Wacky Hotels

Meet the world’s wackiest hotels

There is absolutely nothing better than a great travel story to share at your next dinner party with friends and family. In fact, we believe that the wilder, the better! That’s why we put out our feelers for the zaniest hotels we could find across the world, because what’s a trip without a little crazy?

Book And Bed Tokyo
Gather ‘round bookworms! Book and Bed Tokyo in Japan is every book lovers dream - a hotel housed inside a bookstore. Fall sleep with the smell of the stacks fresh in your mind when you curl up in one of the simple futon beds hiding behind the shelves of this store.

Meet the world’s wackiest hotels

Snoozing in a bubble may not be high on your list of priorities, but when you catch a glimpse of the panoramic night sky from these beds, it’s going to be! Situated in the French countryside, these space-age bubbles are fully kitted out for a comfortable stay complete with en-suite bathroom. This is a spot for romance, in case you were on the hunt for the perfect proposal…

JumboStay Hotel
Absolutely in love with travel? Us too! That’s why we’ve got our eyes on the JumboStay Hotel in Stockholm. Built into a grounded jumbo jet, travellers with an extreme wanderlust can book one of the cabins aboard the jet for a night. If you’re looking for something fun for work, book your next conference aboard too!

Cava & Hotel Mastinell
Looking for something a little more luxe? Hotel Mastinell in Barcelona offers a decadent experience in a hotel designed to look like a rack of cava bottles (that’s Spanish bubbly by the way). Concrete tubes hide elegant rooms, fine dining experiences and one of the most superb wine country stays you’re set to find in the area.

V8 Hotel
This is one for the petrolheads! The V8 Hotel in Stuttgart, Germany, is a celebration of motoring power and aesthetic. This hotel has gone out of its way to make sure they’ve used car parts wherever they can from furniture to lighting and even the beds. Plus, no two rooms are the same.

Another brilliant hotel in Sweden, ICEHOTEL is exactly what it seems. Guests are accommodated in igloo-type structures, or normal rooms if you need to warm up a smidge. Cool bars made of ice are a highlight for guests, but make sure to book in winter, or your room may melt around you!

Dog Bark Park Inn
What else could you really wish to do than stay in a giant beagle? If you’re a lover of four-legged friends, Dog Bark Park Inn is ready to accommodate you in Idaho, United States. The decor inside this bed and breakfast is primarily the artistic creation of proprietors, Dennis and Frances, famed chainsaw artists.
