The decorator showroom of the Párisi Udvar Hotel, expected to be opened by autumn 2018, has been completed. The 110-room hotel, which is soon to become the second European hotel to join The Unbound Collection by Hyatt, will be furnished in a refined and classical style. The showroom, where five-star elegance is mixed with Moorish elements, gives a foretaste of this.
The newest and currently only Hyatt hotel in Hungary is being constructed in one of Budapest’s most iconic buildings. The hotel, to be managed by Mellow Mood Hotels, will feature 110 guest rooms (including 18 suites), conference rooms, which are able to seat a total of 230 people, a spa and wellness center, a restaurant, a café and a bar for the enjoyment of guests. The food and beverage outlets as well as numerous shops will be situated within the unique Párisi Udvar arcade, under the building’s cupolas.
The American hotel chain is providing guidance to ensure that the hotel will meet the international Hyatt standards in every asspect, said Tamás Fazekas, General Manager of Párisi Udvar Hotel: “The rules of Hyatt are extremely stringent and, in many cases, regulate the tiniest details. The strict quality requirements serve the purpose of ensuring that the customer experience guests enjoy day to day are consistent all over the world. Naturally, we pay maximum attention to every component, from the materials used in the rooms, to furniture and the selection of service providers, for we intend to provide the highest standard of service also through this.”
The Hyatt standards place great emphasis on design, as is evident in the showroom, which has just been completed, with its fine elegance and Moorish style elements. One of the key requirements is the “Bedding Concept”, which is supposed to guarantee the most comfortable and relaxing sleeping experience possible: the use of synthetic materials, among others, is prohibited and only the best quality down pillows and quilts are allowed. In addition, even the material of the upholstery and the cladding is specified, so only wool carpets and marble bathroom units may be used in the rooms.
A further requirement for services is the application of the most modern Property Management System (PMS) which connects to the central reservation system of Hyatt and includes convenience features like online check-in or express check-out. Through this franchise membership, Párisi Udvar will have the opportunity to utilize other systems of the hotel chain, for example, the Hyatt Loyalty Program ant the quality assurance software.
Kroki Studio was responsible for the interior design of Párisi Udvar, the F&B design concept was developed by Blues Sky Hospitality Ltd., a British company, while the construction contract was awarded to Market Építő Zrt.
The construction work is being carried out simultaneously with the design of the interior and the equipment.
Project Manager János Hermesz provided further information: “During the past six months, we have come across serious static problems, which were not indicated in the former documentation of the building or building diagnostics, as a result, the time frame planned for the construction has been extended. This means that the structural engineering part of the project will be completed at the end of February and, in the following six months, the facade will be finished, the cupolas of the arcade will be restored, the scaffolding will be removed and we will open the building in the autumn.”
