The hotel is very well located, both near the airport bus station and the center of the city, the rooms are huuuuuge, and so is the bathroom, offering BOTH A SHOWER AND A BATHTUB. Unfortunately, we did not have breakfast, so I cannot have an opinion on that. The staff is extremely friendly, the guy is very sociable (when we... More

Good Location (5 Minutes walking distance to historic town), Big Rooms, very good bed. and great breakfast, you can order eggs in any style in Addition to the Buffet. The staff is very friendly and supportive. The style of the building is a Palace, very nice. WE will Return for sure in some month to enjoy the famous Christmas market.

As per other reviews - this is very nice. My issues, however, being the mattress protector was quite warm, the shower head needed replacing and the towels were showing their age - which was particularly noticeable after the new thick towels from my stay in the nearby Novotel a week earlier. Notwithstanding, I'd be happy to return. The breakfast is... More

My wife and I stayed here for a long weekend in July having booked our flights, hotel and trips independently. The Ostoya Palace is a lovely, quirky little hotel just on the edge of the Old Town, so a very good base, although now we have been we would rather have stayed in the Jewish Quarter where the best bars...

Small and cosy hotel near the old city center. The building is old and beautiful, built in 1895 and the rooms are located in two floors. The stuff here are very friendly and helpful, which is certainly not something taken for granted in Poland. Rooms are spacious and clean. The breakfast costs 30 zl extra, but the table is set...

The rooms were spacious and kept exceptionally clean by the very efficient cleaning staff. The bed in our room (room 18) was a little too firm for our liking; the bed in our son's... More

I stayed with my parents here for a long weekend June. We were all very pleased with it. The room we stayed in was very spacious. The hotel is very near the old town about 10mins walk and about 15mins in car from airport. Hotel reception was very helpful with any queries we had. Breakfast was very good with the... More

Approximately 10 minute walk from the main square in the old town and a bit further on foot to the castle and Jewish quarter, this hotel is in a good spot. Very clean spacious room and we only paid 129 pounds for 3 nights, breakfast not included in the price. We bought breakfast one morning for 30 zloty each, it... More
