An Air Traffic Control tower that lay abandoned for 15 years is now beaming with life. Arlanda Airport in Stockholm offers a luxurious stay for travelers in a Control Tower for a unique relaxing experience. The transformation was stunning and very creative.

Air control tower hotel provides unique view

The apartment was designed by Swedish designer Cilla Ramnek offering guests a panoramic view of the entire airport as reported by Travel & Leisure. The floors to ceiling windows offer the guest a breathtaking view of the runway. It has a kitchen and dining area.

It has a minimalist Scandi-chic feel with a grey and black colour scheme with bold design touches, including leopard-print chairs and cross patterned bed linens. The Arlanda Airport air control tower apartment is a project of HomeAway. It is conducting a competition at present that awards the winner a chance to say at the tower.

Another amazing renovation done by HomeAway was in Paris. It has converted a room at the Eiffel Tower into a designer flat as reported by Telegraph. Another air control tower was converted into an apartment in Tel Aviv and an abandoned lighthouse was made into a hotel in North Carolina. It will introduce this alternative vacation rental to other countries especially those that thrive through their tourism industry.

HomeAway is a vacation rental organization that offers homes in lieu of the costly hotels. They are promoting home rental for travelers, thus, enticing travelers to avail of their cheap accommodations. It partnered with Swedavia and Stockholm Arlanda. The winners will not only get to stay at the flight control tower but they get to win also in the HomeAway accommodations in Oslo, Copenhagen, Stockholm or Helsinki.

Winners may bring with them three guests for the journey.

Arlanda Airport control tower is an vacation rental facility

This is an alternative way to travel. Instead of checking in a hotel that costs so much, this option offers luxury at a very minimal price. This can boost tourism and provide income for those who have listed their homes.

It is like the Airbnb in the U.S. promoted by actor-entrepreneur Ashton Kutcher. He shared that he rented an Airbnb listed home after his divorce form Demi Moore. This is the reason why he invested in the company.

Airnbnb has its headquarters in San Francisco, California and has over 3,000,000 lodging listings in 65,000 cities and 191 countries. It owns no hotel or lodging facility but works as a broker and earns through commission. It is a hospitality service enabling people to rent vacation homes at reasonable cost. Airbnb is available in 26 languages and has been operating since 2008.
