Housed in a 19th-century mansion, The Bold Type is a 5-star boutique hotel in the area of Patras and one of the leading examples of cultural heritage that has been transformed to give the city a new trend in the field of hospitality.
“The Bold Type philosophy is based on personalized hospitality and our goal is to connect with each visitor and offer him the authentic hospitality that is culturally rooted within us. Our goal is to transmit the local culture to the visitor by exploring the vibrant neighborhoods and the urban streets of the city and connecting with the local community.
The hotel’s design organically highlights the colors of the city through an inspired three-tone approach. The first floor presents a brick-red color as an homage to the city’s ancient theater. The second floor, defined by cobalt, is a tribute to the color of the original house. And on the third, green augments the plants and trees that embrace the structure. Fine walnut, restored marble, wood floors, and authentic wooden shutters create the perfect frame for Calligaris rugs, handmade furniture, and Cocomat mattresses.
The Bold Type was brilliantly conceived and restored by architect Empi Spathi with the structure’s heritage firmly in mind. Blending seamlessly with the city’s traditional look, the existing shell that houses the hotel was treated as a work of art by the architect, retaining its original color and timeless feel. Soaring ceilings throughout the public spaces encourage gathering and highlight a sophisticated hospitality air, with everything flowing effortlessly to a magnificent, well-preserved Mediterranean garden.
The Bold Type restaurant is located in a dream space at the back of the hotel, a secret courtyard embraced by blue sky, and a wild plantation. The hotel has quickly made a bold mark on the local gastronomy scene with an inspired fusion of Greek and Mediterranean cuisine. Dining al fresco in a verdant garden setting allows guests to connect sensually to the city yet with a sublime sense of removal. Just a stone’s throw from the main city sights, including the Medieval Castle, right above the Roman Odeon, The Bold Type serves as the perfect gateway to this ancient city.”
