The Gevora Hotel in Dubai, ranked number one in terms of the world's tallest hotels, has 75 floors and measures 356 meters, just one more than the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel which is also located in Dubai. The Gevora Hotel has 528 rooms, mostly luxury, but all according to the size of the hotel, the smallest has 46 m2 and the largest 85 m2, in addition, each floor has a butler willing to meet all the needs of the guests. Its five restaurants offer a variety of environments and kitchens. This impressive golden-colored hotel also has a spa, two gyms, one for men and one for women and an indoor pool. Despite being the highest hotel in the world, luxury starts from the moment you enter through one of its revolving lobby doors, covered in solid gold! and it is mounted in one of the eight elevators owned by the hotel and it takes only 38 seconds to climb the 75 floors to reach the spectacular rooftop pool where you can enjoy the best views of the city by having a cocktail or having a drink in personal bathroom.

The largest hotel in the world today is the hotel MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, with 6,198 rooms, its main building has 5,044 (4,293 rooms and 751 suites) to which we must add 576 suites located in the three towers The Signature, the 51 Skylofts lofts and the 29 villas of The Mansion at MGM Grand. The hotel also houses the famous MGM Grand Garden Arena concert and sports pavilion, with world-renowned restaurants such as the Joel Robuchon, specializing in French haute cuisine, the Tom Colicchio's Craftsteak steakhouse and the Morimoto Las Vegas, which prepares creative Japanese cuisine. And if that were not enough, the entertainment comes from the hand of Cirque du Soleil with its show KÀ, a production that includes acrobats, martial arts, puppets and pyrotechnics.

Although not all good news for the MGM Grand, the world's largest hotel title will be snatched away by the Abraj Kudai hotel that is currently being built in Mecca, this hotel will have 10,000 rooms located in twelve towers with 70 restaurants and four heliports. In addition, it will have the largest dome in the world.

The smallest hotel

It is difficult to say which is the smallest hotel in the world, on the one hand it could be the Hotel Central & Café in Copenhagen. It has only one room of 12 square meters with all kinds of details and amenities, located above the cafeteria Granola Café in the neighborhood of Vesterbro. Obviously breakfast is included with the reservation, which can be tasted down the stairs or in the room. Although this one does not hold the Guinness Record, since the organization considers that the cafeteria is part of the hotel, for them, the smallest hotel in the world is located in Germany, specifically in Ambreng, in the Bavarian region. It's about the Eh'haeusl hotel. It only has 56 square meters and a single room whose price is 240 euros a night (with breakfast included). It has a flat screen TV, piped music, a sofa, a fireplace, a hot tub ... and of course a bed.

Although considers the smallest "hotel" of the world to a popular Volkswagen White beetle that is located in Jordan, specifically in Al Jaya, south of the capital, Amman. This unique accommodation is suitable for two people. Its owner also offers typical Jordanian breakfasts and meals in a nearby cave that was also arranged as a reception.

In 1997 it was renovated but maintaining its traditional aesthetic. It is especially popular for the benefits of its thermal waters that attracted in the past the famous samurai in times of war to heal their wounds and their muscular problems. Its 1,313 years old have surely given for many stories.

The most expensive hotel
