Sweden has some of the most unique accommodations in the world. We have gathered six favourites from our region, all very different when it comes to design, luxury and originality.

1) Hotel with a nautical history
Inspired by Umeås long history as an important seafaring centre, Stora hotellet offers unique rooms that run from spacious suites to compact cabins. In the building you will also find a restaurant, bar, library and conference rooms. www.storahotelletumea.se

2) The school that became a hotel
The former school building is now transformed into a beautiful quality hotel with high 4-star standard in central Umeå. Elite Hotel Mimer offers unique rooms with proper ceiling height, spectacular restaurant and cozy relaxation area. www.elite.se

3) Live like a bird
The feeling of being free as a bird and soar high above the ground has fascinated mankind throughout the ages. At Granö Beckasin you can experience how it feels to live like a bird in tree houses known as bird nests. www.granobeckasin.com

4) Fall asleep to the sound of the sea
Lotshuset is really something out of the ordinary. A pilot house from the 1800’s located in the old fishing village of Järnäsklubb. Beautiful decorated rooms with views over the great big sea. www.lotshuset.se

5) The real Prison Break
Hotel Gamla Fängelset sure is one of the slightly different accommodations in our destination. Here guest sleeps in prison cells. www.hotellgf.se
