The Hidden Hotel

Single Room HotelA windowless hotel hidden behind billboards and only accessible by a stepladder has become the latest addition to Berlin's hotel industry.

The Single Room Hotel is located on what used to be the "death strip" along the former Berlin Wall. The wasteland is now home to a sculpture park and French artist Etienne Boulanger is responsible for creating the building.

The two star hotel boasts a host of features including a comfortable double bed, a night lamp, television and reading material, plus a bathroom and toilet.

Philip Horst, one of five artists running the park, said: "Boulanger's idea was to make use of an economic cycle and use the rented out advertising spaces to finance the hotel."

A night in the unique hotel costs a mere 20 euros ($30).
