Ikar Hotel
Ranked #26 of 74 Hotels in Poznan
Reviewed August 28, 2011

We felt very welcomed from the moment we walked in and we loved the 70’s, soviet era looks of this hotel.
Our room was spacious, clean, comfortable, with a full bathtub and an old fashion key – so much easier to find in your bag than the electronic cards that have become the norm.
If you need a last minute hair cut, there’s a hairdresser in the lobby. We haven’t tried it but we were tempted just to prolong our stay there because this hotel is very endearing thanks to its staff and the general atmosphere of a gone-by era.
We were the only customers at the restaurant and were pampered by the young waiter who served us delicious wholesome traditional Polish dishes. We must really commend the waiter for his enthusiasm for his work.
The buffet breakfast was excellent with a wide selection of traditional Polish breakfast fares such as gherkins and cucumber salad but if it's not your cup of tea there is also a great variety of pastries, bred, cereals, sausages etc.
We will remember this hotel as one of the highlights of our trip.

The hotel looks very forbidding - a typical communist era concrete skyscraper.
However, the hotel offers a good 3 star option with sensible prices.
Reception was friendly and efficient, and public areas have undergone a facelift. The decor of the single room was a bit dark, but there was a small entrance corridor, a spacious room with two big comfy armchairs and a grat view back to the town.
Everything worked fine. Breakfast was very good, with both hot and cold items, including some typically Polish dishes, and some really nice little cakes. The restaurant menu also looked pretty good if you wanted to stay home in the evening.
On the minus side, the t.v. had no Engish speaking channels ( available on request at the bar only ), and the bar was really just a part of the entrance to the restaurant.

The walk to the old market square is an easy 15 minutes or less, but without much of interest en route. When it is pouring with rain, this seems much longer....

If you want to be within easy striking distance of the old town at a sensible price, and are happy with the 70s retro style, then the Ikar provides a good value and comfortable base.

Hotel located just 10 min walk from old town. A bit noisy at day time street near, but if you prefer conditioning and closed windows - no problems. Bus and tram stops near.
Very clean rooms, just somewhere cosmetic repair needed. Hotel has restaurant and breakfast served in restaurant area. Tasty and wide selection of foods.
Recommend!

Even the rooms are a little bit modernised, furniture and equipment - and in fact the whole hotel - is still in old Sovjet style.
The worst is that there is no airco in the rooms and in summer all are very, very hot and due to the street (on both site of the hotel, you can't have a quiet room) it's impossible to leave the windows open all the night. Also in the evening it isn't a good idea: all kind of insects find the way to your room due to the lack of closing curtains - which let all light inside: in summer you'll wake up very easy!
Bathroom is just ok, but more like an old 2 stars hotel.
Don't use the parking: the price is exorbitant (100 zloty for 2 days, this is +/- 25 euro) and you can park your car whitout problems 50 m away.
The good point on this hotel is the excellent breakfast buffet, but I'm sure you can find a better a place for the price that I payed.
The location is also good: easy to reach with the car and also close to the city center.

Room Tip: seeks a room as high as possible for insects!

This hotel is just the kind of Polish hotel that is unfortunately dying out as international chains homogenise them all. It is in a communist era concrete block which was the major selling point for me. I had an economy room for approx £30 per night with parquet floors, balcony and a clean and comforatble bed and bathroom with no frills. Nice touch was a fridge to keep beers cold and the bright airy rooms let lots of warm sun in even though it was March. The breakfast was served in a newly modernised spotless restaurant with lots of choice.....delicious srambled eggs and sausages with freshly baked bread rolls of different varieties each day. The staff were not over the top friendly as they took their jobs very seriously and gave an attentive and excellent response to any request made of them. I look forward to staying here again as it was close to all attractions and public transport....brilliant value!
