“Clean, friendly, great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

Perfectly clean, a rather large and comfortable room, a great location, and a very friendly and capable staff all make Vaniila a great place. The location could not be better, right in the center of town about 50 meters from the old city. My room was in the back and extremely quiet. The breakfast was very good, ask them to make you a fruit pancake or two, they are big and very healthy. The restaurant is also quite good. I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: The front faces a potentially busy area, the back is totally silent.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014

A big plus for the hotel is a place in a very center of Lublin. They have a parking as well , but the problems are - 1) you can not drive to the entry of the hotel - it is a pedestrian zone 2) so you have to park smwhere , go to the hotel,ask from the personel how to find the way to parking lot...
Air conditioning in rooms is bad, we have spent 2 nights in differnt rooms - the same result -very warm place to sleep
Rooms are clean and nice
Personell is attentive, breakfast is very good. Cafe at the same place is nice
So, I liked everyhing exept parking lot quest, air-conditioning and a quite a high price ( IMHO)

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013 via mobile

Hotel is in fab location and the rooms are beautifully decorated and kitted out to a very high standard, but for me the temperature in the room was uncomfortably hot causing difficulty sleeping, cramp and sickliness. The windows don't open wide enough and in addition there is a lot of noise from people passing outside and this can go on into the early hours especially at the weekend.

Should imagine this is not a problem in the summer months when the AC is operational and again during the winter time when the heating needs to be on so high.

Not sure whether this contributed to the cause of the problem but our room seemed to be located directly above the kitchen of the restaurant below the hotel.

We attempted to lower the temperature control in the room ourselves to no avail and then spoke to reception who advised that if we turned it off all together it should be more comfortable. We did this but it did not make much of a difference.

With the outside temperature only being around 11 degrees overnight there is no way that the room should be so hot, not sure whether the a/c in our room was broken or it is possible that the hotel had switched it off throughout the building, however if the latter applies maybe the hotel need to consider making this option available to their guests during the autumn months so that you have the choice whether or not to use it.

On checking the booking.com website the rooms are described as air conditioned and it does not specify that this facility is restricted to the summer months, for me the heat in the room let what would otherwise be a brilliant hotel down and would probably put me off returning which is a shame.

Excellently maintained and managed establishment totally let down by its wafer-thin walls
Could clearly hear conversations and running water etc. from adjoining rooms

Many rooms open onto a busy pedestrian street so don't expect to sleep with the window open
Additionally, the Hotel's café pumps music onto it's front-facing terrace from early morning 'til late at night

Breakfast needs to be improved - some dishes looked so terribly dried out - butter is a scarce commodity!

Room Tip: Insist upon having a room on the 2nd floor that does not adjoin another room's shower room

We stayed two nights at this small and newly refurbished hotel right in the heart of Lublin. It was very clean, friendly staff and a small and fresh breakfast. Prepare for some noise from the main walking street, but what can you expect on a weekend down town?
There is a parking aprox. 100 meter from the hotel and the best part, the value is great in this beautiful town.

Excellent location – in the pedestrian street in front of the new town hall.
Parking in a nearby garage (150 m). Costs 30 PLN. If you come on weekend (as we did) you can park for free in the streets nearby (until 0800 on Monday).
Large rooms (Studio room is bigger but not worth the extra money), small (comfortable) beds. Rooms are dark – the light in the room comes from 4 25 watts incandescent bulbs. I wonder why they do not change it to PLs. Small window in the room. The curtain of the window is half transparent.
Not enough power outlets.
Very small shower.
Very small TV.
No coffee/tea machine in room. No refrigerator. Good free Internet service.

We spent only 1 night in this small hotel but we hope to come back there one day. The hotel is situated in the very heart of Lublin. The receptionist we met was helpful and polite. The room was spacious, modern and clean though a bit too dark. The hotel seems to be a proper choice for couples, not necessary with kids. Breakfast was tasty .

Room Tip: ask for a room in light colours
