Extraordinary accommodation in France - most original and unusual hotels

Bastia France is a country where everything that is non-trivial and unusual is valued. It is no wonder that on its territory, there are a huge number of unusual hotels, which break all stereotypes regarding comfortable accommodation. One of such places is the Hotel La Villa Hamster in Nantes. In French, the name means "hamster's villa". In this hotel, each guest can feel like a real hamster; the beds are decorated in the form of a haystack, and to get on them you need to crawl through the pipe. In addition, in each room there is a built-in wheel, which resembles what is installed in the cages for these animals. Another unusual hotel is in Mont Blanc in the south of France. Tourists are invited to rent an inflatable ball-tent with transparent walls and enjoy the magical views.

The concept of the unforgettable design was developed by famed Philippe Starck. The hotel offers somewhat gloomy guest rooms with walls made of foamed concrete and decorated with colorful graffiti. Minimalism is the main concept of furnishing. Creative lamps that look like masks of superheroes, big mirrors on the walls and modern electronics – such a setting is perfect for young and active travelers. Visitors may be happy to find out that there is a quality beer restaurant at the hotel.
Nice Excelsior Chateaux & Hotels Collection, Nice The thematic Nice Excelsior Chateaux & Hotels Collection is also easy to distinguish from other hotels. It is open in a beautiful old building with a magnificently decorated façade. The design of the hotel is inspired by quite a logical and very understandable theme for all tourists – traveling. Guest rooms of the hotel are decorated with very unusual wall drawings that imitate old envelopes and postcards. Old suitcases and chests are the most creative elements of the décor. They are used to replace many standard furniture pieces and even floor pots for flowers. The design of public areas is no less unforgettable – travel inspired frescos and drawings are added not only to walls but even to the marble floor. Travelers, who seek peaceful and secluded atmosphere, will enjoy the charming inner yard with a spacious terrace and a small pond.

Photo of HI Hôtel Eco Spa & Beach, Nice HI Hôtel Eco Spa & Beach, Nice HI Hôtel Eco Spa & Beach is quite an interesting and unusual place. Creative approach to all details is very notable in this high-class hotel, and the colorful and stylish design is no exception. All rooms of the hotel are made in an unusual style. Each room has a spacious bathroom with a panoramic window and striking views of the seaside. The design of the hotel was developed by Matali Crasset, who is well-known for her non-standard approach and brave solutions. It is also important to mention that HI Hôtel is an environment-friendly hotel, so natural and eco-friendly materials are used in both guest rooms and public spaces. The hotel’s restaurant offers meals made exclusively of organic products delivered from local farms. Without a doubt, the legendary Happy bar is the loudest place in the hotel as it is a regular venue for performances of different music bands and DJs.
Photo of Hôtel Ellington, Nice Ellington, Nice While searching for a hotel in Nice, pay attention to the high-class Ellington . The opening of the hotel took place nearly a hundred years ago, so the unique thematic hotel is located in the heart of the city. The creative design of Ellington was inspired by jazz musician Duke Ellington, so there’s no wonder why old photographs of musicians and jazz related accessories can be seen everywhere. The unusual hotel has kept its signature retro design. In the cozy lounge of Ellington, visitors will still find the old fireplace and an interesting collection of thematic artifacts nearby. The most “jazz” hotel in Nice also has a charming inner yard with the ancient stone statue of Roman god Mercurius being its main decoration.
Hotel Particulier, Paris The choice of hotels in Paris is extensive and, of course, there are some unique ones that are well-known to travelers who enjoy staying in unusual places. Hotel Particulier is one of these special places. The small hotel has only five guest rooms and is open in a beautiful old mansion. The design of the hotel was developed by famous designer Oscar Comtet who collaborated with outstanding French photographers, artists, and sculptors. The main aim of the designer was very simple – all guest rooms and public areas should look as much different as possible.
Villa La Tour, Nice The comfortable Villa La Tour has a big advantage – it’s the only hotel that is open in the Old Town. The hotel is open in the building of a former 18th-century monastery. Charming guest rooms of Villa La Tour are made in an inimitable romantic style in accordance with traditions of the past. Pillows with skillful embroidery in the shape of hearts, beds with high headboards and a sheer canopy, many flowers and small retro style lamps – the décor of the hotel is very thoughtful and harmonious. All guest rooms are unique and offer panoramic views of the historic landmarks of the city.
