Weird News Central: Tourists Embrace Bunker Mentality
Stark hotel service in former nuclear bunker
Friday, March 12, 2010 16:28 GMTNEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) A new hotel in Switzerland has no carpeting, no windows, and no star-rating but plenty of guests.
Welcome to the Null Stern Hotel, that literally means Zero Star Hotel, a Cold War-era bomb shelter converted into one of Europes most unusual inns.
Chances are, youll make a few close friends if you check in, and thats not just because the one and only TV plays nothing but surveillance footage. Guests sleep in one of two barracks.
AOL News Senior Correspondent Buck Wolf reports that the Null Stern is just one in a series of hotels that twin brothers Frank and Patrik Rikin are opening to bring attention to some of the darker sides of humanity.
Wolf says, Switzerland has more than 250,000 fallout shelters, and theyre still building more.
