The Hotel “Ariau Amazon Towers” (Brazil)
If you are not afraid of heights and don’t mind enjoying the surroundings from the height of bird’s flight, then welcome to this quaint hotel in the Brazilian town of Manaus. Several wooden towers, as if the bird houses, set on the trunks of enormous trees. But to get to your room you will need to walk hanging bridges. Each house is at a height of not less than 60 metres. In addition, the hotel has two swimming pools at the height of four meters above the ground.

So the hotel complex is ideal for those who like to “train” the romance of sleeping under a measured knock of wheels.
In addition, it offers a restaurant, bar, swimming pool and gym.

The Hotel “Celica” (Slovenia, Ljubljana)
One of the most fashionable hostels in Europe. Its uniqueness is that it was built in a former prison. After the Declaration of independence, the prison ceased to exist, and only in 2003 it was converted into a youth hostel.
