Everyone loves a great vacation: rest, relaxation abd incredible places to visit. But what if leaving your hotel wouldn’t be neccesary? Optional, yes; but, neccesary? Enjoying the scenery, exploring the culture or partying like an animal – I guess everyone has their favorite way ot spending time. However, no matter of taste, luxurious comfort while on vacation is a must. Converted hotels is another growing trend: buildings that were once used as something completely different, now renovated and refurbished as a hotel. Living inside a piece of histoy sounds interesting, and these unconventional buildings have been wonderfully converted while also retaining the spirit of the original structure. Here are the 15 most unique converted hotels out there.
