Although you might not be able to really live in a yellow submarine, as The Beatles once sang, you will be able to spend a night or two in one.
A floating hotel -- or a boatel, if you will -- painted to look like the band's famous yellow submarine, has come to port at Albert Dock in -- where else? -- Liverpool, England, reports the Daily Mail.
According to the Click Liverpool website, the 80-foot hotel opened on Sunday. Alfie Bubbles, a businessman with an apparent penchant for floating structures, owns the space. He was also the one who designed it, spending nine months to refurbish it appropriately. Despite the evidence to the contrary, however, Bubbles said he's "not a massive Beatles fan, to be honest"
Though the brightly colored, psychedelic walls in the lounge are very Beatles-esque, the submarine has an scooter on board that was used in the film Quadrophenia, a movie that was based off of a rock opera by The Who. The movie tie-ins continue, as Bubbles purchased a vessel that had originally been used in The Hunt for Red October.
The narrowboat has three bedrooms and room for eight people. Guests enjoy wireless internet and 3D televisions in their rooms. The price for such accomodations is £149 ($230) per night Monday through Thursday, £299 ($462) on Friday and £350 ($541) on Saturday.
Bubbles hopes to tackle Titanic and Pirates of the Caribbean themes next. He also owns a floating Batman-themed hotel he calls The Joker.
