Video subtitles: Monaco - The secrets of a true luxury stay - LUXE.TV

[~DETAIL_TEXT] => 00:02
A paradise on earth that’s a little more than 2 square kilometres, where sun
00:07
yachts and luxury cars abound and where some of the wealthiest people in the
00:11
world choose to call home, welcome to Monaco.
00:28
The Principality of Monaco and its famous Rock have something to dream
00:33
about and it is real. The prestige and reputation of this attractive territory,
00:37
enclosed in the French department of the Alpes Maritimes, extends well beyond its
00:41
borders, so well in fact, that each day, several thousand tourists, both French
00:47
and foreign, engulf the narrow streets of the Princely rock.
00:59
An enchanting site that will no longer be a secret!
01:02
From its most luxurious hotels to its emblematic Monte Carlo Casino, not forgetting its boutiques,
01:09
restaurants, billionaire apartments, and its spots for relaxation and pleasure.
01:35
For the moment, we drop our luggage and enter one of the flagship hotels of the
01:39
Societe Bains des Mer, SBM, the Hotel Hermitage Monte Carlo. It is one of the
01:50
most intimate palaces of the Principality. Overlooking the Port Hercule,
01:54
it offers a very luxurious atmosphere in a perfectly conserved Belle Epoque decor.
02:05
The establishment is home to no less than 278
02:08
rooms, 76 suites and junior suites as well as 12 Monte Carlo Diamond suites.
02:23
And with all self-respecting palaces
02:30
the Vistamar and its chef, offer us an explosive taste of flavours.
02:51
Located in the middle of the Carre d’Or, the Hermitage invites us to visit the
02:55
surrounding on foot, where all the luxury boutiques are located.
03:06
A quick two minute walk is all that’s needed to be face to face with the Monte-Carlo pavilions.
03:12
Here, the most prestigious brands have their showcase,
03:14
whether it’s haute couture, timepieces, or jewellery.
03:23
From the top, the landscape is beautiful, especially with the famous Monaco square.
03:33
Nerve centre of the Principality, the Place du Casino is surrounded by 3
03:37
mythical buildings: the Hotel de Paris, the Cafe de Paris,
03:41
and the Monte-Carlo Casino where you’ll find many powerful engines roaring all day long.
03:57
But while some people find real pleasure in smelling the exhaust fumes of
04:01
supercars, others prefer instead to breathe the sea air. So we head over to the Larvotto district.
04:14
Here, the roaring engines have been replaced by the sound
04:17
of the lapping waves on the beach. Between exploring the sea depths or
04:21
walking along the Champions Promenade, there is always something to do. Unless
04:26
you prefer to wander along Princesse Grace Avenue, where restaurants, car
04:31
showrooms, and boutiques are located.
04:36
On the way, we stop off at Loona. A very young ready-to-wear boutique that wants
04:41
to stand out from the others. Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel, Gucci, and others have no place here.
04:47
There’s no luxury at Loona, just timeless chic.
04:54
We created a place to represent independent brands, we have even created
05:01
our own brand Loona, which is also available in other boutiques in Los Angeles,
05:05
Tokyo, and Dubai.The clientele come here to find quality at a
05:10
a reasonable price, here you’re not paying for a name, you’re paying for the creation.
05:24
A 200 square metre boutique over 3 floors where leather, silk and cashmere blend
05:29
together, on creations that go from the simple accessory to casual chic clothing,
05:33
and of course, the must have evening dress…
05:42
The most sought after are the dresses for the galas, because Monaco is well known for
05:49
a lot of galas so you need beautiful dresses, long, and a little sexy. I’ve also started making dresses
05:58
for little girls who go with their moms - it's very cute,
06:02
very pretty, and it works very well.
06:09
Among the VIP clients of the brand, model, actress and TV personality Victoria Silvstedt.
06:18
The Swedish beauty spent some time shopping here before heading
06:21
to a photo shoot at the Sporting Monte-Carlo. Curious, we follow along…..
06:41
Bye Bye Victoria… And now we head to lunch… On the way, we stop by the
06:48
Grimaldi Forum, before finding new landscapes in the Japanese garden.
07:00
This surprising 7,000 m2 green space is an authentic work of art
07:05
harmoniously blending stone, water, and vegetation where a zen atmosphere reigns.
07:19
A little higher up, on rue de Portier, we arrive at Sensais for our first
07:24
gourmet pause of the day. Jean-Pierre Escande, the owner, is waiting for us, with
07:29
the idea of having us discover new flavours. After running a hotel restaurant
07:34
for 32 years in the Principality, the idea of Sensais took shape. The concept
07:40
is simple, rediscover the real taste of seasonal products.
07:48
The name was found by my wife, Sensais, the senses and the seasons,
07:58
so it’s a mix between the two
08:02
And it’s a bit of the theme and concept that I wanted to create - that of seasonal Mediterranean cuisine.
08:06
We’ll try to work with producers, fishermen, and winemakers, to
08:11
highlight them and put their products on our menu when the land and the sea give
08:15
us the right moment.
08:26
It’s a restaurant that is in perpetual movement. In order to awaken all the
08:30
senses, music, flavours, and products will change
08:33
over the months and seasons. It’s the same thing for cocktails, wines, and
08:38
champagnes, that will accompany this simple and minimalist menu, in order to
08:42
favour quality over quantity. The menus are scheduled to be changed,
08:51
not necessarily every month but
08:54
during the month, certain dishes will disappear to be replaced by others
08:58
depending on all the products that we have. We’ll have a restaurant menu of
09:02
about 14 dishes, desserts included. But not only that. We also have what we
09:07
call the daily suggestions with 5 or 6 additional dishes. And we’ll also have,
09:11
for the lounge, little sensais, little dishes where we can introduce our cuisine to our clientele.
09:30
To each season its own products, and we must confess that we have done rather well during our visit.
09:35
Between this square sesame bread, Italian cuttlefish
09:38
salad with local citrus fruits, as a starter, and this Piedmontese potato as
09:43
large gnocchi, comte cheese slices, roasted porcini
09:46
mushrooms in Madeira and Catalan Picada, spread over two dishes, all our senses
09:52
were certainly awakened. And what about this Middle Eastern salad with Shawarma
09:57
and its mix of 7 spices…Or this salad adorned with sublime slices of
10:02
of monk fish cooked at low temperature.
10:11
There are, however, no seasons when it comes to real estate.
10:15
In Monaco, in summer or winter, the demand for real estate is incessant and apartments are sold at
10:20
prices that are sometimes... surreal. According to the IMSEE, there were 33
10:26
sales in 2016 for a total amount of 453.5 million euros.
10:36
The one we are about to visit is estimated at several tens of millions of
10:40
euros. Discretion is required, the exact price was not told to us.
10:45
It is on the 42nd floor of the Odeon Tower, the most luxurious and the highest high rise in
10:51
Monaco, that we find Angela Kleiber and 2 members of her team. According to the
10:55
owner of Lorenza von Stein Agency, real estate in Monaco still has many beautiful days ahead…
11:03
Monaco is currently very fashionable, it seems that currently the whole world wants to settle in Monaco
11:14
and thanks to buildings like the Odeon Tower we now have real luxury here with exceptional apartments
11:19
that also represent the demands of real estate, in other words,
11:23
very large spaces with breathtaking views of the principality and of course
11:27
demanding customers who want the most complete luxury.
11:42
There is the extension on the sea which is currently
11:44
being created which will bring us more apartments, also individual houses (..) too
11:48
have sea front villas in Monaco - it’s going to be a little bit of a revolution here.
11:58
A nice little project indeed, but back to our billionaire apartment, which is for sale, in case you were interested.
12:04
Almost 600 m2 of floor space and endless services... enough to meet any demand.
13:06
The future owner will have no problem finding the Prince’s Palace in the distance, a must see attraction when
13:12
you visit Monaco. Erected on a fortress established by the Genoese in 1215,
13:18
the Prince’s Palace houses splendours that retrace seven centuries of uninterrupted sovereignty.
13:27
Open each year between March 31st and October 14th, excluding Formula 1 Grand Prix
13:32
weekend, the Grand Apartments are accessible to the curious visitor.
13:37
From the Palace Square, there is a breathtaking view of Monaco. On the left,
13:43
it’s Port Hercule that dominates. On the right, it’s the district of Fontvieille that reveals all its qualities.
13:52
But let’s look a little further… We cross the Monegasque border, and head to Menton,
13:57
where we have an appointment with Marie-Olga Charriol, who is in the middle of a
14:01
photo shoot for the new campaign of her collection of bracelets called Les Debutants…
14:06
In front of the camera, the models are also making their own debut…
14:28
The ideal is to take several bracelets that we put with each
14:32
other (..) we call it Bangle Mania, it's very trendy.
14:51
The particularity of these bracelets is that
14:55
they are affordable, this is your first pretty bracelet that can be bought when
14:58
you’re 20. Bracelets that contain the DNA of the brand, namely
15:07
these hand braided steel cables.
15:17
Available in several colours, all you need to do is choose!
15:27
We’re not sure what you think, but for us, this sumptuous residence with a
15:31
swimming pool has given us a few ideas…
15:43
We head back for a moment of pure relaxation.... at the Thermes Marins de Monte-Carlo.
15:55
Spread over almost 6,600 m2 on 4 levels, the
16:00
Thermes Marins is in fact a Spa and Wellness and preventive healthcare centre of the
16:04
Hotel de Paris and the Hotel Hermitage. And contrary to popular belief, the
16:09
centre is accessible to all, even non-residents.
16:17
Any client, local, regional, who just wants to spend a moment here, 1 hour or
16:23
to have breakfast, have a coffee or have a treatment, of course is welcome at the Thermes Marins.
16:36
And as for what’s on offer? Like any self-respecting SPA, there are
16:43
all the body and face treatments, which can be cosmetic, aesthetic or massages.
16:46
but we are a little more than a Spa since we also propose a concept (..) of
16:50
health or of overall beauty that offers not just a doctor who will give all their
16:55
advice in nutrition and micronutrition, but also a complementary nutritionist.
17:06
Equipped with, amongst other things, a salt water pool heated to 30 degrees,
17:11
a hamamm, an outdoor jacuzzi, and even a cryotherapy unit, the Thermes Marin Monte-Carlo
17:17
also has a restaurant and a fitness centre…..the perfect place to burn
17:21
a few calories before the poker chips burn a hole in your pocket in the sublime Monte-Carlo Casino.
17:38
A true work of art built in 1863 that we owe to famous architect Charles Garnier.
17:44
A unique place, perfect for adrenaline addicts.
18:19
The game rooms are admirably decorated with stained glass, sculptures, and
18:25
incredible allegoric paintings. An ideal place to try and break the bank!
18:40
From the Europe Room to the White Room and the Medecin Room, the emblematic
18:45
private room of the Monte-Carlo Casino, the atmosphere here is extraordinary
18:49
Built in 1910 by Monegasque Francois Medecin, this private game room houses
18:55
the old elevator cage in cast iron that used to lead directly to the Cabaret.
19:20
Still in perfect working order, today it leads to the Buddha Bar that has turne
19:25
into an institution in Monaco since its opening in 2010.
19:44
At night, many people come to enjoy its cosy atmosphere and cocktails, not to
19:49
mention the finesse of its cuisine and its multi-influenced decor.
19:57
Food and decoration are what counts for many people, but music also plays a lot in the concept
20:02
It was an inspiration with my husband, (...) we traveled
20:05
a lot in Asia, in Thailand, and as for the inspiration for the dishes, it comes from Hawaii.
20:31
It's a "World" concept because you can
20:37
have tiles from Portugal, with furniture from the Empress of China, and next to it
20:41
you have American and Scandinavian influences.
20:58
Doors open at 5pm… And the vibe, that can buzz until 5 in the morning…..
21:06
Understood… It is time for us to return to the hotel after this busy day on the
21:21
Princely Rock… with the hopes that we’ve given you a few good ideas for an upcoming city trip… [DETAIL_PICTURE] => [~DETAIL_PICTURE] => [ID] => 3100 [~ID] => 3100 [NAME] => Monaco - The secrets of a true luxury stay - LUXE.TV [~NAME] => Monaco - The secrets of a true luxury stay - LUXE.TV [IBLOCK_ID] => 5 [~IBLOCK_ID] => 5 [IBLOCK_SECTION_ID] => [~IBLOCK_SECTION_ID] => [DETAIL_TEXT_TYPE] => html [~DETAIL_TEXT_TYPE] => html [PREVIEW_TEXT] => [~PREVIEW_TEXT] => [PREVIEW_TEXT_TYPE] => text [~PREVIEW_TEXT_TYPE] => text [TIMESTAMP_X] => 12/26/2019 03:20:17 pm [~TIMESTAMP_X] => 12/26/2019 03:20:17 pm [ACTIVE_FROM] => [~ACTIVE_FROM] => [LIST_PAGE_URL] => /video/ [~LIST_PAGE_URL] => /video/ [DETAIL_PAGE_URL] => /video/monaco-the-secrets-of-a-true-luxury-stay-luxe-tv/ [~DETAIL_PAGE_URL] => /video/monaco-the-secrets-of-a-true-luxury-stay-luxe-tv/ [LANG_DIR] => / [~LANG_DIR] => / [CODE] => monaco-the-secrets-of-a-true-luxury-stay-luxe-tv [~CODE] => monaco-the-secrets-of-a-true-luxury-stay-luxe-tv [EXTERNAL_ID] => 3100 [~EXTERNAL_ID] => 3100 [IBLOCK_TYPE_ID] => clubs [~IBLOCK_TYPE_ID] => clubs [IBLOCK_CODE] => video [~IBLOCK_CODE] => video [IBLOCK_EXTERNAL_ID] => [~IBLOCK_EXTERNAL_ID] => [LID] => s1 [~LID] => s1 [NAV_RESULT] => [DISPLAY_ACTIVE_FROM] => [IPROPERTY_VALUES] => Array ( ) [FIELDS] => Array ( [DETAIL_TEXT] => 00:02

