          Decent sized room, with lots of wardrobe space and big bathroom with ample hot water (sometimes a woorry in old hotels).

          Slippers provided and bathrobes which is a nice touch, especially as I think the carpet has seen better days.

          Lift worked well, which again can be unusual in a old hotel.

          Location is brilliant, as a short walk to the train station, and the centre square. We walked from here to old town, Wawel, then jewish quarter and back. Good way to spend a day. However it is not on the main drag, so is not noisy at night.

          Breakfast is a good spread in a pleasant room, with eggs and bacon etc cooked to order, plus a decent buffet including some local hams, cheeses and sausages. Plus a big pot of lard if you fancy it..

          Breakfast served til 11am, and checkout at midday which was all good for us people that like a lie in.

          Wifi worked well throughout hotel.

          A good experience with friendly staff and recommended.

          Bit musty and stuffy, but windows open to clear the air. On the downside, in summer a fair few bugs entered if you do this. There is some kind of air con / fan unit in the room, but we did not use this.

          Curtains are quite thin, so light enters in the mornings.

          Cracking Krakow

          A travel blog entry by mothman on Aug 26, 2016

          Earlier this year we looked at the places with cheap flights for the bank holiday weekend and Kracow was an option, hence here we came. Easyjey flight after work, arrived a couple of hours later - just missed a train, so waited 30 mins for the next. Then to central station. Walked about 10 mins to hotel and went to bed.

          Lie in, great …

          Krakow - wow!

Buildings of 70 toilets (hole with a bucket) with prisoners sitting back to back, buildings with bunks of straw with 8 in each bunk, with Dysentry leaking through, all surrounded by lookout huts towering above the barbed wire fences keeping them in. Both gas chambers and crematoriums had been blown up prior to being liberated in their place memorials have been built. It was an incredible, moving place but ...

The first mining was known to be in the 17th century; then in the area where salt was mined in the 1800s they have a restaurant and an entire banquet hall. Finally, the way up you didn't need to climb the stairs but 6 people needed to squeeze into a metal cage (or more like a bucket) ...

The fancy computer displays were slow, and most visitors gave up on them entirely. The only interesting exhibit was a brief story board about burial sites excavated showing signs of vampirism (or at least, suspicion that the deceased were vampires), as the bodies had been tied up in strange ways, decapitated and other stange rituals performed, to ...
