Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Krakow City Center
An excellent hotel especially for the price 99 euro per night in November booked on their website. It was clean and provided every amenity. Probably the only thing to let it down was its lobby which was not impressive, rather dull,unwelcoming and cold in the Krakow sub-zero temperatures. The included breakfast was really super for the contintent, the staff were not exceptional but certainly courteous enough to avoid complaint. Well positioned it is 5 mins from the town square, airport taxi fare was 60 zolty and about 20 mins away. We took a taxi for a day long trip to Auszwitz and Berkenau for 200 zolty, a memorable trip not to be missed. The city tor organised by the hotel was 120zolty each, not worth it I felt, buy a guide book and use taxis that way you spend time where you want.
Great location and helpful staff
I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in late November 2005 with my wife. The hotel was in a great location- very close to the old town just like all the other reviewers have mentioned. Breakfast was good with something for everyone . The room I stayed in was large and was very clean. In room safe was free to use which was a bonus. The staff at this hotel were excellent. They were very efficient and were a credit to the holiday inn chain. For example I needed to use housekeeping on at least four occasions for extra towels, shower caps etc and each time they had delivered my request within 5 minutes! You cant ask for better service. I would definately stay in this hotel again and would recommend it for the price you pay which is very reasonable.
Great Hotel and location
Stayed here for three nights with my husband. Very nice, clean hotel with very friendly staff. The room was of a decent size and the bathroom was spotless...The hotel was located about 250 meters from the Town Square, so was in easy reach of all the sights and restaurants.
If I ever have the opportunity to go to Krakow again I would not hesitate to stay here. Would have no problems recommending this hotel to anyone..
Good hotel with great service
Stayed here three days with family and friends. The hotel was spotlessly clean (not always the case in Poland) and the rooms were quiet (rare in Poland) and the help were pleasant and accomodating (even for Poland!) The breakfast buffets were excellent, and very attractive. The hotel is in an excellent location, close to the main square and the other top Krakov attractions. We would stay there again!
Loved this little Hotel..Everyone was so nice. Well located. Would stay there again!!
Great place! Great location and staff
Stayed here for a week while my fiancee was on business. The rooms are very nice and cozy... bed was comfortable and room was extremely clean. All of the front desk/restaurant staff speaks very good English and were helpful in dishing out tour guides and other local information. The business center has 2 computers with internet access that were almost always free. Breakfast was good but got to be pretty monotonous since it was exactly the same every day... not much variety but good, nevertheless. Great location near the Old Town Square which is the main area of town...only about a 5 minute walk Right on the tram line also. Would highly recommend.
Fine Place to Stay
This is truly a fine hotel. Service is very nice and the rooms are super clean, well maintained and comfortable. The breakfast is extensive and the hotel overall is most pleasant. The business center has two computers for guest use and you can plug your laptop into a jack there for high speed access at no charge (for now). The in-room safes are nice as well. But the really great thing about this hotel is its location. The tram stops just outside the hotel and it's one stop to the main station and two stops in the other direction to Kazimierz, While not located within the old town, it's just 5 min walk to the main square since this hotel is just on the periphery. I think it's probably more convenient than some hotels within the old town and certainly affords modern comforts that many of us appreciate. Highly recommend this Holiday Inn.
Stayed here over New Years 2004-2005. Great hotel, the staff are very friendly and a great price too. Great location 5 mins walk to the square, 10 mins walk to castle and 1 minute to tram stop. Rooms are nice and comfy and warm. Breakie was more expensive than outside the hotel (whats new), all you can eat for about €10. If your on a tight budget or not a morning person might be worth while eating outside the hotel. Overall very good, would stay here again!
Great value and location
This hotel is in an unbeatable location for sightseeing. It is a five minute walk from the Town Square and provides a good base for visiting all the major attractions in town on foot and for sampling a variety of restaurants and shops nearby. The rates included a substantial buffet breakfast daily, you can start your day with a "bottomless" cup of coffee.
The room is spacious with comfortable beds, bathroom is equipped with all the standard amenities and has a great shower.
Although it does not have any distinctive charm or character of some European hotels, it is a great value and more than adequate for any tourists who want convenience, comfort and a certain level of service expected of an international hotel chain. This hotel did not disappoint.
Nice and well place hotel
I didn't book this hotel, since it was part of a package for a course I attended, so I can't say anything about their reservation routines. But everything else was quite good. My room on the first floor was spacious and had a nice bathroom as well. The beds were commented on by everyone as "very nice". The breakfast buffet was good, with smoked fish, cheeses, cold cuts, pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausages, fruits, youghurts, cereals, serveral juices and rolls and 2-3 types of bread. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is just 5 minutes on foot from the main square. The hotel is a typical "international hotel" without too much personality, but it was pleasant and a place I would go back to.

... route to Olomouc and decide to check out a possible forest near Dvorce. This is a mistake - the path is narrow, bumpy and covered in snow,
the 'forest' is actually on a steep hill and when we are nearly all the way around the loop, we find out path blocked by fallen trees (this seems awfully familiar...) and have to reverse for most of a mile before turning. We find a little spot in a small car park in nearby Bilcice and get nested for the evening. S xx
... free but decided to enjoy the lie in - particularly as the rain was pouring down outside. I finally had to give into the hunger pangs and get up at midday. Thomas, however, was not feeling so peachy. At the mention of breakfast he informed me that he wasn't ready to stand up yet so certainly wouldn't be eating for a while! I breakfasted alone and enjoyed hearing others relay their tales of the night before. By 2 o'clock I was feeling a little stir crazy while Tom still wasn't ...
... for any rain this time (no thongs and a rain coat). We started with the "Old Town" tour, which visits the various monuments and notable buildings in the main tourist area of Krakow, and bits of it were interesting but the tour guide didn't really engage us. She wasn't as funny as tour guides we've had, and we spent too long at each location. The rain was on and off, sometimes really heavy, and eventually the tour ended at Krakow Castle, so we made our ...

The mine began operations in the Middle Ages, providing an alternate source of salt (so imortant then for food preservation), to evaporated water from salt marshes and seas. Aside from the enormity of the mine itself one another attraction is the ...
... next morning was a quiet one spent wandering around town. We found a New Zealand burger bar called ‘Moa Burger’ where we had lunch (Ian thinks it was the best burger he’s had) before we started our trip to Prague. The hostel had told us the cheapest way was to bus to the border town of Cieszyn and then walk to the Czech Republic and train to Prague so we spent the night in a hotel in this tiny town.
The next morning was Ian’s birthday ...
