Cyprus gets its very own graffiti hotel

Cyprus’ first graffiti hotel has become a reference point in Larnaca, an Instagrammable hub and a permanent exhibition showcasing the value of street art.

Walking in the Larnaca city centre, it is hard not to notice the former Rise Boutique Hotel, now Rise Graffiti Hotel, since its renovation in July. Previously one of countless grey, nondescript buildings, the luxury hotel has now been sprayed to the core with colour.

The artwork is not confined to the funky portraits and typography that cover the entire exterior of the building, but continues on the interior, including the whole reception area and the 42 guest rooms.
