We stayed at the Maksymilian for 3 nights. Got there very early so room was not ready, however, Receptionist allowed us to leave our bags behind the desk whilst we spent 6hrs exploring the City (could have gone back a lot earlier but got caught up with Schindlers Factory!) Room was on 2nd floor and although there was a large school group present which we thought would be noisy, we heard absolutely nothing! One double bed and two large singles pushed together gave us a choice of beds. Would have thought the double bed would have been the main bed but it wasn't and was pushed against the wall but this was not a problem. Bathroom was very clean and tidy, only problem was I got locked in the bathroom when the door lock came off in my hand. Luckily my husband was able to open it from the other side, we reported this when we left. Having free Wifi was very handy although the authentification failed to work on the last night so were unable to check home. The receptionist managed to put this right the morning we left. These two things are the only reason this hotel did not get 5 stars. Breakfast was sufficient and was in the cellar which was lovely with pictures of the renovation of the building on the walls. We didn't try the bar or restaurant. Location was brilliant, just 5 mins walk to the City centre along the main road. Would definitely stay again and would highly recommend it to others, in fact recommended it to a couple organising a reunion trip for 8 next year.
