18 Cleverly Compact Hotels

From Boxed Bedding Hotels to Teeny Boutique Hotels

— June 27, 2013 — World
While some people prefer to choose travel lodgings that are spacious and luxurious in design, others may opt for something more simple and easy-going, which is why these cleverly compact hotels are perfectly suited to provide a place to rest without too many extra features.

While these unique hotel accommodations might seem a bit too teeny tiny for your taste, they provide an adequate amount of sleeping space necessary for a traveller to get in and out with just enough rest. Why pay extra for a bunch of lavish room features when you'll most likely only utilize the room for sleeping at night? From practical bunk bed hotels to temporary transit motels located at airports, these cleverly compact structures are making the experience of staying overnight something much more practical and cost-effective.
