Modern Łódź Hotel, Once An Abandoned Old Factory

There are old factories all over the world and, after sitting all alone and abandoned for a while, the spaces inside get rented, turned into offices or, in some cases, into something more imposing like a hotel. It’s the case of this building from the city of Łódź in Poland.

This used to be a textile factory originally built in 1892. It went through an extraordinary metamorphosis and it got transformed into a luxury hotel. Now known as Andel’s Hotel, the imposing brick building can be found in the center of Manufaktura, an area which once used to be a conglomerate owned by Poznański, the one who built the original factory.
