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

The service was slow (27 minute wait for scrambled eggs during breakfast and we were the only table there!), poor quality of bedding-developed an allergy as it was also not being cleaned properly. Bathroom door didn't close and when it did, I got locked in for 20 minutes, also shower leaked. Phone in room didn't work due to constant flat... 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

A wonderful building, beautifully remodeled, and with real care taken over the decor and the rooms. I stayed here for a week for work and it was a very inviting place to return to each night, with a good night's sleep made easy. Internet access was fine - not lightning fast but good enough, and the overseas TV channels are... More

Second time to stay here. In Katowice twice per year for work. Will continue staying at Monopol. The heated floors in the washrooms and overall feel of the hotel sell me every time. I also feel as though the value is on par for the service you receive.

Had a suite and a room. Stayed for 3 nights with the kids. Staff service is exceptional. Rooms were amazing. Attention to details was a wonderful touch.

The hotel is located in a historic building. It was nice to discover that in its previous life, it was always a hotel, where Jan Kiepura (a famous Polish singer of 30s) had his wedding party there. Rooms are decorated in 30s style with super-moder designed bathrooms (real stone). Free wifi, good breakfast (room service free of charge!!!). The neighbourhood... More

If you end up in Katowice (ok, that is a big 'IF'), then Monopol is by far the best hotel to stay at: a 100-120 years old building, very nicely refurbished in a post industrial style (bricks, glass and steel) while preserving some elements of the original proprety, mosaics etc. Large, well fitted rooms with huge bathrooms and a -too...
