Destination Design: Tubohotel

Tubohotel is exactly what it sounds like – a hotel made of tubes.

Destination Design: Tubohotel

At Tubohotel, you book your own private giant concrete drainage tube, which includes a queen-sized bed, bedding, storage, curtains, and lighting.

Some are stacked in a pyramid shape. The tubes keep a pretty consistent temperature and even come with electrical outlets and WiFi. Surrounding the tubes is a more communal area with picnic tables, a pool, and barbecue areas where you can hang with the other guests. Located about 45 minutes south of Mexico City in the scenic area of Tepoztlan, Tubohotel takes full advantage of the beautiful surrounding mountain views. This one is a must-stay.
