This is the cheapest hotel we have ever stayed in.
We stayed for four days in september 2008.
It is a rather small hotel with a limited number of rooms. We got a large room (a corner room). The rooms (for two) have one price but different size. We know that since we travelled in a group. Our room needed cleaning in the corners and the windows needed better insulation. There was an old TV. The bathroom was ok. Basically there is a lot you would want a little better. But to the price? We have to say very very good value.
A decent breakfast was included in the price. But you have to go outside and to the building next to the Korona Hotel to get it. In the same building there is a swimming pool you can use for free.
Staff is friendly and will help you. They speak English.
Hotel situated a bit outside the centre of Krakow. But take the tram just outside the hotel or take a taxi. They are very cheap.
Krakow is a historic city. It has Europe 2.nd oldest university.
The Wawel castle lies elevated in the centre of the city. And go and see the main square in the centre of the city. According to our Polish friend, it is supposed to be the biggest square in Europe. Krakow is very interesting since it stands as it was build. It wasn't ruined at all during the second world war.
Scenes from "Schindler's List" is filmed in Krakow.
And speaking of Schindlers List - Auschwitz and Birkenau is a good hour of driving away. It is a very special experience.
Nightlife in Krakow is very nice. There are many places to go to and all sorts of music. Polish people aren't just a grey people as many would think. They know how to party.
But be warned the smoking rules are a lot more liberal than in western Europe.
If you need a good low budget hotel in Krakow, we can recommend the Korona.
