The hotel is in a great location; really easy to get to from the airport by metro. S2 to Centralna or Srodmiescie (Zone 1 - 4.40PLN or about 90p)
The staff were helpful enough, and let us check in an hour, early free of charge. They were more helpful, if you tried to speak Polish, even smiling at check in (my vocab stretches to about 4 words, which I learned whilst I was away)
There was a charity event on, on the Sunday night, and the receptionist tried his best to explain it was an annual charity event, to raise money for sick children. The city was full of people collecting all weekend.
We only saw any homeless beggars around the metro station.
We didn't try the bar or restaurant. By UK prices, it seemed reasonable, but very expensive by Polish standards. (19PLN for 0.5l, where in the Old Town you could get 1.0l for 9PLN) We ate out in Old Town each night, and bought beer and vodka from the off licence between there and the hotel for when we got back.
A couple of strange points to mention.
When we asked for a map, we were given one with the map key in Japanese - not sure why.
We don't like the staff coming in our room, so put the do not disturb on the door for the whole stay. On the last night at 10pm, we received a courtesy call that startled us, asking was everything ok. Nice of them to be concerned, but why at that time. I was tired at that point, but it woke me up, so we went out for a late night walk in the snow.
Like someone else said, the duvet's aren't really big enough for the king size beds.
We think the bathroom might have underfloor heating, because it was always lovely and warmed.
It cost us £160 for three nights room only. The room was in a corner that half faced into the courtyard. You could just about see the clock on top of the Palace of Culture.
Nice enough, but would expect more to rate it excellent
