History of the Carlton
The Hotel Carlton has a rich history behind it, just like the surroundings in which it is located.
For the residents of the city itself this is not merely a luxury hotel. It is a legend. It was here that Maria Theresa had a room arranged, or where Jules Verne scribbled notes on a new novel in the evenings. The Hotel Carlton tells its own tale, which doesn’t permit it to be buried in the dust of the past centuries and still today gives it a unique fairy tale atmosphere.
13th century - 1857
The history of the Carlton complex reaches back as far as the 13th century. In this period the tavern "U Labute" (At the Swan) stood on its site and later, from 1760, the travellers’ inn "U troch zelených stromov" (At the Three Green Trees) stood along its right-hand side. This offered guests not only accommodation but also stabling for their horses. It took its name from the broad green trees growing in its courtyard, and in this period it ranked among the most celebrated inns in the whole country. In 1838 Johann Löwy, the director of the first Hungarian Bratislava-Trnava railway line, bought the building and had it converted on the design of builder Ignác Feigler, Jr. Thus, from the original single-storey building the modern three-storey “U zeleného stromu” (At the Green Tree) hotel originated in 1844 to 1846, whose guests praised not only the comfortable rooms but also its advantageous location on the banks of the Danube.
1857 – 1912 „At the Green Tree“
In 1857 well-known wine trader Jakub Palugyay, who before then owned the hotel coffeehouse, took over the hotel. The Palugyay family operated the hotel under the name “U zeleného stromu” (At the Green Tree) until the owner’s death in 1912.
1860 – 1908 hotel „National“
Hotelu “U zeleného stromu“ od roku 1860 konkuroval vedľajší hotel "National", ktorý sa nachádzal na Mostovej ulici a svojim hosťom ponúkal 27 izieb. National založila rodina Spenederovcov v roku 1860 a neskôr prestavala podľa projektu architekta Ignáca Feiglera. Hotel sa zmenil na pompéznu rožnú budovu s fasádou do Mostovej ulice a do Hviezdoslavovho námestia. Patrila k nemu aj známa hotelová kaviareň "Savoy", ktorá sa nachádzala na prízemí.
In 1908 Henrich Prüger, former manager of the Savoy hotel in London, purchased the National hotel. In the years that followed he purchased the adjacent Gervay house and after the death of Karol Palugyay also the hotel “U zeleného stromu”. He then had all three buildings converted, whereby the imposing Savoy-Carlton hotel complex, opened in June 1913, originated. It got the name Carlton in honour of the former owners Karl Palugyay (Carl) and his wife Antónia (nicknamed Ton-ka). After initial experimental attempts, the first Elektro Bioskop cinema operated from 1905 in the hotel salon. For thirty hellers you could see up to a dozen short films in it. No wonder, then, that it became so popular. In 1913 the cinema was moved to a new building on Hviezdoslavovo námestie, where it still exists today under the name Mladosť as the oldest cinema in Slovakia.
