World’s Most Exclusive Hotel Room
The Hôtel Everland (Paris) has a grand total of one room. It is bookable 60 days in advance – no more, and when the end of December 2008 comes, it will be not be bookable at all. The Swiss Everland company installed this contemporary hotel pod suite on the roof of the Palais de Tokyo, overlooking the Seine, in October 2007. It has sweeping views of the Eiffel Tower and is one of those once-in-a-lifetime experiences. It will be removed at the end of December.
The pod room contains a bathroom, a king-size bed and a lounge area with a huge window. The mini-bar is fully stocked and included in the price, breakfast is delivered to the door and a music collection is at ones disposal.
In order to afford this unique experience to the greatest number of people, the pod suite is not bookable for multiple night stays. Pod suite price per night: 333€ (Sun., Tue., Wed.); 444€ (Thu., Fri., Sat.). Not bookable for any Monday.
From the booking web site comes this warning: “Thank you for your understanding that booking might be difficult because Hotel Everland has only one room, and many people are trying to book it.” That seems an understatement.
