    At check-in: Scale says 160 pounds.
    At check-out: Can we please get a larger scale!

    ..... but it has to be fun. It's one of a kind. Who needs a diet anyway? ;)

    I found some additional photos in another article about it, and their claim is preposterous. The hotel is fully decorated with cake, but It is most definitely NOT made from cake. Wood floors, regular walls, brick fireplace, ceramic bathtub, etc. It's a three-story hotel, for goodness sake. They can't actually bake structural cake! :)

    The disappointing thing about that slideshow is that it doesn't show any of the really impressive-sounding elements of the hotel, like the "huge two metre high Easter Island statue, made entirely from chocolate mud cake" and the "Mayan fudge temple, complete with floating meringue 'clouds', 'sacrificial' salted caramel and chocolate hearts," etc. I'd really like to see that stuff!

    Me too, but it's maybe only to see for guests of the hotel. :) Having said this, I hope that more images will emerge on the web.

    Here's a slideshow that has the easter island statue, a treasure chest, and a sea turtle:

    The daily rate will be based on how much of your room has been eaten.

    No I was right the first time.
    It's heavier than any ready mix concrete on the market to be used for foundation works.
