Is this the world’s cheapest hotel? Workers and tourists in Bangladesh can stay in this floating hotel for as little as 30p a night.
But as a night’s stay at the hotel costs less than a bar of chocolate, the facilities aren’t up to much.
Guests at the Faridpur Hotel in Dhaka do have access to free water and toilets during their stay – but they have to sleep alongside hundreds of other guests with only a small locker to keep their possessions in.
Astonishingly, the boats hotels are so popular they have been bringing in a roaring trade for more than 60 years.
On the bank of Buriganga in the capital city of the tiny country,the hotel is made up of five separate floating boats.
But unlike the eloquent, comfy hotels western travellers are used to, with exquisite furnishing and striking views, these hotels are anything but fancy.
There are no TV sets, no living-dining area, no comfy, queen size mattresses and no flowers to decorate the room. Yet at any given point in a day, one can find scores of guests packed inside the floating hotels.
