The hotel was very comfortable and the service from most staff was good. New hotel, so every equipment, furniture is new. Quiet rooms, altough closing the door is noisy like everywhere. I had a huge room for my 2-nights stay. The receptionist spoke very good English. She is kind and friendly. The breakfast was excellent. The location was also great, near the Aquapark and for the fans of chinese food there was a restaurant 200 m from the hotel were they served excellent Chinese food, very cheap. I had a really good time there.
Close to the highway.
A bit far from the city center.

If you want a fantastic hotel that provides everything for a visit to Krakow then I don’t think you could get better than the Swing Hotel. From the moment we arrived to the time we left, we got nothing but first class service.

Whilst the hotel is situated to the north east of Krakow old town it is only a 15-minute bus ride (No. 152 just 200metres from the hotel) away and only costs about 60p. Next to the hotel is a huge aqua park which is probably good (didn’t have enough time this trip) and the hotel gives a discount.

We stayed there early November 2011 and had wall-to-wall sunshine (albeit nippy) every day. The room we had was very clean. The shower room had all the creature comforts necessary. The room had colour TV but the only English speaking channels were Sky News and BBC World News which was fine (didn’t stay there to watch TV).

The breakfasts were absolutely fabulous. There was something for every taste (from vegan to the full Monty English/American blow-out). We had a complete fill-up every morning that lasted until evening.

The hotel staff were very polite and extremely helpful and very pleasant. Most spoke extremely good English. Nothing was too much trouble.

To get to the hotel from the airport is easy and cheap by public transport. There are many options. Either get the free shuttle bus from the airport to the train station (you can’t miss it) and then take the train (10 Pln) to Dworzec Główny then get the 152 bus and get off at Park Wodny (3.2 Pln).

Alternatively take the 292 bus (outside and to the right of the airport main building 100 metres) and change to the 139 bus at Nowy Kleparz and ride this bus to Park Wodny. You need to buy bus tickets on the bus or you could buy a (3 day) travel card (available just opposite the arrivals hall at the Information Desk – 65 Pln) which gives unlimited bus and tram travel.

Alternatively you could buy a taxi for about 150 Pln

Have a great time – You will if you stay at the Swing Hotel

Try the Polskie Jadko restaurant on the south westish edge of the old town square for really good Polish food at very reasonable prices (it's underground, like a lot of good restaurants in Krakow)

Room Tip: There is a sort of night club on the top floor which might be noisy in peak times so maybe a room th...

It's not in the city centre but just a short taxi ride away from the historic center. Hotel facilities very good, breakfast simple but tasty. But the value was the best. one of the cheapest in this class of hotels.

The hotel is far from the city's historic side (which is what people want to see, I guess). But it's a modern building, comfortable, free wifi. It's beside the Aqua Park (one of the biggest water park in Europe).
The only bad thing for me (as a foreigner) was the breakfast: they served cabbage and picles (ugh!). But you could also find bread, jelly and other stuff.

Although Swing Hotel is not in the best location for Krakow City Cetre we chose it because it seemed to be good value for money. It takes about 15mins to get to the city centre by bus (bus stop 5mins walk from the hotel). Our excursions to Auschwitz and Wieliczka were pre-arranged and included pick up from the hotel so location didn't worry us that much. The hotel was ok but we expected a little bit more from a 4 star. I would say that the standard was comparable to Premier Inn. There was no kettle in the room and we ended up ordering cups of tea every evening only to find out at the end of the stay that hot water was free of charge. Rooms and bathrooms clean. Breakfast plentiful but same food every day. If you don't smoke don't go to Retro Club. Lots of smoke and air con not working. However I think Poland has passed a smoking ban this year so this may not be an issue anymore. It was mid September, nights were getting chilly and we were disappointed to find out that heating didn't work. Hotel close to Aqua Park, cinema and department store. Feels more suited for business than holiday. Not bad overall. I would probably try to find a hotel located close to the old town next time but would not mind going back either.
