The Directory of Unusual Places to Stay is a directory of unusual accommodation. We bring together 1000s of amazing places to stay in one place so you can find that perfect getaway for you. We do not get involved in the booking process ourselves but instead pass you on to the owners to book direct with them or to TripAdvisor or a booking agent.  Use the yellow and purple links on each page to take you to a contact form / availability calendars / or a Property Owners or agents website / booking service. 

If selecting from Low / Medium / High budgets the price guidelines are for 2 people for 1 night. We feature unique budget accommodation to top end luxury design hotels - and everything inbetween.

Low Budget - up to £100

Medium Budget -  up to £250  /  €280  /  US$310   

High Budget -        anything higher
