Once on the bus we make another wrong move and get out too early.

Anyway to cut a long story short we eventually found a taxi and got to our accommodation. It was in the opposite direction from here we had gone and was a 20 minute walk from the bus stop.

Ironically if we'd stayed on the bus back into town we would have ended up within 100 metres of where we stayed.

Not a good start for Krakow.

... departed from. After about 7 stops, I got off at what I thought was my stop, but I quickly discovered I was nowhere close. I walked around for a few minutes to try to orient myself, but it was clear that I was not within walking distance of the old town. There was a tiny map of the tram system at the stop, and having forgotten the name of my stop (I find Polish names to be long and quite confusing), I had to try my best to decipher where I needed to end ...

... taking us to the car park where we'll meet up with the others driving down to MWM in Hokovce, Slovakia, and off we'll go. Can't believe today could be the day that we make it to Slovakia.  This trip has been planned for SO long, has taken SO much effort to arrange and has taken SO long to get here!!!  But given the transport choice, there were so many ways we might not've made it.... but don't let me jinx it yet...!   Hopefully next blog will be from Hokovce, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Orbis Cracovia Krakow

Eine positive Erfahrung

from

Nachdem ich einige der Kommentare gelesen hatte, habe ich das Schlimmste befürchtet, doch wurden wir angenehm überrascht. Das Zimmer war groß und luftig, das Mobiliar zwar etwas altmodisch, aber irgendwie passend und es gab genügend Stauraum. Alles war sauber und das Badezimmer war sehr groß und hatte eine gute Dusche. Wir waren im vierten Stock und der Verkehrslärm war besonders nachts relativ laut, aber dafür kann man das Hotel ja nicht verantwortlich machen. Das Frühstück war wunderbar, es gab ein riesiges Büffet mit einer großen Auswahl. Man konnte Eier auf viele verschiedene Arten zubereitet haben, es gab eine Käseauswahl, Fleisch, Fisch, verschiedene Brotsorten, Müsli und Cornflakes mit einer großen Auswahl an getrockneten Früchten und Körnern, verschiedene Obstsäfte sowie Tee und Kaffee. Die Angestellten waren freundlich und es gab keinerlei Probleme. Es gab auch ein Kasino, ein Restaurant und ein Geschäft, das Bernsteinschmuck verkauft hat. Wir hatten keine Beschwerden und würden wieder in dieses Hotel fahren.

Akzeptables Budgethotel

from

Ich bin gerade von einem 2tägigen Aufenthalt im Cracovia Hotel in Krakau, Polen, zurückgekehrt. Im Großen und Ganzen war das Hotel akzeptabel und es hatte ein tolles Preis- Leistungsverhältnis (wesentlich bessere Raten, als jene, die auf der Tripadvisor Webseite angegeben werden). Tolle Lage, nur 5 - 10 Minuten zu Fuß zum Marktplatz. Erwarten Sie allerdings keinen Luxus, die Einrichtung, die Uniformen, alles schien in den 70er Jahren stecken geblieben zu sein. Es ist ein SEHR großes Hotel mit einem netten Kasino und einem relativ guten Service. Die Zimmer, das Essen, die Sauberkeit, die Einrichtung waren alle mittelmäßig. Wählen Sie dieses Hotel, wenn Sie ein preiswertes Haus in zentraler Lage suchen, auf keinem Fall jedoch, wenn Sie Luxus um sich haben möchten. Eine Warnung an die Leute mit Kindern oder an jene, die vielleicht etwas zu viel getrunken haben: Die Fenster im Hotelzimmer sind sehr äußerst unsicher, sie sind knapp 2 Meter hoch und 1 Meter breit und werden wie eine Tür nach innen geöffnet, der untere Teil des Fenster ist jedoch nur wenige Zentimeter vom Fußboden entfernt. Also Warnung: Es gibt keine Gitter oder einen Balkon, der einen davon abhält, einfach aus dem Fenster zu laufen und nach unten zu stürzen. Also nochmals: Falls Sie Kinder haben, auf jedem Fall Vorsicht walten lassen.

A positive experience.

After reading some of the poor reviews, I expected the worst, but I was pleasantly surprised

Got Robbed!

from

Good cheap hotel with dated furniture, good casino and good breafast.

Acceptable Budget Hotel

from

I've just returned from a two night stay at the Cracovia Hotel, Krakow, Poland.

Great location for an old and noisy building

from

I stayed at Cracovia Hotel for the New Year's Eve: it is the right choice if you are looking for a cheap hotel near to the city centre (book from their web site - ---). You will have what you expect from a 3 stars hotel: spacious rooms (but with old furnishment), a good international breakfast and helpful staff. But if you are looking a place with some atmosphere, avoid this hotel: this is probably the most popular choice for busloads of tourists in Krakow!

Tired but adequate hotel

from

We stayed at the Cracovia for 4 nights in October. The rooms were furnished with a lot of functional but dated furniture. The staff was minimally helpful. The buffet breakfasts were adequate. The location was a quick 10 minute walk to the center of the old city square.

No Respect for Hotel Guest's Privacy / Overbooks

from

- Hotel Orbis Cracovia Hotel overbooks.

- Hotel Orbis Cracovia Hotel packed suitcase without guest's knowledge and forced registered guest to move to another hotel.

Upon returning to the Orbis Cracovia Hotel in the afternoon of my third day I was shocked to find out that all of my personal belongings had been packed into boxes and bags by the hotel staff and taken to the reception area. I was informed that they had overbooked and needed my room. In the end I stayed at a nice hotel, at their cost, for my last night in Krakow, but the hassle I had and the brutal invasion of privacy which I experienced will never be forgotten. I do not recommend this hotel at all.

Great place to stay

from

We stayed at this hotel for one night & it was a nice place. Previously we had spent two nights at another hotel (from hell) & so we were very pleased with our room at the Cracovia. The staff was courteous & the location was convenient. Service wise it was very good. The hotel will exchange currency right on the premises for you & they sell stamps so you don't have to try to track down a post office to send postcards. The hotel restaurant was also great for breakfast & the atmosphere was pleasant.

Great Hotel in a wonderful city!!!

from

The hotel and restaurant were superb, but the (female) staff were somewhat unconcerned and aloof. Polish women have a better demeanor.
