Who the hell would want a Stalin themed room???

"And who would you like to spend the night with?" asks the receptionist at Belgrade's "Mr. President" hotel. It's not what you think. Guests are asked to choose among Fidel Castro, Margaret Thatcher, Adolf Hitler or any of the 45-odd living or dead world leaders whose portraits grace the themed rooms.

"We were thinking, what does a mature businessman most desire? Power, of course. So, we decided to offer him the company of some of the most powerful people in the world," says hotel owner Dusan Zabunovic.

The selection knows no ideological or geographical barriers. Guests can pick Stalin or Putin; Abe Lincoln, Winston Churchill, or Silvio Berlusconi.
