3 Quirky Hotels

One by the Five, in Paris.

You’ve chilled out in an ice hotel, slept in a jail, and holidayed in a tree house. What’s next? In Stockholm, entrepreneur Oscar Diös is redefining the term airport hotel with the Jumbo Hostel (doubles from $150), in a revamped 747-200 parked at the entrance to Arlanda International Airport. There are 25 pint-size rooms in the jumbo jet, each with a flat-screen TV; a Cockpit Suite (original flight controls included); and a retro orange-and-white café. • Set on a hill 190 miles from Bodrum, the cylindrical annex of Turkey’s Marmara Antalya (doubles from $165) actually revolves, giving all 24 rooms spectacular views of the Taurus Mountains, Turquoise Coast, and Antalya’s ancient cityscape. The building can turn 360 degrees in 22 hours or can be adjusted to complete the rotation in two hours. • Why go out when you can live it up at Paris’s One by the Five (suite from $1,350), an over-the-top, single-suite hotel with the vibe of a cabaret club? In addition to the red-velvet-draped lounge, this five-room complex includes his-and-hers boudoirs, a cantilevered king-size bed, and a 129-square-foot private dance floor—R&B sound tracks included.
