This is the world’s deepest bedroom. Sweden’s historic Sala Silvermine hotel offers a room that is 155 meters below the ground. It is one of the World’s best preserved mine settings. Experience the dark winding galleries, massive caverns and magic lakes. The underground setting is out of this world. Be careful to take warm clothes though, as the bathrooms are only 2 degrees Celsius!
2) Holiday Out Hotel
The holiday out hotel has been specially made to accommodate the vast amount of spectators of the 2012 Olympics held in London. The hotel rooms are suspended tents located very close to the Olympic Park site in the Wick Community Woodland. While it won’t provide 5 Star accommodations, it will certainly be an experience and a great low-cost choice.
3) The Mirror Room

4) Ice Hotel
This beautiful hotel is perfect is you like cold temperatures. Situated in Sweden, the water from a river running near the hotel is used to create the hotel every year! It became as an igloo and is now the World’s largest hotel of ice and snow at about 5500 square metres.

This room is again found in the Propeller Island City Lodge. Designed by German artist Lars Stroschen, this room is made to alter the guest’s perceptions of the world by turning it completely upside down! It is outfitted with furnishings that hang from the ceiling. The guest’s sleep in comfortable “boxes” beneath the floorboards.
7) Sand Hotel
The world’s first sand hotel was constructed in 2008 on this English beach in Dorset. It weighs 1000 tons and costs just $21 a night. Guests can relax in one of the twin or double bedrooms while enjoying an unobstructed view of the night sky. The only problem is when you need to go the restroom…as there are none in this hotel. Moreover, it only lasts till it rains and is remade every year.

This unique hotel was launched in Eindhoven, The Netherlands in 2009. These folding hotel rooms are designed by Hubert von Heijden and can be rented to organizations that want to use the rooms for guests, staff or festival-employees.
