The intriguingly titled Rezydencja Cleopatra is indeed named after Cleopatra, the Egyptian Queen. Rezydencja Cleopatra is well located – right in the heart of the Old Town – thus making it a great option for those who like a late-night stroll or tipple in the poky old streets of Lublin. The hotel is attached to a restaurant, so great food is also served downstairs. Rooms are unexpectedly arty looking, and breakfast is included in the price. Wi-Fi is free throughout, and the guest house also has some seating near the stairs outside the rooms. The restaurant also acts as a bar, so it is perfect for those not needing an early night’s sleep.
