The Weirdest Hotel Rooms In The World

My partner and I are currently on the look out for our first home. As we were scrolling through a plethora of potential homes, a triangle-shaped building caught my eye! ‘Oh my gosh, I want to live in a triangle!’ I exclaimed. He rolled his eyes, let out a laugh and kept scrolling down the list. ‘I guess it’s all a matter of taste’, my mind muttered at me, taunting me for my arty-farty views on bizarre architecture.

If you’ve stumbled across this page, I could bet my bottom dollar that you are a fan of bizarre and artistic architecture too! Today’s your lucky day, I’ve searched far and wide to bring you the weirdest hotel rooms in the world.

Although these strange structures may look like igloos, they are actually hotel rooms. Hotel Kakslauttanen in Norway consists of glass igloos that seem to float amongst the snow. They are made for 360 degree views of the Aurora Borealis.

Although the icy exterior may give you goosebumps, the inside is a snuggly, boho den. The neutral palette with metallic patterns and mixed textures is super warm and welcoming.

The Banarsi Style

The Cube Room


I promise you now that this is not photo shopped! This Swedish tree hotel is quite literally a mirrored box that hangs in the middle of the forest.  As well as being the dictionary definition of minimalism, it’s also 100% eco friendly. How Swedish!

Ice Hotel

Ah… Sweden, you are proving yourself to be hard to beat when it comes to weird hotel rooms! This ice hotel is literally made of ice and is fed by a nearby river. Those sculpted ice walls are unreal! However, the only warming part of this room is that luscious, vermilion bedding.
