If resting your head in an unconventional hotel has found its way to your 2014 bucket list, get ready to cross one off already.
You'll just need to book a trip to Russia and no, not for the Olympics.
High atop Russia's Mount Elbrus is the newly opened LEAPrus 3912. This unique hotel opened in September of 2013 and has the bragging rights to being the world's highest-placed eco-hotel. Resting on the southern side of Mount Elbrus, LEAPrus 3912 sits at 3,912 meters in altitude, which not-so-coincidentally is what gave it its name.
The Italian architectural firm LEAPfactory are the masterminds behind this masterpiece and designed the space to be as energy-efficient as possible. It offers 46 beds for guests, a living area, a restaurant and kitchen, and views that simply can't be beat.
