In Canada the most unusual places to spend the night. Anticipating charges of bias, specify: not to say that these hotels are unique and that there is no longer such a variety of hotels. But in Canada, an unusual hotel is not only outlandish design, but also extreme conditions, testing yourself, and due to the immense size and vastness of the canadian population almost polucheloveka per square kilometer, and many opportunities to fall out of the normal rhythm of life, to step outside of your comfort zone and to be alone with his thoughts.

Notel Haven. An unusual hotel in Helsinki

We walked around the centre and we were attracted by its facade c classic and elegant French balconies and a very modern roof-the attic of one building located on the square in Bergs Bazaar.
