Another eco-responsible hotel has sprouted up, but now 45 minutes south of Mexico City. Inspired by dasparkhotel which opened in Germany in 2006, the 20-room hotel called Tubohotel designed by architects T3arc has used waste material for construction. While dasparkhotel located in 2 parks in Austria and Germany set their accommodation in concrete pipes, Tubohotel has extended its concept by stacking pipes to form a second level accessed by a ladder. T3arc completed the

project in three months, furnishing the inside of the pipes with a queen-size bed, desk light, fan and 301 Moved Permanently under bed storage space. Unlike dasparkhotel which operates as a pay-as-you-wish system, Tubohotel’s premium features demand US$42 per night from budget travellers. The low price doesn’t allow for private bathroom facilities but there are two communal bathrooms onsite for guests.
