Unusual to find a hotel aimed at overseas tourists and business travellers with such a warm and efficient - but still low-key - reception. None of the OTT nonsense (by British standards) you receive from US brands, where flunkeys fall over each other to greet your arrival. Good-sized rooms, decorated in traditional Polish style, with bath and shower, a well-stocked mini-bar, plasma TV, coffee/tea options, plus free and efficient wi-fi, so all the boxes ticked for facilities. The downstairs bar looked very nice, and the restaurant offer was good for breakfast, although a shade limited and quite expensive for evening meals.
The location is ideal, and the combination of a good bed, soft linen and zero traffic noise should guarantee a good sleep for anyone.
The only downside for me was the bizarre 'whooo' noise which the lift emitted, each time it was used, especially as my room was just a couple of strides away.
The only negative I can imagine for guests who demand perfection is that the Branicki is starting to show its age. Flawlessly clean, but the wood, wallpaper and carpets will need a serious refurb in the next year or so, as will some of the fittings in the public rooms. It didn't bother me, but some would consider the environment a little 'tired'.
