Spice Girls fans can now stay in the original Spice Bus from the 1997 movie “Spice World” in London.
It’s time to spice up your life, really.
Spice Girls fans can now stay in the original Spice Bus from the 1997 movie “Spice World” for a limited time in June – just in time for the highly-anticipated Spice Girls tour stop in Wembley Stadium in London.
Suzanne Godley, a Spice Girls megafan, listed the bus on Airbnb.
“The Spice Girls were my childhood obsession,” Godley said in a statement. “My parents were subjected to my tone-deaf performances as Baby Spice, and I must have watched the Spice World movie hundreds of times. And while I have grown up over the years, I don’t think I’ve ever grown out of my love for them.”
When Godley’s boss told her he was considering buying the Spice Bus, she wanted to be part of the renovation process.
“We’ve worked hard over the past few months to turn the bus into a home, in keeping with its legacy, and I’m so excited to open it up to the public with the support of Airbnb,” she added.
The bus will be located in the Wembley Park area of London and will be available to book for June 14 and 15 for roughly $127 per night, starting May 22 at 8 a.m. local time. It features “pink Union Jack cinema chairs below a ‘Girl Power’ neon light installation, and is fully stocked with vintage ’90s magazines and CDs.
Only three guests will be able to stay at a time, and no pets are allowed. Guests are required to don ’90s-era clothing (yes, double denim is allowed) and selfies in the driver’s seat are encouraged. The space includes one single bed and one double bed.
“I’m a huge fan of the band and have tried to include as many little touches as possible inspired by the girls and their music, to make the inside just as iconic as the outside!” Godley wrote in the listing. “Inside, guests will have the run of both floors, which have been lovingly renovated with little nods to each of the Spice Girls and some fairly bold interiors.”
As for some caveats: The bus doesn’t include Wi-Fi, and guests will only be able to use a temporary bathroom (the bus itself doesn’t include one). It includes a number of steps and is not handicap-accessible.
“I’m looking for guests who share my love of the Spice Girls, have a verified Airbnb profile and have great reviews,” she wrote in the listing.
