Travel: Das Park Hotel, Austria
Live in a Drainpipe!
Actually more like cabins than an actual hotel, the accommodation consists of three sections of big concrete pipe (see photos!) which make very cool minimalist accomodation. Toilets are close by and restaurants and such are a fifteen minute walk away, or you could cook your own meals in the park.
They are situated in a park beside the Danube river in Ottensheim which is close to historic Linz. They are currently open between May and October.
Booking is done through a web interface ( www.dasparkhotel.net ) and you are sent the door code. Payment is what you think is fair. This works quite well apparently and most people pay between 7 and 20 Euros. Some people even leave little presents.
Nifty idea. Cool execution.
