I have thought that the Dasparkhotel is chic, different and interesting for awhile now--but realized I had never posted about it. The rooms, a sort of city chic meets forest cabin, were designed by Andreas Strauss in Otteneheim Germany near the Danube river. Made from old concrete drain pipes that have been repurposed, the accommodation is simple and modern with full headroom, double bed, storage, light, power, woolly blanket and light cotton sleeping bag. For the other hotel amenities like toilets, showers, minibar, cafe, etc--patrons must visit the surrounding public space which affords these luxuries.
Because of this pod network disconnected from a hotel in the traditional sense, the rooms are on a "pay as you wish" system. A night in Dasparkhotel costs just as much as you can afford or want to pay. Not bad if you are trapsing Europe and looking for something out of the ordinary. Plan your stay accordingly, because the Dasparkhotel is only open from May through October, reservations can be made here.
