For a truly memorable stay, break free from hotel chains and check into one of these unusual hotels. 

Propeller Island, Berlin, Germany

7 of 17

Lars Stroschen is the German artist behind this quizzically named Berlin hotel, where each room is stranger than the next—and offers amenities you never knew you needed. One room has a bath in a giant plastic bag; another uses an oversize guillotine to divide a king bed into two singles. There’s a jauntily painted prison cell, a room with coffin beds, and a suite completely decorated in mirror fragments. One of the most requested is an apparently ordinary bedroom. It’s unremarkable except for the fact that it’s completely upside down: all furniture is suspended from above, except for a sunken Murphy bed, a table, a couch, and a TV, which all fold out from the smooth floor. propeller-island.com; single room from $77.
