Defense ministers’ asses need four-star hotels?

EU defense ministers were supposed to meet in my home town of Olomouc in February. According to local media the meeting was called off. Or, to be more exact, the ministers will meet elsewhere because there is not enough four-star hotel rooms, the Olomoucky denik daily wrote.

Local authorities say “We are not buying this. When Olomouc was picked the organizers (EU) had already been familiar with the accomodation possibilities”. And they speculate that some other city made a secret deal of some sort.

What surprises me more is the fact that four-star hotels are a prerequisite for a meeting of bureaucrats who are paid from our own taxes/money. Are you saying that there is no bed and running hot water in three-star hotels? I have seen all three-star hotels in Olomouc and they are just fine.
