Booked this hotel over the internet roughly a month in advance and got a good price for the night, a little over £30, which isn't too bad considering its location. It is roughly 300 metres from the Galeria Krakowska shopping centre, which itself backs on to the main railway station. The main square or rynek is also a 10 to 15 minute walk away.
The staff as always are friendly and helpful. Breakfast was the standard fayre of eggs, sausage, bacon, cold meats and cheeses, fruits and cereals. Teas, coffee and fruit juices. (Eat/drink all you want) This came at an extra cost of either 32zl(£6.50ish) if prebooked or 36zl if not.
I personally did not go a lot on the restaurant menu. I just wish some of these hotels would stop trying to serve gourmet type meals and go for the basics or traditional type meals, I mean wok fried chicken with honey and nuts, really!
The room itself seemed to me to be a little smaller than the rooms in the other Ibis in Krakow, but that is just being finicky. Not so good was the shower which couldn't make up its mind whether to run hot, cold, or the temperature which I wanted. (By the way I did 2 stays at the hotel, one on arriving in Poland and the other when leaving, so had 2 different rooms and the showering was the same in both).
Yes I would stay there again, since all in all the shower was the only thing that was an annoyance. Meals you can go anywhere for, and as I have previously said the hotels location and staff make up for the rest.
