Being on a "budget" this hotel was a treat. Many hotels have nice rooms but what stood out to us was the wellness/spa area. We used it that night and again the next morning at 7am, normally we have found they do not open that early. It was clean and nice. The room was also quiet and there was air conditioning which is usually not present.
My one complaint was the breakfast bar (included with the price), we came about 9am, one hour after it was opened and most of the spread was gone. We expected more to be brought out but for the 30-40 minutes we were there nothing was refurbished. Several people came in after us and had even less. Make sure you go early to get the good stuff! The cappuccinoes rocked though, we had several.
We walked to the mine for the tour at 11am (3hr tour), we left the car in the free secure parking lot they have. Very convenient for our checkout day.
It would have been nice if we got a discount at the mine, but that is just us, we are always looking for the deals.

the hotel is based just next to the entrance to the most popular salt mine in Poland which is good advantage for foreign visitors, the restaurant serves great meals, the staff is very helpful, hotel itself offers many useful options to make the stay as much comfortable as its possible

Room Tip: if you want to pay a bit more choose the appartment

Cecilia was our waitress and she was so dear and sweet, we ate outside and it was wonderful! The food and wine was excellent! My sister, her husband and teenage son and my teenage son can be hard to please- but they all rated the service and food- that is our dinner and desert - 5 stars! We also give Cecilia credit because she was so nice and made sure everything, our food and drink and even our seating was perfect! We also saw the Salt Mines, a must see for all!

Room Tip: we didn't stay in the hotel, I will stay next time!

I didn't stay here but I was sorry I didn't after myself and my fiance had lunch here. We went in after visiting the salt mines next door. The restaurant was spacious and beautifully decorated and the waiter was extremely friendly and polite. We ordered main courses and drinks and then our waiter arrived with a complimentary starter of pate. I am not usually a fan but found it delicious and the main courses were excellent too. The food was cooked to perfection and there was plenty of it. The whole lunch came to 68pln (about 17euro) which, for a four star hotel, was extremely reasonable. Definitely drop in for a bite if you are visiting the salt mines. The hotel is literally a minute away which was great since it was raining heavily that day.

Loved this hotel, formerly a place where people "took the waters" that came up from the adjacent salt mine, the largest in the world. In the middle of a pretty park. Dripping with atmosphere but totally updated with all modern amenities, it was beautiful, spotless, a generous room, completely sound-proof. Staff couldn't have been nicer--even gave us a going away present. Food was very good, with regional and European specialties.

Fantastic hotel, nice rooms, free internet in the room, floor heating in the bathroom. Intimate atmosphere, wonderfully caring service, we felt really welcome and would go there again anytime! Some starters in the restaurant not particularly good, but the soups and main courses were excellent and not very expensive.
