    Funky

    by

    This hotel was brought to my attention by robertgaz . So Robert, I hope you come and check out this place yourself one day :)

    If you're looking to stay in some extraordinary place, stay at the Propeller Lodge. The rooms are individually designed. E.g. there's a mirror room or a room completely in orange. Not quite sure what a Feng Shui Master would have to say...

    I didn't stay here myself though

    An extra-ordinary "hotel"?

    by

    You have to check out the rooms online. There are 30 rooms all completely different. All created by the German artist Lars Stroschen. The rooms vary from unusual to really bizarre. It depends on your taste and your sense of adventure. The room with the voyeur window is not for everyone. Nor is the coffin room.

    We stayed in the Space-Cube room. It had a blue translucent wall for the bathroom, and black rubber shower curtain. Our bed had a crank next to it to lower an illuminated light panel that would separate the bed down the middle...incase you got tired of your travelling companion. You also have the option of listening to "the artists" music in your rooms.

    In the morning after checkout you can get a tour of the rooms. The temple room looked the most comfortable. Propeller Island could be a really fun place to stay with kids. So many buttons and things to push in different rooms. Really interactive experience.

    The dining area was a jungle theme with the sound of birds and rain.

    It was not the most comfortable place to stay. Felt more like a "guys" project. Needed a feminine touch of warmth. The beds were hard and pillows and blankets minimal. but an experience!

    Unique Quality: If you have any questions, reception is only open from 8:00 till 12:00 a.m. +49 - (0)30 - 891 90 16.

    Directions: From Station Zoo. Take Bus 110, 119, 129, 219 to Leninerer Platz

    PROPELLER ISLAND CITY LODGE...

    by

    PROPELLER ISLAND CITY LODGE
    www.propeller-island.net4.com
    propeller-island@net4.com
    Paulsbornerstrasse 10, 10709 Berlin Tel: 893 25 33, Fax: 891 87 20 .
    All rooms 140 DM per night. Same price for one or two persons. No Credit cards.
    If you are looking for something really different, the rooms in this converted apartment are pretty wild. Artist and musician Lars Stroschen has created each chamber as a sleeping experience from the Crystal Maze-type 'Symbol room' to the Toontown fantasy of the 'Burgzimmer'. Guests can prepare their own meals in the equally wacky kitchens or, if booked in advance, there is an 'aphrodisiac menu'(!) dinner available which will be specially cooked for you. Ideal for two couples travelling together as each pair of rooms shares a bathroom/WC and kitchen which is pretty much self-contained. There is no TV or phone in the rooms to disturb your enjoyment and the owner requires cash payment in advance as well as DM100 key deposit.
    In the photo you can see the 'Castle Room'. Take a look in the web page for the others. They are amazing!

a hotel or art exhibit? Propeller Island

by cup0joe

I have to list this twice. It's such an unusual place. It's a hotel OR It's also an art exhibit.

It depends on your taste and your sense of adventure. The room with the voyeur window is not for everyone. Nor is the coffin room.

retro soviet style hotels in Berlin?

by seatpants

I will be in Berlin May 16th for 3 days and once read somewhere that there are/is a hotel in Berlin that has been remodeled/restored to its former soviet self. If anyone has any tips on bizzare hotels in Berlin please let me know.
I aslo need to to get to Venice or close by, should I fly, take a train, or in interesting option I read about was flying to Ljubljana and then taking a train from there!
Any personal info will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Re: Re: retro soviet style hotels in Berlin?

Thanks for the links. I found the propellers Island site really interseting. If only in Berlin for three days is it worth seeing Spandau? What else can you suggest to see or do whilst in Berlin?

Have you been to Ljubljana?
Thanks again

Re: Re: retro soviet style hotels in Berlin?

3 days is not much time for Berlin.
I wouldn't place Spandau high on the list. Potsdam is definitly more interesting.
I would recommend to start your first visit in Berlin with a walking tour, e.g.
http://www.brewersberlin.de
Gives you a nice overview on this huge and complex city and some ideas what to do in the next days (and visits).

Otherwise it depends really what your interests are in. For me e.g. the first computer (the Z1) was a must
http://www.dtmb.de/Aktuelles/Sonderausstellungen/Zuse_Ausstellung/index_en.html
Others are more impressed by the Altar of Zeus (and other exhibits) of the Pergamon Museum
http://www.smb.spk-berlin.de/smb/en/sammlungen/details.php?objectId=3

If you're into modern (last 150 years) architecture you can spend weeks in Berlin.

Here a nice (but large) foto gallery of Berlin

flies from Berlin-Schönefeld to Ljubljana.

Re: Re: retro soviet style hotels in Berlin?

by sabsi

I tried google for a sovjet style hotel but couldn't find one.

I'd go for propeller island if you are searching for something bizarre. if you want something "designy" you could check out Hotel Bleibtreu (http://www.bleibtreu.com) which is very nice but not exactly cheap!

Enjoy Berlin!
