Hotel de Vrouwe van Stavoren

A Netherlands hotel where you can sleep inside a wine barrel.  

Using four massive disused wine casks, the Hotel de Vrouwe van Stavoren in the Netherlands has created a unique hotel experience that is equal parts junk recycling and rustic chic.

Each of the four wine barrel rooms at the hotel was made using wooden storage casks that have a volume of over 14,000 liters, more than enough room for the two cozy beds that are placed inside each one. All of the hobbit-like round rooms are also adjoined by a small living room and bathroom that is connected to the barrel from the opposite end of the front door. Despite the boutique nature of the lodgings, the prices tend to be fairly reasonable, ranging from $50 to $150 a night depending on the season.

Most any hotel can provide guests with enough liquor to feel as though they slept inside a bottle of alcohol, but Hotel de Vrouwe van Stavoren may be the only establishment in the world that can make good on the promise.
