Add generous upgrades and lounge access for Hilton Honors elite members and low award pricing, and the DoubleTree Wroclaw is a great base to explore the Old Town! Read my detailed review of the DoubleTree Wroclaw to see if it is a good fit for your trip to Wroclaw!

Location: The DoubleTree by Hilton Wroclaw is located on the old moat encircling the Old Town. It’s a ten walk to the Market Square and many of the most important sights as well as shops, restaurants and bars are in easy walking distance, making it a great location to explore Wroclaw! The airport is about 20-30 minutes by taxi and 45 minutes by train. The central train station is 5 minutes by taxi or 15 minutes on foot. One of the main tram lines is just one block away.

Service: You arrive into a very modern lobby, with a lots of white and wavy wooden wall panels – it looked very stylish and I really like dit!

The front desk was very friendly, more so than at other hotels in Poland, and had me checked in quickly. They explained the amenities of the hotel and provided information about town. As a Hilton Honors Gold member, I received a room upgrade to a suite and access to the club lounge.
Housekeeping did a thorough job cleaning the room each day and replacing towels and toiletries as appropriate. Bellstaff is available at the entrance to assist with luggage or transportation.

There is no permanent staff at the lounge, but they kept the buffet stocked during breakfast and the evening cocktail hour.
The staff at the Holmes Place fitness center and spa connected to the hotel was just as friendly and gave me the tour of the gym as well as access to the wellness area.

Room: I had booked a King Room and was upgraded to a full suite. You enter through the living room with a wet area and dining set by the entrance.

A sitting area with large wall-mounted TV is arranged by the window. The room is light-filled and large enough to host guests. There is a large desk with task chair, if you need to get some work done.

Through a door, you enter the bedroom with a very comfortable king bed at the center. A large piece of modern art forms the headboard, giving the room a dash of style. You’ll have a padded chair and table by the window.

The luggage bench and a small wooden table opposite the bed are neatly designed into the wall.

Both rooms are very modern, with white walls, blue patterned carpets and stylish wood furniture. The living room could use a little more art work to complement the nice set up.
The closet holds a laptop size safe at shoulder level (thank you), iron & iron board as well as bathrobes and slippers. The suite is well equipped an offers a Nespresso machine (yay) in addition to a kettle for tea. I appreciate that European luxury hotels more and more offer pod coffee makers, at least in suites and upgraded rooms!

The bathroom is smartly positioned between the living room and the bedroom. There is a separate toilet with sink that can be entered from living room. Through another door, you enter the main bathroom with a shower-over-tub and another larger sink. You can reach this room from the bedroom as well. This is a thoughtful design for a suite, as your guests can use the toilet without having to go through your bedroom! The DoubleTree provides standard Crabtree & Evelyn toiletries. The towels are plush!

The free WiFi internet in the room was reliable, fast and very consistent at 5.6Mbps, fast enough to stream video or get work done!

Restaurant & Amenities: The hotel has its own, small gym with cardio equipment and weights for a basic work out. If you are more ambitious, you can utilize the Holmes Place professional gym co-located with the hotel for a fee. It’s a large and very upscale gym, allowing you to stay with whatever routine you have at home.

Holmes Place also manages the wellness area of the DoubleTree. It features a large and very nice indoor pool with some loungers to relax, as well as a sauna, steam room and jacuzzi tub. It’s much nicer than what you typically find at a hotel and very upscale. Staff here is friendly and it’s well maintained. You have to sign in with your hotel information to access it, but it’s free for hotel guests.

DoubleTree Wroclaw Pool & Wellness

The DoubleTree Wroclaw has a nice bar on the ground floor that continues the very modern theme.

There is also an interior courtyard garden. It’s a nice setup and feels generous at a city hotel.

As a Hilton Honor Gold member, I received access to the Executive Club Lounge on the same level as my room. There is no staff and you have access via your room key. The lounge is very spacious – you enter through a large room with lounge style sitting areas on one side, with the feel of a modern library, and bistro style seating against the window. Surprisingly, the lounge was very busy during my stay, apparently with a large group, and somewhat noisy. I believe this was due to this group and not reflective of the lounge in general.

The buffet with more bistro seating is in the room next door. The lounge provides a small breakfast in the morning, with a choice of coffee, tea, juice as well as pastries and fruit. During the day, you’ll find  coffee, tea and soft drinks as well as snacks. During the evening happy hour, small cold snacks and hot food are offered, as well as wine and beer. While the selection is limited to 2-3 hot items, the quality of the food was excellent.

One night, it included beef and potatoes and it was delicious! If you are jet-lagged and/or not hungry, it’ll serve as a light meal.

I was able to alternatively have the breakfast at the ground floor restaurant with a very large buffet. While the restaurant was busy during my visit, but not really noisier than the lounge and I ate here each morning. You have a wide variety of fruits, pastries and cold cuts, as well as hot dishes including eggs and breakfast meats. It was a very nice breakfast, comparable to other 5-star hotels in Europe.

Value and Rewards: The DoubleTree by Hilton Wroclaw had a rate of $138/night during my summer high-season stay. I booked it with Hilton Honors points at 20,000 points/night (worth $80), and excellent value of points used! The DoubleTree Wroclaw is a bargain at 20,000 points, especially for Hilton Gold & Diamond members, considering the generous suite upgrade, nice lounge and great breakfast.
It’s good value at the cash rate, too, but compare carefully to other comparable hotels in town as events and groups can hike rates.

Bottomline: The DoubleTree by Hilton Wroclaw offers beautiful, modern rooms, friendly service, a great breakfast buffet and nice pool and wellness area in easy walking distance from Wroclaw’s Old Town. As a Hilton Honors member I was treated very well, with a generous upgrade and access to the nice lounge. It’s great value on Hilton Honors award stays and a good choice to explore Wroclaw – I wouldn’t hesitate to book again! You can find current prices here!
