The hotel was named after a novel by the great writer Jules Verne, which in Russian sounds like “Floating island” . The original hotel called L’ile a helice, which literally translated sounds like “the Island with the screw/propeller”. The full title of this small hotel in Berlin: Propeller Island City Lodge. In Russian language the name of the hotel translates as “City house-island with a propeller”. Permanent host is Lars Strachan.
The hotel “Floating island” all rooms are themed, and the design and interior is created by just one person – Lars Strasheim, which I am sure that almost every one of its rooms can influence and even change the consciousness of its inhabitants.
If you often like to perform in front of a mirror much time, then you will love a night spent in the mirror room, called “room for Narcissus”. It looks like a polygonal room decorated entirely with mirrors (!), there is a feeling that you’re in a kaleidoscope. A lot of their own reflections and others, for sure, can drive You crazy.
Also, you can enjoy the feeling that the whole world capsized in dragonmere of the same – Upside Down . The chandelier hangs here on the floor and bed are on the ceiling.

Each cell is designed for 1 person, but there are also counterpart – a place for two people in a very large Suite bath. And believe me cell here isn’t all that interesting. Much nicer wall transparent mirror separating the room from adjacent rooms.
