I looked at this hotel already last year, when I found out about the yearly “Light Move Festival” – but my dance program was a bit too full for making it to Łódź.
The location, rooms and the PRICE just perfect. We paid around 182€ per double room with breakfast for 5 nights, but I had totally missed was that the hotel didn’t have any lift …. and we arrived and noticed that the lobby and entrance was one HIGH level up, I didn’t know what to believe.
Then we got rooms on the 3rd floor, that meant 2 more steps up. But the luggage only needs to go up once, and the young lady in the reception took both our bags and just ran up the stairs.
My room (301) are very big … had everything – a safe, hairdryer and a fridge for own gods. A big bathroom with a great shower. The bed very comfortable. Rooms and whole hotel very clean.
The rooms were very well soundproofed because with all everything going on outside during the festival I didn’t hear anything if the windows were closed.
Unlimted free freshly made coffee in the reception and apples, plus a bottle of mineral water every day … free too. Coffee and tea facilities making in the room. And on the reception desk a big glass bowl with sweets, which I liked.
Ann-Christine’s room where slightly bigger than mine and it had a little pantry with microwave.
If I have to I complain about something … it has to be the hangers in the wardrobe, very poor plastic and the buckled when I hang two pairs of trousers on one. And in my room was there no shelving for jumpers, knickers and things like that in the wardrobe. But I manage and I survived, but the hangers annoyed me. IKEA has cheap wooden hangers!!!!!
The breakfast was good and enough things to choose from to keep us going until lunch, a small buffet with a selection of both hot and cold dishes.
There is no restaurant at the hotel, but there is a bar where we could have bought any drinks we fancy. The bar is located in the breakfast room. I understand does the hotel have a nightclub, nothing that I noticed anything from.
The wifi worked fine for me, but Ann Christine had problems and had to use the router for the floor above.
We could see that the owner plan to open another hotel on the opposite side of the Piotrkowska Street, a 4-star hotel with LIFT. The building is just standing empty for the moment.
City Center Rooms, have fantastic reviews … I booked our rooms with Booking.com (I do most my hotel bookings with them – 96%) and with them, they have 9.1 – with Hotels.com, 4.3 – Google 4.5 – Expedia, 4.3. – TripAdvisor, 4,5. And it’s easy to understand why this 3-star hotel is up there in the top. One of the most popular hotels in the city and have a lot higher points than Grand Hotel.
Have plans to return to Łódź for Christmas 2018 and I would love to stay at City Center Rooms again, I don’t care about the lift and I can bring hangers with me. *smile – but I want to have access to a restaurant in the hotel because on Christmas Eve everything is closed in Poland.
The hotel has its FREE carpark and all the staff talks very good English plus they are SO pleasant and nice.
On their website’s booking pge, you can choose from many language and currency.
All images I have been using here is from the hotel’s website. And what you see is what you get, except the breakfast … no white tablecloths.
