“Excellent Accommodation”
Reviewed 19 August 2007

Lovely clean, large rooms with superb en suite. Staff very friendly and helpful. first class facilities, would definately return.

Krakow market square has the wow factor - especially at night. We stayed Monday to Friday, suspect it could be rowdy with drunken Brits on a weekend.

Did the usual trips, but went to Auschwitz on the train and saved quite a bit on the cost of organized trips (22Zl compared to 60ZL)

If going to the salt mine make sure you go early at this time of year (August). We arrived at 1130 and were advised that the tour could take upto 5 hours (could believe it looking at the length of the queue) so didn't stay.

All in all loved central Krakow, food and drink very cheap!!! Would go back again.

We stayed in the Abella Guest Rooms after looking on the internet for a place to stay in the centre of Krakow.
The owners Slyvia and her husband were very nice and very helpful.They spoke very good English and nothing was a problem. They assisted us in a trip to Auschwitz which was fantatstic.We were picked up and dropped off at the hotel.
There was no air conditioning in the rooms but we survived ok. Abella is situated in a good position to the market square, about 5-10 minute walk. Krakow was very nice but we were continually hounded by beggers and tramps,especially when eating around the square at night. On more than one occasion when we refused to give them money, they became verbally aggressive.So beware of these people, you may think you can spot them a mile off but believe me they blend right in.

Would go back to Abella Guest Rooms, they were very clean and couldnt do enough for you.

  • Liked — Very clean and spacious
  • Disliked — No air conditioning (Sorry we are spolit!!!)

Modern apartment in older building 10 minute walk into the centre of Krakow. Apartment I stayed in was on third floor next to other company offices located in the same building.The Abella reception was on first floor. The apartment was one bed,separate bathroom with good shower with kitchen/diner/lounge combined.Everything was new and worked well. Staff who ran reception spoke good English and were friendly and helpful.At the time I stayed there was some noise during daytime ours from adjacent apartments being renovated. I followed recommendations and dined at The Florianska and Aqua e Vino and was not disappointed.Taxi to the airport cost me 40 sloty. I suprisingly got a better exhange rate to the pound in the many exhchange booths in the city 5.56 than I did from Travelex 5.29.Krakow was a good city to explore and prices were cheap.For the smokers in particular cigarettes were particulary cheap 6.70 to 7.40 for a packet of English brands[remember you can only bring 200 back to Britain] and good branded Polish beer at a pound a pint.Coffee was a pound a cup in cafes and the cakes were excellent and very cheap as well.Not a good place for the lungs,liver or waistline I fear.Plenty of archectural, cultural and musical treats however for the more artistically minded if thats your thing.

  • Liked — Independent self contained.An apartment not a hotel experince.
  • Disliked — Noise during day but this probably isnt an ongoing issue.

Reviewed 16 April 2007

We stayed in Abella Guest Rooms for 4 days just after Easter. The hotel had already contacted me prior to arrival to arrange an airport transfer.
On arrival we were shown to our room, the photo's online had already impressed me. However the newly refurbished room exceeded my expectations. The bathroom was luxurious and the shower was one of the best ways to get rid of those vodka hangovers!!
The team of staff couldn't have been nicer and were very helpful with
helping us to find our way around and book day trips. They arranged
a day trip to Auschwitz for us. We were collected from the Hotel and taken there,with another couple, in a people carrier. The driver was really lovely and showed us lots of the sights en-route to Auschwitz. On arrival at Auschwitz 1, the driver then hooked us up with an English speaking guide.
In conclusion, I would highly recommend Abella Guest Rooms to anyone visiting Krakow. Many thanks to Sylvia and the team for making our stay a very pleasant one indeed!!!
