The Europejski's new look,

NEW HOTEL

An Artful Restoration
A Warsaw landmark reemerges with contemporary flair.
In pre-WWII Warsaw, the city's most coveted rooms belonged to the Hotel Europejski, a neo-Renaissance grande dame built by Enrico Marconi in
1857. Artists kept their studios in guest rooms, aristocrats mingled at lavish balls, and writers and poets penned works in the patisserie. After the city
was largely destroyed in the war, the hotel was rebuilt, and it changed hands and functions multiple times in the ensuing decades. Enter the venerable
Raffles group, which signed on in 2013 for an extensive twenty-first-century reboot.
When the Raffles Europejski Warsaw opens this spring, its 106 rooms and suites will be among the city's largest accommodations, with oak
floors, corner libraries, and bespoke, locally made furniture. Post-Communist Warsaw has become one of Europe's most inspiring contemporary
art hubs, which is evident throughout the hotel: Rooms and common spaces feature works by Polish artists, and a giant mural by modernist painter
Jaroslaw Flicinski anchors the Long Bar. The restaurant, bedecked in blue and white in a nod to Polish ceramic traditions, overlooks Pilsudski Square
and the Saxon Garden. The hotel's updates, while sleek and modern, preserve the palatial building's historic footprint. The Europejski is reclaiming
its place as one of Warsaw's most buzzed-about addresses. Doubles from $275, including round-trip private airport transfers, breakfast daily, a $100
hotel credit, and a semiprivate city tour with the hotel's historian.
