I just noticed, that lately I have spent unexpectedly too much time in 3 star hotels. It's not my free will, so I might be a bit more bitter than I supposed to be. Hotel Portos is average 3 star hotel outside of Warsawa city center, so it takes time and money to get to the city. During the check-in I I was asked about room preference -smoking or non-smoking. Can't remember then I was asked about it last time, so it made me bit nervous. Turned out that even though I chose non-smoking room, somebody was constantly smoking in my bathroom (or so I felt, as smell of smoke was strong, carried thru ventilation system).
Room was large, bed comfortable, overall style a bit worn out and traditional, but clean. Large windows were facing next building, so no view, but were able to keep window open during night. Room was well heated. Large parking space next to hotel, but was full of cars, difficult to find free space. Even taxis have challenges to locate the hotel and find the right place for pick-up or drop-off.
Hotel restaurant was decent, prices very affordable, so no need to go out for dinner. Breakfast had several options, plenty of food and decent coffee. Some lady even tried to make fried eggs to order, but failed, as it took enormous time.
Only challenge in that hotel was the large variety of guests - from 'wall to wall'. Some of my colleagues weren't able to sleep because of party in next room. Some guests looked like criminals, some like professors from university. Lot of youngsters etc. So I wouldn't prefer to stay there alone.
