"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.

Hotel Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 4th, 2013
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!!

A must say a few things Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 27th, 2013
It is very good and the gimmick is a little tricky to learn but the booklet is right, if you sit down and practice for about 15 minutes each day for a week you have pretty much mastered it. However the reason why I gave it four stars is the patter he gives you is somewhat long and might disinterest spectators. And another reason why i gave it four stars is because to do the final phase of the trick, the one where whenever the spectator wants to stop the card he lands on matches the card on the envelope. That effect needs a deck switch and I find that a little decieving. However this is a fantastic trick so I would say it is worth the money.

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 !!

Not for the beginner Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 27th, 2013
The cards are nicely made.
The principle is not new, you will find it in a lot of similar effects.
But it's an interesting theme.
You need a good audience management and so in my opinion it's more for the experienced mentalist.

Hotel, perfect for walkaround Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 31st, 2013
It's in my walkaround show since I got it and gets great reactions.
- easy to do, with some memory work, but nothing hard (it can be done with no memory work, but that can be problematic in some conditions, like low light)
- reset is instant
- needs very little pocketspace, less than a deck of cards
- you begin and end clean, there is nothing to find
- interaction with the spectators when they are imagining they are in the hotel they choose, in the city where the hotel is, is great
- there are 2 phases which can be done on their own, one of which is repeatable. So no problems if you run into the same people in another group

I love it.

Phenomenal Power In The Right Hands Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 3rd, 2013
Mentalist Joe Riggs here, I usually don't leave reviews yet I could not resist this one. After 13 months on tour I wanted to check out some new routines that are POWERFUL, yet leave me the choice to tailor my own presentation, I could not have made a better choice. In my demonstrations I focus mainly on legitimate psychological skills and these days do VERY little gimmicked routines, so I choose carefully. A friend I trust mentioned this so I picked it up and was INSTANTLY thrilled beyond belief. The gimmicks are brilliant and fiendishly clever, add to that they are always handled by the spectator and you have gold. Two GUARANTEED strong climaxes even if you executed this with NO presentational skill.Yet after crafting my own dramatic and emotional story around this effect tying into the tour I was just on, I knew I had in my hands a routine that is my performances to STAY. Thank you Ludovic, this is sheer power in the right hands.
