Banksy Opens “The Walled Off” Art Hotel In Palestine, And It Has The ‘Worst View In The World’

The famous British artist Banksy is back with a brand new project called “The Walled Off Hotel,” and people can literally sleep inside this work of art. Located in Bethlehem, Palestine it offers the ‘worst view in the world’ with windows overlooking the controversial wall that separates the West Bank from Israel.

From the budget room, outfitted with surplus items from an Israeli military barracks, to the presidential suite with a plunge bath, a roof garden, home cinema, and other lavish features, this hotel (former pottery workshop) will officially open on March 11, with beds starting from $30/night.

Banksy and his team have spent 14 months establishing the hotel and decorating it with murals, paintings, and various installations. “[It’s] a three-storey cure for fanaticism, with limited car parking,” he said.

The name "Walled Off Hotel" is the best part of it all. Gotta Love it!

The next one to be built should be a bomb shelter hotel, like the schools and houses in Sderot (Israel). And make one of the rooms explode randomly every month – to make it more authentic to the experiences Israeli citizens are exposed to.
