We stayed in the hotel to attend a wedding reception. It is a big hotel and looks like well set up for business and functions, as well as tourists. Our room was spacious with plenty of hanging space but the decor was a bit out of date. The bathroom looked like it had been newly refurbished, as it was bright... More

This was really a very good, clean and well run hotel. Situated twenty minutes bus ride from the centre of town; the bus stop was five minutes walk away. The room we were in was "compact" with two narrow single beds pushed together and a pullout sofa bed for the two kids. Bathroom was of a high standard, much better... More

Simple big hotel with comfortable rooms. Very helpfull staff, little knowledge of the City (i asked parking, and nearby late night dining options but they could not good answer). Price is good but the biggest problem is that the extra charge for parking (and not cheap). Room and bathroom are so clear and modern. An extensive breakfast and quiet rooms.... More

Good hotel outside town but easily accessible. Had a interconnecting room which was great for the kids. Breakfast was continental and good choice. Taxi to town was between 20 and 25 PLN and reception arranged really quickly. Bus was every 15 mins and only 100m from hotel, took 20 mins to get to centre. Tickets were easy as machines are... More

On arrival we were told that they had no details of a reservation for us, even though we produced proof of booking at the friends and family rate. Fortunately there were rooms available and they honoured the original price we had been quoted. The room was pleasant and the bed comfortable, the breakfast was good by hotel standards. The staff...

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was wonderful. Yes, they are doing remodeling; but, they should still get a good review. Marek in reception is beyond wonderful and extremely helpful!
