Riad Riad Palais Sebban, Marrakech
The Riad is a traditional Moroccan palace, the main feature of which is the courtyard, where the garden and the pool are located (sometimes with a fountain). This form of the device at home allowed rich people to hide their privacy from prying eyes, and also protected them from the heat and gave them precious coolness. Explore Moroccan exotic best of all in the elegant Riad Palais Sebban. It occupies a building of the 19th century and combines elements of Moroccan and Andalusian architecture: covered galleries with carved columns, walls decorated with colorful mosaics and luxurious interiors of the rooms – here you will definitely feel like a noble person. Treat yourself to an oriental massage in the hotel’s hammam and go for a walk through the maze of old town streets. Do not forget to look at the central square of Djema El Fna, where snake charmers coexist with merchants of spices, carpets and leather goods – there you covered galleries with carved things!

Botel CPH Living, Copenhagen
The Scandinavian climate makes the Nordic countries not a very attractive destination during the cold season, but in summer there is a pleasant coolness, and the probability of rain decreases from an alarming 100 to 50 percent. You can admire the restrained beauty of the Copenhagen canals day and night – for this you need to stay in a botel – hotel on the water. Booking.com users recommend the stylish CPH Living. Each room offers panoramic windows to the floor, Danish dishes are served here for breakfast, and free tea and coffee are available throughout the day. If you are lucky with the weather, on sunny days you can even sunbathe on the terrace of the upper deck. By the way, quite near is a new architectural landmark of the city – an amazing drawbridge with masts Cirkelbroën, like a sailboat.

To cover them all, live in The Hat Madrid, not far from the bohemian La Latina district. Thanks to a combination of reasonable prices and designer interiors, this hostel can easily be categorized as poshtelov (from the English. Posh – “luxurious, fashionable”). There are both common and private rooms, as well as a rooftop bar where locals like to drop by. In the medieval streets nearby you will find numerous tapas bars and the famous Rastro flea market.
Motor home Les Roulottes de la Ferme de l’Autruche Dromoise, France
Hotel complex Les Roulottes de la Ferme de l’Autruche Dromoise difficult to call. In fact, these are two wooden motor homes in an ostrich farm in southeastern France. For a long vacation, this place is hardly suitable, but if you are in search of directions for a gastronomic weekend in nature, you will not find a better option! The farm specializes in the production of meat, so be prepared for an abundance of sausages, steaks and pies, and for breakfast, guests are offered an omelet – of course, from ostrich eggs.
Ryokan Yoshimatsu, Japan
Going to the other end of the world, we not only want to get acquainted with a new culture, but also to feel it from the inside. A night in a ryokan, a traditional Japanese hotel, will not only give you an unforgettable experience, but also help you to better understand the essence of Japanese culture. Located on the hot thermal springs of onsen, the Yoshimatsu Ryokan differs from the European hotels we are used to not only in interiors (this one is decorated in sukiyadzukuri style), but also in an atmosphere of tranquility and harmony that is carefully maintained by hotel staff. Get ready for complete relaxation against the background of real exotic: on the floor – tatami, in the closet – kimono, in the bamboo grove hidden hot baths, and the windows of the hotel overlooking Mount Fuji and Lake Asi.
