Now that places like crazy colorful hotels and their art-infused rooms exist, there鈥檚 really no going back to ordinary. Since it seems like there鈥檚 something for everyone these days 鈥 from聽must-visit foodie hotels聽to聽haunted Airbnbs聽鈥 creativity is becoming competition. These 10 unusual hotels give each other a run for their money, leaving us scratching our heads at聽some and immediately booking others.

Kakslauttanen arctic resort

1. Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort:聽If seeing the northern lights is on your bucket list, these igloos at this Finland resort are a must-stay. With the majority of the structure made of glass, they provide an unparalleled view of the swirling night sky. (Photo via Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort)

Magic Mountain Hotel

2. Magic Mountain Lodge:聽In the heart of the Chilean Patagonian Rainforest at the Huilo Huilo nature reserve, these lodgings are as far from industrial as you can get. The reserve is an incredible聽utopia of architecture inspired by the surroundings, with running rivers and wandering geese very much included. (Photo via Huilo Huilo)

Amsterdam Zaandam

3. Amsterdam Zaandam:聽For a hotel that looks like it鈥檚 straight out of Willy Wonka鈥檚 factory, check out the Zaandam in the Netherlands. It鈥檚 a hodgepodge of traditional-style houses, stacked together with an aesthetic similar to a kid鈥檚 building blocks creation. (Photo via Inntel Hotels)

hobbit hotel

4. The Hobbit Motel:聽Any true Lord of the Rings fan has to jump at the opportunity to stay in hobbit-style housing, especially in New Zealand, where the movies were filmed. These motel abodes, along with the other quirky constructions nearby (a plane, a train and a ship!), are very literally the stuff of fiction. (Photo via聽Woodlyn Park)

5. Crazy House:聽Though this one won鈥檛 be ready until 2020, we鈥檙e marking our calendars. This Vietnamese guesthouse (previously referred to as Hang Nga Villa) is part nature, part surrealist architecture 鈥 and entirely awesome. (Photo via Crazy House)

Palacio de Sal

6. Palacio de Sal:聽They actually ask you not to lick the walls鈥 because they鈥檙e made completely of salt. Walls, ceilings, tables 鈥 everything. It makes sense for a hotel located in the salt flats of Uyuni, Bolivia, but it still blows our minds. (Photo via Palacio de Sal)

panda

7. Panda Inn:聽This. Can鈥檛. Be. Real. Apparently anything goes in China, including a hotel with a fully committed panda theme. It would be cute if the staff didn鈥檛 also dress as pandas 鈥 kinda creepy. (Photo via聽AFP/Getty)

Tree hotel

8. Tree Hotel:聽With room names like the Mirrorcube, the UFO and the Bird鈥檚 Nest, it鈥檚 not really surprising that this hotel in Sweden made the cut for our weird list. Each bizarre room is built within the trees and accessed by ladders at least 13 feet tall to really get your feet off the ground. (Photo via Tree Hotel)

Hotel Jested

9. Hotel Jested:聽Straight out of the 1960s, this active hotel and national cultural monument sits atop a prestigious mountain in the Czech Republic. All architectural significance aside, we can鈥檛 decide if it looks more like a futuristic Hershey鈥檚 kiss or a discarded space craft. Either way, you鈥檒l feel like you鈥檙e in a James Bond movie while staying here. (Photo via Jested)

All-About-Melody854x854

10. Free Spirit Spheres:聽These giant, eyeball-looking rooms are obviously part of the globally popular movement toward nature escapes, but these wacky hanging globes especially caught our attention. A Vancouver-based architect creates each one by hand, and suspends them himself for maximum nature viewing 鈥 a free spirit鈥檚 paradise. (Photo via Free Spirit Spheres)
