The 1 cent weekend lives not only in our dreams; the Crowne Plaza Quarto D’Altino offered its visitors a romantic four-star weekend in Italy’s lagoon city of Venice for only 1 cent.

In just a few hours, 1,400 nights had been booked under the tariff. It turned to be a mistake in a hotel booking system which ended up costing the hotel a great amount of money -- Reuters estimated it at 90,000 euros. No wonder the staff at the Crowne Plaza Quarto D’Altino hotel declined to comment this news!
