Hotels
POLAND The five-star Nobu Hotel Warsaw is to open on June 2nd – its first hotel in Central and Eastern Europe.

The Nobu Hotel Warsaw is under construction at the junction of ul. Wilcza and ul. Koszykowa in Warsaw city centre. This involves the extensive refurbishment of the existing Rialto hotel and the addition a new v-shaped, seven-storey wing at the confluence of the two streets. It will feature multi-coloured balconies planted with greenery and will offer 120 luxury guestrooms and conference rooms as well as a fitness zone and the Nobu restaurant.

Medusa Group is responsible for the interior design, which will be dominated by simple materials such as concrete, wood, stone, glass. Each of the guest-rooms has been individually designed and furnished with art deco antiques.

The history of the Nobu brand goes back to Los Angeles in the late 1980s, when Robert De Niro invested in a restaurant owned by chef Nobu Matsuhisa. A few years later, together with Meir Teper, they opened their first Nobu Restaurant in Manhattan.

“I am taking part of New York with me to Poland,” Robert De Niro has announced. The five-star Hotel Nobu Warsaw will be the 18th hotel of the chain and the Nobu restaurant will be one of 40 across the world.
