Under the sea — You’ve never seen a hotel lobby like this

By Ofonime Essien

This hotel gives the phrase “sleeping with the fishes” a whole new meaning.

The Radisson Blu hotel in Berlin is home to the AquaDom, an 82-foot high aquarium that holds more than one million liters of water. The tank is a part of Sea Life Berlin, and houses 1,500 fish from 97 species.

By aquarium standards, this is pretty impressive. But what makes it even cooler is that guests can ride an elevator that runs through the center of the tank — sure beats boring elevator music!

And the AquaDom isn’t the only underwater attraction. For guests wanting to channel their inner Little Mermaid, there is a walk-through underwater tunnel and an interactive rock pool on the ground floor.

Go under the sea with these stunning photos.

Now that’s a lot of water!

Most hotels hire housekeepers to keep things tidy. But at the Radisson Blu, they hire scuba divers to clean the tank three or four times a day.
