“Great value at this hotel”
Reviewed 13 November 2009

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.

Crakow is probably the most popular city to visit in Poland. Do you want to spend a lot of bucks or stay at a clean Polish hotel that was $ 25.00 per night in August 2005 when I stayed there?
Hotel Korona is just across the river-south side with a tram stop right in front that in 10-minutes will take you to the Old Town Market Square. They even have an indoor pool! This is the real-Polish-deal, where the Poles stay & don't pay a fortune like all the other foreign tourists. Yes, all the tv channels are in Polish, but you get a clean room & bath and they speak English at the reception & take all major credit cards. You even get breakfast with rolls, jam, & weiners.

As for Cracow,,, they've got all the old beautiful buildings. They've also got lots of bars! If you're a couple or single looking for fun, this is a great town! Why spend a fortune in London or Paris when you'll have a lot better time here and for a lot less money!

I suggest you visit the Cracow-life web site. This city actually ain't that big, so it's easy to get around with the trams. A lot of Poles speak English here as they have the local university and are big on theater. Especially if you are young & on a budget, you'll do much better here than any place in Western Europe.

The Old-Town Square is the center of everything. If you're an older
fart like me (54) you'll enjoy having a nice meal for two with drinks under 50 bucks and that's at the fancy places. If you're young don't worry,,, you'll find pizza & other stuff a lot cheaper!

If you're an all-nighter, check out the Propaganda Bar. They threw us out at 5:00 am! Young or old this is a great city to visit!

  • Liked — Great value price for the city with tram right out front to Old Town
  • Disliked — Small bed, soft old mattress, no English stations on TV
  • Tips/Secrets — Just explore your way around the main square - you'll find lots of people to talk to.
