THE HOTEL WITH THE WORST VIEW IN THE WORLD

This post is my contribution to the twenty-ninth virtual symposium coordinated by the ultimate cult leaderess, pocogato12. Please visit the Virtual Symposium Group’s #29 Participant Link APRIL Hotels/Motels post to read other contributions to the 'Hotels/Motels' virtual symposium.









Banksy is probably the world’s most famous graffiti artist. His provocative art first appeared anonymously in the English city of Bristol, then the rest of the country and now the rest of the world.

Banksy has done some fantastically subversive graffiti on the security wall the Israelis built in the West Bank to keep the Palestinians out - see the images above.

And now Banksy has just opened The Walled Off Hotel in the West Bank’s Bethlehem, named after the illustrious Waldorf Hotel in London - see the images below. Banksy’s hotel is just a few metres away from the security wall that divides Israelis and Palestinians in the West Bank.

Banksy claimed that The Walled Off Hotel offers "the worst view in the world"; an Israeli security watchtower can be seen from one of its rooms. The cheapest rooms in the hotel costs just £25 a night.

The hotel’s bar is decorated with security cameras and slingshots is seen in the bar area of the hotel. One of the hotel’s bedrooms is adorned with a painting of Jesus Christ with a sniper's dot on his forehead.

The hotel’s 'luxury' bedroom is room number three, known as Banksy’s Room, where guests sleep in a king-size bed underneath Banksy’s artwork showing an Israeli border guard having a pillow fight with a Palestinian civilian.

Would you stay in The Walled Off Hotel in the West Bank?

I hope Banksy gets to work as soon as Trump builds his wall across the American-Mexican border. But rumour has it that Trump is planning a fence and not a wall so Banksy can’t draw unflattering pieces of graffiti of the US President. Trump’s wall (or fence) is going to be a magnet for some great protest!

Local authorities used to remove the work of Banksy off the street but, since the art of Banksy has become very popular and the stuff of coffee table books, they are now keen to keep his graffiti art on their streets.

The singer, Christina Aguilera, bought one Banksy picture of Queen Victoria riding a , see image posted inside, for £25,000. The actress, Angelina Jolie, spent £200,000 on his works in 2006, including £120,000 for his interpretation of an Édouard Manet painting of a picnic. One of Banksy's murals recently sold for £288,000. Graffiti is clearly now big business!

If you want to read more about Banksy, please see my GRAFFITI blog post.

For some reason, I’ve also posted a lot about hotels on my blog – see HOTELS ARE SEXY, PREMIER INN, A BUDGET HOTEL, THE BIKINI HOTEL and HOTEL ANTARCTICA posts, as well as the ESS AND EMM post detailing my stay at a bdsm guest house!

I'm afraid I wouldn't want to stay there....I prefer more pleasant surroundings.

Would you stay in The Walled Off Hotel in the West Bank?
I imagine it would be an interesting place but considering the problems in that part of the world I would pass.

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

Sure- I'd stay there.

But- Trump, planning? Trump does not plan- he bloviates. He could not execute a plan to wipe his own ass without a gaggle of yes men and sycophants.

I might stay there in the area. Damn I may have to pick up some paint brushes and drawing supplies if there is that kind of money to be made. I've had a lot of ideas about images to create but I never get around to doing them.

Like my friend here even though it would be interesting the location is not where I would like to stay.....

I like 'Banksy' but I doubt I'd stay at that hotel. I don't fancy getting a blown up job
One of the reasons I like him is that I recently sold two 7" red vinyl singles by Blur ('Good Song' and 'Crazy Beat', that have his artwork on the sleeves, on a certain auction site for a lot more than I originally paid for them.

It's a fascinating hotel. I'd love to go there for dinner but I am not enamored of the rooms paintings. I got some of this in one of my travel magazines, but you have some really choice pictures. Thanks for posting this!!!

We're that generation born from the another generation who were affected by Palestine/Israel - it'll soon be a forgotten dispute.

I don't think I'd stay there either - being a hostage comes to mind!. But maybe a few decades down the line, I would stay there!

I didn't have to travel far to go to the BDSM guest house; it's just over an hour's drive away in a sleepy Warwickshire village.

I wouldn't want to stay in a hotel in a conflict zone either, but things seem to have got a little quieter on the West Bank. I guessall the world's eyes are on Syria, Yemen, Nigeria, Afghanistan, South Sudan and North Korea now!

I'm not sure how much money Banksy is making from his graffiti but his graffiti is going for some serious money!

    Nah... probably not... no definitely not... well... it depends.... on the company I suppose... but no... not likely... not hardly... not in the least... possibly but then again on second thought NO. No I'm sure I wouldn't... well... pretty sure anyways. I may have to give the matter further consideration. Can I get back to ya on that?
I've just booked a weekend break at the Walled Off Hotel, fancy coming?!

I suspect the Walled Off Hotel may be all about location and graffiti and not about food and service!
