Elvis fans can now sleep like a king ...

Because the king of rock 'n' roll's childhood apartment in his hometown of Memphis, Tennessee, is available for overnight stays.

The complex - at 328 Lauderdale Courts - is reportedly the only Elvis-owned house in the world offered to fans in this capacity.

The two-bedroom apartment, which was one of America's first public housing projects, has since been restored to its original state.

The space, something of a 1950s time capsule, has a spacious living room complete with a stack of classic Elvis movies.

The kitchen has an authentic refrigerator from the '50s and a recipe card dedicated to the star's favourite fried peanut butter, banana and jelly sandwiches.

Elvis' bedroom, the larger of the two, has a wall dedicated to lipstick kisses with a sign that reads, "Kisses Only Please No Writing."

The kisses have accumulated on the wall over the years thanks to $10 tours of the property, which take place during Elvis' birth week in January and his death week in August.

His bed comes furnished with a guitar — so that guests can practice their strumming skills.

The home is embellished with Elvis references and memorabilia, including old family photos, hair pomade and a copy of the singer's Humes High School yearbook.

A one-night stay in the apartment will cost US$250.
