Hotel’s in Bolesławiec, Poland

Before Christmas a few friends and I headed out to the Polish pottery mecca, Boleslawiec, Poland do a girls weekend trip of shopping.

Since it was an overnight trip that meant we needed to stay at a hotel.  I just want to give a quick shout out to the hotel we stayed at, Villa Ambasada.  I am going to be honest I usually do hotel reviews if I am compensated some how but I am doing this one because this hotel is that great and they did a HUGE favor for me while I was there and they(he) wouldn’t take any compensation in return, so this is the best way I can say “THANK YOU” for helping me!

When we got there is was dark and when we left, well my mind was in other places and I did not take a picture of the outside of the hotel.  But this one is from their website.  Does not look like a neat hotel?

Looking at our room from one direction.  This side had 2 single beds and a huge closet.  The bathroom is where my friend is standing.

The inside of the room the other direction.  This room is big!  The room also had a queen size bed and a table that easy sat 4 people.  The table was nice to have so we could sit around and a quick chat at the end of the night with some tea too! (Yes, there was even tea and coffee in the room for us!)

Yes, mini bars in Poland are just like anywhere else, EXPENSIVE!

This was the breakfast that they had for us. They even cook to order eggs for us!  The was another table too with cereal options.  No lack of choices here!  We ate enough that we did not even had to stop from shopping for lunch.  Oh and the best part, breakfast was included in our price of the room!!

Is this not cute?  The tea kettle waiting for us with fresh, hot tea and the other picher is full of warm milk for your coffe.

While I am not a coffee drinker of sorts but they even have this fancy coffee maker where you can make your coffees. Looks why to high tech for me!

2 of the unique rooms where you can eat.  We loved the set up here as there is plenty of room for lots of guests to site down at one time.

Over the years of going to this area to shop, I have always stayed another hotel in town because that is where the majority of Americans stay at because the owners and most of the staff spoke English.  Well now that I have lived in Poland for quite awhile I have come to learn that we payed double compared to other hotels in the area!  CRAZY!! This hotel was half the price of what we would have paid at the other hotel!!  Oh, and guess what?  The majority of the staff we met at Villa Ambasada spoke English.  Now I am not going to name the hotel that I stayed at in the past but the rooms here are much bigger and the hotel itself is much more convenient for shopping!

Now why did I want to say “Thank you” to Villa Ambasada?  Well Sunday morning when we went to go start my car, the battery was dead.  Not just a little but completely dead! So we walked back into the hotel and ask the staff if there was a place we could call for a jump start of my battery.  Well at that moment the owner or manager not sure who he was (just a guy with a really neat cowboy hat!) said he cold give me a jump.  Well 5 minutes later, we were back on the road shopping!

So who ever is that man with a cowboy hat, THANK YOU!!!  You saved our girls weekend get-a-way!

If you happen to be going to Boleslawiec to do some Polish pottery shopping, look no further for hotel’s in Boleslawic, Poland….. this is the one to stay at!!

When you look for hotel’s what is the one thing you always make sure it has?  We are a FREE wi-fi family!!

    Thanks for all the great information. My family and I will be travelling throughout Poland this summer for a month and plan on stopping in Bolesławiec. I really appreciate the wealth of information and pictures you post on your blog.

    • Tom,

      I hope you have a good time this summer visiting! There is so much to see in Poland. If you any help planning don’t hesitate to ask!

      • Debbie (Tom's wife) says:

        Kelley, we might take you up on the offer of trip-planning advice. We have a lot of cities written into this trip, in a short time frame. We plan on doing a loop from Warsaw through Torun, Poznan, Berlin, Gorlitz, Boleslawiec, Wroclaw, Krakow and Zakopane. Since we’ve been reading your blog, Bydgoszcz sounds great, too. I have been interested in Polish pottery for a long time, and reading your blog has fanned the fire! So even though something may have to be crossed off the Great Polish Drive plan, Boleslawiec is staying on the list for sure. But then there’s the wine country near Zielona Gora, and a great old castle down south, Zamek Ksiaz… So much to see!

    I’ve read your blog for a while and just wanted to let you know how much I’ve enjoyed it. My wife and I are getting ready to start the adoption process. We’re planning on adopting from Poland and your blog has been a warm and pleasant way to get to know our child’s home country and culture. Thank you!

    • Welcome Matt!

      I have met 2 other families that have adopted from Poland. I have to say it is not the easiest but it is doable! What agency are you working with and where are in the process? We find out in the June/July time frame if we get to start the process to adopt here as that is when we find out if his job contract get renewed or not but if it does then it is time to get the process started as we have 2 children in mind already. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask!

      • Melissa says:

        I’m reading this from my room in Hotel Ambasada that I’m sharing with my two children who were adopted from Poland in 2006. The hotel is great and I will recommend it to others who travel here. Best wishes to everyone adopting from Poland!

    Hi Kelley,
    I am planning a trip to Poland with some friends for a pottery shopping trip. We are planning to go to Boleslawiec. We would like to come from May 1-4th, but can you advise me as to whether the stores will be open. We live in Hungary and May 1st is a big holiday here, I think it is in Poland too, so we were planning to arrive on the evening of the 1st, and shop on the 2nd and 3rd of May. I have tried to find information on line, but have been unsuccessful so far. What do you think? Will they be open that weekend?
    Thanks so much! I love your blog, and I love Polish Pottery!
    Jodi

    • Oh, I wish I could tell you if they would be open or not for sure. The 1st and 3rd are national holidays here in Poland. Some of the bigger ones should be open but some of the smaller ones might be closed especially the 3rd as this is their Independence Day.

      Have fun shopping!!
