"If you check in to this Hotel, you'll enjoy the amenities." -Max Maven

“I own 3 sets of Ludo Mignon’s Hotel cards! He has taken a timeless principle, updated it with a modern theme, supplied absolutely top-class props and added a number of secret “somethings” to create a sensational effect. This is Mentalism at its finest! The secret is undetectable, everything is open and above board and yet you still read your spectator’s mind and then make a great prediction. I highly recommend this package to every mentalist!” -Richard Osterlind

"Hotel packs the impact of a full blown stage piece into your jacket pocket! The method is brilliantly structured and allows for a deeply fooling demonstration. This is an excellent addition to any working performers arsenal of miracles." -Luke Jermay

You give the spectator an envelope containing a PREDICTION. You then hand the spectator a stack of business cards you’ve collected from various hotels that you’ve stayed at over the years. While your BACK IS TURNED, the spectator goes through the cards one at a time. He chooses one and puts it in its pocket. Once you turn back around to face the spectator, you immediately know which hotel he has chosen!

Now you decide to take the experiment to the next level. The spectator goes through the stack of business cards again. Again he stops on the card of his choice. You then ask him to open the envelope, in which he finds a room key that MATCHES the hotel he has just selected!

What's inside



  • Business cards from various hotels around the world. Spectators will not question their authenticity. Every detail has been carefully thought out. The cards have been designed to do the heavy lifting for you!

  • A 20-page instructional booklet in English (illustrated by Tony Dunn and designed by Benoit Drager) chock full of advice on presentation, additional tips, etc.

  • A real hotel room key designed specifically for this trick.


Key features



  • Totally realistic props

  • Devastating impact on spectators

  • Can be performed anywhere, under any conditions

  • Spectators really have a free choice


HOTEL is a piece of mentalism that fits in your pocket, but packs a devastating punch - with not one, but TWO high impact effects.

I'm really enjoying this effect. As scripted (or some variation thereof) it's wonderful. I might recommend (in the future) a deck of "motels" that us "trench magicians" stay at around the country {Motel 6; Comfort Inn; etc)... To some that "know" you're a magician, the obscure hotels might scream "Props!" Common motel (or even hotel) names, I think it might make it more readily acceptable to the layman. The cards and instructions are of the highest quality and very professional.

great mentalism Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 24th, 2013
Ok, basically it's exactly what I was expecting. It's method is very clever and easy to follow and you're getting a handful of high quality props. I suggest you find a protective case to hold the business cards in,obviously so they won't ruin. I love this effect because it has one of the best reactions that I've ever seen and I highly recommend you buy this now.

this is strong magic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 2nd, 2013
I give hotel 5 stars. firstly the effect involves hotel visiting cards that look genuine and not like props. The other effects on the same lines like directors cut(uses movie poster cards), Geomagic(cards with city names) , certainly make the audience believe that the cards are designed for the magic effect, but here you are using normal visiting cards . A lot of hard work has gone into this by Ludovic Mignon(the inventor) and Richard Cauche{his friend (thats what friends are for)}.All the possable situations in a performance have been thought of and have been covered. You always end up with a miracle . This is not only a close up trick. Its a stage illusion .Thanx Ludovic for this gem .

pocket management Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 9th, 2013
Wow you get alot of business cards and your going to need a pocket or 2! The quality of the cards are excellent. A lot of work went into this effect. However I will stick with My "Director's Cut" for strolling,everybody watches movies, and repeatablity. I just can't see it fitting my style!!

Cool for walk around Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 15th, 2013
My Friend John Lewis suggested me HOTEL by Ludovic Mignon. First I was not sure that this will suit my style....But just yesterday I performed this for 10-15 times. I got wonderful reactions.
It's ANDY LEVISS' Brilliant "It's a Match"
But Ludovic's idea with business cards of Hotels is awesome.
I'm a stage performer I do 45mins Stand up Comedy Magic & Mind Reading shows for Carnival Crusie lines in USA....after the show the guest always comes to meet. So I was looking some fastest effect to blow their Mind offstage. and HOTEL is Best for such situations.
It looks like normal business cards...ans as a Artist we have to travel and stay in different Hotels so It's perfect Match. GO GET IT....FAST...NOW !!

Props, A+++++++
2 easy routines that are sure to fool!

Yeah, there is a deck switch but it is not a "Heat on the deck, how am I getting rid of it" deck switch. More like a put the deck in my pocket before anyone even cares, take the other out and move on with no one being the wiser, kind of moment.

I was going to give it 4 stars as mine came with a beautiful instruction booklet, IN FRENCH! However, one call to the Penguin Gods and I was back in business so quick it made my head spin, so that should definitely count for something.

GREAT EFFECTS!!!!

Hotel is a fantastic mentalism trick. The only thing I don't like is how you cannot hand out the second set of business cards for the spectator to examine for the key card prediction.

ONE PROBLEM Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 12th, 2014
The idea and gimmick are extremely thought out and well made. The only problem I have with this trick is that it's really hard to understand. It involves a lot of practice but later on, trust me. The reactions are amazing.
