kind quickie: the urban hotel
Now here’s an exciting idea – it’s called The Urban Hotel. It doesn’t exist yet, but designers Lo Li-Te, Tai-Yen Lee, Cheng-Yu, Tsai Zong-Huei & Hsu Song-Jung Chen have come up with a pretty brilliant idea for the hotel of the future. It’s powered by solar energy and features rainwater recycling.
Also, each room comes with a bike. Guests would be able to use the bike to get around or as an exercise bike that stores kinetic energy to power small gadgets and lights in the hotel room. The bike would create energy savings that could be applied to the room rental fee, so by saving energy, you’d be saving money too. I love that!
What do you think, is this the hotel of the future? What great, beautiful eco hotels have you been to that we all need to know about?
