Berlin's flying hotel bed

At the Propeller Island City Lodge in Berlin, there’s a bed with a difference. Their “flying” bed can be found in one of the hotel’s many themed rooms.   The king size wooden bed is in fact suspended from the roof but a floor with a 15-degree incline helps to complete the illusion, as does other furniture in the room which has been specially adapted to take the slope  into account. On the ceiling are painted the words ‘Distorted Room’. Other rooms at the hotel are similarly unusual, with beds ‘under the floorboards’, coffin beds and a bed surrounded by mirrored kaleidoscope walls.

    Interesting idea. I wonder whether people will find it cool to begin with but the novelty will wear off after a while?

    I just don’t ‘get’ it. Why would someone want to sleep in something like a Star Trek set? I guess the arty-farty types might for a while until, as Adi says, the novelty wears off.

    Imagine having a drink or two too many and trying to get orientated in that place. Nope, I wouldn’t fancy this at all.

    Coffin beds???? That is beyond creepy. Who would want to sleep in a coffin! I live in a city with the largest mall in Canada, and they have a themed hotel that guests seem to love, but they arent my thing. I prefer trendy or traditional.

  4. Kay says:

    I agree, Kendal. I don’t think that themed places would do much for me either. I also like trendy (such as the Hard Rock Hotel in Pattaya) or traditional (such as the E&O in Penang).

    BTW, French actress often slept in a coffin as she claimed it helped her to understand her many tragic roles. (See Wiki)

    Sounds, erm interesting.
    Have you looked at the hotel fox in Copenhagen ? That is similarly wacky inidvidual design for each room. Not quite extreme sounding as this one though.

    Cool Idea!

    Interesting to note about french actors. I did not know. Makes sense, but still creepy to me. I will stick to my king bed with Egyptian cotton sheets.

  8. Kay says:

    D’oh! I made a mistake in my posting and forgot to include the name of who I was on about. It was Sarah Bernhardt, of course, not French actors in general.

  9. Kendal H says:

    Ohhh, makes sense. It is still very eerie to me!

  10. Has anyone actually slept in a bed like this or anything similar to it?

    weird to say the least but i suppose an experience for one night!

    Suppose it is something equally as unique as the Ice Hotel in Sweden, i always think that would be cool (quite literally) to do for one night but not sure whether you could survive comfortably for any longer. Has anyone had the opportunity to stay in the Ice Hotel and if so what was it like would you recommend?

    I have never seen something like this before. I am not sure if I would want to stay there. It reminds me of something form Alice in Wonderland.
