Graffiti artist Banksy has opened a hotel with “the worst views in the world” in the West Bank.
“The Walled Off Hotel” in Bethlehem was unveiled in a surprise announcement on Friday.
Rooms at the guesthouse, which overlooks the West Bank separation barrier, will be available to book from March 11.
The venture has been termed a hotel, protest and art all in one from artist Banksy whose work has previously aimed to bring Israelis and Palestinians together, the Guardian reported.
A preview of the hotel unveiled to journalists on Friday showed the nine rooms – the cheapest of which costs $30, or around £24 a night – decorated with the artist’s satirical work.
One room, nicknamed “Banksy’s room”, features a king-sized bed with artwork showing a Palestinian and Israeli in a pillow fight above the bed. The hotel also features a presidential suite and a museum.
The aim is to bring visitors to the historic city of Bethlehem, whose economy has suffered since war damaged its tourism economy.
Banksy’s latest venture follows Dismaland, a sinister amusement park which was opened in Weston-super-Mare in 2015.
In the past Banksy, whose identity remains shrouded in mystery, has decorated the West Bank separation barrier with pieces of artwork including a painting of a girl pulled upward by balloons.
Last year, he is believed to have sneaked into Gaza to draw four street murals, including one on a metal door that depicted the Greek goddess Niobe cowering against the rubble of a destroyed house.
The artist's satirical stencils - rats, kissing policemen, riot police with yellow smiley faces - first appeared on walls in Bristol before spreading to London and then around the world.
His artwork comments on war, child poverty and the environment.
