This hotel is "located" in San Paolo, Brazil...and "located" is in quotations simple because this is one hotel that doesn't remain in only one place. Although it stays in the area for those visiting Brazil, it's a hotel that's really a bus on wheels so it goes all over the place so visitors can feel just like rock starts traveling in these classy, moving accommodations. The hotel and wheels has 28 beds, which require guests to stay in accommodations similar to a hostel, but there is a kitchen, hot showers, and plenty of sets; plus, everyday you wake up in the Exploranter Overland Hotel, it's a new adventure with a new place to explore.

For those that just can't remain high enough in their accommodations, there's another tree house style hotel, but this one's located in Sweden. It's among the smallest hotels in the world, and the accommodations are unique but quaint.  The only way to access the hotel 13 meters up a tree is by a sturdy rope ladder, and once at the top there's a great view of a public park in Sweden.

#2 Strange & Unique Hotel: Switzerland's Whitepod Hotel
