I was talking to a friend of mine about hotels, and how weird some can be, thanks to google I found this article by Franziska Gutsche on Travelettes.net and I just thought wow! she nailed it! So, this is me being lazy and sharing it exactly like she did.
As far as I’m concerned, hotels ought to ideally fulfill two main conditions: a bed and a roof. Maybe the price ought to be factored in as well. Until not too long ago, I thought that I would rather spend money on exploring the places I traveled in, than on the bed I slept in at night. A hotel, to me, was merely a place to regain my energies for the following day of plans, travels and astonishments.
What changed my mind, was coming across some rather incredible hotels. The astounding capsule hotels in Japan, for example, the prison hotel in Germany or anice hotel in Canada. But my personal top 6 are the ones listed here below (side note for anyone wondering why it’s not a top 5, I simply could not decide)
1) The Igloo village, Finland

Perfect for everyone who always wanted to have an undisturbed view at night without any city lights to observe the universe in its most original version. If you are lucky, you might even see some of the awe-inspiring northern lights.
