Tobaco Hotel is located in the centre of Łódź, among historic tenement houses and old factory buildings. The hotel is part of the historic factory building complex. Since 1895, Karol Kretschmer had operated a wool textile factory there. In 1932, the National Cigarette Factory opened on the former textile factory premises. Nowadays, the whole building complex has been modernised and adapted to housing and hotel purposes.

The hotel’s interior has been designed by the “EC-5″ studio. The interiors reflect the spirit of the 50s and 60s. The dominant colours, both in hotel rooms and communal areas, are steel gray and vivid blue, violet and green.  Many interior furnishings, as well as most furniture, have been made of walnut veneer, the finishing of which is high gloss and matt. Dark and vivid colours have been confronted with white walls, floor and window decoration. Thanks to this technique, the effect of bright and spacious interiors has been achieved.

The architects’ desire was to emphasise the industrial background of the complex. Brick walls and ceilings have been displayed wherever possible. The same goes with bare concrete that has been used in many places, for instance to build the reception counter with design trade mark. In addition, the wiring of the main hall’s ceiling has been left exposed.

The yellow colour constitutes the leitmotiv of the whole complex. It appears in the corporate identity and in the decoration.  The signage system has been designed with vertical back illuminated panels mounted on the wall and directing lines on the floor. Panels contain information regarding facilities available on each level and help guests to locate these facilities i.e room, restaurant, conference rooms.
