The Utter Inn or hotel is a place where anyone can book a room, and have a view of an underwater aquarium. There are twin beds and a table in the bottom submerged room. Along each wall of the underwater room are windows. Guests climb down a ladder to reach their bottom sleeping room. In the upper red painted shed (that is above water level) there is a toilet and cooker to prepare food. A kettle, cutlery, clean water to drink, coffee, tea and some other things are provided. There is not any washing facility, such as a wash basin, shower or bath room as such.
In English the hotel is actually the Otter Inn.
The actual hotel is a floating room that is submerged 3 meters beneath the surface of the Mälaren Lake.
The hotel has been accepting guests since June 2000. Mikael Genberg (a Swedish artist and sculptor) designed and invented the Utter Inn. Mikael did this hotel as an art project for underwater accommodation.
