Andel’s Hotel Łódź

I wish I could have spent another week in Łódź, where Fashion Week Poland took place last week. The hotel that kindly hosted Kit, Shini and I during our time in the city was a dream. With incredibly friendly staff and top notch standards, it felt like a mecca for Poland's creative types with most rooms seemingly filled with designers, press, or general fashion folk. While I've mentioned it before, Andel's Hotel is an absolute force. A converted textile mill that was first established in 1878, it now boasts four stars and hosts guests like Shakira when they find themselves in the area. The huge complex was transformed in just two short years and the building pays homage to the people that worked to convert it with spray painted portraits of staff hidden around the complex. To be honest, it feels one-part hotel one-part art museum... walls are deconstructed and art work lines the corridors. The building itself was as inspiring as the fashion on show. I'm hoping I'll get the chance to go back and visit again. Not least because I never had the chance to dip my toes in the crazy beautiful roof top pool...
