Jumbo Jet Hotel

By Hollie Wicks

We know life can be tough. Sometimes all you want to do is pack up your things and take a long vacation. Well, what’s stopping you? We’ve hunted high and low for the crème de la crème of eco-friendly hotels across the globe…

Hotel Arlanda: The Jumbo Jet Hostel in Stockholm, Sweden
Ever fancied getting a bit naughty on an airplane but don’t fancy cramming yourself into an tiny, awkward toilet that’s been used by a load of your sweaty fellow passengers? Well, Hotel Arlanda might just be your ticket to a bit of mile high fun. The now retired jumbo jet houses 25 separate rooms, each kitted out with a flat screen TV, comfy beds and wireless broadband.

You can even opt to spent a night in the cockpit (oo-er) – an exclusive room with private bathroom.

Many of the original parts of the plane are still in place – the original first class seats and lounge bar are onboard so you can order light snacks and a few drinks in style. If you’re tightening the purse strings, you can even bring your own food and use their microwave ovens at your leisure.

New rooms are to be built soon in the engine compartments, where the original rotor blades will be used as ventilation.

Can’t picture it? Maybe our photo gallery will help…

GC articles show you one of four ways (the one in bold) to live greener…

/ Be a winner (not a binner) /
/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /

Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
