The 7 Strangest Hotel Rooms On Earth

We've covered a few wild hotel rooms and even a few hotels that are totally unique, but there are a surprisingly high number of strange places to sleep on vacation. Here are a few of the oddest and coolest hotel rooms you could ever hope to book.

1. The Batcave

At some point or another, practically everyone has wished they could be Batman or at least like they could live like Bruce Wayne. Now, thanks to the Eden Motel, you can take your fantasy one step closer to reality by renting out the Batman room. The hotel is what's known as a love hotel, so expect to pay by the hour if you decide to indulge in your Bat fantasies.

2. The Glass-Bottom Hotel Room

Bali is filled with beautiful scenery and the hotels in the area take full advantage of this fact. Even so, only the Udang House offers a tempered glass floor built above a pond, offering amazing views of the crystal blue water and the beautiful fish that call the pond home. If that wasn't enough to make you feel at one with nature, the bathroom features a glass roof that lets in natural light and lets guests enjoy an indoor space under the stars.

3. The 727 Suite

Costa Verde, located in the west of Costa Rica, features some pretty notable rooms, but it's hard to top the Boeing 727 that has been converted into a two-bedroom, two-bathroom hotel suite. Perched on a 50 foot pedestal to give the extra illusion of flying, guests are also treated to incredible 360 views of the surrounding scenery.

4. The Train Suite

Wish you were around to see the luxury of the golden days of rail but get motion sickness on moving trains? Then head to New Zealand where Woodly Park offers a Train Motel, with one master bedroom and three singles in the main car section. While you might not be able to check out the passing cities and towns, the car is planted right in the middle of a farm, so you'll still have plenty of natural beauty and livestock to enjoy.

5. The Caveman Room

The Madonna Inn of San Luis Obispo is well known for their fun theme rooms, but the most talked about, and oddest, room is the Caveman Room, which features rock walls and animal-patterned furniture. The bathroom shower drips from the rocks on the ceiling. It's the most luxurious way you could hope to get back to your primal nature.

6. The Cave Room

This one-room hotel at Kokopelli’s Cave was carved from the cliffs of a New Mexican mountain and sits 70 feet below surface level. To enter the underground hotel, you must first sign a liability waiver because entrance requires you to climb down a cliff and a ladder to enter. Of course, even above the mountain top, you're still quite a way above ground, 300 feet to be exact, which means you'll have some pretty incredible views of the local scenery.

7. The Private Island

You might not be able to afford your own private island, but you can rent a miniature man-made one if you'd like. At Sweden's Utter Inn, you can rent an underwater hotel room that looks like nothing more than a floating red outhouse from outside. After you're dropped off at the space by your guide, you're left completely isolated until check out time - unless your order the deluxe package, which includes a dinner delivery to your small island paradise.
