A TikToker has revealed how she bagged herself a free hotel room on a last-minute trip to Ibiza – but it’s not quite the private getaway you’d imagine.
Beatriz Carpio, a 21-year-old medical student from Madrid, was over the moon when she received an invitation to attend Lacoste Ibiza’s summer party, roping in her friend Toño for the trip.
In a rush to book flights, she didn’t factor in the cost of booking accommodation, and wondered if she could get herself a freebie if she chose an “alternative room”.
With hotels booking up fast, Beatriz decided to stay in Suite Zero at Paradiso Ibiza Art Hotel in San Antonio, a room that costs nothing to stay in, but has fully transparent walls where guests can watch you all night.
Located in the hotel lobby, it's free as a double or single room to guests who are willing to be treated as a live art installation.
Keen to try the bizarre experience, she booked the room, and that meant little to no privacy for the duration of her stay.

Sharing her experience on TikTok, she said: “I thought that it could lead to a lot of laughing, it was convenient since it is free, and we honestly just didn’t have enough time to think more deeply about it.
“Toño is an incredibly flexible person, he doesn’t complain basically ever, and he loves fashion so the incentive of the Lacoste party did it for him.”
But despite the obvious lack of privacy, they actually enjoyed their stay.
In the clip, which received over 79,400 likes and 682,500 views, Beatriz pans around her relatively normal looking hotel room, before revealing the giant transparent walls which separate the rooms.
