Zero Star Hotel
Always wanted to stay in an air-raid shelter or military bunker? A new Swiss hotel, the Zero Star Hotel will let you do just that. If you’re used to 5-star luxury accommodations at a hotel, be prepared to lower your expectations when booking your place at the innovative Zero Star Hotel.
The military bunker transformed into a hotel can go back to its original roots at anytime, based on regulations set by Swiss law. So the accommodations are exactly what you’d expect in any military barracks; with bunk style beds in a hostel style room, and few beds for double accommodations. With no windows or heating, guests rely on a supply of hot water bottles for warmth at the Zero Star Hotel and a video feed from outside to get a room with a view. Expect little privacy as the Zero Star Hotel, since bathrooms and showers are communal, so guests either need to put aside their modesty or take turns.
Zero Star Hotel’s military style accommodations may be lacking in luxury, but once it opens for business, will be wallet-friendly for travelers on a budget at just 6 to 16 EUROS per night.
