Hotel Bristol, which now houses 168 rooms and 38 suites, is one of the oldest hotels in Poland. It was first opened in 1901 by Ignacy Paderewski, a famous Polish composer and pianist, who later became prime minister.

The hotel’s most prominent former guests include: Pablo Picasso, Queen Elisabeth II, John F. Kennedy and the Rolling Stones.

Earlier this year, the building underwent a €13 million refurbishment and was included in Starwood Hotels’ Luxury Collection, which comprises the hotelier’s 80 best hotels in the world. After the renovations, the lobby was enlarged and moved to its original place.

Advisory Jones Lang LaSalle brokered the deal.

This deal underlines the strong investor appetite we are currently seeing for hotels in Central and Eastern Europe,” said Christoph Härle, CEO Continental Europe at Jones Lang LaSalle Hotels & Hospitality Group. “We are confident that the transaction markets will continue to develop positively in the coming years in Poland, one of the most vibrant economies in Europe.”
