Would you like to discover more details about this original hotel of the Alps? Well you know what you have to do! Do not miss anything we tell you below!

Without roof or walls

As we were saying, today we are going to tell you about one of the most original hotels that can be found on the planet. This is the Null Stern, a hotel located 1,970 meters above sea level in the Safien Valley, east of Switzerland. As you can see for yourself, it is nothing like a conventional hotel, and not only because it is made up of a single room (in fact, customers need to walk about 10 minutes to satisfy their needs), but because it does not have ceilings no walls. Without a doubt, this is one of its main attractions, since during the day you can see fantastic views of the Alps, while at night the sky is filled with stars.

The customer at the center of experience

Although the only hotel room does not have a ceiling or walls, it does have the necessary furniture to sleep soundly. Thus, it is composed of a bed with a headboard, two bedside tables with their respective lamps and a pair of stools. Of course, as you can see for yourself by taking a look at our gallery, all these pieces are located on the most conventional. According to hotel owners, their goal is to put the customer at the center of the experience. On the other hand, they aim to focus on the intangible, reducing the rest to a minimum.

Waiter service

As they explain from the hotel, they offer the services of a uniformed waiter who serves breakfast in the morning. It is a typical breakfast of the area, consisting of a sausage sandwich and coffee. In addition, dinner is also served in the same bed. The food is prepared in the cabin where the waiter lives, which is also the place where the bathroom where the customer should go is located. As you can imagine, due to the weather conditions in the area, the hotel is only open from spring to autumn. Of course, the creators warn that the reservations can be canceled due to bad weather.

It is not his first project out of the conventional

The creators of this original hotel are the brothers Frank and Patrik Riklin and their partner Daniel Charbonnier, who have been based on the concept "the only star is you". Of course, it is not the only strange project they have carried out. A few years ago they also founded a hotel located in a former nuclear bunker located in Teufen, Switzerland, which they rated as “the world's first zero-star hotel”. In both cases, his goal was to break with the conventional. Would you like to spend a night in this curious hotel? Well you should know that the price per night is about 250 Swiss francs (about 228 euros). Of course, you will have to join the waiting list for 2017, since the reservations for this season are already complete. Then we leave you with our Gallery, where you will find more images of this amazing hotel located in the Swiss Alps. Do not miss it!
