That's what happened to one lucky guest at the Ritz Hotel in Paris, who was in prime position to whatch RnB megastar Beyonce take part in a photoshoot in the room below him.
The portly gentleman, clad in a white dressing gown, feasted his eyes as the 29-year-old singer flaunted her killer curves in a sheer black dress.
If he had wanted a room with a view, he certainly got one.

Beyonce looked stunning in her ensemble as she turned on the glamour for the Harper's Bazaar shoot.
Her see-through black dress revealed her black underwear underneath, while her top half was decorated with a bloom of poppy-like red ruffles.
And as she turned to walk back inside the hotel room she ended up flashing her lack of underwear, as her designer dress revealed her side cleavage when the top gaped open.

Luckily most of the star's modesty was hidden beneath the red floral top.
The former Destiny's Child star was also looking noticeably slimmer, having apparently shed weight in recent months.
Her slimline look was accentuated by her hairstyle, which was scraped back tightly against her head.
The singer is currently in Paris to record a new song with Kanye West and possibly also start to prep the video for the tune, according to People.
She has been joined by her husband Jay-Z after the couple flew in last week by private jet.

During their time in the city they have enjoyed several romantic meals together, with Beyonce also paying a visit to Disneyland Paris.
The pair reportedly are staying at an ultra-exclusive hotel in the French capital that costs a staggering $20,000 a night.
The two-storey penthouse suite at the Hotel Le Meurice overlooks the Tuileries Gardens.

It is decorated in a nineteenth-century style, with private elevator access, sitting room, walk-in closet and bedroom with a bathroom in exquisite Italian marble.
There is also a pantry and a kitchen for a butler and personal chef and a glass enclosed dining room with a gigantic private open air terrace.
Yesterday's photoshoot was held at the famous Ritz hotel, where Princess Diana dined with Dodi Fayed hours before they were tragically killed in a car crash in the French capital.
