Banksy has always remained deeply political and outspoken about his views, and while projects like Dismaland have showcased his works in a larger way over the last few years, this project may be his biggest. 

The Walled Off Hotel has opened in Bethlehem and consists of 9 rooms and one overtly lavish presidential suite. While Banksy's team is claiming that the hotel is not an art exhibition and will be a legitimate business venture, this is still sure to open up a lot of conversations on the politics happening in that area. 

Images are beginning to circulate across the internet, and the hotel is reportedly opening for bookings at the end of the month. Banksy's team also reports that there will be art exhibitions in the future at the location featuring work from Palestinian artists that will hopefully spark up conversations about the current political climate.
