Are you looking for an unconventional, romantic getaway? Well, look no further than Sala Silvergruva. Located an hour and a half northwest of Stockholm in the town of Sala, Sala Silvergruva is an old mine that is now used for tourism, as well as honing the World’s Deepest Hotel Room. The Mine Suite, which has been created from a repurposed mine shaft, is located 155 meters underground and is located next to the festivities hall, surrounded by cavities and galleries from the mine.
When you arrive as guests of the Mine Suite, you will first receive a guided tour of your surroundings. The suite, with a maximum capacity of two people, is perfect for a short getaway. Following the tour, you will then receive a basket of champagne, biscuits, cheese, chocolate, and fruit. The morning after, the staff serves you breakfast in your room before bringing you back up to ground level.
Of course, there are a few precautions that you should note before booking your stay. There is no cell phone service in the suite, but there is an intercom radio for you to communicate with the staff who is always available to ensure your needs are met. Additionally, there is only a toilet in the hotel suite, but you are able to use the showers, as well as the lounge that is available at the hostel above. It is also vital to remember to pack warm, comfortable clothes! The mine stays at a cool two degrees Celsius year-round, but the suite does reach 18 degrees Celsius in addition to having a very warm blanket and extras if you need it.
Will you take the chance and sleep 155 meters underground?
