This hotel looks incredible! This is the TuboHotel in Mexico.
There is a growing movement for eco holidays and eco hotels using recycled materials and this one fits the bill nicely.
This hotel situated outside the village of Tepozltan, about one hour from Mexico City is built entirely from recycled concrete pipes generally used for building sewage tunnels.
There are 20 rooms made from nine-foot-long industrial tubes which are each fitted with a queen sized bed, a night-lamp, fan and storage inside. They are pretty basic as there are no toilets in the tubes, guests share toilets found in a dedicated toilet block.
Even though the hotel recommend two people per pipe they will allow you to have as many people in them as long as you can fit comfortably.
They may be basic but they look pretty luxurious with the glass fronts and the way they are constructed.
Hotel owner Robb Anderson stumbled upon the pipes by chance, he said
‘The tubes were just lying there doing nothing so one day we asked if we could use them, they said yes so we decided to make a hotel,’
Construction of the TuboHotel took three months to build and Mr Anderson says he is proud to offer a unique experience.
‘Our market is more the traveller and hostel style but we have all sorts of people coming here because it is so unusual.’
