The Sweetest Suite – Coolest Hotel Suites in the World – Episode 2

the sweetest suite episode 2

As you may already know – I’m running a video series called ‘The Sweetest Suite’ which is a Snapchat search for the coolest hotel rooms in the world. I’m looking for places that are quirky and unique and most importantly memorable. The hotels I select always have something distinctive that makes them stand out and be worthy of potentially being crowned the ‘Sweetest Suite’ in the world…

In case you missed Episode 1 – you can watch it here.
Episode 2 travels from London to Lisbon, to one of the least visited places on the planet – an island on the Equator called Principe.

1) QBIC LONDON CITY HOTEL

This hotel offers a unique concept when it comes to its rooms – rather than suites, their largest room is called a ‘fun room’. Each room has a futuristic cube shaped pod which combines the bathroom and bed into one. It has organic toiletries, chemical-free products, recycled furniture and eco showers to ensure the message is always green.
