An impressive artwork created by the legendary designer is found in Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo
It was around 2013 when Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo revealed a 65-foot glass mural designed by Karl Lagerfeld in its renovated pool area! The amazing installation is made up of 15 glass panels, portraying Ulysses’ journey. The black and white photographs feature Karl’s favourite muses, including model Baptiste Giabiconi.
Facing the Mediterranean Sea, the Metropole Monte-Carlo is a modern hotel with a wonderful pedigree. In 1886, the Monte-Carlo Hotel Company Ltd built it on land which previously belonged to Pope Leon XIII. Soon after, the most demanding international clientele was won over by the unostentatious luxury of this quiet hotel built in the “Belle Époque” style.
In 2004, the Metropole Palace sold the hotel to its successor. The Hotel Metropole Monte‐Carlo, which became a contemporary hotel with a strong heritage. Its new image combines a glorious past with a Mediterranean freshness and features sophisticated maximalist interiors curated by famous designer Jacques Garcia.
An exceptional setting imagined and designed by Karl Lagerfeld was added after some years in the pool and lounge area which houses also Odyssey restaurant. Highlighting the quality of seasonal products, the menu is created by multi-awarded chef Joël Robuchon.
