New Paris Hotel: View to Kill For

The most totally unique hotel in Paris and one that has to have the finest view is the Hotel Everland, which opened its doors Nov 4, 2007.

This is unlike any hotel in Europe - a traveling Swiss luxury hotel room that is incredibly perched atop the Palais de Tokyo, the contemporary art museum smack across the Seine from the Eiffel Tower.

The Everland is a mobile hotel ('trailer trash' i guess) that has a single room, bathroom and king-size bed, mini-bar and large picture window overlooking the city from its roof-top perch.

It tops the Toyko Palace because during the day it's part of that museum's temporary exhibitions and can be viewed by patrons before it assumes its hotel function at night.

(Only one-night stays are allowed; accommodations for the room are provided by a local luxury hotel; will be in place thru end of 2008: booking info - good luck - www.everland.ch)

The mobile hotel was designed by two eminent Swiss artists for the Swiss Nation Exhibition in 2002 and was later perched on the top of an art museum in Leipzig in 2006. This is the final stop for the mobile hotel.

sorry to burst the bubble, but everland is definitely not 49E/night. from the website:

Prix de la chambre pour une nuit:
dimanche, mardi, mercredi: 333 Euro
jeudi, vendredi, samedi: 444 Euro
Fermé le lundi

Can't say it turns me on. The interior is a bit nausea-inducing, possibly in the way it reminds me of a fantasy dormroom ca. 1971. Or a budget production of "2001, The Musical".

But if you like it, go for it!
