For many professionals, staying at a hotel during a business trip is a dull and uninspiring experience, but the Joke Hotel is designed to make stays as joyful as possible. Located between Montmartre and Opera in Paris, the Joke Hotel's interior design evokes the pleasant nostalgia of childhood, with bold patterns, bright colors, and innocent tchotchkes throughout.

To be sure, the Joke Hotel is for adults, though one can be excused for thinking its a hotel exclusively for children. The rooms each have their own themes, but they are all replete with various stuffed animals and other childhood toys. The common areas are equally whimsical; most noteworthy are the cups of crayons and candies that sit on all the communal tables. Further, those tables were inspired by darts (on the tabletops) and pickup sticks (on the legs.)
