    How does the bike work?

    wow, WOW. woW, Wow, wOW, blearh, ugh, WOw

    Sorry, I am having my love, love, hate thoughts about the spaces above. Like most of you, some I like, and some I don't.
    But I would love to eat, drink, and stay there over night. Finally an exhibition place, that you can make your own.
    I (l)love the undulating mattress, but I also (l)love the rotating bed, the courtyard, and the stripes in the striped room.
    On the other hand, fertility, and the bathroom gallery, I don't like, and don't understand.
    But if someone can explain to me, what this has to do with the design benefits between the two country's, I'm all ears.

    I have to say, it's very schizophrenic, but it works out surprisingly well. Interesting.

    The rotating bed gives a slightly creepy suggestion of a torture device but otherwise I love this!

    No doubt the bed at Llayers Llove Hotel comes complete with a pea

      That's what I was thinking .. the pea. I think if I stayed there I'd consider bringing my own, just in case :)
