I lived in Bydgoszcz many years ago, prior to the collapse of communism. In those days, Pod Orlem was an Orbis Hotel. Orbis represented the best of a very bad range of experiences - poor service being the most irritating. Us ex-pats would visit the Pod Orlem for a decent dinner, when food was scarce and good food almost impossible... More

Please imagine how disappointed I am that we did not meet your expectations. You are right that some of our staff are quite senior, as we employ a variety of staff of different... More

Lovely old hotel beautifully restored to 1920s glory. Great central location in town centre. We booked the hotel without breakfast but as we had to catch a plane in he morning we decided to get one any way. What a mistake. The supposedly hot food was just warm, bread rolls were not fresh - it looked nice enough all laid... More

Dear Izabela, Thank you for your review of our hotel. We are happy that you liked our hotel and its location. I am very sorry about your breakfast. We make sure that every ingredient (bread included) is fresh, and the dishes have the correct temperature. Unfortunately, we have made a mistake and in effect your breakfast wasn't as tasty as...

Visited this hotel several times, still like it. The grandeur of the old political party house has been kept, and it has a certain atmosphere. Rooms are spacy enough, breakfast is good with decent products. Close to the main square, and next to a covered car park. Quiet rooms, certainly if you can book a room away from the street... More

This hotel has all the architectural style and internal features, including stained glass windows, of the 1920's. A 1920's hotel with modern facilities, good sized bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. A well stocked bar, very friendly staff and a good selection of food at breakfast leads me to wonder what more I could wish for. Recommended to those, like me,... More

Beautiful Hotel in the heart of town. Only minutes to walk to many fine restaurants, pubs, shopping, canals and Opera House. Rooms are very comfortable and great service. Pretty much everyone speaks English. Highly recommend.

Stayed with colleagues for three nights. Charming old hotel. Amazing original decor, looked after well considering the age of the hotel. Nice touches, like a helpful concierge at the front door. We all agreed the rooms and breakfast were of a high standard. Friendly front desk staff. Only negative, very slow broadband.For the price, good value.