to have breakfast, have a coffee or have a treatment, of course is welcome at the Thermes Marins.
16:36
And as for what’s on offer? Like any self-respecting SPA, there are
16:43
all the body and face treatments, which can be cosmetic, aesthetic or massages.
16:46
but we are a little more than a Spa since we also propose a concept (..) of
16:50
health or of overall beauty that offers not just a doctor who will give all their
16:55
advice in nutrition and micronutrition, but also a complementary nutritionist.
17:06
Equipped with, amongst other things, a salt water pool heated to 30 degrees,
17:11
a hamamm, an outdoor jacuzzi, and even a cryotherapy unit, the Thermes Marin Monte-Carlo
17:17
also has a restaurant and a fitness centre…..the perfect place to burn
17:21
a few calories before the poker chips burn a hole in your pocket in the sublime Monte-Carlo Casino.
17:38
A true work of art built in 1863 that we owe to famous architect Charles Garnier.
17:44
A unique place, perfect for adrenaline addicts.
18:19
The game rooms are admirably decorated with stained glass, sculptures, and
18:25
incredible allegoric paintings. An ideal place to try and break the bank!
18:40
From the Europe Room to the White Room and the Medecin Room, the emblematic
18:45
private room of the Monte-Carlo Casino, the atmosphere here is extraordinary
18:49
Built in 1910 by Monegasque Francois Medecin, this private game room houses
18:55
the old elevator cage in cast iron that used to lead directly to the Cabaret.
19:20
Still in perfect working order, today it leads to the Buddha Bar that has turne
19:25
into an institution in Monaco since its opening in 2010.
19:44
At night, many people come to enjoy its cosy atmosphere and cocktails, not to
19:49
mention the finesse of its cuisine and its multi-influenced decor.
19:57
Food and decoration are what counts for many people, but music also plays a lot in the concept
20:02
It was an inspiration with my husband, (...) we traveled
20:05
a lot in Asia, in Thailand, and as for the inspiration for the dishes, it comes from Hawaii.
20:31
It's a "World" concept because you can
20:37
have tiles from Portugal, with furniture from the Empress of China, and next to it
20:41
you have American and Scandinavian influences.
20:58
Doors open at 5pm… And the vibe, that can buzz until 5 in the morning…..
21:06

A paradise on earth that’s a little more than 2 square kilometres, where sun
00:07
yachts and luxury cars abound and where some of the wealthiest people in the
00:11
world choose to call home, welcome to Monaco.
00:28
The Principality of Monaco and its famous Rock have something to dream
00:33
about and it is real. The prestige and reputation of this attractive territory,
00:37
enclosed in the French department of the Alpes Maritimes, extends well beyond its
00:41
borders, so well in fact, that each day, several thousand tourists, both French
00:47
and foreign, engulf the narrow streets of the Princely rock.
00:59
An enchanting site that will no longer be a secret!
01:02
From its most luxurious hotels to its emblematic Monte Carlo Casino, not forgetting its boutiques,
01:09
restaurants, billionaire apartments, and its spots for relaxation and pleasure.
01:35
For the moment, we drop our luggage and enter one of the flagship hotels of the
01:39
Societe Bains des Mer, SBM, the Hotel Hermitage Monte Carlo. It is one of the
01:50
most intimate palaces of the Principality. Overlooking the Port Hercule,
01:54
it offers a very luxurious atmosphere in a perfectly conserved Belle Epoque decor.
02:05
The establishment is home to no less than 278
02:08
rooms, 76 suites and junior suites as well as 12 Monte Carlo Diamond suites.
02:23
And with all self-respecting palaces
02:30
the Vistamar and its chef, offer us an explosive taste of flavours.
02:51
Located in the middle of the Carre d’Or, the Hermitage invites us to visit the
02:55
surrounding on foot, where all the luxury boutiques are located.
03:06
A quick two minute walk is all that’s needed to be face to face with the Monte-Carlo pavilions.
03:12
Here, the most prestigious brands have their showcase,
03:14
whether it’s haute couture, timepieces, or jewellery.
03:23
From the top, the landscape is beautiful, especially with the famous Monaco square.
03:33
Nerve centre of the Principality, the Place du Casino is surrounded by 3
03:37
mythical buildings: the Hotel de Paris, the Cafe de Paris,
03:41
and the Monte-Carlo Casino where you’ll find many powerful engines roaring all day long.
03:57
But while some people find real pleasure in smelling the exhaust fumes of
04:01
supercars, others prefer instead to breathe the sea air. So we head over to the Larvotto district.
04:14
Here, the roaring engines have been replaced by the sound
04:17
of the lapping waves on the beach. Between exploring the sea depths or
04:21
walking along the Champions Promenade, there is always something to do. Unless
04:26
you prefer to wander along Princesse Grace Avenue, where restaurants, car
04:31
showrooms, and boutiques are located.
04:36
On the way, we stop off at Loona. A very young ready-to-wear boutique that wants
04:41
to stand out from the others. Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel, Gucci, and others have no place here.
04:47
There’s no luxury at Loona, just timeless chic.
04:54
We created a place to represent independent brands, we have even created
05:01
our own brand Loona, which is also available in other boutiques in Los Angeles,
05:05
Tokyo, and Dubai.The clientele come here to find quality at a
05:10
a reasonable price, here you’re not paying for a name, you’re paying for the creation.
05:24
A 200 square metre boutique over 3 floors where leather, silk and cashmere blend
05:29
together, on creations that go from the simple accessory to casual chic clothing,
05:33
and of course, the must have evening dress…
05:42
The most sought after are the dresses for the galas, because Monaco is well known for
05:49
a lot of galas so you need beautiful dresses, long, and a little sexy. I’ve also started making dresses
05:58
for little girls who go with their moms - it's very cute,
06:02
very pretty, and it works very well.
06:09
Among the VIP clients of the brand, model, actress and TV personality Victoria Silvstedt.
06:18
The Swedish beauty spent some time shopping here before heading
06:21
to a photo shoot at the Sporting Monte-Carlo. Curious, we follow along…..
06:41
Bye Bye Victoria… And now we head to lunch… On the way, we stop by the
06:48
Grimaldi Forum, before finding new landscapes in the Japanese garden.
07:00
This surprising 7,000 m2 green space is an authentic work of art
07:05
harmoniously blending stone, water, and vegetation where a zen atmosphere reigns.
07:19
A little higher up, on rue de Portier, we arrive at Sensais for our first
07:24
gourmet pause of the day. Jean-Pierre Escande, the owner, is waiting for us, with
07:29
the idea of having us discover new flavours. After running a hotel restaurant
07:34
for 32 years in the Principality, the idea of Sensais took shape. The concept
07:40
is simple, rediscover the real taste of seasonal products.
07:48
The name was found by my wife, Sensais, the senses and the seasons,
07:58
so it’s a mix between the two
08:02
And it’s a bit of the theme and concept that I wanted to create - that of seasonal Mediterranean cuisine.
08:06
We’ll try to work with producers, fishermen, and winemakers, to
08:11
highlight them and put their products on our menu when the land and the sea give
08:15
us the right moment.
08:26
It’s a restaurant that is in perpetual movement. In order to awaken all the
08:30
senses, music, flavours, and products will change
08:33
over the months and seasons. It’s the same thing for cocktails, wines, and
08:38
champagnes, that will accompany this simple and minimalist menu, in order to
08:42
favour quality over quantity. The menus are scheduled to be changed,
08:51
not necessarily every month but
08:54
during the month, certain dishes will disappear to be replaced by others
08:58
depending on all the products that we have. We’ll have a restaurant menu of
09:02
about 14 dishes, desserts included. But not only that. We also have what we
09:07
call the daily suggestions with 5 or 6 additional dishes. And we’ll also have,
09:11
for the lounge, little sensais, little dishes where we can introduce our cuisine to our clientele.
09:30
To each season its own products, and we must confess that we have done rather well during our visit.
09:35
Between this square sesame bread, Italian cuttlefish
09:38
salad with local citrus fruits, as a starter, and this Piedmontese potato as [SUBTITLES_PART2] => 09:43
large gnocchi, comte cheese slices, roasted porcini
09:46
mushrooms in Madeira and Catalan Picada, spread over two dishes, all our senses
09:52
were certainly awakened. And what about this Middle Eastern salad with Shawarma
09:57
and its mix of 7 spices…Or this salad adorned with sublime slices of
10:02
of monk fish cooked at low temperature.
10:11
There are, however, no seasons when it comes to real estate.
10:15
In Monaco, in summer or winter, the demand for real estate is incessant and apartments are sold at
10:20
prices that are sometimes... surreal. According to the IMSEE, there were 33
10:26
sales in 2016 for a total amount of 453.5 million euros.
10:36
The one we are about to visit is estimated at several tens of millions of
10:40
euros. Discretion is required, the exact price was not told to us.
10:45
It is on the 42nd floor of the Odeon Tower, the most luxurious and the highest high rise in
10:51
Monaco, that we find Angela Kleiber and 2 members of her team. According to the
10:55
owner of Lorenza von Stein Agency, real estate in Monaco still has many beautiful days ahead…
11:03
Monaco is currently very fashionable, it seems that currently the whole world wants to settle in Monaco
11:14
and thanks to buildings like the Odeon Tower we now have real luxury here with exceptional apartments
11:19
that also represent the demands of real estate, in other words,
11:23
very large spaces with breathtaking views of the principality and of course
11:27
demanding customers who want the most complete luxury.
11:42
There is the extension on the sea which is currently
11:44
being created which will bring us more apartments, also individual houses (..) too
11:48
have sea front villas in Monaco - it’s going to be a little bit of a revolution here.
11:58
A nice little project indeed, but back to our billionaire apartment, which is for sale, in case you were interested.
12:04
Almost 600 m2 of floor space and endless services... enough to meet any demand.
13:06
The future owner will have no problem finding the Prince’s Palace in the distance, a must see attraction when
13:12
you visit Monaco. Erected on a fortress established by the Genoese in 1215,
13:18
the Prince’s Palace houses splendours that retrace seven centuries of uninterrupted sovereignty.
13:27
Open each year between March 31st and October 14th, excluding Formula 1 Grand Prix
13:32
weekend, the Grand Apartments are accessible to the curious visitor.
13:37
From the Palace Square, there is a breathtaking view of Monaco. On the left,
13:43
it’s Port Hercule that dominates. On the right, it’s the district of Fontvieille that reveals all its qualities.
13:52
But let’s look a little further… We cross the Monegasque border, and head to Menton,
13:57
where we have an appointment with Marie-Olga Charriol, who is in the middle of a
14:01
photo shoot for the new campaign of her collection of bracelets called Les Debutants…
14:06
In front of the camera, the models are also making their own debut…
14:28
The ideal is to take several bracelets that we put with each
14:32
other (..) we call it Bangle Mania, it's very trendy.
14:51
The particularity of these bracelets is that
14:55
they are affordable, this is your first pretty bracelet that can be bought when
14:58
you’re 20. Bracelets that contain the DNA of the brand, namely
15:07
these hand braided steel cables.
15:17
Available in several colours, all you need to do is choose!
15:27
We’re not sure what you think, but for us, this sumptuous residence with a
15:31
swimming pool has given us a few ideas…
15:43
We head back for a moment of pure relaxation.... at the Thermes Marins de Monte-Carlo.
15:55
Spread over almost 6,600 m2 on 4 levels, the
16:00
Thermes Marins is in fact a Spa and Wellness and preventive healthcare centre of the
16:04
Hotel de Paris and the Hotel Hermitage. And contrary to popular belief, the
16:09
centre is accessible to all, even non-residents.
16:17
Any client, local, regional, who just wants to spend a moment here, 1 hour or
16:23
to have breakfast, have a coffee or have a treatment, of course is welcome at the Thermes Marins.
16:36
And as for what’s on offer? Like any self-respecting SPA, there are
16:43

