... were dropped in from doors overhead. Corpses were removed by other prisoners who lived in isolation from prisoners in the rest of the camp. The prisoners who were sent to work/stay at the camp spent all day, every day working. They were only allowed to use the bathroom twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. They began and ended their day doing a role call, standing in the hot sun, while each person was counted to ensure each person leaving, returned ...
A lot, a lot, a lot happened yesterday. I plan to write in depth later today. It's a gorgeous sunny day out today, and I'm seeing Auschwitz with a tour at 12pm. For breakfast I had some delicious cheese and onion pierogis at the little Christmas market on the main square. I've made some friends at the hostel, and we had a great time at the clubs last night. More to ...
... very nice views of the countryside. We were dropped off at the starting point and began our adventure. We started the 9km work to morskie oko, a lake the you must either walk to or get a ride in a horse and cart. It was mostly just on a road, but no cars were permitted. It was very cold especuly walking in the shade but there was a bit of sunshine to keep us going! There was a few short cuts through the bush that we took until we reached our destination. The sun was out and ...
... children chasing pigeons, the tourists snapping pictures, the horse drawn carriages and all the other stuff wlll make your head spin. It's like being in a kaleidoscope that is spinning full force. We signed up for a walking tour and were able to learn a lot about the city. We were also able to learn that we needed a lot more time to keep exploring.
I've Got The Laundromat Blues...
Since the washer looked like it had seen better ...
We were up and at it by 4:30am on Saturday to board the bus to Krakow. Given that we have been sleeping in till 9:00am most morning this was a bit of a struggle plus the fact that Steve and I are not morning people and can't function without a morning coffee. We arrived in Krakow at 1:30pm just in time for the start of the Tour de France. We checked into our apartment and Steve set up the coverage on all his devices but even with all the excitement he couldn't stay ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsCampanile Krakow
Campanile proved to be a good value for money. We felt welcome from the moment when we walked in to the hotel reception. No issues, no hassle, big and pleasant room. If I have to point out what I was unhappy with, it must be plastic coffee cups. In my opinion, you either provide a reasonable facility for coffee drinkers, or you don't bother at all. Shower curtain looked very grey and tired too.

Historical Traveler Reviews Campanile Krakow
Top hotel for City Break
Good hotel in centre close to all atractions.
Clean and staff very helpfull
Paid 70 Euro per night bed and breakfast for a twin room
Breakfast good and typically continental
I would recomend this holel as a very good base to explor the city but use anothe holel if you want other amenaties
Excellent Budget Hotel
I normally would have stayed at the Pollera but as it was a budget trip I decided to try the Campanille and was very impressed. As I had a hire car I was able to park in the car park under the building. Rooms are basic but very well equipped and quite spacious and ditto for the bathroom. Hotel itself is clean and the public areas well laid out. Staff were extremely polite and helpful when needed. Honestly cannot fault it at all. Well located about 5 minutes walk from the Stary Rynek and on the edge of the planty. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
Cracking in Krakow
As all six of us were first time visitors to Krakow, we were pleased to find a hotel so close to the main square and the city centre. Initial impressions were quite good, the guy on reception was pleasant enough but wasnt the quickest in the world.
That aside, the rooms were basic but clean, bathroom and showers were fine. The only downside would be the lack of wardrobe space in the twin rooms, and the size of the single beds - very small ! We stayed in 305 so our room was the yards of adjacent buildings, but opposite rooms had a great view over the city.
I`d definately recommend this for travellers, for the price we paid we were more than pleased.
We had a brilliant 5 days in Krakow, staying in the Campanile. Our room had a fabulous view over the Planty. The hotel is ideally situated being very near the main square. It was very clean, nice comfy beds, tea and coffee facilities in our room, wonderful breakfasts and very friendly staff. Recommended!!!
A city full of interest
We decided to spend 4 days in Krakow and booked into the Campanile on the recommendation of our daughter who had stayed there previously. It is in an excellent position being near the main square on one side and overlooking the park on the other side. The rooms were clean, and spacious, the staff were pleasant and spoke English and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend the hotel. Krakow is a fascinating town, and it is well worth taking one of the "golf buggy" tours which are very inexpensive. The main square is surrounded by restaurants where you can eat outside and watch the world go by. A lovely break
Die Lage ist ausgezeichnet, zu Fuß nur vier Minuten von Rynek Glówny entfernt. Die Zimmer sind recht einfach, es gibt sehr wenig Platz, um seine Kleidung aufzuhängen. Das Bad war in Ordnung, obwohl das Toilettenpapier schrecklich war! Konnte die Klimaanlage nicht wirklich zum Funktionieren bringen. Die Straße vorm Hotel schien sehr laut zu sein, bis gegen vier Uhr morgens wurde sehr laut geschrien bis die Bahnen wieder fuhren! Frühstück war im Preis inbegriffen, das schien ein guter Wert zu sein. Es gab keine Fernsehsender in englischer Sprache (2*) trotz der Tatsache, dass BBC in der Liste aufgeführt war, aber das hatte ich auch in einem 4-Sterne Hotel in Krakau im letzten Jahr. Die Preise mögen hoch gewesen sein weil der Papst ein paar Tage zuvor in Krakau gewesen war. Es ist in Ordnung für ein einfaches Hotel in ausgezeichneter Lage, aber es kann draußen schon mal laut werden.
Tolle Lage, tolles Preis/Leistungsverhältnis ... da kann man nicht meckern
War hier das Wochenende über und kann an diesem Hotel nichts auszusetzen finden. Es ist ein Hotel im IBIS Stil, guter Wert, gute Lage und allem was man in Krakau braucht. Zum Marktplatz sind es ein paar Minuten aber es gibt viele Bars/Restaurants entlang des Wegs in die man einkehren kann. Der Bahnhof ist fünf Minuten entfernt. Andere Sehenswürdigkeiten wie Wawel und das jüdische Viertel kann man zu Fuß leicht erreichen. Ausgezeichnetes Hotel und ich kann es nicht genug empfehlen.
The location is excellent, only a four minute walk from the Rynek Glówny. The rooms are fairly basic, with very little hanging space for clothes. Bathroom was fine, tho' the loo paper was pretty horrible! Couldn't get the air con/heating to work very well. The street outside seemed very noisy, with a lot of shouting going on 'til about 4 am, when the trams seemed to start up! Breakfast was included in our rate, but seemed good value.
Great location, great value... what is not to like
Just stayed here for the weekend and i really cannot fault this hotel. It is very much an IBIS style hotel, good value, good location and everything you need in Krakow.
It is a few minutes walk to the main square but there are plenty of bars/restaurants along the way to entertain you. Train station is a 5 minutes walk away. Other attractions such as Wawel and Jewish district are within easy walking distance.
Excellent hotel and i cannot recommend it enough.
Excellent Location Near Old Town
My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Campanile with a group and found it excellently located just outside of the old town in a park like setting. Rooms were clean and staff was very helpful.
