It’s all about keeping that Instagram game strong during your travels these days. And what better way to achieve that, than to check-in to an accommodation with unique architecture and features, right?
Travel booking platform Agoda has curated a list of five new standout hotels based on its design and aesthetics. Inspire your followers to double tap by staying at the following venues.
Reinvented hostel: Steel House in Copenhagen, Denmark
If your idea of a hostel is messy communal areas and seedy streets, well think again. Steel House – formerly home to the Danish Union of Metalworkers – has been transformed into a hostel without losing its unique raw edge.
Accommodation options include private and four or six-bed dormitory rooms. But with its fusion of industrial interiors and soft textures, you won’t be feeling like a budget backpacker.
Located in the trendy part of Copenhagen near Vesterbro, the hostel is close by the Tivoli Gardens. And if you’re looking to bring your OOTD photos elsewhere, the Copenhagen Station – located just five minutes away – open up an endless amount of places to explore. Dorm rates start from DKK 125 (RM81.40) per night.
Conceptual hotel: MACq 01 Hotel in Hobart, Australia
Don’t worry so much about creating a compelling Instagram story at this luxurious hotel that incorporates unforgettable storytelling. Each room is linked to a real character central to Tasmania’s history, including the heroes, villains, explorers, inventors and convicts.
If you need to generate more content for your followers, sign up for the Master Storyteller tour and be guided through the history that decorates the hotel’s hallways and beyond in the nearby Wapping district.
Alternatively, step out on your own to explore the many sights on offer, including Brooke Street Pier, Franklin Wharf and Sullivans Cove – all less than 1km away.
Modern architecture: Park Hyatt in Bangkok, Thailand
Thailand is no stranger to delectable #FoodPorn shots. But if your Instagram feed is all about that great architectural aesthetics, then this hotel is the place to be.
The dramatic, swooping architecture, designed by New York-based firm Yabu Pushelberg, uses art as a focal point. Inside you will find stunning . installations created by Japanese artist Hirotoshi Sawada, which will leave you in awe just as much as the stunning view from the infinity pool that overlooks the bright city lights.
Some of the city’s best attractions – Erawan Shrine, Baiyoke II Tower, Lumphini Park, and Bangkok Art & Culture Centre – are all within 2km of the hotel.
Eco-hotel: 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge in New York City, US
Would checking in to a nature-inspired hotel make for a #LiveAuthentic post? If yes, then this 10-storey eco-conscious waterfront hotel is the perfect setting.
Designed by local artists using native greenery and reclaimed materials, every room has a coffee machine with recyclable pods and mattresses with a hemp blend filling and 100% organic cotton sheets.
And don’t trouble yourself with taking New York’s iconic yellow taxis. Guests have access to a Tesla vehicle for complimentary rides to explore the city.
For a great panoramic shot, the Brooklyn Heights Promenade – about 600m away – offers sweeping views of the Manhattan skyline and the East River.
Hi-tech hotel: YOTEL Orchard Road in Singapore
It doesn’t take a tech whiz to operate social media, but a tech-savvy hotel will surely generate that ultra-modern look and feel on your Instagram.
From self-service check-in, to adjustable Smartbeds, a technowall and Smart TVs, each ‘capsule’ at this swanky accommodation has everything the modern connected traveler needs.
The hotel, created by Yo! founder Simon Woodroffe, draws inspiration from both extremes – Japanese capsule hotels and luxury airline lounges.
