      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Classic Krakow

      A clean, bright hotel in a very good location


      The classic hotel is wonderfully situated for exploring Krakow. It is a couple of minutes from the main square and about five minutes from the railway/bus station. It is in a relatively quiet side street and you could watch the dance school going through their routines in the building opposite. The area was comfortable to walk around at night. The room was simple but very clean, with a nice bathroom. The double bed consisted of two twins pushed together but this was fine, although the matresses were a little on the hard side. Breakfast was of the bread, cheese and cold meat variety but the coffee was good. Staff were always willing to discuss things (using very good english) and offered useful advice re site seeing. A word of advice if you plan to take any of the trips outside of the city. Make your own way using public transport. We visited the salt mine using a local bus out and a train back which resulted in the cost being half that of an organised tour. Overall this is a very good hotel to use as a base for getting out and about both during the day and at night.

      Great Value


      Hotel is in a perfect location (literally 2 minutes walk from Krakow Market Square). But, more importantly, far enough away from any street noise. Apart from the Hotel Campanise (next door), I didn't find a better located Hotel.

      Rooms & Breakfast are well worth the money and reception staff are very helpful.

      If, I was going back, I wouldn't consider any other hotel.

      Have fun on your trip.

      Great Location


      My boyfriend and I sayed at the Hotel Classic for 4 nights in June. It's a lovely little hotel and in a great location, less than 5 minutes walk from the main market square.

      The room was basic but very big, and spotlessly clean. The bathroom was brand new and had a beautiful walk-in shower. The breakfast was good also.

      We booked the Auschwitz excursion at the front desk and it was well worth the money. Krakow is a beautiful city and well worth a visit.

      Although I have voted the hotel avergae I would say it is well above average for an eastern european hotel.

      Great hotel and fantastic location


      I was not expecting much from a three star hotel, but this one was great - new and spotlessly clean.

      I e-mailed ahead of arriving and my message was returned instantly. I saw on the hotel's website that it offered Junior Suites - so I wanted one.

      The room was fantastic and the charge - just 30 Euros per night extra - well worth it and turned the experience to an upper 4 star hotel.

      The breakfast - well I'm not keen on continental breakfasts, but it looked adequate. I'm quite fussy and stuck to toast, juice and coffee.

      The location is superb, just a couple of minutes walk from the main square featuring hundreds of restaurants and cafés/ bars.

      Good Place to Stay


      We have just returned from krakow and had a lovely stay at this hotel the room was basic but clean the hotel staff very helpful and most spoke good english especially guy on reception great location just 5 mins walk from town square only drawback was no fridge in room for cold drinks but that wouldnt put me off i would stay here again.

      Well situated


      We have just arrived back fron staying at this lovely hotel. It is so well situated just a few 100m from the main square also its just a 5min walk to the train station. The staff were pleasent, rooms kept very clean, breakfast as you would expect.

      One of the recptionists saved us loads of pz by telling us exactly how to get to all major tourist places by local bus and that was before we had even seen our room.

      The lift had broken down when we arrived and had not been fixed by Friday, but I am not sure how fast they work in Poland.

      Central good hotel


      Very central hotel 2 minutes walk from central square. pubs and restaurants all around. Orange and aubergine decor, new tastefull building.

      Great breakfast, pleasent staff, english speaking.

      Super Little Hotel


      This was my third visit to Krakow with my husband and the first time at the Classic. What a super little hotel situated in a fairly quiet part of the town.

      The staff were most helpful and friendly and breakfast more than adequate with scrambled eggs and sausages as well as the usual cold buffet.

      We had no problem with noise whatsover. Will definitely visit this hotel again.

      Great Location, but...


      The hotel is centrally located, under five minutes walk from the Rynek Glowny. Staff are friendly, breakfasts are nice and the rooms are clean and modern. Now for the bad bit....The walls are way too thin so you get quite a bit of noise from adjacent rooms. There is also a club/music bar just over the road so if you have a front facing room you get constant noise as people are leaving (until approximately 3am).

      Pleasant stay in Krakow


      I just returned from a long weekend at the Classic Old Town in Krakow. The hotel was very centrally located, about 3-5 minutes walk to the main square, shops, restaurants and bars. The room was quite large for Europe, and while the decor could use some updating, the room and bathroom were spotless. The front desk staff was extremely helpful and friendly, and responded immediately to all of our requests. This hotel is a solid launching point for exploring Krakow.

Once we got to our end destination there was a little town with all kinds of shops and restaurants. Our program faves us all lunches to bring so we didn't have to buy anything. The food here is actually good, and it's even better that I ...

      Marian comes out to greet us with a big smile on his face. He clearly was thrilled to see Paul.
      This time when I greeted Stasia I made a point of saying Hello not Goodbye.
      I am sure she was thinking to herself, what is this crazy lady going to say to me today?

      Veggie soup with small homemade dumplings, schnitzel and potatoes with cucumber salad and more cherry compot for our drink was our lunch today. All very tasty.

      ... a map and set out to explore the two large areas that the reception man had circled as "must see" places. He literally just circled the whole old town and the Jewish section. I guess it was up to us to pick out what we wanted to see and what we deemed to be important. On our walk we noticed a post that had a bunch of cities pointing in every direction with how far away it is from Krakow. We noticed that Rochester was one of the cities, Rochester NY? Maybe.

      ... Auschwitz in the coming days- and was preparing mentally to come face to face with the atrocities- and chilling images of how a group of humans had annihilated another group of other humans. I was continually pushing it down in my consciousness- but a part of me wondered how everyone could be so normal and laugh and have fun. Don’t they know what happened HERE. I wanted to talk to someone about it- so I did.

      The Jewish ghetto area is quite trendy and I ...

We walked down the path that led Jews directly from the trains to the gas chambers, and then our guide showed us the pond where thousands of people's ashes were thrown after they were cremated in massive fires. It's unbelievable to think that what happened there went on for years! Everyone was very solemn when we got back on the bus, and then all 4 of us slept the whole way ...
