    Default Contractor friendly hotels

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/news...9-a-night.html

    The bargain price buys a room with no windows or television, no central heating, very little hot water, and a compulsory waking time of 7am.

    Guests are likely to have to share their room with up to six lorry drivers, hard up travelling salesmen or passing immigrants, and must queue for the hotel's one shower in the morning.

    Despite its minimalist charms, the frankly named Null Stern Hotel (No Star Hotel in German) is in the Swiss town of Sevelen, not far from the financial centre of Zurich.

    Designed by conceptual artists, it was opened to the public earlier this summer as the ultimate in no frills luxury.

    Patrick Riklin, who co-owns it with his brother, said he wanted guests to abide by the motto "less is more" as they paid between £5.99 and £17 for a room for the night.

    It'll be in the UK in no time - filled up with Bob's pals so making it even harder for UK people to compete for jobs.
    How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.
