Car themed hotel with Mercedes, Morris Minor and VW bedrooms
Part of the Meilenwerk classic car restoration complex on the old Zeppelin airfield near Böblingen, 10 of the 34 car themed rooms have had extreme makeovers to allow you to sleep in a Mercedes, Morris Minor, Cadillac or Volkswagen.
Partnered by the Porsche Museum and Mercedes Benz, car enthusiasts, collectors and restoration specialists gather together to enjoy heritage motor vehicles on display in the Legend Hall of the main event building. Collectors of classic cars may even park their car in glass viewing boxes, so that others can see the repair and servicing taking place.
The top suite occupies the once control tower of the airfield and the V8 hotel itself occupies the original Bauhaus-style (1928) airport hotel building, now completely restored and updated as a listed building in its own right.
Petrol Head Heaven - with Dreams to match !
There are 10 styled theme rooms, singles, doubles, plus a family room and the spacious Zeppelin suite, with a fantastic panoramic view. The 24 standard rooms have some great wall photography but the theme rooms really take the automotive element to a new level.
Perhaps you wish for the luxury of sleeping in a converted white Mercedes bed – bright and polished from the carwash? Maybe airbrushed custom paintwork and chrome is more your style in the Tuning bedroom? Or the 53 Beetle Herbie parked up as a bed in the Petrol Station room?
A Cadillac bed and artwork themed around the drive-in cinemas of the 50’s and 60’s, or a room themed for the outdoors, in V8 Camp?
While everyone will have a favourite, the Morris Minor car bed in the ‘Workshop’ room – complete with mechanic under the car, deserves special mention. Your bed is hoisted on lifting jacks, and your bedside table a drum of oil. A mechanics workbench your writing desk.
Also the Zeppelin suite – with bathroom including a private sauna, bedrooms and lounge split across 4 floors of the old Control Tower, including a roof terrace at the top. While all rooms echo the clean crisp lines of this period of architecture, the interior detail is certain to raise a smile among petrol-heads and car-aficionados everywhere.
Rates are from €150 for the double rooms, €170 for the theme rooms and the Zeppelin suite €450.
The hotel is a 5 minute walk from Böblingen S-Bahn rail station on line S1, which connects to the S2 and S3 lines if you’re visiting one of the many trade shows in Sindlefingen or arriving at Stuttgart airport. For cars, from the A81, take exit 23 Böblingen / Sindelfingen and drive at the 1st Traffic light turn right in direction of Böblingen. Now, turn right onto Graf-Zeppelin-Platz. Hotel V8 Meilenwerk Stuttgart is located on your left.
The hotel organises a number of car themed events and show throughout the year, using the next door "Legend Hall".
Stuttgart is also the home to the Porsche and Mercedes Museums, with their tours.
