One room and roof with a view

An art installation consisting of an actual one-room hotel offering 1970s-style glamour, artistic cachet and a view of the Eiffel Tower was lifted into place on the roof of a Paris museum yesterday.

Hotel Everland, the creation of Swiss artists Sabina Lang and Daniel Baumann, will remain atop the Palais de Tokyo until the end of 2008, functioning as both a museum exhibit and a room where people can stay overnight.

Looking rather like the bachelor pad of an imaginary pop star from 1972, the room has curving beige couches to recline on, a turquoise-tiled bathroom and a record player with a collection of vinyl discs but no television.

Guests pay €333 ($632) a night during the week and €444 at weekends, a comparable rate to other hotels in the chic 16th arrondissement, with charges used to cover running costs.
