About the hotel : You cannot visit the hotel, because it doesn’t exist, but you can find out about mutual hotels, which gave inspiration to the team. “We looked at archive photos from many different hotels, including several hotels in London, Scotland, Switzerland—all over the place. Personally, I think the design was most influenced by the Grandhotel Pupp, which sits on a hill overlooking the town of Karlovy Vary.” – art director Adam Stockhausen. Görlitz Warenhaus department store was one of the locations where the films was shooting. It became a home base for the whole team and the whole interior of the warehouse became the interior lobby of the [Grand Budapest] Hotel.

Reasons 2 watch :
– 2 the most beautiful decades at once : 30’s and a 60’s
– pink colors
– good humour
– beautiful landscapes
– interesting scenario
– Wes Anderson’s creation
