The hotel booking website sets up a page for the fictional European hotel for users to praise or bash

Wes Anderson's 2014 film The Grand Budapest Hotel revolves around a fictional hotel in the equally fictional Republic of Zubrowka, where a lobby boy and a hotel manager are out to get a valuable painting in the backdrop of a massive war. Anderson's bright and wondrous movie, highlighting the beautiful old nature of the hotel, has inspired many works from fans. TripAdvisor, though, has taken a step forward by creating a fake page for the hotel, allowing users to write in their own reviews.
