Weirdness is liked, because it stands out, because it surprises and because being part of it makes us feel special. That’s why, with almost 200.000 hotels in the world, being different is an advantage and the unusual hotels in the world know it very well. 

We can find strange hotels in many parts of the world. Hotels that surprise by their originality or their shape. Sleeping in a capsule suspended in the middle of the mountain, resting on a bed that smells of cocoa or enjoying a luxury building made of salt, is now possible thanks to the creativity of hotel entrepreneurs. Do you want to know some of the unusual hotels in the world? Here is our selection for you to start dreaming again with the idea of traveling. 

Palacio de Sal Hotel

This luxury hotel located in Bolivia, is built with salt. Its entire structure is made of this material, walls, floors, ceilings, chairs, tables, beds… It is impossible not to arouse your curiosity, if we also tell you that it has a golf course made of salt. Sustainable and original, what more could you ask for?

The Magic Mountain 

This hotel completely surrounded by vegetation is located in the Huilo Huilo Biological Reserve in the Chilean Andes. It is a vertical hotel that resembles a mountain or a volcano, and at the top has a waterfall. A spectacle to behold that makes you immerse yourself in a fairytale environment. 

Svinoy Lighthouse

Svinoy is a remote uninhabited island in Norway. The surprising thing is that its lighthouse, which since 2005 works in an automated way, houses one of the most striking hotels in the world. It can only be reached by helicopter four times a year. A unique experience, which also allows you to sleep in the middle of the sea surrounded by the spectacular Norwegian landscape. 

Crane Hotel 

The Crane Hotel, in Amsterdam, is a dock crane that has been renovated to become a hotel, but a luxury one! It has three suites, a swimming pool with spa and spectacular views. Simply amazing. 

Kaklauttanen Hotel

This hotel located in Finland stands out for its subway rooms from which, thanks to its large window, you can see the aurora borealis and the stars. Originality in its structure but also the possibility of enjoying one of the most spectacular natural events in the world. 

The Manta Resort

In Zanzibar, this hotel in the middle of the sea is like sleeping on a completely isolated and remote island in the ocean. What we like most? It has a room submerged under the ocean waters.

Langholmen Hotel 

If you’re a fan of Prison Break or Orange is the new black, you’ll love this Swedish hotel. It’s a former prison in Stockholm that has transformed its cells into rooms. 

Marqués de Riscal Hotel

The only hotel designed by architect Frank Gerhy is in Spain, specifically in Alava and has the same style based on the parametric architecture of his eponymous work, the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao.

Skylodge in the Andes 

The cliffs of the Peruvian Andes are impressive, so imagine sleeping in an aluminum and polycarbonate capsule suspended in them. For the most daring travelers who would give everything to see a spectacular starry night from the heights. 

Chocolate Boutique Hotel 

In Bournemouth, in the south of England, those with a sweet tooth can enjoy this hotel where everything, down to the smallest detail, reminds, tastes or smells of chocolate. A total pleasure for the senses. This city in the south of England has the dream hotel for chocolate lovers. 

We will still have to wait a bit to be able to enjoy these wonderful unusual hotels but dreaming is something that can never be taken away from us.
