This Hotel in the Swiss Alps Literally Has No Walls Or Roof
That’s one way to save money on heating bills.
There are a lot of things travellers look for when booking a hotel. Good location, great amenities, breakfast included, walls, a roof…
Until now, that is, because a hotel that is taking the ‘back to basics’ vibe and running with it has opened in the Swiss Alps, and it’s all kinds of amazing.
The Null Stern (‘Zero Stars’ in German) is stripping it back, literally, and allowing guests to get hella close to nature - largely because it features no walls, not even a hint of roof, and a distinct lack of bathroom.
What does that leave you with? A bed, linens, a couple of side tables, and a whole lot of view.
“The star is not the hotel but each guest,” Daniel Charbonnier, the hotel's co-founder, told Business Insider. “We got rid of all the walls, and the only thing left is you and your experience.”
It’s not all spartan though because guests can enjoy some luxuries - luxuries like having salami sandwiches delivered by a butler, access to a TV (with just one channel), and a bathroom facility a mere 100 metres from the bed.
With a nightly rate of $250 the hotel/bed/installation will set you back a fair bit - and you might want to check that weather report religiously before you go, too. Book here if you fancy a unique (if not potentially soggy) overnight stay.
