“Nice and clean, but noisy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2011

The room itself was nice and very clean. The shower was built directly into the bathroom, and the water just falls onto the bathroom floor.
The walls of the rooms were very thin, and for an hour after I went to sleep, I heard loud German music and singing.
There was free internet, and free street parking on weekends.
The hotel restaurant was very empty when I went for dinner, and there are no English menus. However, the waiter was friendly and translated everything to English. Turns out that the food was the best I had in 10 days in Central Europe.
Make sure you know where you are going if you are driving to the hotel, since there are lots of one way streets in Gorlitz.

We LOVED Gorlitz and the Sorat hotel!! We had two rooms- a double and a huge superior room for three people. The hotel is located on a pretty square in the historic area and only a five minute walk to the Polish border with Zgorzelec. Our room had very high ceilings and huge windows overlooking the square. The bed was very comfortable and breakfast was fabulous (and included in the rate of 99 Euros!!!). I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Gorlitz.

This hotel in Görlitz is Absolutely Fabulous!! I stayed there for two nights in mid-july in a double room booked through hotels.com for 80 euro. The hotel is in the absolute center of Görlitz with clean big rooms, superb staff, awesome breakfast, minibar, 40 channels on the tv and everything else you want and need!! And it was quite and nice at the hotel. I will stay there again as soon as possible! They really cared for you at the hotel.
Nothing but the best!! Stay there!!!

We spent one night in Gorlitz at the Hotel Sorat. It's a bit of a hike from the train station, but at least you have the opportunity to see a typical East German high street on the way. The Sorat is in a rehabbed older building and is clean and comfortable, though nothing special. Most of their clientele is German (and mainly male business travelers). Not surprisingly, the buffet breakfast features a lot of meat and cheese and little in the way of fruits or veggies. The staff is very friendly and tries to be helpful, though lack of English is a bit of a bar. The Sorat is on a plaza abutting the main historic sections of the city, so it's an easy walk to anything you want to see.

For the most part, we wandered the streets of the town center--fortunately for Gorlitz the end of Silesia transformed their proud city into a backwater. So, it wasn't worth bombing in either World War and wasn't turned into a socialist worker's paradise of anonymous concrete apartments under the GDR. Since 1989, lots of young entrepreneurs have started rehabbing the architectually fabulous buildings into cafes, shops, bars, and probably soon boutique hotels. See it before the tour busses arrive and we all love it to death! (Sadly, I heard that Rick Steves is adding it to his Germany book. Start the countdown to tourists overrunning the place...) By the way, you can walk across a small bridge into Poland where the other half of the city ended up after boundaries were redrawn after the war. Same great architecture, bu largely unrehabbed unless you count gutting the bottom floor for a cigarette shop or a money changing business.
