Finnish hotel seeks professional guest for 35 daysMarch 27, 2013 @ 9:03 am
HELSINKI (AP) - Fed up with the neighbors? Pipes burst in the kitchen? Or, you just want to get away from it all for a while?
Hotel Finn in the heart of Helsinki might just be the ticket _ they're seeking a "professional sleeper" for 35 days to test their rooms and write all about it.
Hotel manager Tio Tikka says he thought up the stunt to help promote the hotel after lengthy renovations.
Tikka said Wednesday that they were looking for a "dynamic person to write a quality blog" about their daily experiences at the basic hotel, which has no bar or restaurant.
Requirements: Fluent Finnish and English, Russian a plus. The job opens May 17 with applications closing end of April.
So far more that 600 would-be hotel sleepers have applied.
