The De Vrouwe van Stavoren Hotel in Northern Holland is constructed from four salvaged wine casks from Switzerland. Formerly filled with 14,500 liters of Beaujolais wine, each cask now holds a modest two-person room with standard amenities.

Visitors from all around the world have traveled to the quaint northern port town of Stavoren to stay in one of these cozy, upcycled rooms. Adorned by wood panels, these quaint rooms have two narrow beds, a t.v., radio shower and small bathroom.

More affordable than an ice hotel, general rates begin at 74-119 Euros a night with discounts of up to 75% off depending on season. If you go in the wintertime, a wine cask room can be as low as 18 Euros a night. Breakfast is included and best of all, you can even bring your dog.