16:50

16:55

17:11

17:17

penthouse suite which is the pellet
00:51
wasps suite which means beautiful star

beautiful bathroom which actually lets
01:13
Latrice is head in the bathroom there
01:15
and that has 360 well 270 degree views
01:19
of Paris and then you have the bedroom
01:21
there and then you have salon and some
01:24
hallways along there and then it ends in
01:27
this spectacular enormous private patio

02:01
have musee d'orsay you have Lanza lead
02:05
the dome over there which is Napoleon's
02:07
tomb the building with the columns is

00:26
Slovakia TripAdvisor calm again we don't

00:37
restaurants we're looking for the first
00:39
option hotels all right let's set the
00:42
date for tonight and see how many hotels
00:45
are available four hundred and forty
00:47
nine properties listed here out of the
00:49
almost three thousand and we're not
00:51
interested in page number one we're
00:54
interested in page number fifteen the
00:57
last page
00:58
oh and I can already see it the worst
01:01
reviewed Hotel in Slovakia his named
01:04
hotels or bar and it's not in the
01:07
capital it's actually in a city named
01:10
Mitra which is like an hour drive from
01:13
Bratislava the capital looking at the
01:15
photos I can understand why this is the
01:18
worst weird hotel in my country this is
01:20
like Soviet Union deepen the communistic
01:23
era how can something look like this in
01:27
2019 I mean we are a post communistic
01:30
country but this is way too much okay we
01:33
looked at the pictures now it's time to
01:35
look at the reviews ugly interior
01:39
unpleasant reception is Holloway without
01:41
functioning lights that really bad smell
01:43
on Holloway's and in-room dirty floor in
01:45
the room and much more well coming in
01:47
from a corridor with barely functioning
01:49
lighting I felt I'd enter the prison
01:51
room in the 1970s I was afraid to touch
01:54
anything
01:55
hotel is removed from outside but from
01:57
inside this totally disaster for nature
02:00
older than 30 years broken Sun blinds TV
02:03
from 19th century broken water tap
02:05
difficult to find stuff not friendly at
02:08
all Wi-Fi not working when we were at
02:10
the reception a staff member passed by
02:12
with cigarette in the mouth rooms are
02:14
dirty bathrooms are dirty breakfast in
02:16
kind of a basement served as kind of
02:18
cell service bad coffee bad fruit juice
02:21
we were happy to leave well it looks
02:23
like one night in this hotel may be a
02:25
life-threatening experience
02:27
all right let's book one night at this
02:28
place we're being transferred to booking
02:30

03:22
restaurant but this hotel is just
03:25
disgusting I have zero expectations
03:28

03:34

03:38
west from the capital to Nitra a city of
03:41
80,000 people situated at the foot of
03:44
the zubur mountain that shares its name
03:46
with the worst reviewed hotel in

03:56
[Music]

04:18
slovakia and the home to the worst

06:33
in my country it's really really hot in
06:35
here I don't know how we're gonna
06:37
survive this night
06:39
let's check the bathroom well I expected
06:43
much worse let's have a little tour
06:49
outside our room the docks probably shut
06:57
themselves here probably scratch the
07:00
walls the fifth floor well they put so
07:03
much work into the rooms but apparently
07:07
they didn't oh man this we have lighter
07:15
this is good to go
07:17
let's check the third floor where are
07:19
the rooms we saw in the pictures on
07:21
TripAdvisor
07:22
there he wants the the communistic
07:24
looking ones
07:32
probably building new rooms it looks
07:35
like that
07:36
the entire floor is just empty the worst
07:40
furniture
07:55
it looks like they're really nice which
07:58
is uh which is big news because they
08:02
probably realized that the hotel was
08:05
disgusting in the past they probably saw
08:07
some of the reviews and are trying to
08:10
change so I thought sup for that let's
08:14
go downstairs
08:17
it seems that the worst reviewed hotel
08:20
in Slovakia is trying to get better
08:24
oh this looks completely different I
08:26
wish I could see one of these rooms
08:29
nothing is open what am I gonna say if
08:44
there's someone in there
08:48
I'm gonna say that all this is 203 I'm
08:52
sorry huh I thought it was 402 we cannot
08:58
do this you do it
09:13
you
09:18
same room this looks like the room comes
09:21
up reviews let's go get the furniture
09:24
yes this is the roof of the reviews why
09:27
don't we have one of these try to get
09:29
everything you like 30 seconds bathroom
09:33
well the bathroom looks exactly like
09:36
ours
09:38
apparently the hotel is not full
09:41
otherwise we would be staying in that
09:42
horrible looking a room so hot in here
09:48
we're not gonna survive you know it's so
09:51

10:05

10:08
expected Vladimir here sweating fan we
10:18
should be getting a fan we're probably
10:20
gonna buy a focus this is not doable
10:23
we're we're not gonna fall asleep this
10:25
is the hottest day of the summer and
10:27
we're staying the night in are recording
10:30

10:47

10:51
[Music]
11:00

11:02
Mitra not to survive so humid in here
11:06
[Music]
11:16

11:20
friends we will survive see you in a few
11:24
hours it's midnight it's still really
11:27
hot in here the fan is not helping that
11:30
Majan we're still suffering with Vlad
11:33
here I don't know what to think about
11:36
this if this hotel is good or bad kiss
11:39
outside of our room it's kind of
11:42
disgusting but the room itself is decent
11:45
there's running hot water there are no
11:48
cockroaches I expected both things but I
11:52
was pleasantly surprised I think what
11:55
will decide it is tomorrow's breakfast
11:59
another huge mystery for us good night
12:02
or as we say in Slovakia dobro notes
12:06
good morning we survived the night but I
12:11
cannot imagine what would we do without
12:13
the fan I'm so sweaty I gotta take a
12:16
shower and then it's time for the
12:18
mysterious breakfast of hotels or more
12:21
let's go we're starving I think I've
12:25
never had breakfast in the basement
12:33
Oh
12:39
I'm gonna have the mushroom omelet so I
12:48
ordered a mushroom omelet flat ordered
12:51
scrambled eggs with onion and ham
12:53
there's nobody here there's nobody in
12:57
this cafeteria zero people we're the
13:03
only ones also we we haven't encountered
13:08
any guests we may be the only guests
13:12
here right now we haven't seen anyone
13:14
what's that
13:15
juice I really don't know I think it's
13:17
something like orange juice but it's not
13:20
orange I really don't know what is it
13:25
tastes like like plain water this brings
13:29
me back to my high school this is
13:31
exactly what high school drinks taste
13:34
like in Eastern Europe
13:38
[Applause]
13:41
[Music]
13:43
are they serious about this scrambled
13:47
eggs with onion and ham
13:49
but that's probably just one a scrambled
13:52
egg that's such a small portion by the
13:55
way this is really popular in Eastern
13:58
Europe I couldn't find this kind of
14:01
pastry anywhere else in the world it's
14:04
called The Rose Oak and it's just pastry
14:07
from from a grain flour a little bit of
14:11
salt let me taste it
14:20
the breakfast was pretty good and now
14:24
it's time to check out from the worst
14:26
raided hotel in Slovakia and maybe as
14:29
the receptionist's if they think the
14:31
hotel deserves this rating we're leaving
14:34
the fan for future guests I think
14:37
they're gonna need it see you my friend
14:40
you saved us we turned off the fan and
14:43
look at blood look how he's sweating
14:45

