Budapest is a historic city with a unique culture, and some of the world’s most refined and exquisite architecture; it overflows with powerful visual statements, inspiring awe wherever one looks.


Recently Neoltih, Calacatta Polished and Iron Frost , were specified in the newly refurbished Marriott Hotel, Budapest. In such an eclectic destination, globally-renowned hotel group Marriott knew it would have to pull out all the stops to create a space which would wow guests and visitors as soon as they entered.




Working with Twenty2 degrees , the operator was keen to incorporate materials into the design which could perform as well as they looked. Further, the group has a robust sustainability strategy, so anything specified has to have low carbon credentials, embodying its aim to achieve Net Zero 2050.


Neolith, which is manufactured in a carbon neutral environment, quickly became the surfacing material of choice early on in the design process.




Marriott Budapest’s Morning Room certainly lifts the spirit and senses. Central to this space is an expansive breakfast bar topped with cool, crisp and gleaming Neolith Calacatta Polished, which is also used to partially clad the base. In a room dedicated to dining, cleanliness and hygiene are a crucial factor.


Neolith’s inherent, waterproof properties, scratch resistance and ability to be fitted with seamless joints meant it was a natural choice in a setting where food and drink were to be prepared, displayed and consumed on a daily basis.

Let’s do



Creating the perfect environment for doing business is a delicate balancing act. The overall interior design should not be too busy and make plenty of provision for natural daylight to maintain attention and motivation. In keeping with the rest of the hotel, Marriott decided less is definitely more for its main meeting room.


Dark wood panelling and muted grey walls are punctuated by two statement shelving units in Calacatta Polished, helping to create a look which means business.

Raising the Bar

At night, the hotel comes to life as a centrally located social hub where the ‘Queen of the Danube’s’ great and good gather to enjoy the establishment’s cool, contemporary and sophisticated atmosphere.


Central to this communal area is an elegant, white tiled bar, which stands out against a varnished parquet floor. However, the most striking feature is a countertop specified in one of Neolith’s most interesting surfaces, Iron Frost, which combines shiny, metallic details on a sheer white background.


It’s definitely the place to be seen for pre-dinner drinks or a couple of night caps in this magical and enchanting city.
