We’ve hand picked some of the World’s craziest hotels that we believe are well worth a visit.
From underwater rooms to sleeping in a crane, it seems there’s no limit on what hotels are offering now.
Back in 2009, brothers Frank and Patrik Riklin hit the headlines when they opened the first zero star hotel in a bunker in Germany.
Their hotels have now risen to fame and many people are desperate to stay in a zero star hotel which boasts that “the only star is you”. The brother’s newest project is a completely open air hotel in the heart of the Swiss Alps.
All that’s available at the hotel is a double bed, a lamp on each side and a butler who brings you coffee and sandwiches in the morning. With no walls and no roof, this hotel is definitely one of a kind and you can truly be one with nature as you sleep among the mountains under millions of stars.
Be warned though that the closest bathroom/washroom is a ten minute walk away and due to weather, your reservation could be cancel at the last minute.
This hotel has capsule rooms rather than standard bedrooms that are more commonly found in hotels. Guests of the hotel share bathrooms and a kitchen/living space, however, the hotel does offer a few capsules that have their own private toilet.
This hotel is situated right in the heart of Saint Petersburg and single rooms are priced at roughly £20 or £40 with a toilet, so it’s a perfect place for travellers passing through and on a tight budget.
Hilton hotels are offering a Thomas the Tank Engine themed suite for the month on August that will give both adults and children a fantastic hotel experience.
Fans of the show can book into this room in either the New York Hilton or the Waldorf Hilton in London, however, one night will set you back around £450.
The room does contain a playroom for children and features toys, books and games all related to Thomas the Tank Engine of course.
This hotel was originally opened as a place for watersports fanatics to stay, however, due to its beautiful rooms and exterior, this hotel has gained a lot of attention from all types of travellers. Punta Sirena is located in Curanipe which is a quaint coastal resort in the Province of Cauquenes.
This hotel is perfect if you just want to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and just spend some time with the ones you are closest too.
On arrival, this hotel may not look like much but once you find out its little secret, it becomes a pretty cool place to stay at. Before it was a hotel, it was a drive-in movie theatre and the owners decided to keep this, making their hotel stand out from the crowd.
Once checked into your room, walk over to the on-site restaurant for some food before you kick back and watch the movie on the big screen, all from the comfort of your room. Alternatively, you can keep it old school and drive up to the screen and watch it from your car like they do in the movies.
This hotel is great for those going to see The Great Sand Dunes in Colorado.
This is similar to the hotel in the Swiss Alps in the sense that you can sleep under the stars however you aren’t out in the open.
The Attrap’Reves offers ‘bubbles’ for customers to sleep in overnight. The bubbles have double beds alongside some smaller furniture and each one has a smaller bubble attached that contains and shower and toilet. Most of the bubbles are completely transparent but a couple of them do have some cover if you wanted some privacy.
Now, this may look like a scene from the TV series Lost, but rest assured this plane hotel really does exist. The fully refurbished aircraft can be found hidden among the Manuel Antonio jungle and sits approximately 50 feet up in the air.
A private deck has been built on both wings of the plane, meaning you can see some fantastic jungle and ocean views. The suite contains three queen sized beds, two bathrooms and a kitchenette so you can experience a plane like never before.
If a safari is one thing that has always been on your bucket list but you haven’t managed to check it off yet then this could be right up your alley. Giraffe Manor is an exclusive boutique hotel in the Langata suburb of Nairobi and sits upon 12 acres of privately owned land.

The manor can be booked individually or as part of a package through The Safari Collection, who offer other safari experiences throughout East Africa.
This one is as the name suggests…it’s a hotel on top of a 50 metre high crane. This unusual hotel features 3 suites, a panoramic lounge and there is even a hot tub pool at the very top that the guests can access.

Both the top and the bottom levels have a bed so you can choose whether you want to sleep under the stars or among the sea life. The middle floor is where the bathroom and lounge can be found. As a guest here you will arrange all your meals with the Manta Resort staff upon arrival. You will also be provided with a kayak, snorkel and fins, so you can dive freely around your room.
