Actually, it appears that all fifteen are from the Propeller Island City Lodge, also in Berlin. Many more crazy rooms to see at the website. I love the Upside-Down Room.
A while back Ladysusan turned me on to The Library Hotel in New York, and it is now our mutual dream to spend a night there someday. Based on the Dewey Decimal System, the library has themed rooms like Poetry, Astronomy, and Law arranged by floor category (Literature, Math and Science, General Knowledge, Religion, etc.) And of course, the place is filled with books. I want to stay in Room 800.005, Fairy Tales.
While nice, the rooms themselves actually look a bit generic. I suppose it's the volumes themselves that are supposed to transport you places -- there weren't any pictures of specific themed rooms on the site, but I was hoping for giant skeletons in Dinosaurs, aquariums in Oceanography, piles of gold and moneybags in Money, scales and gavels in Law, heiroglyphic wallpaper and gold fixtures in Ancient History, busts and quills in Classics, that sort of thing. Maybe I should find my own books, and spend my night sleeping in a hall of mirrors, a coffin, or a cartoon instead.
