Our story

Born in 1910, reborn in 2023!

A grand and grand project, the Podgoreanu Mansion has been reborn as Mercure Conacul Cozieni, as part of the prestigious ACCOR hotel chain. This premium destination caters to all those seeking a peaceful retreat in the midst of nature, offering an inexhaustible source of inspiration, relaxation and fairytale comfort.

Origins - reinforcing belonging

Like a slice of early 20th-century history enhanced by contemporary artists, the mansion combines the aristocratic refinement of neo-Romanesque style with urban architecture, giving you a unique sense of encounter with history every time you step onto the brick porch, through the generous arches that flood the reception with natural light. Your footsteps will pass over the mosaic with plant motifs, the same one where, more than a century ago, the leading families of the interwar aristocracy passed on their way to cool country evenings.


Tree of life

The tree of life, the symbol of abundance and hope in Romanian culture, is brought back to the present, engraved on the wood of the furniture in the rooms and found in the decoration pieces in the hotel. As a reminder of what Codrii Vlăsiei used to be, we also find it represented in the hotel’s reception as a captivating art installation.

The construction of the manor dates back over 110 years, the original architectural style can be found in the new buildings that harmoniously complement the original piece, honouring the grandeur of times past. Moreover, in an effort to restore history, but also to be sustainable, all the balconies of the rooms contain original bricks saved from the old mansion.

History of Podgoreanu Mansion

The Podgoreanu Mansion in Cozieni, Ilfov, was built at the beginning of the 20th century, in 1910, by the nobleman Mihail Podgoreanu, a rich owner of land and vineyards, and was also known as “Cozieni Castle”.

The mansion consisted of a two-storey main building, surrounded by a park and vineyards, with an area of about 10 hectares. In the past, the mansion was used as a summer residence by the Podgoreanu family.

Located just 18 km east of the capital, near the Pasărea Monastery, surrounded by lakes and forests that were once part of Codrii Vlăsiei, the mansion has been restored and transformed into a premium hotel, and is now a perfect place for leisure and events.
