World's Most Unusual Hotels: V8

V8 Hotel

V8 Hotel, Stuttgart, Germany

Found in the center of Stuttgart’s Meilenwerk, an international hub for car dealers, is the three-year-old V8 Hotel, an oasis for car lovers. The former Bauhaus-style, 1928 airport site–turned–four-star property (partners with the Porsche Museum and Mercedes-Benz) offers 34 magnificently and authentically decorated rooms and suites. Themed accommodations, such as a ’70s Cadillac drive-in cinema, a Mercedes-Benz car wash and a Morris Minor garage, are musts for those who adore all things automotive. The hotel also offers a house brewery, cooking school, restaurant and legend hall, which displays classic cars. There’s even a glass viewing box for collectors who want to show off their four-wheeled babies so envious onlookers can visually partake in the repair process. Keep the automotive theme in high gear by visiting the Porsche and Mercedes-Benz museums and touring the Mercedes-Benz factory. For a car-free experience, try the Kunstmuseum art museum and the Stuttgart Planetarium. Graf Zeppelin Platz, 71034 Böblingen; v8hotel.de; Room Rates: $170–$230; tower suite $580
