Hi hotel


Its so grey here at the moment i can't wait for the summer (if it ever comes) so i'm dreaming of holidays. Hi hotel is a boutique hotel in Nice, France it was designed by Matali crasset. Its a really sleek modern place with white walls and bold colour brought through in the furniture and touches on the walls. Each room has a projector tv, there are no mini bars in the rooms but each floor has a vending machine stocked with champagne. love it!!!
