Stay in a Bubble-Bungalow

Stay in a Bubble-Bungalow

A housing bubble eventually brings about an economic collapse. But an unusual hotel bubble? Now that’s just cool.

So it is at the Museumotel in northwest France.

museumotel s Stay in a Bubble Bungalow follow me on pinterest button Stay in a Bubble Bungalow The Museummotel’s complex is located on an island and are part Smurf village, part spaceship pod and part Andy Warhol gallery.

The nine bubble-bungalow units here were originally constructed in the late-1960s as an attempt to create practical, cheap housing. Today, it looks a little like it has been since the late-1960s that anyone has updated the furnishings or peacenik art.

Fortunately, another part of the original intent of the Museumotel complex survives as well—staying here is cheap (by France standards). A self-standing bubble-bungalow with en suite bathroom and internet access can be yours for a little as €55 per person per night. Spot Cool Stuff suggests staying in The Orange Bubble, which is a little larger than the others and has two large windows looking out over the river.

Many of the bubble-bungalows are rented out for weeks (and even months) at a time, so make reservations well in advance. Even if you aren’t staying here it is worth stopping by for a drink or bite to eat at the Museumotel’s bar and cafe.
