The lobby (above) and ballroom (below) certainly look grand, with the latter having an elaborate coffered ceiling and wood paneling throughout.
Despite the classic surroundings, it looks like the design isn’t afraid of a little modernity, judging from the bar and futuristic stools in the restaurant below (presuming this is what it will all look like in the end of course). There will be a cigar lounge and bar with outdoor terrace. A spa complex will include a fitness center and indoor swimming pool.
The rooms continue the modern vibe, mixing grey tones and contemporary furniture with the building’s classic features and high ceilings. Among the 143 rooms are 35 suites, with all accommodation ranging from 430 to 1,800 square feet.
It’s too early to talk rates, but we’d expect them to start around €300 ($400) a night. We'll keep you posted as we find out more.
