Danubius Thermal Hotel Margitsziget - Conference Rooms Refurbishment

The 8 storey hotel - built in 1979 on Margaret Island - has been renovated in several stages. Renovation of the rooms and corridors has been followed since 2015 by the renovation of the lobby, event and conference rooms, and the Spa&Healthcare foyer. Surrounded by the greenery of Margaret Island, this spa and wellness hotel enjoys a special location in the heart of the city, yet in a peaceful natural setting. The modernist building with its large glass surfaces and terraces allows the view of nature into the interiors. The facade reflects the environment using natural and noble materials.

During the renovation - keeping the original golden anodized color of the profiles – the windows were replaced with thermal insulated tall windows, which greatly improve the energy efficiency of the building and increase the transparency of the building, emphasizing its relationship with the environment. 

The wood paneling in the event rooms and the stone cladding used on the floors and pillars, emphasize this natural use of materials and the generous, open space design that allows nature in. We designed the event spaces of the building in three different characters. There are 4 smaller section rooms connected to the lobby. There are also two other spacious conference rooms which can be served from the kitchen of the hotel and which all can be divided into smaller rooms with mobile walls, and their size can be varied in several steps. They are not only visually related to the natural environment, but they can also be connected to the event hall and terrace. There are built-in benches in the hallway of the event rooms, uniformly designed with wall covering, built-in plinth lighting, and Wi-Fi sockets.
