Stay in a work of art at this out-there collection of installations. Sleep inside Amsterdam Tram 965 (in a king-size bed), cosy into a cute blue-and-white VW van, bed down behind a secret bookcase, escape the daily grind in the Crisis Free Zone framed by Transylvanian-inspired woodcarvings to deter evil spirits, or climb a ladder to a crow's nest.

Students from Eindhoven's Design Academy created the rooms. Kevin Bacon (the hotel's bar, named in homage to the actor) mixes rockin' cocktails to go with spicy Thai dishes.
