Radisson Blu Wroclaw hotel review

Radisson Blu Wroclaw, Poland has a good location in the city for touring Old Town Market Square and Cathedral Island with its medieval churches. These tourist areas are within ten minutes walk and Wroclaw train station is about a 20 to 25 minute walk from the hotel or a quick tram ride.

The hotel is a Club Carlson category 3 hotel reward night at 28,000 points. I stayed on the discontinued, as of Feb 2017, Gold elite member 2-for-1 weekend rate for a Saturday and Sunday night stay for 165 PLN per night ($41 USD per night).

My room was on the 4th floor and fairly large.

Rad Blu King bed

The King bed offered comfortable pillows and bath robes were laid out. A chocolate on the pillow.

The room had a Nespresso coffee maker. I always hate it when one of the coffee pods drops into the machine waste pile before without being used. I could not figure out how to retrieve it. Good thing there were five more that actually turned into coffee. Hotels are the only place I ever use these coffee pod machines.

The view outside looked onto a park space.

I did not explore the area in front of the hotel or even take a photo of the hotel front or lobby. I used the hotel room and the fitness room, but did not see much else in the hotel. Saturday night looked to be a wedding party at the hotel with guests in fancy dress in the lobby.

The bathroom offered both a bath tub and separate shower stall.

Rad Blu room 7

My photo of the sink is out of focus., but I show it here to complete the bathroom layout.

Rad Blu room6

There was a scale in the bathroom, which let me know that I had dropped 7 pounds from all my city walking, even while pub crawling for three days in Prague.

Rad Blu room4

There was a welcome amenity tray with chocolate, cookies and apple. A couple of bottles of complimentary water were in the room too.

The fitness center in the basement had fairly new equipment with an exercise bike, elliptical, jogging machine, several weight machines and loads of floor space for exercises. This was one of the largest fitness centers I have seen at hotels I stayed in Poland.

Radisson Blu Wroclaw worked out well with my travel plans at a discount rate of $41 per night with the 2-for-1 weekend deal. Sorry to see that offer be eliminated by Club Carlson, since that has been my primary motivation for booking hotel stays in Europe with the chain the past few years.

Two nights at Park Inn Prague followed by two nights at Radisson Blu Wroclaw provided four good hotel nights in large rooms for about $168 all-in.

These four nights would have earned 20,000 bonus points with Club Carlson’s Earn Bigger Rewards promotion running January 9 – March 31, 2017. I registered for the 8 nights offer for 50,000 bonus points. I will have another 4 nights on 2-for-1 rates in Europe with a trip back to Europe in February-March.
