Travelers are always looking for something different and new to see or experience, whether if it’s an adventure, a place or accommodation, it has to be amazing and unforgettable. Regarding the latter, there is definitely something new and special about the Sala Silver Mine Underground Suite in Sweden.
Sala Silver Mine is situated in the middle of Sweden in the Regional district of Västmanland. It is 120 kilometers from Stockholm and 62 kilometers from Uppsala. It’s the world’s deepest underground hotel and it’s located in silver mine that apparently was closed in 1908. It is believed that the mine has been operational since medieval times but after it was closed it was just a matter of time when this mine would be converted into something else. Today the mine has its own museum, a theater, two dining rooms and asuitethat can accommodate two guests. Although the mine goes 300 meters in depth and almost 20 kilometers in length, people are allowed to sleep on about 155 meters below the surface. That makes this suite the deepest bedroom in the world.
This historic place has a cool and a bit of a dark note. Somewhere in these dark winding galleries and vast caverns, an amazing suite is waiting for you. Its interior is so cleverly designed to match the silver mine surroundings that include underground lakes too. This is the best choice for accommodation for those who want to experience some Bram Stoker’s or H.R. Giger’s atmosphere. The darkdecor is so Goth and the silver details of the furniture are so ahead of time.The past and the future collide and that is resulting in perfect and unique aura offering the guests an unforgettable experience.
Before staying in the apartment, you’ll be guided throughout the silver mine. Make sure you remember all the areas because after you’ll get accommodated you would be left on your own for the night. You’ll definitely get a lot of privacy in yourunderground bedroom because the hotel staff remains in the building above the ground. Additional accommodation above ground in the mining area estate is also available if you change your mind. What’s the downside of the suite? If you have to use the toilet in the middle of the night, you’d have to climb up for 50 meters where the closest toilet is located. Don’t bother to bring your cell phone either. You won’t get a signal.However, there’s an intercom which connects to an above-ground employee and is monitored all night. The next morning you’ll be served breakfast and you’ll be up on the sunlight again.
Don’t forget to bring some warm and comfortable clothes for the underground tours. The temperature below ground is only 2 degrees Celsius year-round. You shouldn’t worry about the temperature of the underground festivity hall and the suite since they’ve been warmed up to 18 degrees. Extra blankets are always put on the bed. The mining suite comes as part of a bed-and-breakfast tour package so you’ll be served breakfast in the morning. Spending the night in this suite will cost you about 265 $ per person including the tour of the mine, refreshment basket and breakfast. Unfortunately, showers are available in the Sala Bed and Breakfast above ground.
I’m sure this offer sounds pretty tempting. I understand we are all kind of fed up with all the look-alike hotels and studio apartments. If that’s the case with you too, you can check this suite out and enjoy your stay. This luxury underground hotel is a guarantee that no one will bother you if you are a privacy seeker. Please, keep in mind that the deadly silence of the mine is not for everybody. However, we must agree that the underground setting is sensational. What do you think? Does it worth for the money? And would you prefer to be accommodated in the Sala Silver Mine Suiteto experience the extraordinary environment below ground or you’d rather stay in a standard hotel room?
