The grand hotel of feelings Cover

Welcome to the Grand Hotel of Feelings, where every new day has a surprise in store. The guests of this extraordinary hotel could not be more different: From loud anger to small voiced sadness, everything is there. While some emotions make pleasant guests, others are quite exhausting for the hotel manager. But this is no reason for any of them to be turned away at the hotel entrance, because one thing’s for sure: In the Grand Hotel of Feelings, there’s a room available for everyone. And just as the guests arrive again and again, sooner or later they’ll continue on their journey elsewhere.
