There is hardly any person that does not like to travel. Seeing new places and exploring territories is always thrilling and inspirational. However, while most people prefer to stay at comfortable hotels, some are desperately looking for adventure. For those who cannot imagine themselves living in an ordinary hotel room, we present this list of the 5 most unusual hotels in the world.
Faralda Crane Hotel – Amsterdam
This hotel is located in a rather unusual place – a former construction crane in Amsterdam port. This 50-meter high crane was built in 1967, but soon after it began to crumble and its owners made a decision to take it down. This is when Dutch architects stepped in and turned this crane into one of the most unusual hotels in the world. Faralda Crane offers its visitors tree lux apartments – at 30, 40, and 45 meters height. Every room has a unique design and all necessary accommodations including air conditioning, Wi-Fi, free mini-bar, and a big bath. From each room visitors can enjoy a magnificent city view. Due to the fact that crane cabin can rotate, the view can be changed if visitors ask for it.

If previous hotel was located up high from the ground, this one can be found underwater. Quite unusual, isn’t it? Located near Fiji, on Poseidon Island, this hotel offers 25 comfortable suits for most demanding travelers. One of these rooms is a stylized Captain Nemo’s boat replica. All other hotel rooms are made in a shape of little submarines that can float in case of an emergency. The most amazing thing about these rooms though is that you can observe the underwater world just by clicking on a button. This button turns on a light that attracts all fish that lives there.
