We chose this hotel because it is only a short tram ride out of town but it is 5 stars and costs barely more than a Travel Lodge type hotel in the UK.
The rooms were excellent, decent size, well decorated and with full facilities. The en-suite was very large with his and hers basins and a large walk-in shower. soaps, creams, etc etc refreshed daily.
The staff were all exceptionally friendly and courteous and all spoke very good English.
The taxi driver serves this hotel and a number of others and he, too, was friendly and provided ecellent service.
The hotel restaurant seems to be attractive to people not staying at the hotel and I would put it on a par to a Michelin starred type establishment in the UK.
The restuarant is medium size with tables catering for about 40 or 50 diners at a time.
We ate in the restaurnat on our first night and it was so good, we ate there every night of our stay.
The food was excellent and provided a good range of options - we tried 5 mains between us and each one was superb. Two courses each plus a bottle of wine and additional beers/drinks etc and all for about £32. Hotel residents also benefit from a 10% discount on the normal restaurant prices.
The tram terminus is a leisurely 10 minute stroll from the hotel and it takes about 10 minutes to get into Old Town Square. All for Zlotys 2.50 (eq £0.55 pence) one way.
It's greta place to stay because you can access all the sights etc of the Old Town very easily yet the hotel is in a quiet location.
