Orient Hotel
Ranked #189 of 264 Hotels in Krakow
Reviewed 18 October 2006

The Hotel Orient is a 4* hotel sited on the border of Krakow and the suburb of Nowa Huta, and is about 5 miles from the city centre. Its location in the grounds of an office complex is ususual, but don't let that put you off. The hotel was built in 2000, and contains a swimming pool and Jacuzzi, as well as a fitness suite and restaurant. Free internet access is available from the "Business Centre", a small office just off Reception.

The rooms are spacious, and contain a well equipped bathroom with a shower. Rooms are air conditioned, plus opening windows.

The breakfast is a substantial buffet, and, on request, the staff will prepare fried eggs etc for guests. A wide choice of cereals, fruits and breads is supplied, plus the usual breakfast extras. Dining in the hotel each evening, our bill for 6 meals, including drinks, came to £37.50.

A bus route pases in front of the hotel site, or a 10 minute walk takes guests to a main tram route, Tram 1 takes you direct to the city centre. A 48 hour tram and bus pass costs a mere 18.5 Zloty, about £3.50.

The Hotel Orient would not suit everyone, But for a traveller wanting to enjoy the delights of Krakow on a budget it is hard to beat. Booking with a UK travel agent, our flights and 3 nights B&B accommodation at the Hotel Orient cost just £99!

The Orient is a nice clean modern hotel with a lovely swimming pool. The bedroom and bathroom were both spacious. Breakfast was excellent with bread, cold meats, cheeses, pastries, eggs & smoked salmon all on offer. The situation in Nowa Huta in a business/residential area isn't in the centre of Krakow but seems a very safe area. Tram stop Centralna is about 5 mins walk from the hotel & it takes about 5-10 mins to get into the centre of town from there. Much more fun than a taxi!

The Orient hotel is a new hotel so could not complain about the standard of the rooms or facilities. It is rather bizzarely situated in the grounds of a factory which i think is dissused. The public transport is supposed to be a bus service but it is infrequent and takes forever to get into the centre. The hotel is approx 7 miles out of Krakow so you have to take a taxi. Taxis were plentiful and cheap - approx £6 but this all adds up and you cannot pop in and out of the hotel during the day. The hotel seemed to rely upon coach trips and families with cars - swimming pool is a big plus on that front. For the independent traveller the hotel is to far out and not seved by reliable public transport. The barking dogs at night were dreadful.

I would recommend that you avoid this hotel at all costs. It is located in an industrial estate which is very hard to find. We we got there they had overbooked the hotel and gave our room away and sent us to the Hotel Logos in Krakow city centre, which was not of the same standard.

I would give this full marks simply because of it's value for money. Myself and my girlfriend paid around £60 for two nigts with a massive breakfast included. Rooms are very decent and the facilities (swimming pool, jacuzzi, late bar) were excellent as were the friendly staff.

The only drawback is that it is not in central Krakow, however taxi's in and out are so cheap this does not matter.
