Reviewed 1 March 2012

We have just returned from a 4 day break in Krakow. this hotel is great, clean, good ammenities, very helpfull staff. The rooms were very nice and clean.
We used the restaurant on the 1st evening, the food was excellent, and in the subject of food the breakfast layout is great, you could not want for anything. There is a chinese Resaurant 100meters away, DO NOT use this, awfull service and food, should you get what you order.
The hotel is situated on a popular bus route that is well serviced and cheap 2.80 Zloties takes about 20 minutes to the centre of Krakow.
If you eat in town and want local cuisine then you will not be disappointed if you go to Wesler in the Square,fantastic food and good staff and cheap.

Myself and my girlfriend stayed at the hotel swing in early February 2012..to some it up quickly, imagine a glorified Travel lodge or Premier inn in terms of decor and facilities (in a good way) the place was immaculately clean. rooms were cleaned to a high standard everyday. staff were very friendly and more than happy to help with anything we needed.. hotel breakfast was a vast buffet of american style sausage and eggs, continental and the usual fruits,cereals and toasts. the free to use spa facilities were also a great added bonus when returning from a days sightseeing in krakow. don't be put off by the distance from krakow town centre as there are a constant supply of taxis that wait in the hotel car park and will cost between 20-25 Zloty around 4-5 english pounds. one way. overall a great hotel, everything you need for a comfortable and welcome visit to Krakow.

Quite new hotel located cca.15 minutes by bus from the centre. Reception staff very friendly and helpful. Clean, modern but simple rooms.no minibar, but free mineral water in room( was also refreshed for the next day).Altought the restaurant is a part of the meeting rooms it looks nice. Service by the dinner not 4*. Probably because of another event and not enough waiting staff. Breakfast very good. Large choice of cold & hot meals. Bar on the top floor is cozy. The service not really active. Generaly I would recommend this hotel for short term stay and for people with no high expectations.

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...
