New "concrete tube" hotel in Austria

Date: 6 August 2011

A brand new hotel in Austria, the Dasparkhotel, is offering guests some of the most unusual lodgings we have come across - guests can stay in a converted concrete pipe which contains a double bed, a round door at one end and a window at the other.


The pipes are reported to be surprisingly comfortable, with ample headroom, storage space, electricity and a warm blanket. 

The hotel is offering accommodation on a "pay as you wish" basis, making it an attractive option for budget travellers, backpackers and travellers looking for a quirky holiday experience.
