Hotel is conveniently located. The rooms are always clean and in good order. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. I would say the restaurant is way above average and serves meals to very late hours (23:00).

The hotel is currently renovating the lobby/restaurant/bar areas. It looks very modern but welcoming. Also 3 floors of the rooms have been redecorated/upgraded. More floors are planned. Be sure to ask for a renovated room.

We have stayed here just for one night on our way back home from Bulgaria. The room was spacious and well setup. Kids have used the pool in the morning before taking the breakfast. They also have nice sauna facilities. Breakfast itself was wonderful, and the staff was very friendly We used a car parking outside of the hotel which was around 7 EUR. Truly enjoyed and would definitely stay here again.

Any hotel lives and dies by its staff and here at the Novotel Katowice the staff are top class, yes there is a language barrier but that does not matter here because they listen and accept the fact that you don't speak their language. As long as you attempt a few words they smile with gladness. The rooms here are all suitable and clean, however I'm travelling with my wife and strongly suggest that if you're travelling as a couple you book a "suite" room as they are more suited to two people for space and comfort. All 3 type rooms here are really the same size but the suite has an adjoining room with an extra bathroom area, closet space and sitting area.

The breakfast is good and the variety ok, its the same as most hotels, but with a range of sausages, haha, love a good Polish sausage, also the coffee is good, which means a lot in the morning. Also the room service variety is great, many different meals from a range of countries and they come hot and delicious which for us was fantastic.

Don't be fooled by Katowice being and industrial town it has lots to offer the traveler and you could send 10 days here and not see it all and the other advantage of the is hotel is that it is just off the centre of the city, about 10-15 minutes lovely walk to the shops, ATM'S and cafe's etc.

The internet here is brilliant, one of the best service I've ever had.....

For the price you pay at this hotel (suite room) you're getting a good room with great service and that what a stay is all about being comfortable and service.

I recommend this hotel and thank the staff in particular reception. Enjoy we did

Room Tip: Suggest you select a suite room if stinging as couple, you will have a better stay.

Just returned from a 3-day stay at this hotel after attending the nearby 'Off' music festival (which was excellent), and I'm sorry to say that I feel compelled to report back on a number of disappointing issues, two of three which were excusable but the third - totally unacceptable,

Firstly, there was a persistent fault with the lock on our room door. I can accept that glitches do from time to time occur with electrical devices (an argument for just using actual keys but that's that), and the lady on reception was very obliging in getting the issues revolved. However, still not what you want at 4 a.m. after being at a music festival all day and night.

Secondly - who in the world wants to be woken at 9 a.m., when on holiday, by a cleaner breezing through your door shouting "cleaning!"? Just doing her job, I know, and okay we should have hung the 'do not disturb' sign up but after the saga five hours earlier in trying to gain access to the room, it slipped my mind but... 9 a.m?? DO IT LATER!!

My final issue is a bit more serious and something that I feel rather aggrieved by, and relates to the breakfast room service that was on offer. Having noticed a form detailing this offer, inviting us to tick some boxes if we wanted breakfast brought up to the room the following morning, we decided this would be a good idea due to how late we were returning from the festival. We had not paid in advance for breakfast, so when the food was brought up to the room the member of staff advised that I need to hand over the cash to him directly which I did without question.

However, when we came to check-out, the man at reception requested this money again. I explained that I had already paid his colleague, only to be asked "well did you get a receipt?" No, I did not. What followed was us being held up and in suspicion in a crowded reception, whilst he tried to locate the restaurant manager. Surely, the responsibility lies with them to ensure payment is recorded for room service? I found it hugely insulting to be accused of trying to have the hotel over for a £20 breakfast. "Well you can just pay for the room for now whilst we try to get to the bottom of this..." Thanks but at that point we were only ever going to pay for the room full stop mate because if your colleague has trousered the money then that's your problem and not ours. Totally unacceptable and not even the merest hint of an apology, even after the restaurant bloke finally came forward with his surly acknowledgement that we had in fact already paid. Two chaps who perhaps need to be sent on a refresher course in customer service. And if anyone is interested we checked out at 11:45 a.m. on 4/8/14.

Room Tip: Make sure the key works, and GET A RECEIPT for EVERYTHING!

Spent two nights here. Hotel is about 15 minutes walk from the main centre and 20 minutes from train station. Excellent helpful staff. Room spotlessly clean and the standard Novotel format. Breakfast has plenty of choice. The a la carte dinner menu was superb. Perhaps a little expensive but amongst the best food encountered at any Novotel.
