29 Reasons Tiny Hotels Are The Next Big Travel Trend

photo PurPods
Tiny homes have become a beloved way of living because it has less of an impact on the environment, your wallet, and overall materialism. The movement has gained welcomed ground in tourism as well—and for good reason. While jetsetting and globetrotting, tiny hotels allow you to have more of a home away from home than simply a room. These cottages, lodges, and treehouses allow you to be devoured by gorgeous landscapes and big-city living without the overwhelming vibe of staying in some grandiose hotel. Tiny hotels help you slip into local life or total tranquility with ease. Check out some our favorites around the world!
