“Beautiful hotel in a great location with some room for improvement”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Berberys is a beautifully designed hotel located just outside central Kazimierz in a beautiful area of trees, hills and pleasant walking tracks. Both the common areas and rooms are clean and pretty. There is a large free car park, a nice spa and a spacious restaurant serving tasty and filling breakfasts, lunches and dinners.
There is however some room for improvement:

1. Rooms: There is no mini-fridge in the rooms, which is problematic, especially in the summer; The rooms on the ground floor have no windows that can be opened. Instead they only have glass doors that can be wide open straight to the car park. While the rooms have A/C many guest would appreciate an option to have their windows open without the risk of anybody just walking into the room.

2. Reception: The ladies working there were very polite and friendly, but seemed rather inexperienced and overwhelmed every time more than one guest would show up and ask any question. It took us ages to check in and check out and it seemed that every single question we asked caused a great deal of confusion. I am sure, they will get better with time though.

Overall, it was a very pleasant stay. A bit expensive, but still reasonable considering the timing (the begining of the Kazimierz Film Fest)

The hotel is very new and rooms in the new building are modern and well equipped but the rooms in the old building have character, high ceilings and well decorated. All the staff were exceptionally helpful always greeting you with a smile which made you feel most welcome. With the hotel empty during our stay it was very quiet and peaceful, perfect for relaxation which is what we sought. The beds were comfortable though the use of waterproof mattress covers leads to them somewhat uncomfortable on warm nights. The food, though not a huge choice, was well cooked, well presented and reasonable in price however beverages and wines were over priced. The distance from the town and the mass of visitors was no problem in fact a distinct advantage. All in all a very pleasant stay.

I stayed at this new hote and enjoyed very much - calm, silent, despite located a bit far from the center, but for me it was an advantage - a short walk from the center was just perfect. The food was ok, anything special - typical hotel breakfast. Nice staff. Clean rooms. Parking available.

Wonderful hotel in a wonderful setting marred by a few glitches. The management needs a change for the following reaosns:
Only coffee available is instant! Awful taste and when has a 4 star hotel just put out a jar and a spoon and assumed guests would be satisfied.
A spa that charges PLN 10 to use a robe
A toilet that ran constantaly unless one shut off the water entirely - so maintenance is poor.
Sealed - locked tight - emergency exits in violation of the law
Having to carry luggage up the stairs as there is no elevator and the doors to the outside are locked so one enters via the basement.
No in room safe
A bar that is un attended and staff that did not know what alcohol they could sell.

Yes the design inside is beautiful and staff generally try to overcome what seems to be awful management

It was so quiete, peacefull there, I can't even describe. After two days driving from Russia it was almost heaven to stay in this place. It is new and fashionable, the breakfast was very nice, there was range of food to choose from. If you are on foot, you will have to walk a while to the city centre, but surroundings are so charming, that you will not mind walking. The town is also really outstanding!
