A hotel straight from the Communist era it seems, but not without its charms. You are probably going to be there on one of the thousands of cheap weekends to Kraków which proliferate on the GrouponTravelZooGoGroupie sites, and as such let me say that you are getting what you pay for. No more, but no less either. The staff are... More

80's roll back....hay I grow up in the 80's so loved it. Clean friendly and a nice relaxing massage in the spa. Good value for your money, Tesco handy across the road and tram stop just outside. The taxis are cheap in the area around 25-30 pl from old town to hotel. Booked a tour guide in the electric motorised... More

Was bit worried about hotel being bit outta way but it wasnt really and taxis were few pound tops into square and quarter at night. The hotel is as others say bit dated in colour etc but have to say very clean and the guys on reception desk are excellent, couldnt ask for better and extremely polite. I would have... More

The hotel is dated BUT was spotlessly clean, warm and ideally located for the teams in to the city. Breakfast was OK, it's continental so mostly cheeses meat pickles etc. We had lovely boiled eggs on toast most mornings. Staff were helpful and explained how the trams worked with tickets etc. Krakow is an absolutely beautiful place, highly recommended.

...and only got as far as check-in. Arrived at 10:25pm and was waiting behind another guest complaining about some issues with bookings. I heard that the first night he arrived they didn't have a room for him so he had to go to another hotel and then come back the next day. After about 25mins later he said to receptionist... More

We stayed just 2 nights on a voucher deal. As we arrived late at night we took a taxi to the hotel which cost 18 euros-name/number can be given. We agree with the sentiments that the hotel needed upgrading, BUT it was clean and comfortable, especially for the price paid. The TVs definitely need upgrading but we had music on... More

We strongly advise against anyone using this hotel. Staff surly and decor very drab and dated. Some of restaurant china clean but so old it was stained. Hotel constantly overheated and air con not working efficiently. Our beds were not made but simply covered over after a night's sleep. WiFi very spasmodic in bedroom. No tea or coffee making facilities... More

We arrived and to be honest the reception area was a little dim but that's being a little picky. The staff were friendly but did not volunteer too much such as bus or tram info. To be fair I didn't ask, only about taxis. The room was spacious and clean and as I'm not like the folks on 4 in... More

This hotel came as part of a 5 day trip deal to the city. It has all you need for a city break. Yes I agree about the previous comments about being dated but it was clean and the rooms were well maintained. Food was ok....not quite to my taste but everything was well cooked and there was a good... More
