As a business traveler, I've been visiting Katowice a few times a year since 10 years now. Over this time I have tested out a few hotels in the city. For me Monopol is the only one to stay in. I love the modern design, combination of brick, metal and wood. The black and white photographies of old Katowice hanging... More

Stayed overnight where there were bad storms in Katowice. The TV wasn't working and neither was the a.c. With lots of lightening and floods these things can happen. As I have stayed here before and had a great time I hope they had a bad day and next time it will be normal service resumed.

This is a wonderful hotel, where you get a sense of the bygone era. The furnishings, the parquet flooring, the restaurant in the atrium - all very inviting. We stayed in connecting rooms, both of which were beautiful and functional. We had exterior rooms which had very large windows and amazing light. We parked right in front of the building... More

I'm visiting Katowice frequently for business and I'm coming with groups for 1 week stay. In my perspective, the hotel is the best hotel in Katowice in all aspects. The location of the hotel, close to central train station and a shopping mall, is excellent for going in / out for sightseeing / eating / meeting or just hang out.... More

Great hotel, very nice rooms, modern bathrooms, decent restaurant. Has indoor pool, sauna and gym. Set in a turn of the century house, modernization and renovation created a modern hotel in an antique setting. Marvel at the mosaic at the entrance (even if you think so, you won't trip) or the glass-roof covered restaurant with decent food. Pool and sauna... More

Great location, but poor service and uncomfortable beds. Much too chiq for its own good. Breakfast is a poor value and the restaurant food is no good. Excellent gym and swimming pool, though, but if you cannot sleep, what's the point. They would do well to get a good mattress and pillow set

Another business trip took me Katowice and the Monopol hotel. Still found it good. Stayed in a Junior Suite this time as well. Nice and clean room. Beds are very comfy. Love the jacuzzi style bath tub, nice to relax in after a long day at work. Breakfast felt a bit on the small side compared to my previous stay,... More

Stayed here for two nights on a business trip. In principle I like modern hotels more than hotels such as Monopol, but this is personal. Very friendly staff at reception, quick check in. 2 Minutes from the best restaurant in town, Tatiana. Bar area is small and nothing special. The is a fitness room but we did not check that... More