05:44
elevator well it looks pretty nice let's
05:48
see um what is waiting for us in the
05:52
hotel room no a/c and no fans it's 35
05:57
degrees Celsius whoo
05:59
blue looks like someone had sex here
06:06
probably dogs zero expectations well
06:10
this is our room 45 year olds for one
06:13
wait for two people
06:25
this looks great everything looks clean
06:30
how can this be the worst rooted Hotel
06:33
in my country it's really really hot in
06:35
here I don't know how we're gonna
06:37
survive this night
06:39
let's check the bathroom well I expected
06:43
much worse let's have a little tour
06:49
outside our room the docks probably shut
06:57
themselves here probably scratch the
07:00
walls the fifth floor well they put so
07:03
much work into the rooms but apparently
07:07
they didn't oh man this we have lighter
07:15
this is good to go
07:17
let's check the third floor where are
07:19
the rooms we saw in the pictures on
07:21
TripAdvisor
07:22
there he wants the the communistic
07:24
looking ones
07:32
probably building new rooms it looks
07:35
like that
07:36
the entire floor is just empty the worst
07:40
furniture
07:55
it looks like they're really nice which
07:58
is uh which is big news because they
08:02
probably realized that the hotel was
08:05
disgusting in the past they probably saw
08:07
some of the reviews and are trying to
08:10
change so I thought sup for that let's
08:14
go downstairs
08:17
it seems that the worst reviewed hotel
08:20
in Slovakia is trying to get better
08:24
oh this looks completely different I
08:26
wish I could see one of these rooms
08:29
nothing is open what am I gonna say if
08:44
there's someone in there
08:48
I'm gonna say that all this is 203 I'm
08:52
sorry huh I thought it was 402 we cannot
08:58
do this you do it
09:13
you
09:18
same room this looks like the room comes
09:21
up reviews let's go get the furniture
09:24
yes this is the roof of the reviews why
09:27
don't we have one of these try to get
09:29
everything you like 30 seconds bathroom
09:33
well the bathroom looks exactly like
09:36
ours
09:38
apparently the hotel is not full
09:41
otherwise we would be staying in that
09:42
horrible looking a room so hot in here
09:48
we're not gonna survive you know it's so
09:51
hot 35 degrees beautiful view neat that
09:55
off let's check the Wi-Fi connection cuz
09:56
I gotta work tonight hotel zaboor - come
10:00
on oh yeah
10:01
connected it's working great thumbs up
10:05
hotels aboard you're not as bad as we
10:08
expected Vladimir here sweating fan we
10:18
should be getting a fan we're probably
10:20
gonna buy a focus this is not doable
10:23
we're we're not gonna fall asleep this
10:25
is the hottest day of the summer and
10:27
we're staying the night in are recording
10:30
me we need a bath
10:43
we'll save us
10:47
yeah this that's Pleasant
10:51
[Music]
11:00
you have a pen I came here to enjoy
11:02
Mitra not to survive so humid in here
11:06
[Music]
11:16
oh yeah we will survive this night my
11:20
friends we will survive see you in a few
11:24
hours it's midnight it's still really
11:27
hot in here the fan is not helping that
11:30
Majan we're still suffering with Vlad
11:33
here I don't know what to think about
11:36
this if this hotel is good or bad kiss
11:39
outside of our room it's kind of
11:42
disgusting but the room itself is decent
11:45
there's running hot water there are no
11:48
cockroaches I expected both things but I
11:52
was pleasantly surprised I think what
11:55
will decide it is tomorrow's breakfast
11:59
another huge mystery for us good night
12:02
or as we say in Slovakia dobro notes
12:06
good morning we survived the night but I
12:11
cannot imagine what would we do without
12:13
the fan I'm so sweaty I gotta take a
12:16
shower and then it's time for the
12:18
mysterious breakfast of hotels or more
12:21
let's go we're starving I think I've
12:25
never had breakfast in the basement
12:33
Oh
12:39
I'm gonna have the mushroom omelet so I
12:48
ordered a mushroom omelet flat ordered
12:51
scrambled eggs with onion and ham
12:53
there's nobody here there's nobody in
12:57
this cafeteria zero people we're the
13:03
only ones also we we haven't encountered
13:08
any guests we may be the only guests
13:12
here right now we haven't seen anyone
13:14
what's that
13:15
juice I really don't know I think it's
13:17
something like orange juice but it's not
13:20
orange I really don't know what is it
13:25
tastes like like plain water this brings
13:29
me back to my high school this is
13:31
exactly what high school drinks taste
13:34
like in Eastern Europe
13:38
[Applause]
13:41
[Music]
13:43
are they serious about this scrambled
13:47
eggs with onion and ham
13:49
but that's probably just one a scrambled
13:52
egg that's such a small portion by the
13:55
way this is really popular in Eastern
13:58
Europe I couldn't find this kind of
14:01
pastry anywhere else in the world it's
14:04
called The Rose Oak and it's just pastry
14:07
from from a grain flour a little bit of
14:11
salt let me taste it
14:20
the breakfast was pretty good and now
14:24
it's time to check out from the worst
14:26
raided hotel in Slovakia and maybe as
14:29
the receptionist's if they think the
14:31
hotel deserves this rating we're leaving
14:34
the fan for future guests I think
14:37
they're gonna need it see you my friend
14:40
you saved us we turned off the fan and
14:43
look at blood look how he's sweating
14:45
again it's incredibly hot in here please
14:50
hotels abhorred by some fans emotions
14:58
hospital she denied University Chico the
15:01
optometrist doctor and I heard she had
15:03
not any hotel maslow and school
15:07
provision here but it just seemed easy
15:10

15:25
taxi
15:27

everybody it's me Kyle and no this isn't
00:04
some kind of palace or Queens nests this
00:07
is the regatta
00:08
we again okay let's go to somebody who
00:13
speaks the language the local language
00:15
Regent yeah that's right it's thing and
00:19
though we're not in Vietnam this is
00:21
Berlin in Germany that's right the
00:25
Regent Hotel offers luxury class and
00:29
it's really fine and once again still
00:32
talking about hotel but the same goes
00:34
for a thing as well that's a compliment
00:36
take it welcome back by the way give
00:38
this video a thumbs up immediately all
00:41
right let's start off in the rooms of
00:44
the Regent Hotel five stars right in the
00:47
heart of Berlin that's right for a brief
00:52
moment there I forgot what city I was in
00:54
this trip to Germany was such a
00:56
last-minute adventure but in the end
00:58
things just fell into place and you'll
01:00
see in the upcoming weeks to come so
01:02
this is your basic superior room at the
01:04
Regent Hotel
01:10
and here is also the spacious bathroom
01:14
if you're interested and you very well
01:16
should be
01:21
but the best thing about fancy hotels is
01:24
opening things up like opening the room
01:27
door and seeing the place for the very
01:29
first time
01:30
or opening the closet door and seeing
01:33
wooden hangers for the very first time
01:35
or opening the bathroom door and seeing
01:39
oh wait we already saw the bathroom for
01:41
the very first time or how about opening
01:44
the minibar fridge and seeing cold
01:46
drinks for the very first time or
01:49
opening this cabinet oh wait it's a TV
01:52
or is it a cabinet or opening another
01:55
door and oh wait it's one of those
01:58
Nablus doors gotcha yeah or opening the
02:02
balcony door fresh air for the very
02:05
first time with majestic city views
02:07
speaking of chandeliers let's check out
02:10
the surrounding area really quickly this
02:12
is pretty central to everything in
02:13
Berlin even the brennenburg gate which
02:16
is only a kilometer away in the shopping
02:18
area for higher-end goods
02:24
okay let's go back now it's cold I need
02:27
something I guess so one of the things
02:29
to do when you stay at a five-star hotel
02:31
is to enjoy the breakfast
02:32
ever so slowly even though we don't have
02:34
much time left the first thing on the
02:36
plate here is some European cream cheese
02:40
with salmon and that in itself is rather
02:43
unique to me alright put the attention
02:45
to detail is what's important you have
02:47
dill and you have tomatoes all around
02:49
and you have Sam usually where I come
02:53
from when I eat bagels
02:55
there's just cheese and that's it so
02:57
here we go
03:04
well I don't know if that Salmons even
03:08
cooked or not it's raw right smoked
03:13
salmon with cream cheese brilliant well
03:16
how can I ever go back and eat like a
03:18
regular bagel without smoked salmon who
03:23
will thought to put smoked salmon cheese
03:25
here his sole purpose okay next now I'm
03:30
going to admit guys I've never had eggs
03:31
benedict in my entire life so what it is
03:35
is eggs on top of a biscuit that has
03:39
been lightly boiled on the outside or
03:42
steamed up and in the inside when you
03:44
break it up it actually is still full of
03:47
that yolk so it's beautiful so you put
03:51
it like that there's some tomatoes in
03:52
there and some green herbs as well let's
03:56
just try to have a quick bite of that
04:03
mmm-hmm I was like the sour consistency
04:06
to it that the tomato adds with the
04:08
greenery with the eggs
04:10
and it's overall it's a very European
04:13
experience is very rich and English
04:15
cheese in there as well
04:21
how can I ever go back to eating just
04:23
like a fried egg it's so luxurious
04:27
hmm I like that now I'm not gonna go
04:31
home and try to replicate it probably
04:32
not but this is too complicated okay now
04:36
the main event of course you can't have
04:37
a German breakfast without french toast
04:40
so the only French toast I know is from
04:43
a freezer and you come in like sticks
04:45
like that long rectangular sticks that's
04:48
been thawed so you add some maple syrup
04:50
I love the berries because you know in
04:52
Vietnam you don't get a lot of berry
04:53
action I'm a very very deprived person
05:00
what best french toast I've ever had
05:04
Mulla the ideal french toast is is crisp
05:07
on the outside and then the inside it's
05:09
great you know kind of mushy and soggy
05:12
and inside that's the best kind of this
05:14
is it hard on the outside squishing
05:17
inside just like me after breakfast the
05:20
best thing to do is to work out so let's
05:23
go right now
05:38

