Sewage Pipe Hotel….

May 17, 2011 1 comment

I came across this fantastic idea recently..

It’s like camping, but instead of canvas, you get to sleep beneath concrete in the form of  large repurposed sewage pipes. Brilliant.

The site is near Linz in Austria and is called Dasparkhotel. Each room has an original art work on the back wall, there’s a small rooflight and storage for your stuff is under the bed. Showers, cafe and internet are provided via local public facilities in and around the park.

And if you’re wondering how much it costs to stay, this is a quote from their site…

“Because we obtain sanitation, breakfast and other hotel facilities from existing public infrastructure, it is possible for us to work with the very simple, user-friendly “pay as you wish” system. A night in dasparkhotel costs just as much as you can afford or want to pay.”

Even more brilliant. Surprisingly I’ve never been to Austria, so I’ll see you in Linz…
