of course marvel at a breathtaking view of our planet.
