Even though our room was comfortable, I don't think this hotel rates as a true 5 star hotel. More of a 3.5 - 4 star in my mind, so I think it's overpriced, hence me only giving it a rating of 3.
It's location is over 5km from the old city, and is on a main road, and the frontage is not appealing. Inside the hotel it is pleasant, and garden is very nice though.
The room was clean and a reasonable size, but not luxurious in any way. A fair bit of noise could be heard from the hallway, which I don't expect in a 5 star hotel.
If your focus is to visit the old city, then stay in the old city, as the taxi fares, and bus rides do add up each day in both time and money. We wound up taking the 159 or 208 buses to/from the old city, which takes about 15 minutes, followed by a 15 minute walk from the bus stop to the hotel along a major arterial road. So you'd lose well over an hour each day by public transport (including waiting for the bus), and at least 40 minutes and 60 zloty (30 each way) a day using taxi's.
The buffet breakfast was very good, and the beds pretty comfortable. The people at the hotel were very nice. The free internet worked well.
There was no pool or gym, so I do wonder how it's rated a 5 star.
