Where do car aficionados go for on vacation? The V8 Hotel in Germany is open and revving to go, offering patrons a place to rest their heads – on everything from a Morris-Minor to a Mercedes.
The Meilenwerk, also know as the V8 Hotel – gives car lovers the perfect accommodations for the auto obsessed among us. Built inside the city’s old Boblingen Airport, this uber-cool hotel also has a suite built on three levels within the building’s former control tower. It features 34 rooms in total, and a handful of suites are spruced up with special themes that showcase some pretty wild décor. For example, the Zeppelin Suite featuring a sauna, terrace and landscape views over the old airport grounds.
You can also take one of the specialty car-furnished rooms for a test drive as well. Spend the night with a Cadillac or take the Mercedes-Benz through a car wash in another room. There’s even a Morris-Minor garage where you can spend the night.
“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,” says hotel employee Heike Petzold. “We’ve even had a few celebrity guests, but I can’t say who they are as I’m not allowed.”
Along with the trendy details and antique accessories used to decorate the rooms, some of them also feature original parts from the automotive world.
Room rates vary with season, but the popular Zeppelin Suite will set you back around $489 per night.
