“Ryanair of hotels”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

As expected this was a "no frills" package but it was even worse than expected. On arrival it was hard to find a parking place. Entry to the hotel by summoning a receptionist by ringing a buzzer took some time, this was followed by a long wait to check in because one poor overworked lady was answering the entry buzzer and phone, checking in guests whilst also serving at the bar! Drinks were expensive considering the setting, charging posh cocktail bar prices in a noisy scruffy bar area.
The room was very basic with scant storage area and even lacked bedside tables. It was however clean and the beds were comfortable. An early flight meant we didn't have breakfast but the dining area looked uninviting.

Room Tip: Doubt if such a thing as a "good room" is available

I have stayed on many youth hostels which would give this place a run for it's money. Stuck in the middle of an industrial estate with few, if any, local facilities. Food was atrocious and very poor value for money. Noisy, too warm, no CH.

The staff is very welcoming and helpful; good for an early airport departure. Note: shuttle service only TO the airport, not FROM, and taxi costs10℔. Twin rooms are a "family room" with a nice double bed and a fold-up cot; no table and chairs, no bed table. Wifi is free for 1 use of 30 minutes only. Bus into city takes 30-45 minutes. Not my expectation of a Travelodge.

Arrived for a one night stay and parking package prior to a short weekend break in Krakow. The bedroom was clean and comfotable but lack of toiletries disapointing and smacks of penny pinching - not even soap for hand washing was provided.... We decided to have a meal and ordered a couple of beefburgers, straightforward we thought - wrong!! After a wait of 45 minutes my wife received her order, I had to wait another 15 minutes before my burger and chips arrived. Brian the receptionist was most apologetic and offered us a drink on the house which we accepted however I felt sorry for him as he appeared to be head receptionist, waiter, barman and possibly cook; maybe some staff hadn't turned up for work? As for the food it poor and I wouldn't recommend. When we got back to our room it was cold and we couldn't get the heater to work properly and of course there is no phone to ring reception and get advice.....

We were given directions where to leave the car close to the airport however on arrival at Ingleston Park and Ride in the early morning there were only two cars in the large park and these looked abandoned! Gut feeling was not to use the park if we wanted to see the car again so time being short for our check in parking at the airport terminal was our only option. Arrived back from our 3 day holiday today to be greeted with a parking charge of £130 so be warned!

This was a very pleasant stay. Booked so that we could visit the zoo, which was really close. Beds were comfortable and the pizza was surprisingly good. Had already pre-paid for breakfast (kids eat free) which was good also. Would visit again.

I've stayed at this Travelodge many times, but I think this was the most comfortable stay - they seem to have new double beds. I miss the old style pull out sofa beds in the family rooms though, which we used to book as a double so we could use the sofa as a sofa! The hotel is about six years old now but still looks very well presented. Staff were helpful and friendly as usual. Although it is very close to the airport, even sleeping with the window open I didn't hear the planes (our room was on the back of the hotel this time - best to keep the triple glazed windows closed on the road side for a really quiet sleep). I'll be back.
