6 State-of-the-Art Hotels Here and Abroad

Take a peek into these must-visit suites with interiors beyond any hostel you've been to


When it comes to traveling, lodging usually takes a backseat because a lot of us tend to scrimp on accommodations and splurge on visiting tourists spots. Believe it or not, staying in a beautiful hotel can be a unique experience on it's own, too—especially if you find the right place. To help you plan the itinerary of your next trip, we've listed down a few places that don't just offer ordinary sleeping spaces but also impressive interiors and art collections you can check out: 


The Henry Hotel

The Henry Hotel in Cebu has no shortage of art. Each room is furnished with contemporary pieces in almost every corner. Apart from sculptures of different sizes, murals painted by Mark Luzon also adorn the hotel in its most imaginative spaces. Guests can choose to book a room based on their artistic preferences, too.

Hotel Mono

There's nothing quite like Hotel Mono's loft rooms where one gets to marvel at modern minimalist decor in its full glory—plus, the hotel's facade is well-maintained and painted in the same monochromatic scheme to match the interiors. While most might find black and white a little boring, it is a welcome sight from the colorful cityscape of Singapore.

H2O Manila

If an extensive art collection doesn't suit your taste, perhaps the thematic rooms of H2O Manila is more up your alley. The Aqua Supreme rooms are instant favorites as these are completed with aquariums that make you feel as if you're sleeping underwater. It's safe to say that the only thing you're missing is a mermaid tail and you will surely be a part of their world.

Art'otel Berlin

Whether you feel like looking at pop art or neo-expressionist pieces all day, Art'otel Berlin has got you covered. They have two branches in the city which you can choose from, depending on the art movement that makes your heart skip a beat. Art'otel Berlin-Kuddam has a lot of signed prints by Andy Warhol while Art'otel Berlin-Mitte is a 17th Century Rococo building filled with the works of Georg Baselitz.

Hotel Max

Hotel Max in Seattle is hard to ignore for its witty all caps in-your-face typography murals around the hotel. Guests flock to this spot to visit the space dedicated to Indie Pop Rock label Sub Pop Record which played a significant role in Seattle's indie record scene. Each guest room door is adorned with a large-scale black and white photograph by Charles Peterson, whose work defined the aesthetic of Sub Pop Record's record covers in the '70s and '80s.

Kirkenes Snowhotel

Despite its name, Kirkenes Snowhotel in Norway is open all summer and they offer guests cabins inspired by the traditional Norwegian houses. These Gamme-inspired rooms have wide glass windows that invite natural light into the cabin. If you're lucky, you might even catch reindeers that love to pay a visit to the place. As winter season comes, the hotel starts building igloos which guests can rent out, too—every unit is carved with intricate art that changes every year.
