*Drumrolls* And the world’s most amazing and unusual hotel of 2011 is… the Karosta Prison. This former KGB prison has been previously described as hell on Earth.

  16. Reese says:

    Goodness! The last one took by surprise. But the rest of the hotels are really awesome. I definitely would love to pay visits too. Most especially the eco lodge as it seems quite adventurous. But I wouldn’t spend a night in that prison not even if someone pays me.

  17. Reese says:

    And oh! the hotel in Madrid is really quite exceptional, too. I never even thought such a hotel exists in Madrid.

  25. Court says:

    I would totally do the prison deal. Maybe find myself some ghosts. The Ice Hotel is super cool as well. Went last year. Very interesting experience. If you want to stay in Montreal proper and have a great experience go to Le Saint Sulpice Hotel ( for accomodation. It’s not so much a weird hotel, Montreal doesn’t do much of that, but it will give anyone with a taste for luxury suites exactly what they want. Its location is super, rooms are great, spa to die for…
