Banksy Opened His Own Hotel

The British legendary street artist Banksy just finished his new project. This time it is a nine room hotel called “The Walled Off Hotel” in Bethlehem, Palestine – very close from a stretch of the controversial West Bank barrier which has been heavily decorated by artists.

“The Walled Off Hotel” includes several murals and installation by Banksy that can be found in several rooms such as the “Presidential Suite” or “Room With A View”. If you are on a budget, bunk beds are also available for just £30 a night.
Installations includes “Out of Service”, walled-off lift at Banksy’s hotel or “The worst view in the world” as described by the man himself about the view from his rooms.
On view is also a small museum where you will find a mannequin showing the signature of the Balfour declaration.*
