Floating Hotels and more unusual accommodation

Thursday, April 11th, 2013

Do you want to break up the monotony of hotel life with something a little bit different? We may just have something for you…

Sure the room of your favourite hotel has a beautiful view, the staff are friendly and cater to your fanciful whims of breakfast in bed, but surely these hotels that we all flock to year after year, beautiful as some may be, are lacking that bit of adventure that holidays are all about? For example, the Ritz is grand and all, but does it float? Is it covered in snow? No, but below we bring you some examples of the most wonderfully unusual hotels that are available to book today.

Amstel Botel (Amsterdam)
Now the Amstel Botel is not only a winner with its adoption of the Botel moniker but really, if you’re looking at getting in to the heart of Amsterdam for your stay, then look no further. You’ll be spending your nights floating atop the IJ Lake and with a water view you’ll be enjoying spectacular views out onto the city of Amsterdam – night time viewings are recommended!

Disney’s Hotel Cheyenne, Chessy (Paris)
Next up, Cowboy! Haven’t you always wanted to shed your office clothes, don a Cowboy hat and mosey on down to the Wild West? Of course you have, and where better to indulge your inner fantasies than at Disneyland Paris with a stay in the Hotel Chessy? Expect a horse shoe on the door on arrival, all you can eat at the Chuck Wagon Cafe, a Nevada game arcade for the kids and let’s not forget the music: country and western at the Red Garter Saloon. This one is great for families and kids of all ages!

Hotel Boathotel Fortuna (Budapest)
The Hotel Boathotel Fortuna in Budapest struts its stuff on the Danube river, with views on either side looking out on to the city and Margaret island, centrally located this Botel is perfect for those hoping to take in the atmosphere afforded by this enchanting city. Get ready for some wonderful Hungarian cuisine while you’re there!

Hotel Snow Village Canada (Montreal)
Each year the Hotel Snow Village in Montreal is built up under the theme of a new city, currently the rooms of the Snow Village take their theme from New York, with rooms decorated to look like the New York Zoo and other prominent tourist attractions. On site you’ll find an ice bar, a Pommery ice restaurant and even an ice chapel for the perfect white wedding. The entire hotel and all of its features are built from snow and ice, with elegant sculptures, heated ice rooms and a captivating ambience, this is truly a hotel for the adventurous!
