Spend The Night As A Hamster

NANTES, France (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The wheels are really turning at one hotel suite in Nantes, France.

Anyone who’s ever wondered what it’s like to be a hamster can find out by staying in a quirky new hotel flat dubbed the “Hamster Villa.”

The room contains everything that would be in a hamster cage, including a huge, working hamster wheel, shavings, and edible grains.

Architect Frederic Tabary co-designed the suite and says it’s just as comfortable as a house.

The wheel can be used as a gym – since walking on it is great exercise – or turned into a comfy sofa.

Tabary says there’s also a kitchen and bed in there, reached by climbing a ladder.

He figures hamsters remind people of their childhood, so it’s no wonder the suite is booked solid.

People have been lining up and shelling out $147 a night to lodge.

Tabary says sleeping there for just one night should give folks the “full experience.”
