The strangest hotel in the world: it is impossible to stay there


You can't reserve rooms because you don't have them. The structure rises above a highway in Melbourne, Australia.

There is the building 20 meters high and the huge sign that reads: Hotel.

However, it is a very particular hotel,

in which it is impossible to stay. 

It is situated next to a highway on the outskirts of


, in the state of Victoria.

in Australia.

It is the EastLink Hotel but unlike others,

tourists are not allowed

in this one , or anyone really.

Because the EastLink Hotel

is not what it seems.

Designed by local artist Callum Morton, the (not) hotel opened in 2007 and

has confounded everyone ever since.

The strangest hotel in the world.

It's not as big as a high-rise hotel: it's 20 meters high, 12 meters wide and 5 meters thick, but going past it at high speed for the first time is really hard to tell, so it's not surprising that

the people actually look it up on the internet and call to reserve a room.

To make it even more confusing, at night some of the windows are lit up making it look like

some of the rooms are occupied.

But there are no rooms

, and you can't enter the building itself, because the whole thing is a sculpture designed solely for ornamental purposes.

“Motors will see it from the car

as a real hotel

and perhaps in time as an oddly scaled accessory that has escaped from a theme park or movie set,” artist Morton described the concept for this project.

The strangest hotel in the world.

Now, nearly two decades later,

his creation still plays on

people's minds as they pass through the motorway, also called EastLink, in Melbourne's Dandenong suburb.

At first, the large rectangular building with a big red "HOTEL" sign on top looks pretty normal, but then it's not as

imposing as it's supposed to be

and it's located in the middle of a barren field. , and that's when things start to get confusing.

But that's

all by design.

“I think it's interesting how to put something in a space that's a little seductive or a little weird, how that

maybe changes the way people think about art

or practice,” Callum Morton said of his unique artwork. .

Even EastLink Hotel even

has its own website

(, although, of course, you can't book a room, it only offers more information about it.
