"Vliegtuig Suite" - And Now For Something Totally Different

By
Real Estate Agent with Windermere Real Estate - Palm Springs CalBRE# 01339266

I love to travel and am always on the lookout for different and interesting travel experiences. While exploring the internet I recently stumbled across one of the most unusual "hotel suites" I've yet seen: A one-of-a-kind luxury hotel suite inside an old plane.

 

Vliegtuig Suite is a 1960's 120-seater East German government plane that had been completely refurbished and converted into a luxury hotel suite for two. Owned by a Dutch Company (Hotelsuites.nl), the plane is grounded at Teuge Airport in the Netherlands.

The "suite" includes a King-size bed, a full bathroom, jacuzzi, sauna, and a small kitchen.

According to their website the suite is available at a cost of about $500 a night (350 Euros).

 

Even though this "suite" looks so cool and comfortable, I'm trying to imagine why anyone would actually stay there?

That's an amazing find!  I'll bet there are plenty of aviation gurus who would love it!

Dagny - Apparently there's also 24-hour "attendant service".