05:41

hey there fellow travelers mark here
00:05
with Walters world it wouldn't Salzburg
00:07
Austria a great place to go to and we're
00:09
staying the wolf dietrich hotel the
00:11
hotel with obvious is some pretty cool
00:12
design in their rooms and things like
00:14
that what I thought I'd give you is
00:16
basically what you should know about
00:18
European hotels before you come to
00:21
Europe because I'll tell you the Holiday
00:23
Inn Express that you get in Champaign
00:25
Illinois is not the same as the hotel
00:27
you're getting in a Salzburg Austria so
00:29
we're going to do is going to go through
00:30
some of the basic differences so you're
00:32
kind of prepared for your hotel stay in
00:35
Europe okay now I will preface this my
00:38
hotels are pretty different throughout
00:40
Europe but there are some consistencies
00:42
usually aside from this room usually the
00:45
hotels are very small they're much small
00:47
and you have in the US and it's a lot
00:48
more intimate setting so just be ready
00:50
to really get to know your neighbors and
00:52
get to know people in the elevator and
00:53
it breakfasts and things like that okay
00:55
so not as big of rooms and we'll just
00:57
start out with that one fact you're
00:58
gonna have a lot smaller rooms but
01:00
before you actually get your hotel how
01:02
do you book your hotel hotels in Europe
01:04
and bed-and-breakfast in Europe have
01:06
gone all in in online bookings so your
01:09
bookings calm your Trip Advisor's all
01:12
these things you can book through there
01:14
pretty much any accommodation throughout
01:16
Europe and that makes it fantastic so
01:18
you can read the reviews and see if it's
01:20
right for you is it for kids is it for
01:22
families is it for a romantic getaway
01:24
you know these kind of things and who
01:26
the lights come on and everything you
01:28
know what is you're really looking for
01:29
so booking online is a really easy way
01:32
to do it also you can pay that way now
01:34
sometimes you might want special
01:36
requests and a lot of times you're
01:37
booked online through like a TripAdvisor
01:39
bookings those special requests you're
01:41
not always sure if they're gonna
01:42
actually get through so you can also
01:44
call the hotel and believe me they'll
01:46
speak English where they'll find some of
01:47
the speaks English that won't be a
01:49
problem or email them directly because
01:51
again they've gone all in for their
01:53
online presence so they'll have websites
01:55
and Facebook pages and stuff like that
01:57
so you can get your information if you
01:59
need it so if you need a baby bed or an
02:00
extra bed or something like that okay so
02:02
booking Europe simplest can be now next
02:05
thing is when you get to the hotel you
02:07
want to find a check-in okay now
02:09
check-in and Europe usually where you're
02:10
going to have to do you'll need your
02:11
passport and the credit card you booked
02:13
with
02:14
not every place will ask for but make
02:16
make sure you have those relatively easy
02:17
to get now so you're probably come for
02:19
the train station don't have them out
02:21
but you'll have your money about ready
02:22
to get out so if you need to get them
02:23
out you can now probably going to fill
02:26
out on your forms your registration
02:27
you're going to need your birthday
02:29
address typical things you're going to
02:31
need some countries for example Italy
02:33
they need to scan your passport or
02:35
photocopy of your passport and report it
02:37
to the police
02:38
so then you're registered there here in
02:40
Austria they asked for one passport from
02:42
our entire group and that was fine
02:44
because they're the ones that made the
02:45
made a check-in so some places everybody
02:48
in the group will have to put their
02:49
passports in other times only one person
02:51
and that's all okay now what's cool is
02:54
the check-in desks here are usually very
02:56
helpful for example one thing I
02:58
recommend always ask for the tourist map
03:00
when you do go to the hotel downstairs
03:03
the people here at the wolf dietrich
03:04
they got us a map they're circled here
03:06
you were on the hotel or here's the
03:08
hotel map seat seemed a nice little X
03:10
here's where you go here's where I
03:12
recommend you to see go eat and things
03:13
like that
03:14
now the thing is the people I find in
03:16
Europe the hotel staff the front desk
03:18
staff are really well trained and
03:20
telling you where to go eat where to
03:21
drink where to make merry how to see the
03:23
sights what public transport to take so
03:26
that can be really helpful this thing is
03:27
going to be your most helpful get that
03:29
tourist map so you don't have to care
03:30
around your big guidebooks all the time
03:32
you can just have this and I'm gonna
03:34
have your spots marked off okay now once
03:37
you get on check-in you're going to take
03:38
your well and hopefully there's an
03:41
elevator there's not always elevators at
03:43
all these hotels okay so make sure if
03:45
you you have problems going upstairs
03:46
with heavy luggage make sure you ask is
03:48
there an elevator now 99% of the time
03:51
there is but bed and breakfast --is and
03:53
smaller places there may not be okay and
03:55
when you take the elevator what you
03:57
should know is elevators in Europe are
03:59
significantly smaller and then they are
04:01
in the u.s. especially the hotel
04:03
elevators okay so sometimes the
04:05
elevators can take two people up or one
04:06
person in luggage sometimes you'll have
04:08
to actually pull a screen across to
04:11
actually open the door okay and one
04:13
thing that gets Americans kind of mixed
04:15
up when they when they go come to Europe
04:16
is the elevator the ground floor is
04:19
usually zero or G for ground floor or e
04:22
and like for example here and Gasol
04:24
ground floor they have that and then the
04:26
first floor up that's one so you may
04:28
think Oh what says we're on the second
04:30
floor I can walk up two flights of
04:32
stairs
04:32
no that's walking up three flights of
04:34
stairs okay so if you get some big
04:35
luggage that can be a little problematic
04:38
so elevators tiny tiny tiny and you're
04:41
starting one floor up now we've gotten
04:44
to our room now the thing is with your
04:45
rooms here in Europe yes you could have
04:47
keys or you can have the key cards it
04:49
doesn't really matter which one you are
04:51
one thing you might want to know is if
04:53
you get a key that's like a big Bell or
04:55
a big like thing on the end a lot of
04:57
times the smaller hotels and private
05:00
hotels will say please leave your key
05:01
with us when you leave okay that's what
05:03
they have 24-hour front desk they don't
05:06
have 24-hour front desk they're gonna
05:07
let you take your keys don't worry about
05:08
that but just now sometimes you gotta
05:10
leave your keys most the time you've
05:11
done now we're in the room now the most
05:14
important part of your room is your bed
05:16
beds and Europe look if you get a double
05:18
room in Europe it's two single beds okay
05:22
it's not two queen beds like you have at
05:23
a Holiday Inn or a Best Western or
05:26
something like that it's two single beds
05:27
and sometimes now sometimes you get
05:29
lucky and you have a double bed like
05:30
this which doesn't have a crack in it
05:32
but most of the time again when they're
05:34
double beds they're just push together
05:35
okay you have a crack in the middle and
05:37
the funny thing is that crack we've lost
05:39
children we actually asked my dad once
05:42
because the beds separated my that was
05:44
my mom my dad and me we're super hotel
05:46
Frankfort and the cry was thinner that's
05:49
just so you know it accredited ruined
05:51
this with and also my dad goes
05:52
right through the middle
05:53
we've lost Caleb and Liam a couple times
05:55
too so be ready for that crack in the
05:57
bed okay which which might be a little
06:00
shocking also if your travel with a
06:02
friend and you don't feel like being
06:03
very snugly together
06:05
well the beds you can easily separate
06:06
it's no problem okay also the beds here
06:09
a lot of times there's slat beds okay
06:11
there like here beds and so they've wood
06:13
slats underneath if you're a heavy guy
06:15
like me
06:15
you better not be jumping on that bed
06:17
cuz you will snap through it and
06:18
breaking okay not a really cool thing to
06:21
happen but you should be prepared for
06:23
that so you know no joking down the beds
06:24
you see your kids jumping on the bed say
06:26
no no it's going to fall apart okay now
06:28
what are some other things you might
06:29
want to know about hotels in Europe well
06:31
one thing if you want to go to the
06:33
bathroom now in the bathrooms here I'll
06:35
I'll take you to the bathroom okay so
06:37
here's the toilet
06:38
it now obviously the normal sit-down
06:39
toilet you have that Europe the only
06:41
times you ever see the hole in ground
06:42
toilets or kind of public toilets maybe
06:44
someplace in Italy or Greece your if you
06:46
don't see them too often so you're
06:47
always going to have a normal sit-down
06:48
toilet and you'll see there's the two
06:50
buttons up top there's a big button and
06:51
a little button the little button is if
06:54
you do little like pee-pee the big
06:56
button is if you do something bigger
06:57
sometimes you'll see one dot or two dots
07:00
one dot number one two dots number two
07:03
also some hotels in some bathrooms you
07:06
actually have to hold down the button so
07:07
all the water goes so you really control
07:09
the whole flow so if you do your
07:11
business please respect the other people
07:13
after you and make sure it all goes down
07:14
okay now what else do you want to do I
07:17
also want to take a shower when you're
07:18
here okay so we're in the shower area
07:20
the bath area now I'm not going to lie
07:22
to you most hotels in Europe don't have
07:23
the clawfoot you know tub this is
07:25
literally the nicest hotel I've ever
07:27
stayed in Europe it's fantastic
07:29
but there's one thing that they have
07:30
here in their shower bathtub area that
07:33
is very common in Europe and you have
07:35
the hold it shower now the thing is some
07:37
people will say it'll be hanging up on
07:38
the wall and they won't take it off you
07:40
can take it off the wall and use it to
07:42
bathe yourself just fine really great if
07:44
you got kids all kinds of stuff but I
07:46
met a lot of tourists I didn't realize
07:47
oh I can take that off yes that's why it
07:50
has the hose so you can wash around in
07:52
here if you've got kids bathtubs are not
07:55
very common in in the showers and the
07:58
toilets in Europe usually your shower is
08:01
very small and if your big guy like me I
08:03
mean you sometimes you barely fit in ok
08:06
so just be prepared for that um
08:08
sometimes actually seeing showers where
08:10
some of the shower and the toilet are
08:12
almost the same place so just know again
08:14
tiny spaces tiny tiny spaces sometimes
08:17
it's hard to get everything washed every
08:20
time so make sure you're watching ok so
08:22
what are some other things that are
08:23
different by European hotels so another
08:25
thing you might want to know about is
08:26
the TV I know I know
08:28
I'm here to travel I'm here to explore I
08:30
don't have time to watch TV I agree with
08:33
you but the thing is after you go into
08:35
the Salt Mines in the morning and going
08:37
to see the Cathedral in the afternoon
08:38
and then going up to the fortress up on
08:40
them up on the hill in the evening you
08:43
get kind of tired and after you know
08:44
that vina so and all those great
08:45
pastries here you just want to sit back
08:48
relax when you get to the hotel put on
08:50
TV
08:51
to show and go to bed now the thing is
08:53
what you should know is TV in Europe is
08:55
different in every country in terms of
08:57
the language places like Sweden Finland
08:59
Portugal they don't dub it all of it
09:02
will be in English or French or whatever
09:03
with subtitles on the bottom whereas in
09:06
Germany or here in Austria they actually
09:08
dub it into German so you might see your
09:10
favorite show
09:11
Oh Doctor Who's on awesome and Doctor
09:15
Who speaking German what it's because
09:18
here they're dubbing everything and that
09:20
just depends where you go some places
09:22
actually have some channels that have
09:23
both but I will say here should kind of
09:25
give in every country hotel room TV
09:28
Guide you're going to have four or five
09:30
local channels kind of like the ABC
09:32
network or CBS or NBC Fox in the u.s.
09:36
you'll have those you have a couple
09:38
sports channels you're usually Eurosport
09:40
okay you'll have euronews which isn't
09:42
just news at all a bunch of different
09:43
languages and then you're going to have
09:45
a traditional CN international debate
09:48
song or the French TV channel okay arty
09:51
which is Russia today all right
09:53
and then you probably like BBC news
09:55
horse maybe Sky News okay so a lot of
09:57
times what happens is the only time you
09:59
know America has really watched a lot of
10:01
news and these kind of things is when
10:02
they go abroad because that's the only
10:04
English Channel that's on there now what
10:06
are some other differences in the hotel
10:07
now in the US we kind of feel like Wi-Fi
10:10
is our god-given right well in Europe
10:12
it's not always the case but most hotels
10:14
in Europe will have Wi-Fi don't expect a
10:17
super strong signal so you can watch
10:19
Netflix pay Netflix doesn't work in
10:21
every country by the way but don't
10:23
expect a super strong signal if you got
10:25
to do work sometimes you got to go out
10:27
and find internet cafe which are very
10:28
hard to find now now some other things
10:30
that are different so I'll go back to
10:31
the bathroom kind of stuff one thing
10:33
toilets you can throw the toilet paper
10:36
down the the toilet just fine tampons
10:39
and feminine hygiene products usually
10:41
they'll have bags you'll throw them is
10:43
way on the side because a lot of places
10:44
in Europe the piping isn't can't handle
10:46
that kind of stuff so those kind of
10:48
products so it makes your junior is not
10:50
to run stuff down the toilet okay now
10:52
another thing in terms of the tours are
10:55
the toilets and stuff like that are the
10:57
towels now just like every hotel the
10:59
towels here are like drying with a sheet
11:02
okay I'll just tell you about
11:03
that so expect to use all your towels in
11:06
Europe they do not give you washcloths
11:08
okay the last ten hotels I've been to
11:10
one place gave me washcloths so that's
11:11
the own one I've ever remembered
11:12
actually giving me washcloths so if
11:14
you're a washcloth person like my
11:16
mother's a like psychotic about it and
11:18
joseline is psychotic about it they
11:20
actually bring a stack of throwaway ones
11:21
so they use it for a few days in hotel
11:23
then when they leave poop get rid of it
11:24
okay so just be ready for that also
11:27
hotels in Europe are a great place for
11:29
breakfast a typical European breakfast
11:31
they call a continental breakfast
11:33
meaning continental Europe
11:34
you're going to have rolls and bread
11:36
slices of cheese slices of meats some
11:39
and then some jams that stuff to put on
11:41
top and usually some cereals and if
11:44
you're nicer place they might have
11:45
scrambled eggs or baker's sausages
11:47
depending where you are so you can get a
11:48
really good breakfast a really good meal
11:50
in the morning to start your day off so
11:52
you can go and explore as much as you
11:54
want and save some money by having not
11:56
having to have lunch or skip a meal be
11:57
so much your great breakfast --is most
12:00
arrests for most breakfasts is in Europe
12:02
or from like 7:00 to 11:00 checkout
12:04
times in Europe usually are between
12:07
eleven and twelve o'clock one of those
12:08
two ones all right another thing you
12:10
want to look at is the hotel bar yes we
12:12
all love the bar for the drinks and the
12:14
snacks and stuff like that
12:15
but also what you need to know is in
12:17
Europe a lot of the stores closed
12:18
relatively early they don't have 24
12:20
hours shopping here so if you need a
12:22
bottle of water because you're thirsty
12:24
hey the hotel bar might be your only
12:27
option whether it's a snack I know we
12:29
were in Norway all the restaurants
12:30
everything was closed you know I went
12:32
down the hotel bar what can I do
12:34
person front tested here come over the
12:36
bar he got me a water and a quick lunch
12:38
this KitKat thing and I was fine another
12:41
thing is if you look into hotels water
12:42
around Europe you can drink it just
12:44
might not taste good so that's why you
12:46
see a lot of Europeans drinking water
12:48
whether with bubbles or without bubbles
12:50
some places like Sweden the tap water so
12:52
good you just want to like sit on
12:53
anything oh so good other places like
12:57
Berlin Berlin's got a lot of chalk in
12:59
the water so you take a drink and you're
13:00
actually thirst year afterwards so
13:02
that's why a lot of Europeans drink the
13:04
bottled water and your hotel bar can
13:06
help you out with that and the last
13:07
thing I want to talk about is if you can
13:08
see I'm a little hot and sweaty here is
13:10
the AC air-conditioning European hotels
13:14
don't always have air-conditioning they
13:16
do usually always
13:17
heating's at least have that or lots of
13:19
blankets to warm up to but some of the
13:21
times there is no AC so be prepared for
13:23
that that's why you know I have actually
13:25
the windows closed and everything so I
13:26
can film but usually you're going to be
13:28
open your windows to let the breeze
13:29
through the hotels may they'll give you
13:31
fans and stuff like that to cool off but
13:34
usually expect probably not too much AC
13:36
now if you're in Greece and stuff like
13:38
that you'll see units up on the wall
13:39
okay well you'll get a remote control
13:41
for that all right so just so you know
13:43
anyway those are some of the things I
13:45
think you need to know about booking
13:47
hotels before you go if you have other
13:49

