Woah-tels: beyond bed and comfort?

If you are anything like me, an avid expat traveler, then you know that part of the experience is where you stay. Whether you are a budget traveler or an all-luxury socialite, the world offers some quite unique and unusual places to stay while travelling.

I set out to find the most unusual hotels around the world – and I came across some very interesting things. I’ve compiled a list of ten hotels that are definitely unique, not necessarily places I would choose to stay – but as we say in Mexico, en gustos se rompen géneros (each to their own).

  • With my fear of small, dark spaces this hotel is a big no for me, but anyone looking for a unique experience while in Linz, these concrete (renovated and thankfully cleaned) sewage pipes could be an adventure on their own. The rooms have barely enough space for a bed and a lamp, but they are right by the Danube which is a great plus!

Well, I don’t know about you, but some of these hotels I will definitely be avoiding, but others I would quite like to experience. Whether you would rather stay high up in the trees or under the sea, these hidden gems will definitely make your stay much more interesting.
