Video: Banksy's Walled Off Hotel welcomes its first guests

When is a hotel opening simultaneously a political statement and a work of art?

When Bristol-based artist Banksy’s guesthouse in Bethlehem receives its first guests.

The Walled Off Hotel is just a stone’s throw from the controversial separation wall which runs through the occupied West Bank.

Although being the birth place of Jesus is already a significant attraction, the Mayor of Bethlehem Vera Baboun welcomed the latest tourist draw.
