World’s First Nuclear Bunker Turned Zero-Star Hotel Opens in Switzerland
"Using the weapon of art, we have created a low-budget hotel which has charm, takes into account guests' individual wishes and thus becomes quite something."

Sevelen, Switzerland - Tourists in Switzerland can soon sleep in the world's first "zero-star hotel," a former nuclear bunker several meters below the ground.
The hostelry in the northeastern region of St. Gallen, which is part of the town's project to convert the hardly used nuclear bunker, is aimed at guests with a modest income.
