Best places for a tight budget

Cream of the crop
If you are looking for a vibrant, stylish and an independent accommodation then look no further than two hotels in Katowice where you can relax after long day and indulge in luxury. The two luxury hotels offer a range of facilities that will satisfy your needs. The Monopol Hotel offers great facilities available to all guests. From the original 1903 mosaic floor in the lobby to the exquisite walnut furniture, Monopol gets everything right and more. Taking the occasional risk such as covering the walls in photographs of abandoned factories, the hotel shows a confidence that most others wouldn't dare. The rooms are individually designed and make you want to stay in them for much longer than just a night, with facilities including a fabulous swimming pool and fitness centre in the basement.
The Angelo Hotel Katowice is a fantastic addition to Katowice's accommodation offerings. Angelo does just that with a distinctive and appealing colour palette of black, white, red and yellow, and modern suites and rooms which - with the substitution of the bed for a couple drafting tables - could competently pass for the office of an architectural firm. Inside them you will find amenities such as DVD players and flat screen TVs.
To visit in Katowice
When choosing your hotel in Katowice, you need to think what you would like to do and whether you mind commuting in case you are in the outskirts of the city.
Katowice and the surrounding areas possess a startling number of recreational areas and leisure opportunities. Though known more for its industrial 'attractions' and poor air quality than its nature conservation record, Silesia has some of the largest urban green spaces, not only in Poland, but in Europe. ChorzÃ³w's Silesia Park is a veritable leisure section's worth of activities in itself, and though you are tempted to stop there, it's only one of an incredible four parks in the immediate area that weigh in at an impressively over-sized 70+ hectares. From horse-riding to star-gazing, from climbing to flying, Silesia offers plenty of opportunities for you to get up, get out and get busy.
