The name of the hotel is instead inspired by the classic student play (Lundaspexet) Djingis Khan, performed at the Lund Carnival 1954.
The play is about Djingis Khan and his sons’ futile attempts to conquer Samarkand ("the Eslöv of Asia") and became immensely popular with its breathtaking puns and catchy music. It has ever since then been a standard on the repertoire. Djingis Khan was translated to English for a visit of the EU Parliament in 1986, and has toured the US in this version. At the 50th anniversary year 2004 the original members performed a special version for the kids at preschool Djingis Khan in Lund.
From the start the building was a nursery home. In the 1980's the building was converted into a hotel and has been ever since. Today the hotel is owned by the Hallencreutz family.
