12 Space-Themed Hotels Right Here on Earth

For many people, a luxury hotel room is a perfect option while they travel. With multiple shower heads, plush bathrobes, and a stocked minibar, they’re set for the night.

For those of us who dream of being among the stars as those same stars wheel overhead, we want something a little different when we travel. We want The MartianInterstellar, or another space movie streaming and astronaut ice cream must on the room service menu. We definitely want our hotel room to have completely out-of-this-world design elements — if not complete aesthetic commitment.

While we wait for space tourism to get a bit more affordable, there are some incredible space-themed hotels (or at least hotels with a space-themed room!) across the globe where you can enjoy a night or two of otherworldly relaxation and comfort. Way more plush than the sleep options in space, here are a dozen of the best space-themed hotels, rooms, and suites you can book right now.

1. Barceló Sants, Barcelona, Spain

From the outside, you would never guess that the Barceló Sants holds any special interest to space-minded travelers. Inside, you’ll feel as though you’ve stepped into the International Space Station. Clean, white, bright design elements define the entire hotel — from the lobby to rooms — as well as nods to famous space experiences like Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey.

‘Orbital’ rooms at Barceló Sants start from $167 per night; book on Booking.com or Hotels.com.

2. Fantasyland Hotel, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

As the name suggests, Fantasyland Hotel in Edmonton, Alberta offers rooms in a variety of themes, but the best by far is obviously their space-themed room. Who needs windows when you can look out over the surface of a foreign planet, and sleep beneath a celestial view? You can also spend time floating in the in-room jacuzzi tub, getting a little sense for microgravity without leaving the planet.

Rooms at Fantasyland Hotel start from $165 per night; book on Booking.com or Hotels.com.

3. Futuro House, Joshua Tree, California, USA

Blending glamping and space science, this Futuro House is the closest you’ll be to boarding a flying saucer. Future Houses were designed by Matti Suuronen and became popular in the 1960s and 1970s for their resemblance to flying saucers.

There are only 85 Futuro Houses left in the world and the one tucked away in Joshua Tree is currently available to guests as an Airbnb. The interior also plays with the space theme, boasting retro-futuristic furniture and décor. 

The Futuro House starts from $349 per night; book on Airbnb.

4. Galaxy Pod Hostel, Reykjavik, Iceland

While I’m not a fan of hostels generally since I like my own space, we probably won’t get a whole hotel room to ourselves aboard early spaceships. Galaxy Pod Hostel gives you a glimpse of that future accommodation. You can choose a sleep pod in the 4-, 6-, 8-, or 24-bed dorm. Then crawl into your pod, slide the door shut, and slip off into space-filled dreams.

Unfortunately, Galaxy Pod Hostel is temporarily closed for major renovations. Bookings are not currently available for any date in the future at the moment. 

5. Gold Coast Hotel, Hong Kong

Quite possibly the most immersive hotel option on this list, the Space Odyssey suite at Sunset Inn & Suites in Illinois is 100% committed to the theme. From a custom bed to complete lighting and stars on every wall (and the ceiling, of course)… it doesn’t get much more outer space-themed on this planet. (They also have other fantasy suites if you decide you want to come back to Earth and have a few other adventures.)
