Ester Bruzkus and Patrick Batek have carried their new concept for the international hotel chain AZIMUT through to the eastern terminus of the Trans-Siberian Railway, transforming the AZIMUT Vladivostok into a modern, charming 4-star hotel with a warm yet simple atmosphere. This twelve storey typical Soviet building from the 1950s lies directly on the seafront and has been fully refurbished. Here guests are also welcomed into the new modern AZIMUT style that is characterized by elements such as the distinctive golden reception block, dark floors, light oak wall panelling and lit vintage signage showing the way to the reception, restaurant or bar. In the "Living Lobby", created with furniture and lighting designed by Bruzkus Batek, guests will find inviting work and relaxation zones. The reception, restaurant and conference rooms enclose a green courtyard on the ground floor. The furnishings in the 378 rooms follow the “smart” concept using limited space in a highly functional way while simultaneously offering the maximum of comfort. The newly created conference areas also adopt the warm tones of the public spaces. One of the most beautiful accessories of the AZIMUT Vladivostok, however, has been long created by nature: the view of the Pacific Ocean.
