The Lookout Tower is an appropriately named but highly creatively designed observation tower put together by Hungarian architectural practice Nartarchitects.

This unusual tower is situated on a mountain range in Galyateto. It is equipped with a trio of shelters that offer refuge for hikers, seeing as how it's located very close to a highly popular hiking route. Visitors can access the shelters via a steel staircase that goes all the way up to the roof. Rooms are accessed through nifty circular hatches, and offer sleeping room for up to six people. Visitors have to pay a small fee of around $7.70 a night.

Ultimately, the Lookout Tower's digs are rather spartan, but for weary hikers navigating the tricky mountains of Galyateto, they might come to represent the greatest of luxury accommodations.
