Beauty of decay 3/4 Petőfi Hotel


Since 2006, this blog has been documenting the  restoration works of this former hotel. We even took a "before" photo in anticipation of the planned restoration.

At that time, the building was 107 years old. Seven years on, after some initial works of stripping, the project came to a halt several years ago. There were problems with the project manager, so we heard.

Because of the long delays, the building now looks worse than before! However, if you look closer, we believe you will find beauty in the decay ;)  We're posting a series of 4 photos to show you some remaining details.

#News April 22, 2013 - the works is back on under a new management. source
