If you are really trying to get away from it all, Russia appears to have the answer. The Russians are planning a space hotel to orbit 200 miles above Earth by 2016. The four-room Hotel in the Heavens can handle up to seven guests. Of course, Russian hotels are already known for a rather stripped down sense of accommodation. Yet, tourists might be a bit uneasy after the recent explosion of the Russian supply ship to the space station.
Sergei Kostenko, chief executive of Orbital Technologies, insists “a hotel should be comfortable, and this one will be.” The trip will cost £500,000 to travel on a Soyuz rocket to get to the hotel plus £100,000 for a five-day stay. Room service is limited and there is no late checkout.
Before booking, you might want to check Orbitz for the cheapest rate.
