An Architectural Landmark

Focus Premium Pod Orłem is a historic 4-star hotel located in the very center of Bydgoszcz, and has been operating continuously for over 120 years. The hotel is an architectural landmark of the city - a perfect combination of historic secessionist design and modern technological solutions.

The Origins

The hospitality traditions of Focus Hotel Premium pod Orłem date back to the early 19th century. At that time, a tavern was built along the route leading to Gdańsk. In its present shape, the hotel has existed since 1896. It was built by Emil Bernhard, to a design by Bydgoszcz architect Józef Święcicki. The first name of the hotel was " Zum Adler", and the interior of the restaurant was modeled on solutions used in Germany. In 1919, the hotel was bought for 1.25 M German marks jointly by landowner and businessman Stefan Majewicz, and Władysław and Józef Kosicki. The German eagle perched on top of the building was replaced by the Polish one.

Pre-war Glory

In 1920-1939, the hotel and restaurant were among the best in the city. In the Malinowa and Kolumnowa halls, national and local authorities organized their events, while military brass and charities had theirs. The prominent guests of that time include Marshal Piłsudski, President Wojciechowski, General Haller and many other distinguished officials. During the Second World War, the hotel was occupied by the Germans and its name was changed to "Danziger Hoff".

The Post-war Period

At the beginning of 1945, the hotel returned to the Majewicz family, but soon it was nationalized and in 1952 it was donated to the state-owned Orbis Tourist Enterprise, which managed it until 1993. The hotel continued hosting many celebrities (including musicians and composers Artur Rubinstein and Krzysztof Penderecki, as well as actors Daniel Olbrychski and Jeremi Przybora) and provided a tiny window to the outside world while Poland was practically isolated from the West.

Return to the Rightful Owners

In mid-December 1993, as a result of reprivatization, the hotel returned to the heirs of the rightful owners. To run it, a special-purpose company, “Majewicz Hotel Enterprise” was set up. In April 2017, the IMMOBILE SA Capital Group, a Bydgoszcz-based Polish capital group, acquired 100% of the company’s shares. IMMOBILE SA transferred the operation of the facility to its subsidiary - Focus Hotels SA, which successfully manages the hotel to this day.
