This is surely the best place to stay in Torun - you could not be more conveniently-located than in this pretty, ancient watermill conversion, situated within the walls of the old town. Parking is available for a small charge and proved no problem as we reserved a space in advance. The hotel car park has a door that leads without steps to the reception - all very convenient when bringing in suitcases. The welcome at reception was warm, and this was the case throughout the hotel - a very friendly and obliging set of hosts. The hotel inside is modern in design, but tastefully decorated to incorporate original features of the building. Our roomy bedroom was good, with a comfortable king-size bed, air-conditioning (not used as it was not warm enough), a small table with two chairs, the all-important tea and coffee-making facilities, and complimentary bottles of mineral water. The bathroom was a decent size too, containing a shower cubicle (no bath), toilet and basin. The shampoo, shower gel and soap provided were also fine. Food at the restaurant of the hotel is to be highly recommended. We had a fantastic dinner, which was extremely good value bearing in mind the high quality of everything we ordered. There is also a decent wine list, also priced very reasonably. Breakfast was also pleasant - fairly typical buffet fayre, but good quality products, well-executed and sufficiently-varied. A few areas where improvement could be made though - TV channels were numerous, but none was in English (or anything other than Polish, I think); the wifi (included in the room cost) signal was weak so devices could not be used when sitting outside the bar, moreover the signal was not strong enough in the bedroom for anything other than email download; our table for dinner (reserved more than a month before our visit) turned out to be round a corner of the lovely restaurant - in full view of the swinging doors to the kitchen, the empty buffet table for the following day's breakfast, and a pile of stacked up 'spare chairs'. (This was not the restaurant experience I had been seeking!...) It seems almost churlish to mention these points as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel 1231, but hope the management might take them in the spirit with which they are intended - to further improve their already strong customer offer. I would stay here again without hesitation and would recommend any visitor to wonderful Torun does the same.
