0.8km from Stockholm Kitchen&BarAt approximately €41 for a night in a single room I felt the Focus Hotel was excellent value, all things considered. It loses one star out of 5 from me for not having proper soap and shampoo in the rooms, instead opting for liquid soap in wall dispensers, and for its location, which was convenient and within 2 kilometres of most of Szczecin's main attractions, but I still felt there wasn't much of interest within the immediate vicinity beyond Wały Chrobrego. The nearest bike share station (registration is required to use these) was located 270m away on ul. Zygmunta Starego, and whilst it's a bit of a walk away, I recommend getting a doughnut (if you can resist not getting more!) at Nasza Pączkarnia on ul. Wyszyńskiego, just up from the intersection with Nabrzeże Wieleckie. My room was well appointed and had contemporary furnishings, including a flat screen TV. The hotel had a lift which was a big plus, and service at reception was friendly and efficient. There appeared to be at least one German tour group staying at the hotel during my stay, and some of the guests would congregate at the front entrance to smoke cigarettes, but the place was generally quiet and the clientele didn't cause any problems. I'm not sure if breakfast was included in every tariff but I was told at check-in that I could have breakfast in the morning, and nobody checked me or asked for a room number when I attended. On that note, I felt the breakfast was definitely one of the best I've seen at a 3 star hotel in my travels. Whilst the whole breakfast area was busy, I managed to find a table. The selection of food was such that I'm sure anyone could find something they liked, and naturally there was tea, coffee and juice, as well as pre-prepared sandwiches that guests could take "for the road" if they were in a hurry. I've noticed some of the nightly tariffs at this hotel can get a little expensive, but for the price I paid I was more than happy with the offer.
