“Enjoyable stay”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

Myself and a small party of teacher colleagues stayed at the Hotel Wielopole for three nights at the beginning of April.
The hotel is in an excellent location, just a few minutes’ walk to the Krakow’s main square and about 10 minutes to the Jewish area of Kazimierz.
The rooms are small but perfectly adequate for a short city-break.
They were spotlessly clean and the beds comfortable.
The rooms also included a safe and coffee/tea making facilities, although coffee/tea was not replenished every day. Ask at reception if you want more.
There was no milk for the coffee/tea, but there’s a very good supermarket 2 minutes walk away.
Breakfast was a typical continental style with a good selection of cereals, meats and cheeses.
The cellar breakfast room doubles up for the evening bar, but this closes quite early.
The main plus of the hotel are the staff.
From the outset nothing was too much trouble for them.
I e-mailed them several times prior to our group visit.
They organised the airport taxi transfers for me, our trip to Auschwitz-Birkenau, and also a last minute visit to the salt mines for four of our group.
An enjoyable three day stay.
We would certainly book the Hotel Wielopole again.

Room Tip: Front rooms can be a bit noisy at times (facing street)

To sum up my impressions about this hotel, i only have to write one sentence: It's good value for money, but not because it is so great, but because it is quiet okay and not very pricey.

In detail:

Location: The hotel is in a good location, not to far from the main market square (5 minutes by foot) and pretty well connected by the tram system. It is located in a not so busy street, but if you like to sleep with an open window, it might get a bit loud because of the usual street noise (which you don't have to, because the rooms have aircon).

Rooms: The hotel has a small reception area, a lift (very small) and a breakfast area in the basement. We had a deluxe room in 2nd floor and a superior room in the 4th floor. I will mainly make comments on the deluxe room and only compare them were necessary.

The hotel promotes the deluxe room as followed: It has more room, a good view, softer towels (!) and more toiletteries. Well, the last one is probably true. It had some soaps, shower gels, a toothbrush and even some one-time-use slippers. But, the towels had holes in em and were really everything but soft. The better view meant, we could have a look at the holiday in entrance and not at some backyards (superior room). The room itself was also not too roomy. It had a sofa, which was a nice touch compared to the superior room, but it was not actually roomy. On the contrary, it felt a bit cramped. For instance, as we had to single beds, one of the chairs was located between the window and my bed. But because the room was so small, i had no possibility to reach the chair, but to climb over my bed to get there. The beds were quite smallish (maybe 90 cm in width) and a bit too soft for my liking, which meant i would wake up several times a night. But all in all, i liked the interior of the room, which had some classy style and was put well together.

The bathroom was not to big either, but adequate. I had a problem with the heat of the water on the second day, which can only be described as luke warm at best (the other room had the same problem that day). Though the other days, the water temperature was quiet fine.

The first night we received two bottles of water, which were not replenished the next night. They also had a water heater and some tea in the room (also an empty fridge), which was complimentary.

The cleaning seemed to be done in a hurry, i never had the feeling that the room was exactly made up throughly, but more like a bit hush hush.

The point were the hotel really excelled was the nice and friendly staff at the reception. Apart from one exception, every single staff member was professional, friendly and willing to help. I found them to be very welcoming, which is something i can unfortunately not say about the breakfast staff, which always occurred a bit disinterested or bothered to me. Saying that, i also have to add, that the breakfast was quit fine. It had a decent variety and also an acceptable quality for most of offered eatings (though the coffee was of filter style).

Overall, i must say i was very pleased with the value for money ratio of the hotel. Sure, it has it fair share of problems or shortcomings, but i enjoyed my stay and i don't see the point to pay double as much to stay at the Holiday Inn next door, for a marginally improved offering.

So if you look for a good 3 star hotel in the old town, you'll not make a great, but certainly a good choice. But go for the deluxe room if possible, as it was much brighter and because of this more comforting, than the superior room.

Room Tip: Choose a deluxe room. A bit more space and much brighter (two windows).

Stayed in this cosy, quiet hotel last October as a group and have to say it was absolutely fantastic. The staff,rooms,food,even though we only had breakfast was first class. The only reason I am not giving 5 stars is there was no music in bar at night and no real bar service at night, just a night cap and chit chat among guests would be nice but I still would return as would all of my 20 friends that stayed there. It is very central and yet quiet at night for a sleep. Hopefully will return soon.

Stayed at the Wielopole in February and thought it very good value for money. The breakfast wasn't great but it was enough to start your day.
The restaurant / bar was a little cavernous but fit for purpose as long as you didn't want to spend an evening in it.
The staff were very polite and friendly and very helpful. The position of the hotel is very good for those who don't or can't walk too far.
Great city, great people and can't wait to return.

My wife, myself and her aunt stayed for 1 night in December 2011 at either end of a 3 night Christmas stay in Zakopane. I was very impressed with Hotel Wielopole. The rooms were a good size,
very clean, the beds were very comfortable and the breakfast was great, lots to eat and a good variety of food. I found Hotel Wielopole to be very good value. It was very easy to find walking from the Train station and was a short walk from the main square. We will definitely stay there on our next visit to Krakow! This hotel is a little gem!

We stayed at the Wielopole hotel from Feb 19th-23rd and really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is in a great area, 5mins walk to the main square and 10mins walk from Kazimierz. The rooms are small but comfortable with comfortable beds and a good shower, breakfast was typical of Polish hotels and we always found plenty to eat. The reception staff where always friendly and happy to help with any questions you have and are a credit to the hotel, when we return to Krakow (and we will) we will look to book at the Wielopole hotel again.
