JAMES E. MACE SUITE (PREMIER SUITE) in BANKHOTEL is a spacious studio filled with light that breaks through huge windows with the scenic park view. The JAMES E. MACE SUITE (PREMIER SUITE) has a special charm due to a combination of the restored original elements of the 1920 Austro-Hungarian Bank building, such as bas-relief on the ceiling and modern design.
The studio consists of two functional zones: a cozy bedroom with Italian furniture by B & B Italia, Giorgetti, and Poliform brands, certificated orthopedic mattresses with the highest-quality ecological filling by the Italian company Altrenotti, a pillow menu for choosing the most comfortable sleeping option and a living room with a set of soft furniture for meeting guests or running business negotiations with partners.

Thanks to his research the world learned about the Holodomor in Ukraine. He argued that this tragedy of the Ukrainian people was another crime of the Soviet government and deserves to be defined as “genocide”.
