Accommodations count a lot for any adventurous traveler in Europe. Whether ready to splurge or set for a budget backpacker's trip, there are countless places to stay in.

While many prefer the conventional bed in a simple room with basic amenities, offbeat travelers who prefer something less ordinary will find some of the world's weirdest hotels in Europe.

Here are some of the continent's top picks.

1. Jumbo Stay (Stockholm)

If travelers fancy sleeping on a plane, then Jumbo Stay is the right choice. The hotel is designed after the 1976 Boeing 747 and has 27 bedrooms, ranging from the most luxurious cockpit suites to the modest cost-friendly dormitories.

Amenities also range from shared bathrooms to private bathrooms with complete features any luxury traveler will enjoy. Boasting of modern plane interior, it's any aviation enthusiast's dream come true.

2. Le Carré Rouge (Haute Marne)

In a place called Haut Marne in France, there is a place called Le Carré Rouge, where modern architecture meets eco living. Nestled beside Langres plateau and carefully tucked away from everything urban, Le Carré Rouge or the red cube house is a 'useful sculpture' created by Gloria Friedmann.

With one side of the square house painted red and the North-side graced with a full glass exterior, this is truly a unique accommodation. Besides the extraordinary architecture and design, the hotel also doesn't have running water or electricity. There are candles, oil lamps and a woodstove available.

This is perfect for those who want to escape the world on a romantic getaway.

3. La Villa Cheminée (Nantes)

Another place in France called La Villa Cheminée is a surreal accommodation that was initially crafted as an installation art by Tatzu Nishi back back in 2009 as part of the Estuaire Nantes Saint-Nazaire art festival.

A house that sits on top of a factory smokestack, La Villa Cheminée offers a double bedroom and kitchen as well as all the other basic amenities overseas accommodations have.

A quaint and warm home complete with its own chimney, the place is definitely a must for those who want to defy reality.
