Budget Travel just published a roundup of the World’s Weirdest Hotels (the 2010 list – you read the 2008 list here and the 2009 list here). The list includes Palacio de Sal, a hotel made entirely out of salt in the expansive salt-flats of Bolivia, Hotel Utter Inn, a hotel room that’s 10 feet underwater in a lake in Sweden, and La Villa Hamster, which features a hotel room modelled after a hamster cage in France, which includes a water fountain that comes through a tube in the wall.
If those aren’t weird enough for you, how about sleeping inside a giant beer can in Denmark? Or bedding down in a circular pod suspended in the trees of Vancouver Island? My favourite has to be the Hotel Kakslauttanen (pictured above) in Northern Finland, where you can sleep in a glass igloo, offering a complete view of the Northern Lights from the comfort of your bed (complete with zebra-striped bedding).
