Because the easiest way to score VIP treatment at a hotel is to either be rich or the ONLY guest, here are eight exclusive accommodations around the world that boast one single room — and your host’s undivided attention.

One Room Hotel – Prague, Czech Republic
Size: Approx. 300sqft
Rate: $900/nt
This suite’s the only spot in town where your view of the city won’t be spoiled by the bizarre-looking Žižkov Television Tower. Why is that, you ask? Because it’s ON TOP of said tower, 216ft up in the air. Even better, there’s a restaurant and bar up there as well, accessible from your room via a private spiral staircase.

Size: 130sqft
Rate: $330/nt
Located in what was once a red-light district, above the smallest coffee shop in all of Copenhagen, this former cobbler’s apartment which dates back to 1905 now sports a double bed, flat-screen TV, and FREE mini-bar (which is kinda, totally better than this one). It’s run by a former prop and set designer who also owns nearby Granola Cafe, where you’ll be enjoying your complimentary breakfasts.

It doesn’t get much more exclusive than this boat-suite atop the Southbank Centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall; available only until the end of 2014, potential guests are required to win a lottery before they can shack up for a single night. Yes, just ONE. You’re going to want to take a look inside, right here.

Hotel Droog — Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Size: 753sqft
Rate: Available upon request
Part of the Droog design company’s headquarters, this art gallery/ shop/ cafe/ spa/ garden doubles (quintuples?) as, you guessed it, a hotel. The sole room for rent is upstairs, and features a full kitchen and bath, breathtaking city views, and killer natural lighting; like you, it’s also equipped for business meetings and parties.

Casa Manni — Rome, Italy
Size: 900sqft
Rate: $960/nt to $1500/nt, depending on the season
This ultra-bespoke suite’s built in a 17th-century palazzo in the heart of Rome and every window comes with a view — even the one in the bathroom. Stocked with all the finest china and silver you don’t have at home, it’s run by a dude who owns his own olive oil company — so expect a gift bottle of extra virgin before departing.

Size: 320sqft
Rate: From $160/nt

Rate: $438/nt
Built inside a converted harbor crane, the hotel’s part of a trio of unique accommodations in the area that also include a refurbished lighthouse and renovated lifeboat. The beauty of HvH is that guests, who take one of two elevators up to their suite (located in the former machine/control rooms), can actually change the view by rotating the cabin. Seriously, they let you drive the crane!
