"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.

great mentalism Report this review

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.

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.

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 .

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.

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!!

Two Start Hotel Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 13th, 2014
I bought this effect based on the endorsements from some well known performers. To be completely honest, I've had this one for almost a year but have never performed it. Too much to carry around and just not that impressed with how it looks or how it works.

Highly Ingenious Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 28th, 2013
This combines two effects using the same (?) cards. The methods used for each are ones known to the mentalism community, yet there are lovely details in both that make this combination truly baffling.
