My first hotel in Olsztyn was the Best Western Plus which is a short walk from the city centre. It’s a grand building, but I couldn’t find out anything more about its heritage other than the hotel saying it’s a “pre-war antique tenement” building on their web-site.
The room has a modern design, which seems to fit in with the dynamics of the Best Western Plus programme. The hotel’s web-site also says that it’s the first four-star hotel that opened in Olsztyn.
Nice touches of class, by having some potpourri dumped around the shower cap.
I do like a hotel which offers a decent breakfast, primarily because I’m quite greedy. There was a wide selection of food, although the choice wasn’t as extensive on the second morning as on the first. Lots of variety with the cold meats, as well numerous cheeses, breads and cereals. Also, I did like the cake that was provided, not too stodgy.
I could only book two nights at this hotel as they were full for what would have been my third night. It seemed rather busy when I was there, although there were no noise issues, and the breakfast room was rather crowded on one morning.
The hotel was quite expensive by Polish standards, costing just over £40 per night including breakfast. All very acceptable though, and there were tea & coffee making facilities in the room, along with free bottles of water.
