Some hotels around the world are achieving surprising world records. From the largest to the oldest, through the most ecological, the coldest, but also the most expensive, here is the list of some "most" different hotels in the four corners of the globe!

The tallest hotel in the world

Higher than the Eiffel Tower, the Gevora hotel in Dubai (United Arab Emirates) rises to 356 meters in height, 75 floors and 528 rooms! It took 10 years of construction for this establishment to emerge. With this hotel, Dubai once again demonstrates that the Emirates are the world's luxury showcase.

The largest (in number of rooms)

In Las Vegas, hotels are numerous… and very large. With over 7000 rooms, the Palazzo Resort Hotel & Casino is the largest in the world. More than a simple hotel that has a spa and a relaxation area with swimming pools, it is a real micro-city: a shopping center, dozens of restaurants, a nightclub, and a casino .

The most expensive hotel to build

It is in Saudi Arabia, in the heart of Mecca, that we find the Royal Clock Tower hotel or Abraj Al-Bait Towers. This five-star establishment, 601 meters high, contains a prayer hall that can accommodate about 10 people. It cost over $ 000 billion to build.

The coldest

We are here a long way from the splendor of Dubai. In Jukkasjarvi, in northern Sweden, the rooms and beds of the Ice Hotel are made of ice and snow, for a temperature in the rooms between -5 and -8 ° C. Thus, no need for ice cubes to enjoy your cocktail in an ice glass.

The hotel at the highest altitude

It is obviously in Nepal that the highest hotel in the world is located in terms of altitude. The Everest View hotel, built on Everest is located almost 4 meters above sea level. This allows you to enjoy breathtaking views of the Himalayas and Sagarmatha National Park. At such an altitude, the establishment is only accessible by helicopter.

The most ecological in the world

The Verde Hotel, located in Cape Town, South Africa, happens to be the greenest in the world. In 2017, it was awarded the “Tourisme Commerce Equitable” label (Fair Trade Tourism-certified business). The hotel has received a lot of green certifications and awards for its ecological involvement.

This translates into the use of solar energy through 220 photovoltaic panels and three wind turbines, regenerative drive elevators, energy efficient LED lights. Regarding water, the hotel uses a gray water recycling system which saves an average of 6000 liters per day. He recycles and compost the food waste that feeds their worm farm and then returns to the ecosystem.

The establishment also has an eco-swimming pool, an outdoor gym, a vegetative roof garden (which acts as a thermal barrier) and vegetable gardens (which use the aquaponics system to allow sustainable food production). Here is a hotel which fits in well with the times by taking care of its environment.
