Null Stern Hotel of Switzerland: Bomb Shelter Turned Hotel

Located in one of Switzerland’s historic regions, Appenzellerland, the Null Stern Hotel offers a unique and memorable lodging experience – because it was once a nuclear fallout shelter.

Billed as the world's first zero-star hotel, the Null Stern Hotel occupies the underground space of a nondescript apartment block. The hardened concrete structure and near-two-foot-thick blast doors were designed to take the full brunt of a nuclear or chemical attack. In time of crisis the bunker would have been able to hold more than 200 people. Now, as the Null Stern Hotel, it can accommodate just 14 guests, eight in four double beds and the rest in singles.

Perhaps strangest of all is that the hotel's concept seems to be a hit. With only three months of operation under its belt, the Null Stern has bookings up to 2012, but has also managed to get a nomination in this year's Worldwide Hospitality Awards.
