Whether you are traveling alone or as a family, you will feel the energy of this mining city in our modern 4-star Novotel Katowice Centrum hotel. Start your day with exercise and breakfast from our buffet. Go for a walk to the city center or organize a business meeting in one of our 6 conference rooms. Stay connected with the world at Novotel thanks to free Internet. In the evening, enjoy a light meal or a drink in our hotel bar.
The smell of food greeted me as I walked into the Lobby - or perhaps I should say a smell of the kitchen. My room however was excellent and room service very speedy. The hotel is expensive though, almost 500PLN - this is very steep by polish standards for a modern 3/4 star hotel. So it's very much geared towards biz people with expense accounts.
Clean, friendly, professional and stunning English speaking staff - No fuzz (even with late check-out)
Absolute bare minimum four-star facilities. Best you can expect in Katowice.
Staff were unfriendly. Would provide no information or assistance e.g. parking until we had presented a credit card. Beds were hard and uncomfortable. Nearly all the hotel stank of cigarette smoke, though to be fair our non-smoking room only slightly smelled of it. The walk to the city centre was unmarked and passed through badly-lit streets and goes via the prostitute district. Car parking was 30 Euros per night, an obscene rate for a hotel outside the centre of a medium-sized city.
Comfort and silence, hotels position
