Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Matejko Krakow
I loved this hotel, the location can't be beaten,apart from being very close to the town centre,it is also a five minute walk from the main railway station meaning getting around (inclucing to and fron the airport) is very easy.There is a tourist office on the same square where tours can be booked to Aushwitz and the salt mines etc. if that's what you prefer. The rooms are a good size and our lovely shower room was newly done. The staff were very helpful,the included breakfast very good and plentiful. A big bonus was that the hotel,despite being so central,was very peaceful, and very quiet at night giving us a good nights sleep in the clean and comfortable beds.
Übernachten Sie hier!
Ich bin von diesem Hotel begeistert. Die Lage ist unschlagbar, es ist sehr nahe am Stadtzentrum, bis zum Hauptbahnhof geht man fünf Minuten, so kann man ganz leicht herumkommen (auch zum Flughafen). Am gleichen Platz ist auch eine Touristeninfostelle, dort kann man Ausflüge nach Auschwitz und zu den Salzminen buchen wenn Sie das gerne sehen möchten.
Die Zimmer sind recht groß und unser tolles Bad war neu renoviert worden. Die Angestellten sind sehr hilfsbereit, das im Preis enthaltene Frühstück war sehr gut und reichhaltig. Ein großer Pluspunkt war, dass das Hotel trotz der zentralen Lage sehr friedlich war. Nachts war es sehr ruhig und so konnten wir in den sauberen und komfortablen Betten gut schlafen.
Just returned from 4 day break in Krakow, stayed at Matejko hotel, excellent location and very very clean. 2 minute walk from Floranska gate and street, which leads directly into the market place. Altho the hotel was given a four star rating, we found it a little basic, but that being said, for the rate we paid, would have no hesitation in recommending it to other travellers
Sehr, sehr sauber
Komme gerade von einem viertägigen Besuch aus Krakau zurück, ich war im Hotel Matejko. Die Lage ist klasse und es ist sehr, sehr sauber. Bis zum Floranska Tor geht man nur zwei Minuten, von dort kommt man direkt auf den Marktplatz. Das Hotel hat zwar vier Sterne aber wir fanden es recht einfach. Aber für den Preis, den wir gezahlt haben, würde ich es ohne zu zögern anderen Reisenden empfehlen.
Lohnt wirklich einen Besucht
Die Lage des Hotels ist fantastisch, in Nähe der Stadt und innerhalb von fünf Gehminuten ist man am Marktplatz. Es gab das übliche kontinentale Frühstück aber es gab jede Menge. Das Zimmer war gut, sauber und ausreichend. Ich fand das Hotel rundherum wirklich schön für einen Aufenthalt.
Really worth a visit
I found the hotel to be in a fantastic location - close to the town - 5 mins to main square
Breakfast usual continental but plenty of it
Room was good - clean and adequate
In all I found the hotel to be a really nice place to stay
Great location, excellent value for money
As this was our first visit to Krakow we wanted a centrally located, average hotel but without spending too much money. What we found with the Matejko was excellent value for money, very clean and in a brilliant location.
The hotel is an easy 5 minute walk from the bus and train stations, just round the corner from the most amazing shopping centre (loads of designer shops in there as well as a H & M and a C & A!!) and only a very easy 5 minute stroll from the heart of the old town.
We had a room on the 4th floor - served by a lift as well as stairs, which although not luxurious, was certainly more than adequate for a long weekend stay. The only criticism of the room is the lack of tea and coffee making facilities - next time I'll take a travel kettle. There is also no mini bar in the room - but with so many bars in the vicinity who wants to drink in their room - just get out into town and enjoy!!
Krakow is a fascinating place - I was amazed at how clean it is. even in the smallest underground bars the toilets are spotless - puts the UK to shame. The people are very friendly, many do not speak much if any English but will try to help all the same.
Eating out is very good and incredibly cheap - there is a MacD's as well as KFC if you like that sort of thing, but the local burgers are excellent and the chicken kebabs are great - try them.
We did a trip to Zakopane on the local bus - it takes about 2.5 hours and costs 15zl - about £3, well worth it.
We'll certainly be going back to Poland, Krakow was fantastic and well worth visiting before the English lager louts discover the cheap beer!
Just back from a three night stay in this hotel, and can definitely recommend it to anyone. Staff were very nice, helpful, and courteous.
The breakfast was very good, and included cereals, fruit juices, breads and rolls, tea/coffee, cold ham, cheese and eggs, and hot cooked sausages.
The hotel location is excellent - just a short walk from the main station, and from the old town square (an excellent little pizzeria on the way down to the square is Vesuvio [in the cellars of the hotel Floryan, ul. Florianska 38] - try it, you'll not be disappointed...)
We will definitely be back to Krakow, and would have no hesitation is using this hotel again (ps room 201 overlooks the square - a twin bedded, excellent room).
We have just returned from a 5 day stay at the Matejko Hotel. Initially we were allocated Room 209, situated adjacant to the building next door, which was in the process of being refurbished. We therefore experienced drilling and banging early one morning. However at our request we were moved to a different room without too much difficulty. Breakfast each morning consisted of the usual cold buffet, which was adequate but rather unexciting. The hotel is very well placed to explore the Old Town and made an excellent base. We noticed that the hotel was placed in the "luxury" category of the Krakow inyourpockect guide which is rather misleading as it a mid priced hotel at best. Overall considering that we paid 50 euro (using travel Poland website) a night this represented value for money.
Very good value
We stayed here in March 2006.Could not fault anything about the hotel.Will be staying here again.Ask for room 305 if available,so much space with a balcony overlooking the square.

... the Poles had kings they were elected by the aristocracy for life and you didn't need to be Polish to be elected. No hereditary monarchy here, apparently. Who knew? While touring the complex the rain started to fall on Kraków. This meant that we got to see impressive dragon water spouts dumping the rain into the courtyard in huge waterfalls and also that at the end of the castle experience we decided to beat a retreat to ...
... work, likely for a Jewish organization although she, too, is Christian. The staff jokes that she will one day be Prime Minister of Poland; it is only partly a joke, because she is very impressive. While she liked the JCCs she saw in the Bay Area and in Dallas, she was a little disappointed that all the focus was on the Wellness Centers, the gyms, in America, and not on Jewish culture. The JCC’s in the US weren’t Jewish ...
... spinach perogies! Love love love it!
I spent the day wandering around the old town. Krakow is very wanderable. (as are most European cities). At some point I left the old city, walked along the river bank and found another area of town with cute little restaurants and bars. One thing I noticed is that Krakow is much cheaper than Prague. A beer in Krakow cost about $1.50, whereas Prague was ...
... years, and has taken on a bustling bohemian feel, with lots of funky shops, cafes and arty areas. It is a great people watching place, and also one of the best nightlife areas in the city, with everything from dingy dark candlelit "pre-war mystique" bars to fabulous beer gardens and vacant blocks with slow food street vendors (where we had the best hamburgers ever) under walls covered in amazing street art.
We decided to take a free street art walking tour, as the map we ...
... That was one of those times that I really wished I'd had a paper map (next time, I'll bring one). I managed to get back on track after a while. The roads were great though, and the scenery was spectacular! Even though slightly worrying - it is also an amazing feeling to be all alone up on a mountain road surrounded by a huge forest. I left Budapest rather late, so I didn't arrive in Vysoke Tatry until like 17.30. I asked some lady there for recommendations on where to eat and ...
