Le Palais Art Hotel
Three words are sufficient for the introduction of the film hotel Paris, the Le Palais Hotel in real life - La Belle Époque. The Golden Era was a period in which the cultural life, together with technical and architectural evolution, were going through its heyday. Many Art Nouveau gems were built at the time, and waiter Jan Dítě was working in one of them as well.
Flowing lines and curves, colourful glass panes, ornaments and floral motives - all of that contributed to the unforgettable atmosphere of the interior of the Art Nouveau building. No wonder the Emperor of Ethiopia chose Hotel Paris as the setting for his grandiose feast for Czech statesmen. However, the filmmakers went a little wrong in the scene where the Ethiopian delegation is bringing a two-humped camel into the restaurant - this kind of camels doesn't live in Africa, let alone be served as a delicacy.
Waiter Dítě had the luck to had seen a camel being prepared before, so he knew how to serve it to his guests. That's not all; he also received an order and a sash from the Emperor himself. The Emperor wasn't actually portrayed by a man either - this role was given to Tonya Graves, an American singer and actor based in the Czech Republic.
