Poznan Hotels

I will be visiting Poznan early September for a few night. I am
Looking for a nice comfortable hotel in the center of the city. Hopefully the stay includes breakfast.

Last Autumn we stayed at the Garden Boutique Residence and were very happy with the hotel. It's only a few steps from the brilliant old market square and a short walk to a tram stop. The hotel is in an attractive building with a courtyard. I don't think there is a lift, but our room was nice and had a kettle and tea supplies. Breakfast was fine - served in cafe across the street, but that may only have been a temporary arrangement whilst its restaurant was closed.

I hope you have a pleasant stay. We highly enjoyed our few days in the city which has lots of sights of a good variety from mediaeval (much reconstructed after the War, I think), to modern. My only very minor quibble with the city is that both arriving and departing, we found the railway station layout very confusing.

Mara, I can't answer your question, just wanted to let you know that we loved Poznań. We were there for several years decades ago, teaching in the English Language Institute at the Adam Mickiewicz University.

We had university housing, so never stayed in hotels. And it's been so long I'm not comfortable recommending much of anything, except the old town square (Stary Rynek) and the cathedral. Lots of beautiful parks, though, as I recall.

I suggest looking in "The Rough Guide Poland, " used that for staying in Torun (2005), and in Gdansk (2003), good recommendations if you want a small hotel or Pension, exactly suited our tastes and budget.

Posnan was lovely. We stayed in a fully-equipped studio apartment for $40/night, so if that interests you as opposed to a hotel (no breakfast provided, obviously) let me know and I'll look it up again.

@ Maria....To give you some idea how Poznan changed, modernised, whatever word you use, this indicates something.

In our 1999 trip the Mrs wanted to go to Poznan as a day trip, I didn't, ie, doing a day trip from Berlin where we were staying in a Pension. So, the Mrs decided to go by herself.

I spent the day back in Potsdam instead.

The next time in Poznan was in 2005 when we had to change at Poznan train station (we had ca hour) to transfer to Torun as we had taken the train from Berlin to Poznan.

The marked difference in that station was what it offered in terms of an eatery. In 2005 there was a KFC in Poznan central station.
The Mrs said in 1999 that KFC didn't exist in the station.

I stayed at Ilonn Boutique Limanowskiego two years ago. It's such a stylish hotel, next to a beautiful brown stone church. In fact, the neighborhood is lovely. It's not in the center, but in a residential/semi-commercial area, yet close to old town. The breakfast beats many of that at 5* international chain hotels. If you prefer a quiet, authentic neighborhood, then consider this.
