The hotel was constructed by prestigious German artist HA Shult, who is famous for his work 'Trash Men' --a piece composed of thousands of life-sized human figures completely made of trash.

Originally erected in Rome in June for World Environment Day, the art-installation hotel is on tour and will be in Madrid from January 19th to the 23rd. Ten people will be accommodated each night in the five double rooms, but organizers say don't expect a luxurious stay instead guests will "live an experience with a strong environmental committment."
