The World’s Quirkiest Hotels

If you’re looking for an out the box adventure and want to stay somewhere truly odd or unique while on holiday, check out these hotels…

Sewage Pipe Pods in Australia

The Das Park hotel is a real no frills establishment and it’s made from refurbished sewerage pipes. There really is nothing fancy about this hotel, but it offers a cosy space and it’s a pay what you wish habitat, so it great for the budget too.

Funnily enough, there are no bathrooms, but there are shared amenities close by.

Hobbit House in America

While New Zealand has Hobbiton, South Dakota has Hobbit House.

A whimsical tree house that was inspired by the Lord of the Rings, this hotel has circular doors and windows, Elvish inscriptions, a mask of Sauron and a gauntlet cradling the One Ring. It’s the ultimate hotel for avid fans.

The Shark Tank in Paris

If you want to sleep with the fishes you can! At the Aquarium de Paris you can spend the night in a glass capsule in the shark tank.

You’ll be 33 feet under water and surrounded by more than 30 sharks, so this experience is not for the faint hearted.

Ice Hotel in Canada

The Hôtel de Glace has become incredibly famous and this Quebec City attraction is not a cheap one to visit either. You may need to win big playing the Bingo Australia has to offer before you can splash out on a night here.

The hotel has been crafted from 30,000 tons of snow and 50 tons of ice and it’s filled with ice sculptures, snow carvings and stunning winter décor.

Turkish Caves in Turkey

The Yunak Evleri is a 5 star hotel in Cappadocia, Turkey and it’s made up of a labyrinth of caves that date back to the 5th century.

There are 40 deluxe suites in the hotel and they have all been designed to fit in with the cave’s features and blend in to the landscape.

Mountaintop Cabin in Italy

High up in the Alps is a tiny hotel that honours a fallen climber. The hotel is situated at 8,300 feet high on the top of the Foronon Buinz Mountain and has views that simply need to be seen to be believed.

Designed by Giovanni Pesamosca, the wood and steel cabin sleeps 9 climbers at a time and is only reachable via helicopter or extreme hike.

The Catacombs in Paris

If you love a touch of the macabre a night in the catacombs in Paris is the perfect option.

Airbnb held a sleepover promotion in the ossuary in 2016 and although there is no word yet as to whether this would be a repeat event, it certainly ticks the box for the creepiest place to spend the night.

Prison Hotel in Sweden

Langholmen Hotel is perfect for gluttons for punishment.

Guests are treated to prison riots, prison food and jail breaks and can choose to sleep in locked cells on bunk beds, or in the gen pop dormitories, and must don striped pjs at night.
