  1. Belgrade hotel offering chance to spend night with Hitler

    GERMANY:A Belgrade hotel is offering a once-in-a-lifetime experience: the chance to spend the night with Adolf Hitler.

    It seems that even the long-dead Nazi dictator has his price: €130 a night. And no kissing.

    His new home, the Hotel Mr President, opened its doors in the Serbian capital last November with a portrait of a different world leader in each bedroom.

    Guests can choose from George Washington, Fidel Castro, Mahatma Gandhi or even Margaret Thatcher.

    But room 501 is already notorious as the Hitler suite.

    Dominating the room, above the bed with its tan bedspread, is an oil painting of himself in full military get-up, squinting at the spotlight on the wall. Guests who grow tired of Hitler's gaze can turn their attention to the "night sky effect" light feature on the ceiling.

    "Our first guest was a German woman from Augsburg who badly wanted to be photographed in bed with Hitler," recalled manager Dusan Zabunovic.

    Since then, the hotel has been bombarded with calls from Germany, where fears have been expressed that the hotel will become a place of pilgrimage for neo-Nazis.

    "If that was the case," said Zabunovic to a German newspaper, "then Madame Tussauds in London would have to be worried because they have a wax Hitler on display."

    He said that one living president was so tickled by the idea of a room named after him that he has already made a reservation to stay there in the coming weeks.

    At the moment, the last rooms on the first floor are being completed, and various embassies have begun lobbying the hotel to honour one of their leaders with a room.

    "Today I saw the nearly completed picture of President Mesic of Crotia," said hotel employee Boban Grahowac. "It's likely that Tony Blair will make the final selection, too."

    Hitler would be furious to know that room 501 is not the most popular with guests. "That would be the Tito suite for €444 a night," said Grahowac.

    "But Hitler's the second most popular. He's booked out until the end of May."

  2. That would be a top prof/trophy for any squadron bar :)
     
  3. Serbs naming a room after Hitler? Somebody send them a history book, will you...
     
  4. Having watched the video, it appears that all the rooms look identical with just a different portrait in each...here was me expecting massive red drapes bedecked with swastikas, khaki/feldgrau furnishings etc etc
     
  5. A few years ago, I think in Mrs Thatcher's time, there was Council that refused planning permission to some company. The company appealed to who-ever in Whitehall.The result was that the Council was over-ruled and the development went ahead.
    Come the day that the Council has to name the streets... Hitler Ave, Goering etc - As it is said "Revenge is a dish best eaten cold"
