Two weeks after its surprise launch The Walled-Off Hotel – a project by the secretive British street artist Banksy, located next to Israel's controversial separation wall – was due to welcome its first guests Monday. Situated in Bethlehem, The Walled-Off Hotel is only four meters from the controversial wall which cuts through the occupied West Bank. The nine rooms, which Banksy described as having the "worst view of any hotel in the world," range from $30 for a bunk bed in one room to $965 per night for the presidential suite.The hotel was announced unexpectedly at the beginning of the month and the artwork – Banksy's largest new collection in years – has been donated to the local community, the hotel's website says.The wall is one of the most striking symbols of Israel's 50-year occupation, and has become a major focus for demonstrations and artwork – including work by Banksy.
