Tired of the same boring hotels? Me too… And there are plenty of weird hotels around the world that could provide for any tourist a more interesting and special accommodation. Some of them are finished and just waiting for you, others are projects or in construction. But all of them are amazing…
World’s first hotel made of key cards
The world’s first hotel made entirely of key cards has been unveiled in New York. The 37-square-metre hotel was made from more than 200,000 key cards and weighs 1814kgs.
The design was created by Holiday Inn, the world’s largest hotel group, to mark the relaunch of 1200 of its hotels around the world. (source)
Ice Hotel – Sweden
The Icehotel in the village of Jukkasjärvi, about 17 km from Kiruna, Sweden, erected each year from December to April, was the world's first ice hotel, first opening in 1990. (source)
Every year the ice hotel is redesigned. All of the furniture, from the chairs to the bedroom furniture are carved from ice. Due to the extreme cold weather, guests wear beaver nylon jumpsuits to protect them from the elements. A unique experience to be sure. This hotel books up very quickly as you can imagine. (source)
The First Garbage Hotel In The World
Designer H.A. Schult has designed the world’s first hotel made entirely of garbage in Rome. The walls are constructed using the masses of debris that are found on the beaches of Europe. The hotel is part of a publicity campaign by the environmental group Save The Beach, to draw attention to the problem of pollution on the coastline.
The doors of this bizarre hotel, made of garbage, have opened to the public, last week, in Rome and has already received the support of various celebrities, like Helena Christensen, the famous model, who agreed to spend a night in the Save the Beach Hotel. (source)

Child Friendly Treehouses in Eastern Germany.
Choose one of 5 cosy tree houses situated 8m to 10m up a tree in a fantastic recreational park outside Görlitz. First open in June 2005, it is arguable whether it is the first tree house hotel in Germany or the craziest.
These 2 storey dwellings are furnished in a crazed rustic style, with brightly coloured walls and off-angle windows and are sure to entertain. Odd shaped beds are the norm here as you won’t find any straight walls. Each tree house contains an ‘emergency toilet’, but if only for the sake of the cleaners, a central toilet block is provided on one of the lower decks with running water. The central area also contains a particularly German addition – a mini bar filled with beer ready for evening guest celebrations. (source)
Exploranter – Overland Hotel
A hotel on wheels that tours the South America.
Exploranter is a mobile hotel, fully equipped with industrial kitchen, hot showers, 30 leather seats, 28 beds and lots of mobility.
Exploranter is a Hotel on Wheels.
The highlight is the human atmosphere in trips. Surrounded by the most amazing landscapes, guests make friends and live an unforgettable experience. The Exploranter team goal is to tease guest senses.
Trips range from 1 week routes to 22 days expeditions.
Bizarrely, this moving hotel means that you probably travel less than if you were staying in a traditional hotel as you don't need to move around yourself to see different sites - you stay right at the sites themselves! Equally, your itinerary can span natural rather than national borders, say to see both Chilean and Argentiniean Patagonia on the same trip. Trips through the Pantanal conservation area (the world's largest freshwater wetland) average around 800 km in a week, in Patagonia they drive 1,200 km in twelve days. The longest drives cover around 200 km a day, but still showcase the best of each region. (source)
