This hotel isn’t fully devoted to the award-winning book series penned by J.K Rowling, but they have a themed room called the “Wizard Chambers” you can stay at. And you can be rest assured that the room isn’t some dodgy cupboard under the stairs but a full-fledged room of what looks like Harry’s dormitory in Hogwarts. The details of the room are truly impeccable, you’ll instantly feel like you’re on the set of the movie series. Everything looks almost akin to the real deal, now all you need to do is imagine the actual Harry Potter to turn up and greet you at the door.

Just a heads up though, the rate for the room will set you back up to RM1,300 per night, but for any true-blue Harry Potter fan, the price tag is worth materializing their childhood dreams. Plus, you’ll get a lifetime’s worth of bragging rights that’ll make other Potterheads green with envy.

Where: Georgian House Hotel, London
Price per night: £239 (RM1,327.92)

Ever wondered how Hobbits stayed in those cute homes built within the hills? Well, your curiousity may just be rewarded, as some folks have built an actual house based on the ones you’ve seen in Lord of The Rings or The Hobbit movie series! Sure, there’s Hobbiton in New Zealand (which you can only visit, not stay), but this enchanted abode will give you an experience like no other. Did we even mention the hotel is located at one of the most beautiful settings on Earth? The Shire is nestled in the colourful forested foothills of Cabinet Mountains.

Psst, don’t forget to bring some prosthetic hair along to slap on your hands and feet. Since you’re going to stay at a Hobbit’s house, might as well make the effort to be one!

So where do Stormtroopers and allies of Lord Vader come to rest after a day’s work in England? At Lord Vader’s Quarters situated in Hotel Pelirocco! The room may have a minimalistic approach to it but it has all the essential items in it – walls adorned with light sabers and other weapons of mass destruction, a Darth Vader costume, and also authentic Star Wars memorabilia and DVDs.

This “heaven for Imperialists and Jedis alike” was designed as a “Father and Son” cabin, and is quite popular with families or couples over the year. If you and your kids really love Star Wars, then hey, maybe you can be the Darth Vader to your kid’s Skywalker for the day at this hotel.

Where: Hotel Pelirocco, Brighton, UK.
Price per night: £95 (RM527.83)

#4 Batman

Quick Robin, to the Batcave! This motel room in Taiwan is probably the most detailed movie-themed room we’ve ever seen before. The room looks like it’s in an actual bat cave, complete with a bat signal carved into its ceiling and surrounded by dark, mysterious walls and décor. If that’s not enough there’s even a Batman logo-shaped TV placed directly in front of an open bath tub. The crazy part about the room is there’s a bat mobile placed next to the sofa, so you can pretend to be the Caped Crusader on its way to your next mission at any given time.

But crazy may just be an understatement to this room because, the guys at Eden Motel has decided to do something far more insane – charge the room by the hour. Yeap, you read that right. According to reviews, it’s worth the money. However, a butler by the name of Alfred Pennyworth will not be included in the booking, though.

Where: Eden Motel, Taiwan
Price per hour: Starts from NTD3,500 (RM506.53)

For once, you’ll be glad to stay at a hotel which has temperatures between -3°C and -5°C and utter this infamous line – “the cold never bothered me anyway.” Hotel de Glace in Canada is a majestic ice hotel (yes, it’s literally made of ice) that’ll blow you away at first sight. The delicate and intricate details of the room will instantly transport you to another world. And did you know that this very hotel was used as an inspiration for Elsa’s ice castle in Frozen?

Back in 2014, the hotel converted a suite dedicated to the movie complete with ice-carved characters from the movie. Although the themed suite is no longer available at the hotel, you can still stay at this wintry marvel and live the life of Princess Elsa for a day. After all, who wouldn’t like the idea of being an ice princess with magical powers?

Where: The Hôtel de Glace (Ice Hotel), Canada
Price per night: Starts from CAD269 (RM911.46)

If you’re a girly girl at heart and have a penchant for all things pink and Barbie, then this is the place for you! At this hotel, you can be a Barbie girl, in a Barbie world, surrounded by ‘plastic’ and yes, it’s fantastic. For Barbie fans, this suite might look like a dream – walls plastered with Barbie wallpaper, Barbie dolls encased and framed, 50 shades of pink duvets, sofas, bathroom, and mirrors that looked like it belonged to a castle, fit for a Barbie princess.

This room screams an all-girls night out, so you can throw bachelorette parties, sleepovers or whatever your pink heart desires but all at a steep cost of close to RM18,000.

Where: The Palms Casino Resort, Las Vegas
Price per night: USD$4,000 (RM 17,836) Being a plastic doll can be really expensive!

Nothing is despicable about this room, it’s quite the opposite; it’s delightful! If you’re a fan of the Despicable Me movie series, you’d know by now how cool Edith, Margo, and Agnes’ bedroom looks like all thanks to their loving supervillain father, Gru. Not only kids envied how amazing it must felt like to sleep in a jet surrounded by Minions, we adults secretly wished we had a bed like that!

The Despicable Me Kid’s Suite is located in Lowes Portofino Bay Hotel nearby Universal Studios Orlando. There’s another room meant for adults attached to this room, but maybe you can make a trade with your kids and sleep in the jet for the night, that is, if you can fit in it.

Where: Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando, Florida
Price per night: USD$814 (RM3,629.63)

So @lindsaykaep told me this is her most favorite room she's ever stayed in on any trip we've ever taken. #pointsscored

Honestly, which Disney princess is the best out of the lot? If you’re fickle minded (like us) and can’t choose which Disney princess you favour the most, don’t worry, because you can be every Disney princess there is at this hotel suite. From Cinderella to Sleeping Beauty, this room will definitely give you the ‘suite’ dreams you’ve ever dreamt all your childhood guaranteed with a “and they lived happily ever after” ending.

A classic four-post bed made up with luxurious looking duvet and surrounded by regal-looking wallpapers and furniture in this room looks like it’s definitely made for Disney royalty. To top it all off, you can ‘look over’ Sleeping Beauty’s castle in the bathroom which is made of hand-cut mosaics.

Price per night: Starts from USD$1,100 (RM4,904.90)

Today's #MadHatterTeaParty for a #Henparty at #WonderlandHouse #Brighton @brightonwonderland

A post shared by Vintage Themed Caterers (@roseandolivetea) on


Fall down the rabbit hole into the magical world of Alice in Wonderland at Wonderland House. This hotel isn’t any hotel, it’s actually a house fully dedicated to the Alice in Wonderland theme. The house has five floors, six rooms, and can accommodate up to 24 people. So, you’ll definitely have ample space to throw a tea party or invite a bunch of Mad Hatters to stay for the night with you.

The details of the house will swoon you over – an array of clocks decorating the walls, classic English tea sets, mirrors everywhere, and a spectacular seaside view. Sadly, there are no actual rabbit holes in the house. You can only rent the whole property, so it’s best to bring the whole wonderland clan with you to have a jolly good time there. If you’re travelling in a smaller group, you can alternatively stay at their little sister, the Looking Glass Cottage which is equally stunning.

Where: Wonderland House, Brighton, England
Price per night: Starts from £480 (RM2,674)
