The infamous street artist and political activist, Banksy, has decided to take his satirical art to the hotel business. The Walled Off Hotel is Banksy’s latest venture and its location is anything but expected.

The fully-functional art hotel is located in Bethlehem, a Palestinian town south of Jerusalem in the West Bank, and features art from famous international and local artists where guests get to enjoy. The hotel staff started their new adventure with an opening performance by Elton John. However, the artist did so remotely. We are assuming for security reasons.
