NUMBER OF ROOMS: 34 rooms and 2 suites
CLOSED ANNUALLY: Open all year round
THE STORY: Quiet on set! Action! The Karmitz brothers – owners of the mK2 film production and distribution company – have pulled out all the stops for their new “screen & sleep” concept. At the Hôtel Paradiso, the world’s first movie theater/hotel, there are over thirty bedrooms and two suites designed with cinephiles in mind. From the small double room to the massive suite, it’s all there: king-sized screens, popcorn on the room service menu, dim lighting and as many videos on demand as you can handle, even from the bathtub… A sweet cinematographic experience brought to life by a stellar cast: Daniel Vaniche and Paula Castro (the DVVD agency) in the role of architects, and Alix Thomsen for the decor. Kids won’t get bored either, between the Playstation 5 and the selection of cartoons. So, do you have your ticket? Rooms starting at €100 a night.
TOILETRIES: Organic Corsican “made in maquis” Casanera bath products.
BREAKFAST: Dreamt up by Marc Grossman (Bob’s Bike Shop), there’s an €18 option that includes coffee or tea, fresh fruit juice, homemade muesli or viennoiseries, plus supplements à la carte like sourdough pancakes, vegan waffles or egg sandwiches.
LITTLE LUXURY: Enjoying an outdoor screening on the immense rooftop terrace, when the weather is nice.
