Holland House's staff were helpful before we even arrived: we requested one of the rooms at the very top of the building, and on arrival found our perfect hotel room. It was up in the roof (there's a lift), spacious, airy, nicely decorated, clean, and generously heated. The fresh flowers shown in the pictures on the hotel's website were only there for photography day, but that is quite normal in the trade. The daily housekeeping standard is very high, though we had to go and buy some shampoo and conditioner. The location on the Long Market cannot be faulted, with the quite amusing exception of the audible soundtrack of the Kleopatra restaurant opposite, which starts at about 8am, continues until the evening, and is composed of the same Jamie Woon album on loop. The view can't really be better, especially once you work out how to unscrew the safety bar that otherwise stops you from opening the window fully.
We pre-paid without breakfast, which turned out to be a good decision. Breakfast is widely available elsewhere nearby, especially if you like a decent coffee and a typically under-sweet Polish pastry for about 10 PLN per person. Many of the cafés don't open until 11am on Sundays, at least out of season. We did breakfast at Holland House one morning, but the coffee was pretty bad and the buffet breakfast not really to our taste. The fruit offering was whole apples and oranges in a bowl. If you like macaroni putanesca, or slices of cold pork with cranberry sauce, then perhaps Holland House's breakfast is for you after all. (Yes of course I ate both!)
