Unfortunately Trip adviser has not got a dot between average and very good as that is where I would have placed this hotel. I do like it. It is old style, high ceilinged rooms etc, very well mannered and helpful staff. Breakfasts were the normal buffet style of cold meats, cheeses, cereals etc. Also luke warm scrambled eggs and equally... More

My wife and I had a great experience staying at this hotel from 2-9 May 15. Located just a short walk from the river and main square; there is also a mall next door for parking. Loved the historic building. Rooms were up-to-date inside and always well-serviced. All staff were pleasant and helpful. Great breakfast with plenty of options. We... More

Great experience, good service from check in to check out Close to everything and it is a must stay if you ever go to this beautiful city. The moment you get into this hotel you feel transported to the 1800's it is in a very good shape and best of all CLEAN and quiet. Breakfast buffet has a good variety.

I stayed in this century old hotel for one night on a business trip to Bydgoszcz. The staff at reception was helpful. The room was very good facing the street. I love history and old heritage architecture so it was perfect for me.. The corridors and lights were dark but otherwise nice staying experience. It is situated in city center... More

Great atmosphere, amalgamation of classical style with modern devices; yet still classy. You'll find yourself in style of early 20-th century, yet with wifi and new bathrooms. The ammount of Art Deco at corrindors and restaurants resembles opera house, say La Scala. It's a very unique place.

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

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
