It's difficult to miss the giant building that is the Cité Radieuse. It has more than 300 flats, or in other words, is home to 1,200 people. It isn't exactly easy to find the entrance to the Hotel Le Corbusier. However, you won't have any trouble finding help. Head up to the third floor. Listed as a National Monument, the building is unlike any other. Both inside and outside, colourful touches brighten up the grey surfaces and dark hallways, like the touches of wood on the hotel's façade, which doesn't go unnoticed. A wooden desk, two leather chairs and a bookshelf make up the decor in the small reception styled to look like an office. Right after this is a bar, a restaurant and a terrace. Although you have to exit the establishment to access the common areas (which can also be used by those who live in the Cité Radieuse), at least they exist and are plentiful: a rooftop terrace with a wading pool, a jogging trail, an open air theatre, a cinema-club, a tennis court and a multitude of shops (a bakery, a library, and an art gallery, etc.). Whether you like it or not, you can't be indifferent to the architect's genius. Everything here has been calculated to the millimetre according to the very precise rules made up by Corbusier himself.
