“Great hotel and location”
Reviewed 29 July 2011

This hotel was great since its walking distance to the old city. All in walking distance to the train station. We took the train from Warsaw to Krakow. A 3 hour trip. I was advise by the hotel to walk it if you don't have problems or take a taxi. It was the right thing to do for us and easy. Although, next time will have everything written out in Polish so get easier directions. Did not do there breakfast buffet but it did look yummy.

Great location -- easy walk to the Cloth Market Square. Rooms are dated but clean and roomy. We weren't able to get connecting rooms as requested but they never promised. I had read other reviews that said the concierge was very helpful. We rarely found the concierge at the desk. We did, however, get a great restaurant recommendation from the bartender and waitress in the lounge. Thank you Gosha!

The hotel is situated a five minute walk to the Market Sqaure. A great little bar for a few cheeky drinks before or after dinner. Breakfast is fairly reasonable at roughly €10 for a full buffet with a variety of hot and cold foods. Rooms were good but it did smell musky. Noticeable enough to be uncomfortable. Towels also smelt like harsh bleach and there were limited English channels available. Aside from that, there's not much to fault. I stayed for business but would have happily stayed here for leisure too. Room rate was about €100 a night without breakfast.

Stayed here for four nights in June on a weekend break to Krakow. Very helpful staff, clean and comfortable. Not sure it's 5 star but definitely a 4 star. Krakow superb value. Don't use "See Krakow" to visit Auschwitz as they didn't give us the time there they said they would. Krakow is superb and this hotel is 5 min walk from main square. Superb. Would stay here again.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights from 10 - 14 July 2011 and I must say that everything was perfect.

The hotel staff were lovely and spoke good English. We arrived early - at 11am but our room was still ready for us which was great. We stayed in an Executive room overlooking the front courtyard and it was gorgeous. Dark wood furniture, a 6 foot bed with the most comfortable mattress and pillows that I've ever had in a hotel - so comfy I didn't want to go home! Air conditioning, flat screen TV (only 5 English channels) fridge/mini bar, complimentary tea/coffee and bottled water. Plenty of hanging space and drawers for clothes. Plus a safe and ironing board - all very useful. Best bit though was free internet in the room. Cable provided to use with your own laptop, which we loved (even on holiday it's hard to be away from your email!) Bathroom was clean and had bath & shower, hairdryer and complimentary toiletries.

The hotel is in a great location in a side street off the Planty gardens, only a 4 minute walk from the main old town square. As it's so central it means you can go back to the hotel for lunch, to freshen up or even a nap before continuing your sightseeing.

The only downside to this hotel is no swimming pool, hot tub or sauna, but this is typical of many city centre hotels. There is a gym although the amount of walking you do in Krakow is more than enough exercise. I didn't eat in the hotel (breakfast was 70 Zlotys = £18!) but there are plenty of places that you can go which are only a few minutes away for a fraction of the price. Overall I would highly recommend this hotel and definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: An Executive room is definitely worth the extra money

We recently returned from a 4 day break in Krakow. I chose Holiday Inn as it was our first time in Poland, and felt the reputation of such a hotel group gave a better chance of quality accommodation.
We weren't dissapointed, the hotel location was excellent, the lobby was clean welcoming and the staff superb. Breakfast was taken downstairs in the restaurant, and I must say every mornings meal was an absolute pleasure. The American buffet breakfast that came with our room was a joy. All food was to a high standard as expected, the staff couldn't do more to ensure the meal started our day with a smile.
We will be returning to Krakow in the future, and deffinately will be using Holiday Inn as our comfy base.

Room Tip: We had a standard room but on the 3rd floor which is excecutive level, and to us it was one of the q...

Stayed in this hotel for 5 nights at the end of June 2011. Partner has stayed in Holiday Inns in the past when he worked abroad but, in his opinion, this place was in a different league. Do take time to read the complimentary "Krakow in Your Pocket" booklet they give you at reception when you check in - I'm not usually into guide books but the contents of this one were fascinating and very helpful - Tips on everything from restaurants, things to see, excursions, traditions, laws etc e.g. Do not chance crossing a road when the red man is showing (even if there's no traffic) as this will attract an on the spot fine - even for tourists! We also picked up a free street map in the taxi - this too was invaluable throughout our stay. Anyway back to the hotel : - Great location, turning right out of the hotel, it's only approx 4-5 minutes easy walk into Rynek Glowny (the main square in Krakow where everything is happening). Turning left from the hotel and it's only a 15 minute walk to the old jewish quarter, Kazimierz . Rooms comfortable - only problem we had was that it did get a little warm during the night even with the aircon on full tilt. Breakfasts were self service with a good supply of hot and cold choices and a fantastic choice of teas - everything from Earl Gray, Assam, Peppermint, Rosehip, Green etc. Contrary to a previous review, I'd say, if you're from the UK, you'll find the bar prices very reasonable Rooms were serviced to a high standard every day Would not hesitate to return here.
