Caravan for One, Please: Hotel Hüttenpalast in Berlin

How cool is this? The Hotel Hüttenpalast has turned the sprawling first floor of a former vacuum factory into a makeshift indoor campground, where instead of hotel rooms, you reserve your very own old-school caravan for a night. (It’s like the grown-up version of having a tent in your room as a kid.) Each of the little suites on wheels is decorated in a different theme, from the bohemian Kleine Schwester (Little Sister) to the retro, tin-roofed Heartbreaker. Plus, there’s an on-site café and garden with rotating art exhibits. Accommodations start at a wallet-friendly 40 euros a night, making this my hands-down favorite spin on the affordable boutique hotel trend.
