They create a vibe, build atmosphere and are an inseparable element of film creation. The silent protagonists of the backdrop, although they do not win awards for their roles, they remain in the memory of the viewers. Because the setting is often of key importance.
One of the most spectacular movie hotels in the world is the venue for Wes Anderson’s surreal comedy “Grand Budapest Hotel” (2014). A model inspired by famous hotels from Central Europe of the 1930s was created especially for this movie, including the Bristol Palace and Grandhotel Pupp in Karlovy Vary, as well as the Gellert Hotel in Budapest. And the hotel is where we meet a whole array of stars immersed in Anderson’s characteristic style. Truly a masterpiece.

The title hotel is located in Jaipur. It is a former palace with a picturesque courtyard and fairytale-like towers. A group of British people comes here lured in by the promise of the best retirement home in India. This is how a cheerful, colorful comedy with an excellent cast begins, full of great dialogues and unexpected twists and turns.
dir. John Madden (2011)
They both came from America and stayed at the same hotel, Park Hyatt Tokyo. They both suffer from insomnia. It is here that they get to know each other during sleepless nights. Understated, unnamed, lost in translation. It seems that Sofia Coppola did not direct the film, she magically conjured it up, with the help of the brilliant Bill Murray and the hypnotizing Scarlet Johansson.

Located in Colorado, in the Rocky Mountains, the Overlook Hotel is undoubtedly not one of the nicest hotels in the world. It is the setting for one of the best horror movies of all times. Jack Nicolson playing the novice writer comes here with his wife (Shelley Duvall) and son (Danny Lloyd). And what happens next, we're too scared to say.
