The Week contest: Vacation rental
This week's question: A tourist who used Airbnb to book a "clean room with private bathroom" in Amsterdam was shocked to discover that his accommodation was a shipping container parked on a sidewalk, equipped with three mattresses and a portable potty. Please come up with a short, catchy slogan that the container's owners could use to advertise their minimalist vacation property.
