12 cool and unusual hotels in France – from Paris to Bordeaux
France is known worldwide thanks to a lot of things — high fashion, rich history and culture and great cuisine. However, France, this elegant lady with an impeccable reputation, has in its appearance exciting features; sometimes even seeming a bit insane. Forget the trendy five-star Paris hotels ; today we will tell you about the 12 modern, artsy, funny, and sometimes just downright weird hotels of France. But remaining comfortable and stylish.
La Villa Hamster, Nantes
Literally, the name of this hotel translates to “Hamster Villa”. Now, if you’ve ever longingly stared at a cage of your hamster, dreaming, as he, to run in the wheel and drink from the feeder bolted to the cage wall, then this hotel is exactly designed for you. La Villa Hamster room is made in the form of cells of hamster — beds in the form of haystacks, forged wheels in the interior, reminiscent of those that run by hamsters. In the lobby of this wheel even works. To get to bed, need to crawl through the pipe, and in the bathroom you have a choice between a regular toilet or a tray of wood chips. In my opinion, this is overkill.
Hotel Cube, Paris
The hotel Cube has been svetasvara due to its reception area, made in the form of a large glass cube that reminds me of the ice hotels and frosty the Arctic. Actually, among the 41 rooms of the hotel, really is an ice room, which is called “The Ice Cube Room by Grey Goose”. Here, when the air temperature is -10 C, you can sleep on ice beds covered with animal skins. The rest of the building is decorated in relaxing shades of blue and purple.
