By Marie-Pier Hamon – on in Travel

Travelling is incredible! It allows us to discover other cultures, to meet new people, in short, to live enriching life experiences. Obviously, going to another country is often a big change of scenery. It can be even more so if you decide to stay in an unusual place. Trade traditional hotels or hostels for one of these original accommodations. We are convinced these original hotels will make you want to travel even more!

This hotel, located in Germany, was created by Lars Stroschen, a musician but also a man passionate by everything related to new technologies. You can thus find unique and audacious rooms where furniture is suspended from the ceiling and where levitating beds are part of the decor.

Here is one of the most original hotels where you should stay. This place is quite particular: The Costa Verde Hotel was constructed inside a Boeing 727 that dates back to 1965. Incredible, isn’t it? This establishment, which is found in the middle of the jungle in Costa Rica, offers you a much more comfortable stay than one in a normal airplane. Indeed, you can go swim in one of the three pools on the terrace of the hotel or rest in one of the very well decorated rooms.

You can find this strange hotel in Amsterdam. The Inntel Zaandam Hotel is inspired by the architectural style of the houses in this capital city. Even though the exterior is very traditional, the 160 rooms of this establishment are quite modern. Also, you will be able to discover Holland’s history. Indeed, each room has a historical photo to make you discover a little more about the city’s culture.

If you’re a science-fiction amateur, this hotel is perfect for you. The 9 Hour Capsule Hotel in Kyoto lets you sleep in one of its capsules. The ones for women are separated from the ones for men and give you the opportunity to sleep like you’ve lever slept before (unless you’ve already experienced sleeping inside a spaceship). These original capsules are equipped with a wake-up light therapy alarm clock, high-quality sheets and an air conditioning system.

This fort, which was renovated into a luxury spa/hotel retreat in 2012, has 9 bedrooms and is located in the middle of the sea. The Spitbank Fort was built after the Royal Commission in 1859 and is said to be haunted… It is not without reason that it is on our list of original hotels!

You can find these charming accommodations in British Columbia in a tropical forest. The Free Spirit Spheres have been designed to allow you to enjoy nature in an original and comfortable way. They are suspended from the trees by ropes so that they swing with the wind whatever the weather.

 

There are hundreds of original hotels around the world. You simply have to find them! After all, why sleep in a traditional place when you can sleep near fish or in a 1965 Boeing 727?
