Most unusual hotels in the world:
Propeller Island (Berlin, Germany)
Propeller Island hotel in Berlin was invented by the German artist Lars Shtroshen. All 30 rooms are the unique, not alike each other separate worlds. You will never guess what is behind the walls. In one room you will be in a gloomy Middle Ages, in another room – the prison cell, in the third one you will feel like in a strange temple, instead of bed you will have to use a coffin, you will see the dwelling where everything is upside down: table, beds and TV sets are fixed to the ceiling, and instead of beds there are open manholes.
Treehotel (Haradse, Sweden)
None of the children's tree houses has not looked so strange: the major Swedish architects made every effort to create a futuristic hotel, embodying the boys' dreams. The hotel has six rooms - six separate hanging on the trees, "bungalows", connected with the ladders. The rooms have strange names: "Cabin", "Nest", "UFO". The most brilliant idea of this project is "Mirror Cube", all walls of which outside are processed with the special covering, so the house reflects the forest, as if dissolved in it.
Hang Nga Guesthouse (Da Lat, Vietnam)
One can consider this hotel (which is also named “crazy house”) as tribute of respect to Antonio Gaudi, who liked to use vegetable motives in his creations. One can also think that Vietnam hotel is the masterpiece of the mentally ill architecture. The building resembles a giant tree with the hollows and spider's web. There is no a direct line in the project.  Each room is devoted to the animal. So, there are rooms of kangaroo, eagle or ant. You should take a room in order not to be frightened of, for example, red sparkling eyes in the room of tiger. It is better to sit at the fire place which is “furnished” into the belly of the kangaroo.
Palacio de Sal (Yuuni, Bolivia)
The hotels of ice “breaks” appear around the whole world. But if is it possible to build the hotel of salt? Yes, of course. The name of the hotel “Salty palace” is not mystification. The hotel of 16 rooms is indeed built of salt. One million of blocks was taken for the construction. The blocks were joined with the help of salty water. Furniture: beds, chairs and even dry sauna were made of the same material. The guests of the hotel and the owner hope, that there will not be rain, which can wash away the hotel.
