The very first MGallery Hotel opens Spring 2022 in Bulgaria
This spring, The Emporium Plovdiv – MGallery will welcome its first guests as part of the iconic Accor hotel collection in Bulgaria. A historic building reborn with artistic design, smart technologies and distinctive stories, the hotel invites guests from all over the world to discover Plovdiv – Europe’s cultural capital of 2019.
The five-star hotel features 61 contemporary rooms including 12 remarkable suites, offering an exceptional variety of facilities and amenities to create a truly luxurious experience. Centrally located, The Emporium Plovdiv – MGallery hotel is within walking distance from Plovdiv’s main archaeological treasures: The Roman Forum, Roman Stadium and the UNESCO World Heritage sites – Bishop’s Basilica of Philippopolis and The Old Town. The best shopping and entertainment in the heart of Plovdiv are just moments away.
The interior design was commissioned to Sundukovy Sisters S+S, one of the fastest growing and creative architectural studios in the hospitality industry and winners of Designers of the year 2018 title awarded by The Gold Key Awards, New York. The main goal was to preserve the building of the former department store – Evmolpia, a well-known landmark in Plovdiv city, by reviving the original features of the building and incorporating them into the hotel design, celebrating local heritage. Further reflecting Bulgarian history, the iconic design of The Emporium Plovdiv – MGallery features shimmering gold panels throughout. Looking into the future, for the first time in the Balkans, the chain is introducing innovative technologies to enhance the hotel experience for its guests with its Smart Rooms concept. The Emporium’s smart rooms have a number of luxurious features that allow guests to manage individual scenarios according to their mood: adjust the light in their room, set the ambience, open and close the curtains and control the audio-visual functions.
International travellers and local guests are invited to enjoy the only Moët & Chandon Champagne Bar & Cocktail in the country. There will also be a gourmet restaurant, Torro Premio where talented chefs blend the best local products and craft cooking to deliver unparalleled interpretation of modern Bulgarian cuisine. Torro Grande, the trendiest restaurant and sushi bar in the city, will delight the senses of those who seek a vibrant setting for socializing.
To ensure utmost indulgence, the brand-new MGallery hotel will offer intimate relaxation and fitness zones, helping guests keep the body and soul in balance. To captivate stories and make memorable moments last, The Emporium Plovdiv has trusted the exclusive French Shams Conseils Paris company to develop its tailor-made signature scent inspired by the destination. Furthermore, the hotel will be the first property in the chain offering the luxury cosmetic amenities of the French line Fragonard, a brand founded in 1926.
MGallery’s first hotel in Bulgaria with its individual boutique personality invites its guests to a world of fascinating stories, historic heritage and blissful rest. It will be the perfect place in Plovdiv for travellers full of passion, looking for extraordinary experiences and cultural immersion.