14:30

14:31
around before I enjoy this fantastic
14:32
city anyway
14:34
choose or alveta Zayin from Salzburg
14:37
Austria bye [~DETAIL_TEXT] => 00:02
hey there fellow travelers mark here
00:05
with Walters world it wouldn't Salzburg
00:07
Austria a great place to go to and we're
00:09
staying the wolf dietrich hotel the
00:11
hotel with obvious is some pretty cool
00:12
design in their rooms and things like
00:14
that what I thought I'd give you is
00:16
basically what you should know about
00:18
European hotels before you come to
00:21
Europe because I'll tell you the Holiday
00:23
Inn Express that you get in Champaign
00:25
Illinois is not the same as the hotel
00:27
you're getting in a Salzburg Austria so
00:29
we're going to do is going to go through
00:30
some of the basic differences so you're
00:32
kind of prepared for your hotel stay in
00:35
Europe okay now I will preface this my
00:38
hotels are pretty different throughout
00:40
Europe but there are some consistencies
00:42
usually aside from this room usually the
00:45
hotels are very small they're much small
00:47
and you have in the US and it's a lot
00:48
more intimate setting so just be ready
00:50
to really get to know your neighbors and
00:52
get to know people in the elevator and
00:53
it breakfasts and things like that okay
00:55
so not as big of rooms and we'll just
00:57
start out with that one fact you're
00:58
gonna have a lot smaller rooms but
01:00
before you actually get your hotel how
01:02
do you book your hotel hotels in Europe
01:04
and bed-and-breakfast in Europe have
01:06
gone all in in online bookings so your
01:09
bookings calm your Trip Advisor's all
01:12
these things you can book through there
01:14
pretty much any accommodation throughout
01:16
Europe and that makes it fantastic so
01:18
you can read the reviews and see if it's
01:20
right for you is it for kids is it for
01:22
families is it for a romantic getaway
01:24
you know these kind of things and who
01:26
the lights come on and everything you
01:28
know what is you're really looking for
01:29
so booking online is a really easy way
01:32
to do it also you can pay that way now
01:34
sometimes you might want special
01:36
requests and a lot of times you're
01:37
booked online through like a TripAdvisor
01:39
bookings those special requests you're
01:41
not always sure if they're gonna
01:42
actually get through so you can also
01:44
call the hotel and believe me they'll
01:46
speak English where they'll find some of
01:47
the speaks English that won't be a
01:49
problem or email them directly because
01:51
again they've gone all in for their
01:53
online presence so they'll have websites
01:55
and Facebook pages and stuff like that
01:57
so you can get your information if you
01:59
need it so if you need a baby bed or an
02:00
extra bed or something like that okay so
02:02
booking Europe simplest can be now next
02:05
thing is when you get to the hotel you
02:07
want to find a check-in okay now
02:09
check-in and Europe usually where you're
02:10
going to have to do you'll need your
02:11
passport and the credit card you booked
02:13
with
02:14
not every place will ask for but make
02:16
make sure you have those relatively easy
02:17
to get now so you're probably come for
02:19
the train station don't have them out
02:21
but you'll have your money about ready
02:22
to get out so if you need to get them
02:23
out you can now probably going to fill
02:26
out on your forms your registration
02:27
you're going to need your birthday
02:29
address typical things you're going to
02:31
need some countries for example Italy
02:33
they need to scan your passport or
02:35
photocopy of your passport and report it
02:37
to the police
02:38
so then you're registered there here in
02:40
Austria they asked for one passport from
02:42
our entire group and that was fine
02:44
because they're the ones that made the
02:45
made a check-in so some places everybody
02:48
in the group will have to put their
02:49
passports in other times only one person
02:51
and that's all okay now what's cool is
02:54
the check-in desks here are usually very
02:56
helpful for example one thing I
02:58
recommend always ask for the tourist map
03:00
when you do go to the hotel downstairs
03:03
the people here at the wolf dietrich
03:04
they got us a map they're circled here
03:06
you were on the hotel or here's the
03:08
hotel map seat seemed a nice little X
03:10
here's where you go here's where I
03:12
recommend you to see go eat and things
03:13
like that
03:14
now the thing is the people I find in
03:16
Europe the hotel staff the front desk
03:18
staff are really well trained and
03:20
telling you where to go eat where to
03:21
drink where to make merry how to see the
03:23
sights what public transport to take so
03:26
that can be really helpful this thing is
03:27
going to be your most helpful get that
03:29
tourist map so you don't have to care
03:30
around your big guidebooks all the time
03:32
you can just have this and I'm gonna
03:34
have your spots marked off okay now once
03:37
you get on check-in you're going to take
03:38
your well and hopefully there's an
03:41
elevator there's not always elevators at
03:43
all these hotels okay so make sure if
03:45
you you have problems going upstairs
03:46
with heavy luggage make sure you ask is
03:48
there an elevator now 99% of the time
03:51
there is but bed and breakfast --is and
03:53
smaller places there may not be okay and
03:55
when you take the elevator what you
03:57
should know is elevators in Europe are
03:59
significantly smaller and then they are
04:01
in the u.s. especially the hotel
04:03
elevators okay so sometimes the
04:05
elevators can take two people up or one
04:06
person in luggage sometimes you'll have
04:08
to actually pull a screen across to
04:11
actually open the door okay and one
04:13
thing that gets Americans kind of mixed
04:15
up when they when they go come to Europe
04:16
is the elevator the ground floor is
04:19
usually zero or G for ground floor or e
04:22
and like for example here and Gasol
04:24
ground floor they have that and then the
04:26
first floor up that's one so you may
04:28
think Oh what says we're on the second
04:30
floor I can walk up two flights of
04:32
stairs
04:32
no that's walking up three flights of
04:34
stairs okay so if you get some big
04:35
luggage that can be a little problematic
04:38
so elevators tiny tiny tiny and you're
04:41
starting one floor up now we've gotten
04:44
to our room now the thing is with your
04:45
rooms here in Europe yes you could have
04:47
keys or you can have the key cards it
04:49
doesn't really matter which one you are
04:51
one thing you might want to know is if
04:53
you get a key that's like a big Bell or
04:55
a big like thing on the end a lot of
04:57
times the smaller hotels and private
05:00
hotels will say please leave your key
05:01
with us when you leave okay that's what
05:03
they have 24-hour front desk they don't
05:06
have 24-hour front desk they're gonna
05:07
let you take your keys don't worry about
05:08
that but just now sometimes you gotta
05:10
leave your keys most the time you've
05:11
done now we're in the room now the most
05:14
important part of your room is your bed
05:16
beds and Europe look if you get a double
05:18
room in Europe it's two single beds okay
05:22
it's not two queen beds like you have at
05:23
a Holiday Inn or a Best Western or
05:26
something like that it's two single beds
05:27
and sometimes now sometimes you get
05:29
lucky and you have a double bed like
05:30
this which doesn't have a crack in it
05:32
but most of the time again when they're
05:34
double beds they're just push together
05:35
okay you have a crack in the middle and
05:37
the funny thing is that crack we've lost
05:39
children we actually asked my dad once
05:42
because the beds separated my that was
05:44
my mom my dad and me we're super hotel
05:46
Frankfort and the cry was thinner that's
05:49
just so you know it accredited ruined
05:51
this with and also my dad goes
05:52
right through the middle
05:53
we've lost Caleb and Liam a couple times
05:55
too so be ready for that crack in the
05:57
bed okay which which might be a little
06:00
shocking also if your travel with a
06:02
friend and you don't feel like being
06:03
very snugly together
06:05
well the beds you can easily separate
06:06
it's no problem okay also the beds here
06:09
a lot of times there's slat beds okay
06:11
there like here beds and so they've wood
06:13
slats underneath if you're a heavy guy
06:15
like me
06:15
you better not be jumping on that bed
06:17
cuz you will snap through it and
06:18
breaking okay not a really cool thing to
06:21
happen but you should be prepared for
06:23
that so you know no joking down the beds
06:24
you see your kids jumping on the bed say
06:26
no no it's going to fall apart okay now
06:28
what are some other things you might
06:29
want to know about hotels in Europe well
06:31
one thing if you want to go to the
06:33
bathroom now in the bathrooms here I'll
06:35
I'll take you to the bathroom okay so
06:37
here's the toilet
06:38
it now obviously the normal sit-down
06:39
toilet you have that Europe the only
06:41
times you ever see the hole in ground
06:42
toilets or kind of public toilets maybe
06:44
someplace in Italy or Greece your if you
06:46
