        Friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms, good breakfast and very good location.

        Nice dining room and well situated near the square. Reception staff were helpful.

        We were given a room in the annex. Our room was not pleasant, very small and dated. There was just enough room to walk around the beds and hardly any gap between them. We did not have a safe, mini bar or terry bathrobes. The bathroom was tiny, no bath, shower only, which was adequate to wash as the shower was hot, but the tiling old and black in parts. I wouldn't go back to this hotel in case I was put into the annex again. My sisters room was also in the annex and was far bigger than ours, but the decor was the same. Our room had the yellow throws and blue carpet. It seemed smaller than the one in the picture shown on the website. I asked if there were any rooms in the main hotel, but reception said the hotel was full.

        街の中心から歩いて5分程でロケーションは悪くないです。朝食はポーランドの典型的な朝ごはんでした。観光でしたらちょうどいいホテルだと思います。部屋も明るく清潔でした。We enjoyed our stay. good location, clean and bright room.

        We stated at the top floor. The room was bright and clean but because of the big windows that we can not open made the room very warm. It would be nice if we can open windows.

        The hotel was excellent situated only a few minutes off the main square. Full Breakfast was varied and complete. Hotel staff was friendly and fullfilled our wishes. I 'll come back to this hotel.

        Location is good. The room was quiet. Free internet in rooms (with cable).

        Hotel was only a 5-10 minute walk from the Main Square on a side street so fairly quiet at night. Good they serve traditional Polish breakfast until 10am so you get a bit of a lie-in. Receptionists speak perfect English and are helpful in whatever advice you want from changing currency to booking trips or even phoning a taxi for you to the airport. Nice spacious rooms. En suite shower room featured power shower which I love. Room serviced to a very high standard each day, clean towels, loads of toilet paper, etc.

        Hallways to room were poorly lit which meant you couldn't find where you're room key went on occasions if you came back drunk! No tea/coffee facilities in room. Mini bar in room is only available with key from reception. Didn't use it then. Air conditioning worked in room (12) but found it didn't seem to blow out the air temperature required. Only English channels on TV were BBC World and sometimes the odd music video on their Polish music station.

        the hotel seems to be divided into two parts a new part and and old part in a separate building we were in this older part which is not as nice as the other part.

      • Single
        8.2

        The location is close to the center of the old town. The staff was pretty good and the breakfast was good.

        I tried to get email directions to the hotel from the airport and it was difficult for me to get them from the staff.

        Good clean room. Value for money and a good breakfast

        Noise from school kids running in corridor at night keeping guests awake

      • Older travelers
        5.4

        The staff were polite and courteous and the breakfast which was part of the price was very good with extensive choice

        We were not allocated our double room as booked but a twin room. The drain in the bathroom smelled badly.

      • Single
        9.2

        Ease of access and close to city centre

        No tea or coffee making facilities after breakfast ended

      • Single
        7.8

        solid 3 stars in the very centre, recommended if the price is good

        room doors not soundproof, it can seriously disturb your sleep if you have a bad luck to have a group of tourists wandering through the corridor at night.

      • Single
        8.8

        nice, modern hotel, in the very centre. solid 3 stars and excellent price.

        noisy ventilation system, but the reception turned it off at my request, other than that - i have no remarks

        Hotel very pleasant, helpful staff and well situated.

        The lack of bar service in the evening to have a drink.

        10.0

        Single Room, 3 nights in Alexander I Hotel. Excelent location just a few steps away from main square and only about 1,5 km from the railway station. Therefore absolutely everything is wthin a walking distance. Friendly staff and excellent buffet breakfast included with a great choice of different food. Room was small, cozy, very clean and comfortable. With TV, hot shower, hotel facilities and the possibility to plug in your computer for internet. I also found a great and cheap price for 3 nights through Booked.net, so I ended up very happy with my stay in this hotel.
