The quality of the hotel is really nice. Beautiful rooms, everything is clean. The bathroom is quite big. Unfortunately in my bedroom the air condition doesnt work properly, thats why i had to ask a heater. Even if i turn off the air condition, the background noise is very loud in this room (509), i dont know why. But i...

Arriving at the hotel the rooms were ready so we had a quick get in. The rooms are very spacious and the bathrooms are gorgeous. Natural stone. I did not want to leave. The only thing missing was a separate showerhead. Located near the shopping centre a great location.

The hotel is beautiful with large rooms and a great breackfast. The personnel is very nice and in a great position to visit Katowice. The room is very confortable and very traditional. I really loved it.

Monopol is one of the oldest hotels in KATOWICE. An old mosaic at the entrance is the first testimony of a great past. The room is large with elegant, essential furniture. Comfortable bed and relaxing sleep. Excellent WIFi ( free).Highly recommended!

The room was spacious; the wifi was reliable and the front desk staff friendly and helpful. Although a plentiful breakfast, the eggs and bacon were rather undercooked two mornings out of three. The bed in the room was large, but the bedding was too small, resulting in restless nights.

I had not high expectation of finding botique hotel in outside of major cities in Poland, but I was wrong. I stayed Hotel Monopol for weekend and was suprised by quality of room, very chic design furniture, and moreover very freindly staff. Break fast is great with lots of choice, and what more important for me, this is one of...

"Katowice's only 5 star hotel" is the claim... I think in any other city this hotel would warrant 3 stars... at best! It's clear that some serious money has been spent on the hotel... but sadly they have totally missed the target in many important (and basic) areas. First The Positives... The architecture in the lobby and restaurant area is...

I just spent the night in a nice room on the fifth floor, unfortunately due to extremely loud central air conditioning on the roof I have not slept a single minute. The air conditioning was turning on and off making the sound as if the plane was starting and landing. Additionally the room was extremely cold. I definitely not recommend...

Really beautiful old hotel that was completely refurbished. Had issue with air conditioning (or maybe the rooms in front are always hot?) but they moved me to another room which was much cooler. Would definitely stay here again.

This is a very nice hotel where I got a large room with a shower-room, no bath tub. The breakfast is very very nice with a large variety on the buffé but where you also can order cooked things such as fried or scrambled eggs. Only annoying thing was the cleaning of the street outside my room, the vacuum cleaning...
