"We all live in a yellow submarine," sang The Beatles. And, while that might not be entirely accurate, fans of the Fab Four can now at least spend the night in one.

The 80-foot hotel, housed in a narrowboat, is the work of businessman Alfie Bubbles, and was opened Sunday, according to Click Liverpool. Bubbles, who is apparently not a Beatles fan, purchased the boat from Paramount, which used it in the film "The Hunt For Red October."

The submarine, which accommodates eight, features a a psychedelic lounge with an original scooter from the film Quadrophenia. It's also outfitted with 3D TVs and wireless internet.

Rates for the hotel are £149 ($230) per night Monday through Thursday, £299 ($462) on Friday and £350 ($541) on Saturday.

Bubbles hopes to tackle "Titanic" and "Pirates of the Caribbean" themes next.

Beatles fans can also take a trip to the band's former Ashram in India.