don't see them too often so you're
06:47
always going to have a normal sit-down
06:48
toilet and you'll see there's the two
06:50
buttons up top there's a big button and
06:51
a little button the little button is if
06:54
you do little like pee-pee the big
06:56
button is if you do something bigger
06:57
sometimes you'll see one dot or two dots
07:00
one dot number one two dots number two
07:03
also some hotels in some bathrooms you
07:06
actually have to hold down the button so
07:07
all the water goes so you really control
07:09
the whole flow so if you do your
07:11
business please respect the other people
07:13
after you and make sure it all goes down
07:14
okay now what else do you want to do I
07:17
also want to take a shower when you're
07:18
here okay so we're in the shower area
07:20
the bath area now I'm not going to lie
07:22
to you most hotels in Europe don't have
07:23
the clawfoot you know tub this is
07:25
literally the nicest hotel I've ever
07:27
stayed in Europe it's fantastic
07:29
but there's one thing that they have
07:30
here in their shower bathtub area that
07:33
is very common in Europe and you have
07:35
the hold it shower now the thing is some
07:37
people will say it'll be hanging up on
07:38
the wall and they won't take it off you
07:40
can take it off the wall and use it to
07:42
bathe yourself just fine really great if
07:44
you got kids all kinds of stuff but I
07:46
met a lot of tourists I didn't realize
07:47
oh I can take that off yes that's why it
07:50
has the hose so you can wash around in
07:52
here if you've got kids bathtubs are not
07:55
very common in in the showers and the
07:58
toilets in Europe usually your shower is
08:01
very small and if your big guy like me I
08:03
mean you sometimes you barely fit in ok
08:06
so just be prepared for that um
08:08
sometimes actually seeing showers where
08:10
some of the shower and the toilet are
08:12
almost the same place so just know again
08:14
tiny spaces tiny tiny spaces sometimes
08:17
it's hard to get everything washed every
08:20
time so make sure you're watching ok so
08:22
what are some other things that are
08:23
different by European hotels so another
08:25
thing you might want to know about is
08:26
the TV I know I know
08:28
I'm here to travel I'm here to explore I
08:30
don't have time to watch TV I agree with
08:33
you but the thing is after you go into
08:35
the Salt Mines in the morning and going
08:37
to see the Cathedral in the afternoon
08:38
and then going up to the fortress up on
08:40
them up on the hill in the evening you
08:43
get kind of tired and after you know
08:44
that vina so and all those great
08:45
pastries here you just want to sit back
08:48
relax when you get to the hotel put on
08:50
TV
08:51
to show and go to bed now the thing is
08:53
what you should know is TV in Europe is
08:55
different in every country in terms of
08:57
the language places like Sweden Finland
08:59
Portugal they don't dub it all of it
09:02
will be in English or French or whatever
09:03
with subtitles on the bottom whereas in
09:06
Germany or here in Austria they actually
09:08
dub it into German so you might see your
09:10
favorite show
09:11
Oh Doctor Who's on awesome and Doctor
09:15
Who speaking German what it's because
09:18
here they're dubbing everything and that
09:20
just depends where you go some places
09:22
actually have some channels that have
09:23
both but I will say here should kind of
09:25
give in every country hotel room TV
09:28
Guide you're going to have four or five
09:30
local channels kind of like the ABC
09:32
network or CBS or NBC Fox in the u.s.
09:36
you'll have those you have a couple
09:38
sports channels you're usually Eurosport
09:40
okay you'll have euronews which isn't
09:42
just news at all a bunch of different
09:43
languages and then you're going to have
09:45
a traditional CN international debate
09:48
song or the French TV channel okay arty
09:51
which is Russia today all right
09:53
and then you probably like BBC news
09:55
horse maybe Sky News okay so a lot of
09:57
times what happens is the only time you
09:59
know America has really watched a lot of
10:01
news and these kind of things is when
10:02
they go abroad because that's the only
10:04
English Channel that's on there now what
10:06
are some other differences in the hotel
10:07
now in the US we kind of feel like Wi-Fi
10:10
is our god-given right well in Europe
10:12
it's not always the case but most hotels
10:14
in Europe will have Wi-Fi don't expect a
10:17
super strong signal so you can watch
10:19
Netflix pay Netflix doesn't work in
10:21
every country by the way but don't
10:23
expect a super strong signal if you got
10:25
to do work sometimes you got to go out
10:27
and find internet cafe which are very
10:28
hard to find now now some other things
10:30
that are different so I'll go back to
10:31
the bathroom kind of stuff one thing
10:33
toilets you can throw the toilet paper
10:36
down the the toilet just fine tampons
10:39
and feminine hygiene products usually
10:41
they'll have bags you'll throw them is
10:43
way on the side because a lot of places
10:44
in Europe the piping isn't can't handle
10:46
that kind of stuff so those kind of
10:48
products so it makes your junior is not
10:50
to run stuff down the toilet okay now
10:52
another thing in terms of the tours are
10:55
the toilets and stuff like that are the
10:57
towels now just like every hotel the
10:59
towels here are like drying with a sheet
11:02
okay I'll just tell you about
11:03
that so expect to use all your towels in
11:06
Europe they do not give you washcloths
11:08
okay the last ten hotels I've been to
11:10
one place gave me washcloths so that's
11:11
the own one I've ever remembered
11:12
actually giving me washcloths so if
11:14
you're a washcloth person like my
11:16
mother's a like psychotic about it and
11:18
joseline is psychotic about it they
11:20
actually bring a stack of throwaway ones
11:21
so they use it for a few days in hotel
11:23
then when they leave poop get rid of it
11:24
okay so just be ready for that also
11:27
hotels in Europe are a great place for
11:29
breakfast a typical European breakfast
11:31
they call a continental breakfast
11:33
meaning continental Europe
11:34
you're going to have rolls and bread
11:36
slices of cheese slices of meats some
11:39
and then some jams that stuff to put on
11:41
top and usually some cereals and if
11:44
you're nicer place they might have
11:45
scrambled eggs or baker's sausages
11:47
depending where you are so you can get a
11:48
really good breakfast a really good meal
11:50
in the morning to start your day off so
11:52
you can go and explore as much as you
11:54
want and save some money by having not
11:56
having to have lunch or skip a meal be
11:57
so much your great breakfast --is most
12:00
arrests for most breakfasts is in Europe
12:02
or from like 7:00 to 11:00 checkout
12:04
times in Europe usually are between
12:07
eleven and twelve o'clock one of those
12:08
two ones all right another thing you
12:10
want to look at is the hotel bar yes we
12:12
all love the bar for the drinks and the
12:14
snacks and stuff like that
12:15
but also what you need to know is in
12:17
Europe a lot of the stores closed
12:18
relatively early they don't have 24
12:20
hours shopping here so if you need a
12:22
bottle of water because you're thirsty
12:24
hey the hotel bar might be your only
12:27
option whether it's a snack I know we
12:29
were in Norway all the restaurants
12:30
everything was closed you know I went
12:32
down the hotel bar what can I do
12:34
person front tested here come over the
12:36
bar he got me a water and a quick lunch
12:38
this KitKat thing and I was fine another
12:41
thing is if you look into hotels water
12:42
around Europe you can drink it just
12:44
might not taste good so that's why you
12:46
see a lot of Europeans drinking water
12:48
whether with bubbles or without bubbles
12:50
some places like Sweden the tap water so
12:52
good you just want to like sit on
12:53
anything oh so good other places like
12:57
Berlin Berlin's got a lot of chalk in
12:59
the water so you take a drink and you're
13:00
actually thirst year afterwards so
13:02
that's why a lot of Europeans drink the
13:04
bottled water and your hotel bar can
13:06
help you out with that and the last
13:07
thing I want to talk about is if you can
13:08
see I'm a little hot and sweaty here is
13:10
the AC air-conditioning European hotels
13:14
don't always have air-conditioning they
13:16
do usually always
13:17
heating's at least have that or lots of
13:19
blankets to warm up to but some of the
13:21
times there is no AC so be prepared for
13:23
that that's why you know I have actually
13:25
the windows closed and everything so I
13:26
can film but usually you're going to be
13:28
open your windows to let the breeze
13:29
through the hotels may they'll give you
13:31
fans and stuff like that to cool off but
13:34
usually expect probably not too much AC
13:36
now if you're in Greece and stuff like
13:38
that you'll see units up on the wall
13:39
okay well you'll get a remote control
13:41
for that all right so just so you know
13:43
anyway those are some of the things I
13:45
think you need to know about booking
13:47
hotels before you go if you have other
13:49
questions about booking hotels please

