The Mine Suite at the Sala Silvermine
Located in Vdstmanland County, Sweden, this hotel offers a “caved in experience”, and I mean you are going to sleep in a cave, which is furnished with king sized beds, duvets, and a candle light dining table and is 500 feet underground. With a year-round 38 degree temperature, it is perfect for keeping your complimentary cheese and wine dinner intact (don’t worry, the room is heated). This room is especially inviting for people wanting to ‘disconnect’, since mobile devices do not work at all down that far. There is an intercom set up to talk to above-ground staff though!
