Notel Melbourne 4215

James Fry is a parking garage magnate in Australia's coastal city of Melbourne.

His latest project, Notel, takes one of his structures to the next level. Six shiny Airstream trailers sit on top of a transformed garage space. Guests can rent a trailer for $395 a night.

Take a look inside this non-traditional hotel.

James Fry has run the three-level garage on Harper's Lane for a decade. The idea for transforming the roof into a hotel came to him after a few beers with friends up there.



Fry, pictured, landed on the name "Notel" because it makes it clear that the parking lot is not your typical resort.

Fry rescued the retro Airstream trailers from a Santa Barbara, California, company for $70,000 each. He completely gutted them.
