The ground and the first floor will undergo a major makeover. The appearance of the entire hotel lobby jointly with the bar and the restaurant-lounge will be changed, and a new conference room will be added to the existing conference facilities. The bar will be moved to the generally accessible part of the hotel to be open also to customers who are not hotel guests.
"After completion of the works currently underway, the interior of the Golden Tulip hotel is going to assume an exceptional and luxurious look as it will be finished in marble and other natural materials" – says Andrzej Makola, an architect, the design's author and the owner of Makola Projekt Studio.
New floors made of light-toned granite will adore the entire hotel lobby. The reception hall now moved to the left of the main entrance, has now assumed an extremely modern look kept in minimalist style. It is dominated by simple, clear-cut forms finished in such contrasting materials as travertine, veneered boards in dark chestnut colour and stainless steel. Custom-made, modern dark-brown lamps will hang over the reception desk. Rough Slabs of Travertine Navona, a material with characteristic porous surface, will provide a natural and at the same time elegant backdrop for the reception area.
The interior of the hotel restaurant will be also transformed, by using new, tailor-made furniture. A natural and at the same time elegant character of the interior will be achieved with use of light-toned granite floor and parquet flooring of exotic wood and wall decorations consisting of joined irregular pieces of rough structural stone, so-called slate. They will be properly illuminated to expose the interesting forms of the the sandstone they are made of.
"The introduced changes will lend a fresh and distinguished appearance to the interior. They will crown and lend a final touch to the transformation of Kyriad Prestige hotel into Golden Tulip, a flagship facility of this brand in Poland" – says Alicja Huziuk-Raith, the Regional Manager in Louvre Hotels Group for Poland.
