We spent 4 nights in this hotel with a puppy. The staff were brilliant, kind, caring and always ready to assist with a smile. They made us feel welcome throughout the stay. The hotel is spotlessly clean and it has the best position next to the castle opposite the river. Whilst walking around saw many other hotels, and each time... More

Great location, good wi-fi, clean rooms, nice breakfast, good restaurant on the roof. Near there's an uderground parking, but it's a little bit expensive (91 zloty per day). The only thing we didn't like was that we couldn't check-in earlier than 14.00 and then one of tworooms wasn't ready in time.

Perfect location, very good services and the roof restaurant is superb. We stayed here fot a weekend and hotel was perfect match for us. Historic city center is not far away - 5-10minutes by walk and the river bank outside hotel is really nice.
