Located on Death Strip, the piece of land along the former Berlin Wall where people used to be shot and now a waste land dedicated to sculptures, French artist Etienne Boulanger formed a one room hotel between billboards. It definitely is a Room without a View. A night costs a mere Euro 20.- (approx US $ 30.-). It is on view (or use) up to March 2008.
It is accessible by ladder and is a fully equipped as a two star hotel room.
Philip Horst, one of five artists running the Sculpture Park Berlin Centrum, said, "Boulanger's idea was to make use of an economic cycle and use the rented out advertising spaces to finance the hotel."
