Your Chance to Spend the Night In an Abandoned Drain Pipe
In a park just outside of Linz, Austria, you'll find one of the world's most unusual hotels. Each of the "rooms" in Dasparkhotel was constructed from a piece of abandoned drain pipe. Artist Andreas Strauss oversaw the project, ensuring that each of the chambers was comfortable and stylish.
According to the hotel's website, the accomodations include: double bed, storage, light, power, woolly blanket and light cotton sleeping bag. All other facilities (toilets, showers, minibar, cafe, etc) are supplied by the surrounding public space.
The best thing about Daskparkhotel, however, may be the price. You just pay what you wish. Unfortunately, they're only open during the summer, so you might want to make your reservations now.
One of this blog's readers sent me this link, but I can't find the original comment! Sorry about that, dear reader, and thanks so much for the tip! (UPDATE: Thanks Nina aka Claire!)
