✈Worldwide Wednesdays:Unique Hotels - Propeller Island City Lodge, GERMANY

Where shall we travel to today?....

Propeller Island City Lodge, GERMANY

Unique hotels which offer one-of-a-kind rooms seems to be getting more and more popular as there are many popping up all over.  We will try to feature as many as we can, starting with the Propeller Island City Lodge.

Proppeller Island City Lodge in Berlin, Germany is a very unique hotel and a Art Designers dream.
All rooms and objects were created by the German artist Lars Stroschen. It is like "living in a work of art". There are 30+ rooms and each one unique and individual as the next.
All furnishings and objects are custom-made or hand-built which means none can be found anywhere else in the world.  It's almost like living in a museum with guest accomodations.  The rooms are designed and constructed without compromise, varying from the tame to the extreme, and provides the opportunity to more or less alter your perspective of reality - according to your taste and sense of adventure.

There is some price to be paid for all this creativity and uniqueness.   Some of the materials are alot more 'delicate' because of this art of a hotel.  The plexiglass is easily scratched, as are the dark and intense wall colours when you slide your bags along them - just to name a few.  Hence, great care in the movement throughout the hotel to protect and preserve it's creativeness is always greatly appreciated.  It also has its own ambience and music that can be listened to throughout the rooms.

Let your imagination wild... and there just might be a room for that!

The "Flying Bed" Room
A room with a slanted floor and a double bed which seems to levitate off the ground. The wardrobe comes out of the wall, but table and chair have got to stay straight! In the rustic bathroom of natural stone you will find eggplant-coloured slate.

The "Therapy" Room
This entirely white room can be darkened and illuminated at your desire with a variety of artifical lamps. A mirror located above the bed allows you to see yourself 'in another light' - spectrally therapeutic and very spectacular! Windows and wasbasin are hidden behind soft white plush.

The "Chicken Curry" Room
The Chicken Curry Room possesses an India-inspired appeal. An exceptionally bright and empty room which could also be utilised as a photographer's studio or shooting location with its gigantic lighting boxes and roll-out backdrops. Gentle pink walls compensates the chromatic tints of the brilliantly luminous neon tubes (...with soft-light as well!). The bed is located in the floor, beneath a 'garage gate'.

The "Nightlight" Room
The wild brush strokes of abstractly painted murals surround and adorn the mirrored aperture to the goings-on next door - an opened curtain might just invite you to have a look! The bathroom is a gigantic plastic bag - a real sensation!

The "Two Lions" Room
Dual cages, situated in the centre of this spacious menagerie, rest on stilts measuring 1.5 meters tall and await applause from the neighbouring guest(s). Your curtain presides over what your audience sees and what not! The roomy bathroom has a toilet that thrones atop a tower and permits peeks into the golden bathtub. In the cages kids love to sleep, otherwise the room is for two.

The "Medi-Terra" Room
A roughly hewn stone wall with vivid azure blue colouring.  The room is rather cozy and offers space only for one person. The bed has been carpentered from palisade wood. Rustic comfort with southerly style among flower-photos.

The "Nudes" Room
The sandstone bathroom has been coloured with such a powerful blue and in such a wonderful fashion that it simply could not be hidden behind walls! Lilac-toned walls and velvet curtains capture your fancy well into the sweetness of slumber...

The "Speicher" Room
Akin to a barn, this room is constructed from the ages-old rafters of the house. A hidden ladder leads up to the berth, from which one can survey the pillow fortress made of potato sacks packed with foam rubber. Very pleasant earth tones.

The "Space-Cube" Room
Shall we sleep together or in separate beds? You can decide at the last moment and crank the illuminated barrier between the bed halves up or down. The bed is a monolith and dispenses a mystically blue light with its walls of coloured glass. Not exclusively for eternal quarrelers! Whether homo, hetero or bi, happy here together, don't ask "why"!

The "Mirror" Room
Definitely one of City Lodge's highlights. The diamand-shaped room is completely laid out with mirrors and gives you the impression of living in a kaleidoscope. Caution: Very sexy!

The "Freedom" Room
A friendly prison cell with a hole in the wall. The toilet is in the room, just like we know it should be! What's different: You really WANT to stay here, it's extremely comfortable. Freedom awaits on the balcony with a parasol.

The "Temple" Room
Sleep in a silver temple beneath the resplendent heavenly spheres. The open bed has a terraced structure. Asian flair with aged masonry.

More Rooms....

The Forest Room
Dawn's early light smiles on glistening magenta and rewards you with an unbelievable chromatic experience at the break of day. The bathroom has been done in citrus yellow. T-H-E single room for rangers, with a cuddy cave below the woodpile! An earthly ladder takes you there...

The Electric Wallpapers Room
A recommendation for first-time visitors wanting to try out what City Lodge is all about. This straightforward accomodation, which is especially suited for longer stays due to its fully equipped kitchen. Lots of daylight. The most "normal" quarterings in our City Lodge.

The Gruft Room
In both coffins you can even slumber beneath closed lids! Exclusively connoisseur room for all those "Nosferatus" who cannot wait for that which awaits us all. Whosoever has second thoughts can creep to the bedplace below, safe within the labyrinth. Not only a unique experience for Gothic exquisite location on top of that!

The Padded Cell Room
From top to bottom and all around the bed, everything is upholstered with green leather. A kingly or queenly room where one can hear his own heart beat when the spirit grows weary. Small but exquisite, and undeniably noble on top of that!
