Have you ever wanted to stay in a hotel that is a little … well … different? There are a few hotels around the world that offer guests a unique experience, so if you're bored of staying in your typical hotel and want to stay somewhere with a difference, consider trying out one of these weird hotels around the world.
Jumbo Hostel, Sweden
Spend the night in a real jumbo jet at Stockholm's Arlanda Airport. But you will not be cramped in a tiny airplane seat. Instead you can stay in a choice of private rooms and dorm bed options, with ensuite bathrooms and a bar and restaurant on board. The most luxurious room in Jumbo Hostel is the exclusive Cockpit Room which takes up the entire top deck.
Das Park Hotel, Austria
Located in Ottensheim, Das Park Hotel has unique rooms that are made out of large concrete drain pipes. They are certainly cozy but have everything you need including double bed, windows, storage space and electricity.
Capsule Hotels, Japan
A very popular accommodation option in Japan are the capsule hotels … that's right … there is not just one. These budget friendly rooms are exactly as they sound – they are slightly larger than a coffin and stacked one on top of the other. Consider it like a fully enclosed bunk bed with just enough room to sleep.
The Gamirasu Cave Hotel, Turkey
Located in the beautiful Cappadocia region of Turkey, the Gamirasu Cave Hotel is actually an ancient Byzantine monastic retreat that has been converted into a hotel. As a guest you are treated to the unique opportunity to stay in a cave that has been converted into a hotel room.
Hobbit Motel, New Zealand
Since New Zealand is the place where The Lord of the Rings and the upcoming Hobbit movies were filmed, it makes sense that they have the very first Hobbit Motel. Located in Waitomo, the Hobbit Motel offers self contained rooms with kitchens and private bathrooms, and they are all built like little Hobbit homes.
Hôtel de Glace, Canada
Located in Quebec, the Hôtel de Glace is a hotel made entirely out of ice that has to be built each winter. Obviously you can not stay here all year round, but during the winter you can stay in this temporary ice marvel, where even your bed and furniture is made out of ice.
Poseidon Undersea Resort
Located on a private island in Fiji, Poseidon Undersea Resort is the world's first underwater hotel. This luxury resort is only for those with a lot of cash to spend, but for your money you get luxury rooms located completely under the sea, with huge glass windows that look out into the coral filled tropical waters of Fiji.
