  29. Gabriella
    | #29

  30. | #30

  33. Anne

  37. Sue
    | #37

    Just for the record for $15,000 per person for Poseidon you only get TWO nights in the underwater room! The other 4 nights are apparently above water in a different room!

  38. Hugo Pickering

    ben :
    none of these look quite comfortable. except maybe the poseidon . i mean who wants to vacation in an old prison…

    You’ve clearly not been to the Malmaison in Oxford (http://www.malmaison-oxford.com/) - worth staying in one of the cells, which are luxurious and VERY comfortable.

  39. Tomas
    | #39

    The cave hotel, Turkey!! and the Poseidon undersea resort.. can’t decide which one.

  48. jwab
    | #48

    The Poseidon and then the Cave. After that, the Floating Hotel. I want to fill it with my friends and go up and down every canal and river in Europe wide enough to accommodate it, starting with the Rhine.

  49. allison

  50. jimmy

  61. Liz
    | #61

    Torn between the Indian tree-house and the Poseidon in Fiji - both ’submerged’ in the midst of nature - fabulous!

  62. gracie
    | #62

    cool thing about the sewage pipe hotel is that it’s a “pay as you wish” system. you pay whatever you feel like. no showers though… and it’s only open from may til october… aber trotzdem… sehr schön :)

  63. Jay
    | #63

    The Poseidon hands down. Awesome!!

  64. | #64

    Some great ideas, i love the houses in Mexico, but then i have always loved houses that hang off the side of a cliff. I built one myself….

  65. Karalynn
    | #65

    If I had to choose I would pick Poseiden Undersea,looks awsome. But if given the opportunity I would stay at Ice Hotel, Canada and the Cave Hotel, Turkey. Just to say I did it.

  66. cavedweller
    | #66

    I’ve been to the cave hotel in turkey and it was fabulous! if you ever have a chance, definitely one of the most amazing experiences of my life : )

    I’d love to stay in all of them, just to experience the world and say I’ve been. Well, maybe not the survival pod…too small..but all in all, very interesting!!!

  96. EMW

  100. R0ux3r
    | #100

    I stayed at a capsule hotel in Tokyo.. I was really drunk and pretty much just needed a place to sleep since the trains were definately finished running for the night. It was great! Comfortable, practically no one else around.. Got in, yanked down my shade, set my phone alarm for 9AM, woke up, got out, went home. No fuss, no muss, no curling up on a street curb. =D

  101. Kelly
    | #101

    I have stayed at the Cave hotel and it was fabulous. Five star and fully recommended.

  102. | #102

    I’ve stayed in capsule hotels in Japan. Some of them are really not so bad.

  103. | #103

    I like the cave hotel in Turkey.

  114. jennifer
    | #114

    Forgot to mention the location, which is Yelapa, Jalisco, MX just south of Puerto Vallarta. @jennifer

  115. | #115

    The caves look so cozy and exotic! Maybe not so much the prison hotel - yikes!

  116. Jamie
    | #116

    Just read online that it costs $15,000 for two people at the Fiji resort…

  117. Janna
    | #117

    Sewage Pipe Hotel in Austria would be awesome place to wake up.

  118. Janna
    | #118

    Poseidon Undersea Resort, Fiji was one I thought would be awesome not the Sewage pipe

  119. Alarm7
    | #119

    I think that even the sand castle would be fun to stay in. I wonder how they keep the “hotel” from falling on the people. Maybe it is like Ceaser’s Palace or something. :)

  120. | #120

    cool hotels

  121. wendy

  122. | #122

  124. Puparoo41
    | #124

    I don’t get a warm cozy feeling from any of them. The one I would be willing to try would be the underwater one.

  125. jihan
    | #125

    The Cave Hotel is awesome!! I’ve stayed a few times and the area is amazing too!

  126. Jimmy

  128. jadekaitlyn
    | #128

    the underwater hotel looks absolutely breathtaking, i’d give anything to stay there !

  129. angela
    | #129

    By far I think The Floating Hotel in Sweden and the Cave Hotel, Turkey look not only the most interesting, but may be the most safe. I’m not sure how that sand hotel works, but I can’t imagine sleeping on that bed!

  130. nikkig50
    | #130

    the tree houses look like a home i stayed in for a month

  136. TereGalligan
    | #136


  137. | #137

    These hotels are sweet! I personally like the undersea hotel but the cave hotel in Turkey is pretty awesome too.

  138. Haakon
    | #138

    I love the Poseidon Undersea hotel. I can imagine that it would be very serene to watch the sea vegetation as it undulates back and forth from the underwater sea currents.

  139. anda
    | #139

    The tree house, in india.
    One of my ultimate dreams is to live in one of these.

  140. josh
    | #140

  153. becky
    | #153

    I love the under water one. I just love being in the water and I would love to just watch the fish swim by.

  154. | #154

    I absolutely love the underwater hotel in fiji - I would totally feel a bit uncomfortable thinking maybe a leak could spell trouble!

  155. Lysa
    | #155

    Lots of beautiful hotels- but honestly, who would spend money to stay in a Sewage Pipe or Prison Hotel?

  156. msvitale
    | #156

  157. Lorriah
    | #157

    Ok…I haven’t read all the comments, but is the sand one serious??? Is the bed literally sand? Do they cover it with sheets? Am I the only one concerned about this? haha

  160. Cj
    | #160

    Cave hotel in Turkey one of my favorite places in the world and the hotel is in Cappadocia and it’s a great place to see!

  161. david

  162. | #162

    A room inside a manila?
    Very futuristic, should be a little bothered, but you can spend the night.

  163. Bailey

    The sewage pipe gives me ideas for a quest house.

  182. | #182

    Poseidon Undersea Resort sounds pretty cool. Even though I’m afraid of water and being underneath it, I think it would be beautiful to stay there. Plus I would overcome my fear - two birds with one stone!

  183. | #183
