Vienna House will open a new 164-room hotel in Warsaw’s Mokotów business district in the summer of 2018.
The new hotel, Vienna House Mokotów Warsaw, is being positioned as a casual four-star superior business hotel with a combination of industrial design, modern, green guesthouse culture and a culinary journey of discovery that is based on sustainability values.
Warsaw has experienced significant growth in the last ten years and has become a globally leading destination with a focus on culture, politics and business.
The district of Mokotów, located near Warsaw’s Chopin international airport, has developed from an industrial area into a booming business district.
“Opening a hotel in Warsaw was a natural step for us.
“We have been managing hotels in Poland very successfully for many years, including a resort and several business and city hotels,” explained Rupert Simoner, chief executive, Vienna House.
“The new Vienna House brand hotel confirms our growth strategy as well as our commitment to the Polish market.
“And I am sure that one or more hotels will follow,” Simoner added.
The owner of the new hotel is private equity fund Garvest based in Polish Poznań.
Vienna House Mokotów Warsaw will be managed under a lease agreement.
The investment volume amounts to about €22 million.
The leitmotif of the new Vienna House will touch on the industrial past of the location and the zeitgeist of the booming district.
This will be reflected in the visual concept, based on a design by Polish architectural firm Jems Architekci.
The focus of all activity will be the hotel lobby, which will fulfil the wishes of the modern, cosmopolitan guest.
Thanks to tables and chairs that can be easily grouped into new arrangements, the cosy lobby will present itself with a new look every day so that guests are constantly discovering different perspectives and possibilities.
Gone is the classic reception.
The employees are authentic hosts and the check-in – if not already done via mobile – is performed casually upon arrival.
