Main Plot

A writer encounters the owner of an aging high-class hotel, who tells him of his early years serving as a lobby boy in the hotel's glorious years under an exceptional concierge.


  • Ralph Fiennes plays the role of Gustave H., a charismatic concierge who gets caught up in a murder mystery.
  • F. Murray Abraham's character plays the older version of Zero Moustafa, who narrates the story of the Grand Budapest Hotel.
  • Mathieu Amalric plays Serge X, a villainous art dealer who tries to frame Gustave H. for murder.


In the end, the Grand Budapest Hotel is shown as a dilapidated ruin, symbolizing the passage of time. Zero, now an old man, visits the hotel's memorial plaque with his family. As he sits in the hotel's ruins, he remembers his time with Gustave H., and how their friendship shaped his life. Zero reflects on the impermanence of things, but also on the lasting impact of love and friendship in a changing world.
