€42m investment transforms Bucharest bank into opulent hotel

by | 13 Sep 2021 | Hotel Openings, Projects

The former home of Marmorosch-Blank Bank in Romania’s capital has been converted into a 217-room hotel trading under Marriott International’s Autograph Collection brand.

An elegant building in Bucharest’s Old Town has been given a whole new lease of life.

Celebrating the bank’s architectural assets

The much-anticipated opening of The Marmorosch Bucharest, Autograph Collection represents the culmination of a €42 million investment programme and three years of restoration work to preserve the building’s art deco and art nouveau architectural heritage. It sits within an elegant property that once housed the powerful Marmorosch-Blank Bank.

Autograph Collection’s first property in Romania enjoys a prime location in the heart of the historic Old Town neighbourhood.

An inspired F&B programme

The Marmorosch Bucharest, Autograph Collection features 217 guestrooms, a fitness centre and a contemporary spa with indoor pool and treatment rooms. Functions, meanwhile, can be hosted across four event rooms spanning 3,939 sq ft.

There are also no fewer than four F&B outlets onsite, catering for a variety of food and drink requirements. Highlights include relaxed French fine-dining restaurant Blank Bar & Lounge, serving cuisine inspired by the belle epoque, and The Vault, a bar that cheekily nods to the property’s banking past by crowning specially designed cocktails with edible gold flakes.
