Have you ever wondered what life might be like to your little hamster? What the world looks and feels like when running in a wheel? Looking out through a plastic wall to your slightly distorted face?
Well, now you can! There’s a hotel in the french city of Nantes that is designed to feel like a hamster’s habitat, named La Villa Hamster. It’s a unique concept and sure to draw a few quirky travelers as they make their way through France. The suites are hay stacks, the workout room is a giant running wheel, and your meals consist of grain.
The building dates back to the 18th century and the owners created this unusual hotel for those who want to see what it is like to live life as a hamster for a night. Visitors to the hotel receive a hamster mask when they check in and water is dispensed from tubes, similar to the drinking bottles that attach to hamster cages. If you don’t want to sleep in the haystack Hamster Villa, you can opt for a regular bed.
The next time you go to book a hotel after you make plans to visit France on your next vacation think about this hotel. Make your vacation even more adventurous by spending the night as a hamster and think about your own little furry guy and his plastic world of wheels, bubbles, and tubes.
