Podobno nie ważne co o tobie piszą, żeby tylko nie przekręcali nazwiska. Zachowałem więc oryginalną pisownię. IRH zorganizował ostatnią konferencję przed zamknięciem starego Europejskiego, więc z ciekawości wszedłem na stronę Raffles, co zamierzają.
Raffles Europejski, Warsaw, scheduled for opening in 2017, not only brings a new luxury hotel to this fast changing city, but also heralds the next chapter for one of the city’s most iconic and best loved buildings. Hotel Europejski originally opened in 1857, immediately stepping into the spotlight as one of the most luxurious hotels in the Russian Empire. During World War II, however, it was almost completely destroyed. The current hotel was re-built in stages throughout the 1950s, eventually re-opening in 1962.
In the historic district of Warsaw, next to the Presidential Palace, this is a significant restoration of a landmark building. The restoration team has worked closely with the local conservation body and with the utmost respect to ensure the hotel’s heritage and character are preserved. The interiors have been entrusted to the award-winning British design company, Fox Linton Associates, whose work includes One Aldwych and The Wellesley in London (both set in buildings of significant architectural note), Barnsley House in the Cotswolds; Le Gray in Beirut and Carlyle Bay in Antigua, as well as many private residences.
Raffles Europejski, Warsaw will offer its guests 103 elegant guestrooms and suites; a restaurant with an outdoor terrace with seasonal menus showcasing Poland’s rich produce and cuisine; a bar and cigar lounge; and a pâtisserie that will evoke Hotel Europejski’s fascinating story, tempting guests and locals with chocolates, cakes, ice-cream and other sweet delicacies. The hotel will also house a spa featuring six treatment rooms.
