This hotel is not in Katowice but is at the Katowice Airport and so may be convenient for those wishing to be near the airport for an early morning flight as was our case.
We stayed at this hotel for one night in Oct 2012 before flying to Germany the next morning. We were just looking for a place near the airport and not expecting much considering there was only one other hotel coming up on the internet searches. We took a Airport shuttle van from Krakow and they dropped us off right at the hotel which is just a couple minutes off the main road to the airport.
This hotel was a pleasant surprise and certainly not your typical 'airport' accommodations. I can not say enough good things about this hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They actually seemed genuinely glad to see us. Hotel is very near to the Katowice airport and offers free Shuttle service one way. Room was clean, comfortable, a bit on the small side with ensuite. They offer a cooked breakfast buffet but as we were leaving quite early, before the dining room opened, they packed us a boxed breakfast to take with us, no charge. We did not have the chance to use the hotel's extra facilities, but they looked nice. There is very little in the vicinity and so we were resigned to eating dinner at the restaurant in the hotel, which turned out to be quite a fantastic experience, especially considering the fact we were in the woods with nothing in the immediate vicinity but the airport and one other hotel. The food was great, the waiter was fantastic, the surroundings were quite pleasant. The cost was very reasonable also.
Uber friendly staff, great little restaurant on site. Free breakfast
