“Trying hard to be a 2 star hotel”
Reviewed 12 November 2012

Stayed here September 2012 for two nights. Picked this hotel because it advertises air conditioning, it only has one floor of rooms; no dragging heavy suitcases up the stairs, was fairly new and ease of parking. Hotel is hard to find. Sits behind a school (?) and through a large parking lot. Only a few of the cars in the parking lot belong to hotel guests. Hotel has a bowling alley and disco though we didn't visit them. We paid 195 PLN per night which included breakfast, free internet and free parking. I requested that our room be away from the disco and it was. Our room (on the first and only floor) was 2 doors down from the restaurant and looked out at the parking lot. Not a big deal because I don't pick hotels for their views since we only sleep there. If there had been a wedding (and there probably is a wedding every weekend), I imagine we would not have been able to sleep. The room was very disappointing. Large stains on the rug, the air conditioning amounted to a small stream of air that was not cooled. We had to use the two table fans we bought. Windows opened but not much air came in and we didn't like leaving them open since we were on the ground floor. Towels were torn and frayed. Hotel will change towels if they are left in the tub. There was only a shower so I left the towels on the floor. They were not changed, beds were not made. The maid only emptied the trash, added a roll of toilet paper and OPENED THE WINDOW! Beds are typical thin mattresses without a box spring.
Room had a TV and phone and was large enough. It's not even a 3 star room though.
Breakfast was EXCELLENT! They have the best homemade yogurt!
Ate dinner one night in the hotel and it also was excellent though we could only get a beer not hard liquor. We would have to go to the disco to get hard liquor.
Waitress was very nice and attentive.
This hotel could easily be a good 3 star hotel if it changed out the bath linens, cleaned the carpeting, trained the maids and didn't advertise air conditioning and bought better mattresses.
I've stayed in two other area hotels which are now quite old and I didn't want to stay in the most expensive hotel in this city because I can't park near the hotel. I really wanted to like the Hotel Nest I may not stay here again.

Room Tip: If you stay here on a Friday or Saturday night, reserve a room away from the restaurant and away fro...

The place is regularly visit by me during my business trips. As I didi't manage to find an interesting one in Inowracław I prefer to stay there and take a 1 hr morning drive.

The hotel is quite new - rebuilt on the basis of old army buildings. Located in the centre of historic town - first capitol and residence of Polish Piast Kings.

They are runnig very nice restaurant inside with delicious food. They also have an inside disco / pub / bowling centre ( with 1 hr of play in the price of your stay ). There are student disco night on thursday which could be a little noisy.

It can be also a good alternative to Poznań hotel during fairs' time (with 1,5 h drive ahaead ).

This is a new hotel with all the amenities, but it is out of town and hard to walk to the center of town for shopping and restaurants.

However, it is in front of the Polish Geological Archive records for northern Poland. If you are on an ancestry hunt - this is the perfect hotel.
