Mojito. Macarena. Monokini. All good things in Summer begin with an M! Including this year’s summer talk show, called, quite simply: Hotel M. A show full of Merry Men and woMen, with a Magnificent quiz, plus live Music every day. And not forgetting of course, the Most Marvellous of hosts: Marcel Vanthilt.

To be broadcast live from the town square in Roeselare, from May 26 to July 3, and then from the beach in Knokke-Heist, from July 28 to August 31. 

Talk and quiz

This summer, Marcel will welcome over 200 national and international guests. Big names, small names, well-known and unknown people: anyone hitting the day’s headlines, or with an amazing story to tell may find themselves checking into Hotel M.

But Hotel M is More than a talk show. Every night the two Main guests will compete head to head in a quiz about the (global) events of the day, and also about each other. The winner of the day gets the chance to answer the M-question, which finally determines who takes home the much-desired M-trophy.

The Selfies

Every day, Millions of people worldwide throw a selfie online and share one Moment from their lives with the rest of the world. The selfie is a phenomenon on its own. This summer, Hotel M will turn it into an even bigger phenomenon, with the help of The Selfies: five Flemish female celebrities who – in turn – share with us a few moments in their lives. 

Live Music

As in previous years, we finish each episode with a live top Musical performance in the square or on the beach. In Hotel M’s first week, we welcome Hooverphonic, Michael Lanzo ,The Sore Losers and  Gers Pardoel. 

The Hotel M-photo booth

Every night, the show itself can be followed on the square or at the beach on a large screen, and occasionally, there will be live acts outside the main area as well.  The audience will also get the chance to commemorate their visit to Hotel M by taking a selfie at the Hotel M photo booth. Their selfie will immediately appear on the Facebook page of Hotel M, and each day, one selfie will be rewarded with an exclusive Hotel M beach towel.

Hotel M: the M in your suMMer. Every Monday through Thursday and every Sunday on Eén.
