Sleeping in cars takes on a whole new meaning with a wacky twist for collector car themed rooms at a hotel in Germany for the auto-obsessed, where you’ll find anything from the classics, sports cars, a Mercedes-Benz car wash, 70′s Cadillac drive-in cinema, and even a Morris Minor garage — all cleverly designed with many original parts from the automotive world.
Located in the center of Stuttgart’s Meilenwerk — a German international hub for car dealers — the V8 Hotel is built inside the city’s first airport in Baden-Württemberg, where the hotel also has a suite built on 3 levels within the building’s former control tower.
For those with deep pockets, the top-of-the-line 120sqm Zeppelin Suite featuring a sauna, terrace and landscape views over the old airport grounds will set you back about $489 a night.
“Everybody wants to stay here when they come to the Meilenwerk.” said hotel employee Heike Petzold.
“It’s really amazing because even people who live in the area come here to stay for a night in the themed rooms.”
“It attracts everyone of all ages, from children to old age pensioners and of course businessmen during the week and families too.”
“All kinds of people come here, so it’s not just for car enthusiasts, but of course there are those that are interested in car history and the automobile industry’s connections to the region too.”
“We’ve even had a few celebrity guests, but I can’t say who they are as I’m not allowed.”
The 4-star hotel incorporates 34 themed rooms designed with chic details and antique accessories, and the car theme continues from the lobby through to the restaurant. There is plenty to rev the motor up by auto enthusiasts, travelers, and truckers alike.
