We stayed here for one night in a standard room on the first floor. Rooms are very spacious and comes with everything you need (appreciated the complimentary bottles of still & sparkling water). Also loved the heated floors in the bathroom. So good! Only complaint would be that the wifi signal was very poor in our room. We needed to... More

Stayed in the hotel on business because it is centrally located. The Hotel is quite splendid and the Architects have done a great job of designing the hotel around the old building without losing the endearing features. Rooms are spacious, beds are comfortable, showers were excellent. Only addition would be extra pillows in the single rooms.

Katowice isn't exactly a city that comes to mind as a tourist destination, but a business traveller will surely enjoy the quality and service of Hotel Monopol. Don't let its facade and location deter you, but book yourself into one of the great art-deco rooms and enjoy great Polish hospitality, served with priode

The building itself is beautiful, and the interior space where breakfast is served is wonderful. However, the breakfast is average, the service is slow (for N. American standards) and some of the interior finishing (the carpet) could be updated. This is a Grand Dame Hotel with a lot of history and a lot of renovations (I was in a renovated... More

Had a 2-night stay at Monopol. It's conveniently located near the Silesian Theatre. My room was spacious but the same space was used in total unuseful way: the carpet in the middle of the room was horrible (to my like), as far as the marble in the bathroom, which however was fully furnished. Breakfast was good, with quite a wide... More

Very good location, 5 min walk from the Central Railway and bus Station including bus from the airport. Spacious and clean rooms and bathroom, friendly staff. Bar and restaurant it’s another story, good food but staff are serious, never smile which creates rather sombre atmosphere.

This place boasts to be one the most luxurious hotels in Poland, with great history behind. This might be true, but I would really like to trade some of this great past off for a better service today. The staff is only OK (I expect much more from a 5* hotel), and in the restaurant it gets a little worse.... More

The showers at the swimming pool and gym require urgent renovation! The hotel makes a positive impression and is considered as the best in Katowice. Unfortunately, I feel very strongly that the hotel based on reviews from the past, and SPA area, swimming pool and fitness/gym need renovation.