Video subtitles: Monaco - The secrets of a true luxury stay - LUXE.TV

00:02
A paradise on earth that’s a little more than 2 square kilometres, where sun
00:07
yachts and luxury cars abound and where some of the wealthiest people in the
00:11
world choose to call home, welcome to Monaco.
00:28
The Principality of Monaco and its famous Rock have something to dream
00:33
about and it is real. The prestige and reputation of this attractive territory,
00:37
enclosed in the French department of the Alpes Maritimes, extends well beyond its
00:41
borders, so well in fact, that each day, several thousand tourists, both French
00:47
and foreign, engulf the narrow streets of the Princely rock.
00:59
An enchanting site that will no longer be a secret!
01:02
From its most luxurious hotels to its emblematic Monte Carlo Casino, not forgetting its boutiques,
01:09
restaurants, billionaire apartments, and its spots for relaxation and pleasure.
01:35
For the moment, we drop our luggage and enter one of the flagship hotels of the
01:39
Societe Bains des Mer, SBM, the Hotel Hermitage Monte Carlo. It is one of the
01:50
most intimate palaces of the Principality. Overlooking the Port Hercule,
01:54
it offers a very luxurious atmosphere in a perfectly conserved Belle Epoque decor.
02:05
The establishment is home to no less than 278
02:08
rooms, 76 suites and junior suites as well as 12 Monte Carlo Diamond suites.
02:23
And with all self-respecting palaces
02:30
the Vistamar and its chef, offer us an explosive taste of flavours.
02:51
Located in the middle of the Carre d’Or, the Hermitage invites us to visit the
02:55
surrounding on foot, where all the luxury boutiques are located.
03:06
A quick two minute walk is all that’s needed to be face to face with the Monte-Carlo pavilions.
03:12
Here, the most prestigious brands have their showcase,
03:14
whether it’s haute couture, timepieces, or jewellery.
03:23
From the top, the landscape is beautiful, especially with the famous Monaco square.
03:33
Nerve centre of the Principality, the Place du Casino is surrounded by 3
03:37
mythical buildings: the Hotel de Paris, the Cafe de Paris,
03:41
and the Monte-Carlo Casino where you’ll find many powerful engines roaring all day long.
03:57
But while some people find real pleasure in smelling the exhaust fumes of
04:01
supercars, others prefer instead to breathe the sea air. So we head over to the Larvotto district.
04:14
Here, the roaring engines have been replaced by the sound
04:17
of the lapping waves on the beach. Between exploring the sea depths or
04:21
walking along the Champions Promenade, there is always something to do. Unless
04:26
you prefer to wander along Princesse Grace Avenue, where restaurants, car
04:31
showrooms, and boutiques are located.
04:36
On the way, we stop off at Loona. A very young ready-to-wear boutique that wants
04:41
to stand out from the others. Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel, Gucci, and others have no place here.
04:47
There’s no luxury at Loona, just timeless chic.
04:54
We created a place to represent independent brands, we have even created
05:01
our own brand Loona, which is also available in other boutiques in Los Angeles,
05:05
Tokyo, and Dubai.The clientele come here to find quality at a
05:10
a reasonable price, here you’re not paying for a name, you’re paying for the creation.
05:24
A 200 square metre boutique over 3 floors where leather, silk and cashmere blend
05:29
together, on creations that go from the simple accessory to casual chic clothing,
05:33
and of course, the must have evening dress…
05:42
The most sought after are the dresses for the galas, because Monaco is well known for
05:49
a lot of galas so you need beautiful dresses, long, and a little sexy. I’ve also started making dresses
05:58
for little girls who go with their moms - it's very cute,
06:02
very pretty, and it works very well.
06:09
Among the VIP clients of the brand, model, actress and TV personality Victoria Silvstedt.
06:18
The Swedish beauty spent some time shopping here before heading
06:21
to a photo shoot at the Sporting Monte-Carlo. Curious, we follow along…..
06:41
Bye Bye Victoria… And now we head to lunch… On the way, we stop by the
06:48
Grimaldi Forum, before finding new landscapes in the Japanese garden.
07:00
This surprising 7,000 m2 green space is an authentic work of art
07:05
harmoniously blending stone, water, and vegetation where a zen atmosphere reigns.
07:19
A little higher up, on rue de Portier, we arrive at Sensais for our first
07:24
gourmet pause of the day. Jean-Pierre Escande, the owner, is waiting for us, with
07:29
the idea of having us discover new flavours. After running a hotel restaurant
07:34
for 32 years in the Principality, the idea of Sensais took shape. The concept
07:40
is simple, rediscover the real taste of seasonal products.
07:48
The name was found by my wife, Sensais, the senses and the seasons,
07:58
so it’s a mix between the two
08:02
And it’s a bit of the theme and concept that I wanted to create - that of seasonal Mediterranean cuisine.
08:06
We’ll try to work with producers, fishermen, and winemakers, to
08:11
highlight them and put their products on our menu when the land and the sea give
08:15
us the right moment.
08:26
It’s a restaurant that is in perpetual movement. In order to awaken all the
08:30
senses, music, flavours, and products will change
08:33
over the months and seasons. It’s the same thing for cocktails, wines, and
08:38
champagnes, that will accompany this simple and minimalist menu, in order to
08:42
favour quality over quantity. The menus are scheduled to be changed,
08:51
not necessarily every month but
08:54
during the month, certain dishes will disappear to be replaced by others
08:58
depending on all the products that we have. We’ll have a restaurant menu of
09:02
about 14 dishes, desserts included. But not only that. We also have what we
09:07
call the daily suggestions with 5 or 6 additional dishes. And we’ll also have,
09:11
for the lounge, little sensais, little dishes where we can introduce our cuisine to our clientele.
09:30
To each season its own products, and we must confess that we have done rather well during our visit.
09:35
Between this square sesame bread, Italian cuttlefish
09:38
salad with local citrus fruits, as a starter, and this Piedmontese potato as
09:43
large gnocchi, comte cheese slices, roasted porcini
09:46
mushrooms in Madeira and Catalan Picada, spread over two dishes, all our senses
09:52
were certainly awakened. And what about this Middle Eastern salad with Shawarma
09:57
and its mix of 7 spices…Or this salad adorned with sublime slices of
10:02
of monk fish cooked at low temperature.
10:11
There are, however, no seasons when it comes to real estate.
10:15
In Monaco, in summer or winter, the demand for real estate is incessant and apartments are sold at
10:20
prices that are sometimes... surreal. According to the IMSEE, there were 33
10:26
sales in 2016 for a total amount of 453.5 million euros.
10:36
The one we are about to visit is estimated at several tens of millions of
10:40
euros. Discretion is required, the exact price was not told to us.
10:45
It is on the 42nd floor of the Odeon Tower, the most luxurious and the highest high rise in
10:51
Monaco, that we find Angela Kleiber and 2 members of her team. According to the
10:55
owner of Lorenza von Stein Agency, real estate in Monaco still has many beautiful days ahead…
11:03
Monaco is currently very fashionable, it seems that currently the whole world wants to settle in Monaco
11:14
and thanks to buildings like the Odeon Tower we now have real luxury here with exceptional apartments
11:19
that also represent the demands of real estate, in other words,
11:23
very large spaces with breathtaking views of the principality and of course
11:27
demanding customers who want the most complete luxury.
11:42
There is the extension on the sea which is currently
11:44
being created which will bring us more apartments, also individual houses (..) too
11:48
have sea front villas in Monaco - it’s going to be a little bit of a revolution here.
11:58
A nice little project indeed, but back to our billionaire apartment, which is for sale, in case you were interested.
12:04
Almost 600 m2 of floor space and endless services... enough to meet any demand.
13:06
The future owner will have no problem finding the Prince’s Palace in the distance, a must see attraction when
13:12
you visit Monaco. Erected on a fortress established by the Genoese in 1215,
13:18
the Prince’s Palace houses splendours that retrace seven centuries of uninterrupted sovereignty.
13:27
Open each year between March 31st and October 14th, excluding Formula 1 Grand Prix
13:32
weekend, the Grand Apartments are accessible to the curious visitor.
13:37
From the Palace Square, there is a breathtaking view of Monaco. On the left,
13:43
it’s Port Hercule that dominates. On the right, it’s the district of Fontvieille that reveals all its qualities.
13:52
But let’s look a little further… We cross the Monegasque border, and head to Menton,
13:57
where we have an appointment with Marie-Olga Charriol, who is in the middle of a
14:01
photo shoot for the new campaign of her collection of bracelets called Les Debutants…
14:06
In front of the camera, the models are also making their own debut…
14:28
The ideal is to take several bracelets that we put with each
14:32
other (..) we call it Bangle Mania, it's very trendy.
14:51
The particularity of these bracelets is that
14:55
they are affordable, this is your first pretty bracelet that can be bought when
14:58
you’re 20. Bracelets that contain the DNA of the brand, namely
15:07
these hand braided steel cables.
15:17
Available in several colours, all you need to do is choose!
15:27
We’re not sure what you think, but for us, this sumptuous residence with a
15:31
swimming pool has given us a few ideas…
15:43
We head back for a moment of pure relaxation.... at the Thermes Marins de Monte-Carlo.
15:55
Spread over almost 6,600 m2 on 4 levels, the
16:00
Thermes Marins is in fact a Spa and Wellness and preventive healthcare centre of the
16:04
Hotel de Paris and the Hotel Hermitage. And contrary to popular belief, the
16:09
centre is accessible to all, even non-residents.
16:17
Any client, local, regional, who just wants to spend a moment here, 1 hour or
16:23
to have breakfast, have a coffee or have a treatment, of course is welcome at the Thermes Marins.
16:36
And as for what’s on offer? Like any self-respecting SPA, there are
16:43
all the body and face treatments, which can be cosmetic, aesthetic or massages.
16:46
but we are a little more than a Spa since we also propose a concept (..) of
16:50
health or of overall beauty that offers not just a doctor who will give all their
16:55
advice in nutrition and micronutrition, but also a complementary nutritionist.
17:06
Equipped with, amongst other things, a salt water pool heated to 30 degrees,
17:11
a hamamm, an outdoor jacuzzi, and even a cryotherapy unit, the Thermes Marin Monte-Carlo
17:17
also has a restaurant and a fitness centre…..the perfect place to burn
17:21
a few calories before the poker chips burn a hole in your pocket in the sublime Monte-Carlo Casino.
17:38
A true work of art built in 1863 that we owe to famous architect Charles Garnier.
17:44
A unique place, perfect for adrenaline addicts.
18:19
The game rooms are admirably decorated with stained glass, sculptures, and
18:25
incredible allegoric paintings. An ideal place to try and break the bank!
18:40
From the Europe Room to the White Room and the Medecin Room, the emblematic
18:45
private room of the Monte-Carlo Casino, the atmosphere here is extraordinary
18:49
Built in 1910 by Monegasque Francois Medecin, this private game room houses
18:55
the old elevator cage in cast iron that used to lead directly to the Cabaret.
19:20
Still in perfect working order, today it leads to the Buddha Bar that has turne
19:25
into an institution in Monaco since its opening in 2010.
19:44
At night, many people come to enjoy its cosy atmosphere and cocktails, not to
19:49
mention the finesse of its cuisine and its multi-influenced decor.
19:57
Food and decoration are what counts for many people, but music also plays a lot in the concept
20:02
It was an inspiration with my husband, (...) we traveled
20:05
a lot in Asia, in Thailand, and as for the inspiration for the dishes, it comes from Hawaii.
20:31
It's a "World" concept because you can
20:37
have tiles from Portugal, with furniture from the Empress of China, and next to it
20:41
you have American and Scandinavian influences.
20:58
Doors open at 5pm… And the vibe, that can buzz until 5 in the morning…..
21:06
Understood… It is time for us to return to the hotel after this busy day on the
21:21
Princely Rock… with the hopes that we’ve given you a few good ideas for an upcoming city trip…
