The top 5 strangest hotels in the world

Paul Johnson

We've scoured the Web to bring you some of the most unusual hotels out there. They not all that luxurious but curious nonetheless and so I think worthy of a mention on any travel blog due to their quirky nature.

Free Spirit Spheres, Canada

Seemingly floating among the treetops, you could be forgiven for thinking these spheres are UFOs if observing them from a distance.  They sway in the breeze and with people's weight and typically accommodate two people at a time.

The Capsule Hotel, The Netherlands

Moored (yes, I said 'moored'!) in the Hague, these orange capsules are in fact old 1970s survival pods rescued from an oil rig.  They're tight for space but can accommodate up to three, and there's still space left over for an emergency chemical toilet.

Sala Silvermine, Sweden

This single suite can be found 120km from Stockholm and 155 metres underground in a mine that produced more than 3 tons of silver a year at the height of its production.  You can take a tour of the mine but, come nightfall, you'll be the only occupant.  Thankfully there's intercom access with the outside world should you need it.

Dog Bark Park Inn, Idaho, USA

I'm not sure what the thinking is behind this bed and breakfast hotel, but who's to say you can't put two rooms in a giant, wooden beagle structure and then charge people to stay?

Das Park Hotel, Austria

If someone told you they were going to use segments of sewage pipes to make a hotel, you'd think they were nuts.  Due to their construction, though, they serve as quite cool rooms in the summer and, weighing in at almost 10 tonnes each, they are extremely robust.
