I stayed at the NH for three weeks and cannot complain too much overall but here are a few notes …
The free “basic” Wi-Fi includes 24 hours of 128 Kbit with 100 MB of download and 50 MB of upload. You have to get a slip from the front desk to sign in. I tried the “premium” Internet for EUR 9.90 (which gives you “privileged” access) once but I could not see that much of an improvement. I even called the service number and was told that there are still limitations if too many folks access the Internet from the hotel. The other times I tried to “upgrade” ran into issues where the system gave me some error message … so I just gave up and worked with the “basic” access.
Breakfast (including the Battle of the Coffee Maker)
The buffet-style breakfast was very nice and offered a wide variety of selections. Things did not really change over the three weeks I stayed there but there was enough to choose from.
There were just two problems with that. First … the single (fresh coffee-grinding) coffee maker took way too long. So expect a very long line if there is a large travel group having breakfast or there are some “technical” issues (“NO WADA” means that the water tank has to be refilled). Second … make sure that breakfast is included in your room rate. They will charge you a way overpriced 68 Złoty (~ $20) otherwise. This will be “presented” after you started having your breakfast even though it seems like your room was on “a” list they have when entering the restaurant. The problem is that there are two lists where one is for complimentary breakfast and the other one for non-complimentary … but nothing is obvious.
Bar & Restaurant
The hotel bar and restaurant is actually very nice. I ate there several nights and liked the food.
I think the A/C in my room was broken but was told that it was taken care of. I guess they did take care of a missing light bulb for the light on the desk but missed the bulb in the bathroom. Maybe the same happened with the A/C? The hot weather was only an issue the first week but I believe that this was not fixed even after mentioned to the front desk several times.
The desk and chair is definitely not made for business travelers who need to work there after hours. The hotel bar and restaurant was actually much more comfortable.
The one room feature I really liked is the drawer underneath the sink. This is very slick way of putting away all the toiletries without cluttering the counter.
The folks there were all very nice and polite but the front desk was not all that helpful when trying to resolve an issue with the wrong rate being booked by the travel agency. I kept getting the go-around of who could actually fix the problem with the reservation.
