Weird Hotels

This week, TIME Asia published an article about two hotels from Swedish artist Mikael Genberg.

"Stay and Play In Sweden, you can vacation under water--or in a tree" By Max Wooldridge

While it's old news, Genberg's tree top and underwater hotels are still something to talk about.

Wooldridge said this about the Hotel Woodpecker:

" Guests climb up a 13-m ladder to reach the hotel's only room--and that's where they stay, because the ladder is then removed. Choose between a "bohème service," which means you bring your own food and bed linen, or the more comfortable deluxe option, where meals and blankets are hoisted up to you in a basket. There's a kitchen, bedroom, veranda with a hammock and--rest assured--a toilet."

Genberg isn't the only one inventing strange hotels. Tim Pozzi wrote about the world's 10 most original hotels last year in the Guardian.

"Any Special Requests?"
