Hotel Mil Estrelles
Time Out says
'We don't let the ceiling or the walls stop us from enjoying the stars, without forgetting the intimacy essential for a romantic night with your partner'
'We don't let the ceiling or the walls stop us from enjoying the stars; and we don't forget the intimacy essential for a romantic night with your partner', so says the website of Hotel Mil Estrelles. Their formula is the following: sleep in a sphere-shaped bedroom from which you can see, at all times, the open sky. The rooms are actually inflatable bubbles that stand about 3m high and 4m wide, and are made of recycled materials. And don't worry about the cold (or the heat): this particular hotel room has a silent system of ventilation and heating. As well, of course, as a shower and toilet. The man behind the bubble is French designer Pierre-Stephane Dumas, while the woman who's brought it to Catalonia is Núria Ros, the hotel director. The Mil Estrelles currently has seven different bubbles.
