Quirky and Instagrammable Hotel for Young Travelers

Hotel Not Hotel, as the name suggests, is not your typical hotel.

Instead of offering traditional spaces, their accommodations are inside a museum-like space, with art-filled communal areas and eccentric rooms.

From a room behind a bookshelf to a room inside what used to be a tram, there is a lot of assortments and quirkiness that you can find inside this property.

They offer a common space, where you will be able to meet other travelers or just relax after a long day visiting the city.

There are not many available facilities in the hotel, except for their well-known bar – Kevin Bacon. The bar is open for guests and locals alike. They serve amazing Thai food, which many guests raving about it, as well as the usual cocktails and drinks.

The staff is friendly and helpful, and guests speak highly of those who they’ve interacted with inside the hotel.

Regarding the location, the Hotel Not Hotel is not in the city center. Worry not, you will find a tram station nearby to get to the city center. Around the accommodation, there are plenty of restaurants and shops.

This is a funky and interesting hotel, but its market is leaning towards a younger demographic who are adventurous and Instagram-loving. Rather than more mature travelers who would prefer comfort over aesthetics.

Their rooms are cute and definitely picturesque, something that influencers may definitely look forward to.

Good to know: They serve amazing Thai Food at the hotel's bar and restaurant, Kevin Bacon. Tons of Instagram-friendly spots inside the hotel.
