Dutch Hotel Eats Up Smaller Houses For Lunch

Like a giant Sylvanian Families house brought to life, this is an actual hotel which you can book a room in right now, staying in the picturesque Dutch city of Zaandam.

Standing 11-storeys tall, the Inntel hotel has 160 rooms, with various house-shaped facades popping out like traditional Dutch houses. Along with the rooms, it's also got a restaurant, swimming pool, and health center with Finnish sauna and Turkish bath. Sadly there aren't any beavers, mice or bear-characters to be found nesting in the gables—but with any luck a chocolate or mint might appear on your pillow after the turn-down service has visited.
