For a 3* hotel, this was brilliant! The location is the best bit - about 8-10 minute walk from the main market square and near 2 or 3 tram/bus stops to get out to the further parts of town easily. The rooms were clean and spacious. I had a single room but found it to be just the right size. The bathroom was big, clean and had a great power shower. The bed was really comfy. Be careful as it does get very cold at night but there are heaters and the blanket was the right thickness. There was a tv with about 14 channels and an alarm clock and hairdryer which was useful. Towels were changed daily and rooms were cleaned although the sheets weren't always changed and the carpet wasn't vacuumed - which I didn't mind as I was only there for 3 nights but the rooms were in good condition.
The breakfast was excellent. A large variety of hot and cold foods for every taste. The staff were also really helpful and helped us to book our tours to Auschwitz and the Salt Mines. They were always happy to help us with directions and travel arrangements. I would highly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay there again!
