When arriving, we thought "Oh my God! What have we booked??" The internet picture looks much nicer than the reality. The parking lot is full of holes and stones and urgently needs revamping, chickens are running around, the building itself looks like a dull rectangular surface and the restaurant is hidden by overgrown vegetation. But we had already paid, so we went it. First glance inside is, again, not promising as you are greeted by an empty hall until you see a small reception on your left. Then your miserable feeling starts to change to a pleasant one. The staff is efficient and friendly and you are quickly on your way to your room. Everything looks new on the way but the walls are bare of any decoration. Again, ignore this and keep walking to your room. Only when we arrived to our room, were we comforted in our choice of hotel. The rooms are traditional, but rather large and pleasantly decorated. There is a desk to work on, a cupboard to hang your clothes, and a space for your luggage so that you don't have to open it on the floor. The bathroom is modern, very clean, roomy with a big shower. The contrast between the dull, unkept exterior and the comfort and modernism of the room is striking.
Breakfast was one of the best ones we had on our one-week trip in the south of Poland. Varied and fresh. You are asked how you want your eggs and they are freshly made for you. Choice of salads, cereals, breads, fruits, yogourts, juices. Nothing is missing.
The restaurant was closed the evening we arrived, so I can't comment on it.
Good location to visit Tarnow (5 minutes by car from the center), but you need a car.
The hotel is on a busy street but far enough from the street for this not to be a problem.
Be aware that the air conditioning and ventilation works only if your key-card is inserted in the slot, so it doesn't work unless you are in the room, so I imagine it could get hot in the summer.
The only reason I don't give a 5 to this hotel is the exterior, but as I wrote in my title, don't let this discourage you from going in. You'll be pleasantly surprised.
