Well, it's a chain hotel with a story to tell. Located by the sea, it's been undergoing makeover for the last several years. Well, except the stuff. They still have mentality as if you were watching a Polish movie from the 70's or 80's. The customer is definitely not king. The front desk tries stuff gives away wrong rooms and tries to be funnier than Eddie Murphy. Well, wrong combination when some traveled hours on Polish roads.
The hotel is located 20 minutes away on foot from the main spot in Sopot. You can always take a taxi and be there in 5.
Ok, now the main con, no AC in the rooms... or just maybe not in mine. There is a fridge, a kettle and a TV set. No fancy. It is clean as in a chain hotel should be.
If you go there in the summer, it is mostly occupied by families on holiday. Keep it in mine when you want to eat breakfast. You will probably find a table but the atmosphere reminds a school yard during the lunch break. Breakfast is good but not exceptional. I used the restaurant the previous time I stayed there three years ago and since then I prefer to go somewhere outside. Maybe food quality is the same but it is definitely cheaper.
If you are full after eating in one of the many fast food places, you can hit the gym or the swimming pool. The gym is ok but the swimming pool is rather small and outdated. It is strange because when I was there several years ago it was being renewed.
Came by car? There is a tiny parking lot in front of the hotel and one bigger across the street. They say there is a paid storage room for bikes. Well, would it be hard to make it inside the hotel? If you pay for both the car and bikes, you may as well spend small fortune.
I can recommend this hotel if there is at most 20C outside and you were born at most in the 80s in one of the communist countries. You may feel nostalgic or at least not bothered by some things listed above.
