Extraordinary accommodation in Netherlands - most original and unusual hotels

The Netherlands seems to be created for those who love everything unusual and non-trivial. Therefore, there is a huge number of uncommon hotels that can break any stereotypes about the rules of accommodation. In Amsterdam, a large number of water channels are laid, so there are several floating hotels. Bootel that is located in a huge liner, offers tourists 175 different rooms at fairly democratic prices. Another ship, Avanti, has only a couple of rooms. The owners live right there, in the neighboring premises with the guests. This place is the best way to immerse yourself in the way of life of a real Dutchman. Fans of new sensations and the sweetish flavor of Dutch freedom can go to The Hemp Hotel. The interiors are made in the style of the eastern countries growing cannabis - Afghanistan, India, Tibet. These premises encourage to dive in thoughts and philosophical reflections. The bar of this hotel offers hemp beer, and hemp pancakes are served for breakfast.

They are really suitable for storing wine and even have a subtle wine aroma.
