Days back when the news of Jail turning into a Hotel was unusual and invited eyeballs, today the very mention of Hotel Everland, one-room hotel has overshadowed its significance. Offering picturesque views, the hotel is parked on the roof of the Palais de Tokyo in Paris from November 2007-December 2008. This inventive creation is the result of the witty efforts delivered by Swiss artist-duo Sabina Lang and Daniel Baumann. The hotel is equipped with a single-room along with a king-size bed with attached bathroom and lounge.
This pricey single-room cost equivalent to three-night and four-day stay in any ordianary hotel. To your much-amaze, the per night charges of the hotel are 333 euros ($475) during the week, 444 euros ($634) at weekends. But to compensate the luxury deal or rather a lame excuse to yourself, you can always steal the golden embroidered bath towels as a memento.
This acts as more of an installed masterpiece offering 1970s-style glamour, artistic cachet and an elegant scenic beauty of the Eiffel Tower. This multi-functional edifice works both as a museum exhibit and also as a room offering you a chivalrous night-stay.
Developed for the Swiss National Exhibition Expo.02, Hotel Everland was first located on the lake of Yverdon, followed by the mobile pavilion factory roof at L/B’s studio. After that from June 2006 till August 2007 Hotel Everland was placed on the roof of the Museum of Contemporary Art Leipzig, Germany. During the daytime, the room is a medium to rejoice and entertaining medium for the museum visitors. So, if you have the heart to feel this luxury then rush now as the booking is complete for the coming two-months.
