V8 Hotel im Meilenwerk
Boblingen, Germany
4 stars
A former airport hotel, the V8 Hotel has been restored to all things automobile, and boasts an attached Meilenwerk, an open air museum/garage where collectors store and service their most precious vehicles. Rooms have unique themes, like the Gas Station, which evokes a 1950s-era service facility; or Route 66, done up to reflect the famous, dusty stretch of sun-baked highway in America’s heartland. Every bed is an extra-long 2.1 meters and each one rests in the hulk of an old car, from a beat up old Mustang to a replica of Herbie the Love Bug.
Most OTT feature: The Tower Suite is a 90-sq.m space on 3 floors of the old airport control tower. It’s more like a private apartment and the rooftop terrace gives great views.
