Upon entry to the hotel I noticed it to be quite fancy, while its surrounding architecture wasn't quite what I'd call, 'up to date', the hotel itself seemed quite advanced which was a pleasant welcome to the town.
The front door is automatic, I enjoyed not having to struggle lifting such a heavy door everyday but also that it was quick and simple so a door man wouldn't have to stand there all day waiting for someone to walk through.
However the only problem was that, I was unaware that it was automatic when I first approached it, i ran up to it and it swung open, almost knocking me over.
Still the hotel was nice, I was greeted nicely by the staff, took the key card up the elevator to the room, once entering it I found that it was beyond what I'd expected.
Clean, organised, supplementary and ultimately welcoming, more than I can say about my last hotel.
It came with cupboards, chairs, two beds which me and my father separately slept in, a fancy tv with channels from across Europe, and a bathroom.
Except this was quite a large one, even larger than my own, a width of four meters and a length of roughly six, toilet, shower, sinks, bath and mirror, this kept me well satisfied.
We also had a small fridge, my father wanted to make tea but didn't have enough milk, however we found that the hotel staff gladly came to our room to give us the milk, we even found bathroom gowns and slippers.
The shower and bath worked well and were very relaxing, they weren't old or irritating, it never went too hot and there were plenty of towels provided.
I also found that we needed a new plug since we were in Poland and couldn't use our English plugs, the staff also provided those.
There was complimentary breakfast served every morning, however the food was mostly the same each day, with small additions added each morning, it was disappointing that there was so little to choose from, or at least, so little that I liked.
Also one morning after having some breakfast I went on a trip and felt sick, that was probably due to the bumpy van ride, but still I suspected the food had something to do with it.
However it was still enjoyable, also there was a gym downstairs, while it was good exercise, it was small and had limited choices as to what I could use.
Nevertheless it was nice that it was there, also there were two computers on the ground level, free to use for anyone, it was nice to have something to do if you were waiting for a taxi or van.
All members of staff I encountered were kind and helpful, and while there were some mishaps, none that would suggest they were incompetent, ultimately, I enjoyed my stay, I highly recommend the hotel, and any complaints I have are nit picks, however they should still be taken into account.
Thus I enjoyed my stay, I suggest you go here if you visit Krakow, I'm sure that there are many other great hotels, but I liked this one a lot, you won't be disappointed.
