Controversy Tram Hotel

In the Dutch village of Hoogwoud, Irma and Frank Appel have turned the garden of Controversy Farm into a tram hotel. It all began in 2006 with two trams: one from Amsterdam and the other from Germany. They remodeled the train cars in their own idiosyncratic style and named it Controversy Tram Inn after the 1981 Prince album Controversy. Each tram is outfitted according to the nationality it represents: French, Italian, English-American, or Mexican. Probably the most unique feature you’ll find at Controversy is the sombrero -shaped Jacuzzi inside their most recent tram conversion. Then again, you can also rent movies from a UFO. It would seem that Irma and Frank have succeeded in translating the funk of Prince’s Controversy into their own funky aesthetic.
