It’s time to give another hotel review, and yet again in Poland, the latest base on my journey. You might remember how I ranked Poland in my top 11 countries from a 120+ country journey and it’s clear to see why for any person that possesses intelligence. Anyone that visits Poland, I defy you not to love this place. I’ve been to lots of parts of Poland now and after a bad spell, I settled on visiting the city of Bydgoszcz. The idea of Autumnal air and the Polish canal city really appealed.

Venice has been named the “Bydgoszcz of Italy” after this place, so I got booked into the Hotel Zawisza and was ready to explore this little gem. Poland’s 8th biggest city. Here are my top five reasons to stay here, in the nice suburb of Lesna.

1.Pristine Rooms
When I tell people about Poland and how clean, tidy and cosy it is, others from the international world outside are surprised. Please stop being surprised. Poland is Europe’s superpower and it will shine long before and after Germany, France or England ever will.

In the hotel stakes, this is officially a 2 star. I have stayed in 4 stars in Germany and England that were in much worse condition.

I was in room 107. It was pristine. It was immaculate. I wasn’t surprised. I haven’t been feeling 100% recently but here, I had a great room to help me. To help me raise a smile.

2.Breakfast Included
The breakfast is always included here at Hotel Zawisza and is healthy and consistent. The coffee is also from a machine. Expect good cheese, Polish sausages, eggs, juice, yoghurts and a range of cereals. As ever, it’s an all you can eat, so I went up a few times.

3.Football and Sports Nearby
Well I had a window view to the excellent football stadium and the Hotel Zawisza is in a sporting area. This means not just athletics tracks and football pitches, but a gym, spa and as well as this – you can get massages and have a sauna.

4.Working Wi-Fi
These days, almost every good hotel and hostel in Poland has fast working Wi-Fi. I remembered back to my first two visits to Poland, when I wasn’t even blogging. These days I take it for granted of course. Thankfully I had a nice desk and good Wi-Fi here at Hotel Zawisza.

5.Out of City Location
I enjoyed being away from the big city buzz. It was nice and quiet in the Lesna area of Bydgoszcz – I arrived at the local train station here too. If you do want to stay in the city centre – go for the Hotel Przystan but for me, at this time of my life – the Hotel Zawisza was perfect. I enjoyed my time here.

  • Looks nice.

    In all your Polish journeys have you ever been out to the Białowieża Forest? I’ve always wanted to go, I imagine at this time of year it must be crazy beautiful.

  • So good places and hostel is looking so good to stay. So stunning photos you shared of that place.

  • Hi David, thanks for the comment. I have never been to the Białowieża Forest but will spend a lot more time in Poland in future so hopefully we can both see it someday. Safe travels. Jonny

  • looks absolutely terrible, not sure if it is your awful photos but im grateful for this review so I know where not to stay. In addition, if it is a hotel review, why do you include so many ‘selfies’ of your own face? Self involved much.

  • Hi Alex, It was a nice hotel. It is a sad time for me so this was a welcome stay. You have your opinion and didn’t enjoy it but my room was so cosy and the staff were perfect. Self portraits and self involved all due to my condition, I aim to highlight my depression a bit more as I battle on. Peace, love and best wishes to you. Jonny

  • Hi Adam, thanks for the comment. Prices vary from 160 zloty and up, so say £35 a night including breakfast for a double room. There are higher quality suites too but I was happy with my room. Safe travels. Jonny
