“Reasonable Hotel for a short stop”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

If arriving/departing by public transport this is a good option as the Hotel is opposite the main station, near the bus stop for the airport and well connected by tram to the rest of the city.
There is a restaurant on the ground floor and breakfast is served in another room but service does not start until 07.30, not much use if one needs an early start, and the choice of food was pretty limited, only one kind of fruit juice, few hot options, no fruit.
My room was spacious and clean but air-con was not working although English speaking receptionist fixed it by replacing the batteries in the control unit: there was a puddle on the floor in the bathroom where a radiator was leaking: luggage rack was broken so luggage had to be placed on the chair: a kettle but very limited stock of tea, coffee, no milk.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on the top floor

Perfectly clean, with proffesional staff and very clean rooms. *** star hotel with 4* hotel standards! Highly recommended! Location is also perfect, directly in town centre. Walk distance to Railway station and city center.

The hotel is right opposite the train station, so convenient if you are passing through. The price is good and the staff were very nice and helpful..there was a big breakfast if you want to pay the $10 extra. A lot of trams connect right across the street that go into the older part of the city..just buy a ticket at the machine.

Room Tip: ask for one away from the streets.

Absolutelly disapointed. The room I got was cold, noisy and dirty. The staff not well trained, I did not expect them speaking German, but English would be appreciated in a three star hotel in Wroclaw.

A good location, very clean and beautifull presented but........ when, on a Wednesday I enquired about the price I was told 219 Zl. but when I said that I wanted the room for the Thursday the price shot up to 339 Zl and this was for a room with no view at all. Upon enquiring why I was told "prices vary" and later the word "festival" was mumbled alough I could find no sign of this. To add insult to injury I was then informed that breakfast was not included.
Actually the staff were really nice and I would, sort of, understand the price hike had I wanted a Friday or weekend night, but for a Thursday?

Reviewed 19 October 2013

I booked this hotel on Booking.com over a month before my stay and was quoted a price of £91 for two rooms for 1 night including breakfast.

A couple of days later my credit card was debited by £95.61 and when I called Booking.com to find out why, they put me on hold whilst they called the hotel. A few minutes later they advised me that the hotel had confirmed that they had taken £95.61 in error, but refused to refund the difference. Booking.com said there was nothing that they could do and so I disputed the charge with me credit card company and after about 7 calls and 2 letters the difference was refunded to me by my credit card company.

The hotel opened in July 2013 and is very clean, but already has a dated feel to it. The wifi router has been put at the end of each floor, instead of the middle, so my room, which was at the other end of the corridor to the router had no internet signal.

I also called the hotel before my stay to request a quiet room as the hotel is on a busy main road and they advised me that this would be no problem. On arrival, I was given a room overlooking the main road and was woken a couple of times in the night by shouting and traffic coming from outside. The hotel rooms are very spacious and had big bathrooms, not sure if many have baths in them.

The hotel has an ok buffet but it could do with a little more variety. All the hotel staff were very friendly, although I was advised on arrival that my booking was room only and when I checked again later with another member of staff I was advised that breakfast was included.

The hotel has 3 free car parking spaces right outside the front door and there is plenty of parking nearby, but check with the hotel reception to see if there are any charges for the other spaces.

The hotel is directly opposite the main railway station and about a 15 minute walk to the centre of town, but there are lots of trams close by.

Room Tip: Get a room away from the main road
