An Open-Air Hotel

1 minute read

Why settle for five stars when you can sleep under a sky full of them? That’s the idea behind Null Stern, a pop-up one-bed hotel in the Swiss Alps designed by twin artists Frank and Patrik Riklin. It’s got no wi-fi, no plumbing, no walls and no roof. But for $250 a night, guests are treated to breakfast in bed (delivered by a butler) and what Patrik calls the “360-degree TV show” of sprawling mountains. Although Null Stern is booked until it closes at the end of August, the Riklins and their business partner plan to open other hotels like it soon.
