I was slightly worried when I first booked this hotel - It was the cheapest 4 star I could find and was concerned about how far it might be from the Market Square.. Plus if you look at Google Maps, you can clearly see if it is on a fairly main road. I need not have worried. On arrival, the extremely helpful and friendly reception staff let us check in early at no extra cost. We unpacked, checked out the room and then they kindly ordered us a taxi to Market Square as we didn't want to mess about with trams that day. (Taxi from hotel to the square is 20-25 zloty, so £4-5; we never got the tram in the end, found taxis a quick and easy option) - The reception staff were so friendly they even hunted out an umbrella for us to borrow. The room itself was very clean, large and the bed was comfy. Yes, by the morning the sheets would ruffle up, but the beds are made every day so this was not a problem. Yes, the pillows a little thin, but just call reception and ask and they will provide you with alternatives. Literally nothing is too much trouble. Mini bar is expensive in comparison to a bar, yes, but as mini bars go, not at all - Husband had a bottle of bison vodka & carton of juice which made 2 drinks and I had a beer. This came to 30 zloty - So only £6. Not bad mini bar prices in my opinion! 2 bottles of complimentary sparkling water left in the room every day, The shower was hot and powerful, clean, and towels replaced daily if you wanted. The hotel barman is lovely - I think his name was Marik- he's great fun, really knowledgeable about the vodka sampling menu they do and is happy to take you through anything. We had breakfast included - There was certainly lots of choice - Sausage, Egg, bread, cheese, ham, pastries, cake, vegetables, yoghurt, cereal, fruit etc. On the first night we ate at the hotel - Yes the menu is limited, but my goodness me. What wonderful food, it looked like something out of a michelen starred restaurant - Definitely worth a try if you fancy staying local as there's not much else in the area. The spa was also clean and a real welcome break after a long day of walking and sight seeing. Jacuzzi (it's a hot tub really) was nice and hot, Pool was clean and cool and the two saunas were clean and.. well, hot! They provide towels and lockers. We didn't have any treatments but they did not look badly priced. We loved everything about our holiday, and are hoping to return next year; I will have no hesitation in booking the Sympozjum again.
