Every travel enthusiast, when planning their vacation, chooses their hotel based on certain needs.
There are those who go for the best low-cost offers to save on the price, those who don’t plan to give up certain comforts, and those who don’t compromise comfort for price and book only extra luxurious hotels.
However, there is a small number of people who let themselves be fascinated by peculiarities and throw themselves into unique situations in order to live a memorable experience, even at the expense of the comfort of conventional accommodation facilities.
We dedicated this post to the 10 most peculiar hotels in the world!
10. Capsule Hotel, Japan
Let’s start with the Capsule Hotel, a type of structure invented a few years ago in Japan and now very common in the Asian archipelago. These are small nooks adjacent to each other, which resemble a beehive. But, don’t be fooled by the size! The capsules are quite comfortable and there are many comforts inside them.
9. La Piantata Farmhouse, Italy
Who hasn’t dreamed of having a treehouse? With the La Piantata farmhouse, you can make one of your childhood wishes come true – sleep in a house built on top of a tree. Built 8 meters above the ground, this hotel is located in Rome in the open countryside. You can be a kid again while enjoying a breathtaking view surrounded by nature.
8. Icehotel, Sweden
Higher on the list, we find a building, rather a type of buildings, which for most of us seems really unbelievable, but it is absolutely normal in Scandinavian countries. The Ice Hotel in Jukkasjärvi, a town in the far north of Sweden, is entirely made of ice, both, inside and out.
The building is truly impressive and its charm makes it one of the best tourist accommodations in the country. It’s also the most beautiful ice hotel in the world.
7. Jules’ Lodge, USA
Diving enthusiasts will surely appreciate the Jules’ Lodge. This underwater facility is located 6 meters beneath the water near Key Largo, Florida, and ranks seventh on our “peculiarity” list. Although the spaces are not particularly large, the rooms still seem to be fantastic and surprisingly comfortable.
And so, do you want to put the pleasure of ordering a pizza and having it delivered to you by a sub delivery man?
6. Sala Silvergruva, Sweden
Here’s another hotel located in Sweden, but this one isn’t made of ice. Actually, this one is found in what once used to be a silver mine. Today, Sala Silvergruva is an elegant hotel that breaks the record of the deepest hotel in the world. Its rooms are located 155 meters under the ground. And, if its location doesn’t fascinate you, in the meanders of the mine you will discover truly fantastic lakes, caves, and galleries.
5. Songjijan, China
The Songjijan hotel in China finds itself in the top five by rightfully winning the fifth place on the list. It’s one of the most beautiful resorts on the Asian continent as well as in the whole world. It’s built and developed inside a fantastic natural waterfall and offers its guests extremely high comfort and high-quality services.
4. Boot Hotel, New Zealand
Not sure if you’ve watched the cartoon “Mamma Goose and Grimm”, but even if you’ve never watched it, it follows the lives of a goose and a dog, living in a house in the shape of a boot. Living in a boot-shaped house… funny, right? Well, actually, there’s a hotel in that shape, the Boot Hotel in New Zealand. It seems that its owners were inspired by the cartoon and create a hotel just like that. This hotel is small, with only two floors, and has the shape of a boot, of course.
Would you like to stay in a boot?
3. Sand Hotel, England
Some people find it hard to make a small sandcastle on the beach, while others are able to sculpt authentic works of art. Then, there are some crazy people who managed to build a real hotel from sand. It’s truly fantastic! It’s just a pity that the Sand Hotel in Weymouth in Dorset, a town on the English coast, came down with the first autumn rains.
2. Jumbo Hostel, Stockholm
Consisting of 25 rooms, the Jumbo Hostel, in Stockholm, wins the silver medal. This very unusual accommodation facility has been, unbelievably, made from the remains of an old Boeing.
Of course, the most beautiful and coveted suite for guests is the one located in the former cockpit, which guarantees a sensational view of the airport.
1. Dog Bark Park Inn, USA
Only the Americans could come up with an idea as absurd as it’s brilliant. In the first place, we find the Dog Bark Park Inn, which is located in the state of Idaho.
The hotel attracts an enormous number of annual visitors, but we would bet that the latter are not attracted by the quality of the services. The hotel consists of two structures: Toby and Sweet Willy; and, we believe it’s appropriate to say, what dog names…
