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! This young man made our visit. He made our reservations for visiting Auschwitz, helped us find a laundromat, and made sure we had everything we needed for a... More

This hotel has a good location around the city. Approximately located midway from airport and city center. If you have a rental car you can park easily front of the house for a reasonable price. The breakfast selection is nothing special but OK and the free wi-fi is not working properly. It was a bit shocking that you can not... More

My office is half a mile along Opolska Street which is why I stay here sometimes and not in the main Holiday Inn in the city centre. For a Holiday Inn Express it is better quality than you would expect in the UK, but rooms are a little dated now. Even so it is very good value for money (less... More

The hotels in Poland have really not met my standards and this one is no exception. We were on the first level and the second we got off the elevator we noticed that the floor was damp and soggy as if there was a flood. It smelled mad. The rooms were very tiny and the wifi was pretty weak Breakfast... More

It's clean, has large parking, and pretty good breakfast included in price. Maybe with exception for that strange liquid which pretended to be an orange juice. Bed in double room was very small, too small for a couple. Very small and very old TV. It took me 15 minutes by taxi to get to the Old Town (non rush hours),... More
