Manga Review: Hotel La Vie En Rose


Hotel La Vie En Rose by Toyota Yuu 4 chapters-completed

Tachibana Kaori stayed at Hotel La Vie En Rose for a night but in the morning she finds out that she has Y8,000 bill to settle. Now she has to work in the hotel to settle her debt. Sounds familiar? Not only does the debt is like a play with numbers of the infamous 8 million yen vase, the hotel specifically caters the rich, female clientele that's reminiscent of Ouran Host Club. Aside from the debt trope, there are also touches of makeover, gender bender and sports too. The bishies also represent all the job/occupation trope there is. There's the hairstylist, butler, beautician, chef etc. At first I find the supporting guys just a filler characters to get the reverse harem effect. But as they made appearances I find myself wishing there's more for them in the story. The romance was not full blown but the tension is there which makes it adorable. If you want to just pass the time and have some short, light reading then this one's for you. I also wish there's a hotel like this in real life but if you search for the hotel name, there's one in France and another in Thailand.
