Swiss Cold War bunker becomes first zero-star hotel





Tourists in Switzerland can soon sleep in the world's first "zero-star hotel," a former nuclear bunker several yards below the ground.

A group of 15 guests inaugurated the hotel, sleeping the night from Thursday to Friday in the former bunker embellished with artistic decoration and real hotel duvets.

But that was only a trial run, and regular operation of the hotel will require approval of an operating budget by the town of Sevelen.

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.
