    Sala Silver Mine Hotel Sala, Sweden

    This hotel has only one room—The Mine Suite—situated in what used to be an operating silver mine.

    At 509 feet underground, it's the world´s deepest bedroom, and it feels like it: The cave contains winding galleries; huge, water-filled caverns; and full-on lakes. You'll want to bundle up for the guided tour of the cave (underground temps hover around 35 degrees) but the suite itself is comfy—it's heated, and the bed is piled with thick covers.

    Kokopelli's Cave Bed and Breakfast Farmington, New Mexico

    At your disposal once you check in: a waterfall shower, Jacuzzi, T.V., and (above-ground) views of the Four Corners states (Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, and Colorado).
